Yumi lash lifts are a great alternative to lash extensions or growth serums. They differ to lash perms in that instead of the tight curl a rod/roller will give you – resulting in lashes that can sometimes look even shorter – your lashes are “lifted” using curved silicone forms and keratin, giving a gradual curl that makes your lashes look really long.
What is keratin?
Keratin is a strong, fibrous protein naturally found in your hair, skin and nails. These keratin proteins are in each individual hair shaft. And each protein is held together by disulphide and hydrogen bonds. Hair types (curly, straight, wavy, etc.) are determined by these bonds.
The Yumi lash lift method
It’s pretty simple on your part. You lie down and shut your eyes. Shields are taped underneath the eye, on top of the lower lashes, to protect them during the treatment. Silicone moulds are then placed on closed eyelids; the size depends on the level of lift and curl that you desire. Next, lashes are combed backwards onto the moulds (this sets the shape), and perming treatment is applied to the roots. After approximately 10 minutes, the treatment is removed and a neutraliser is applied. A tint is applied to deepen colour and lashes are released from the mould with a condition serum, and gently combed loose.
Does it hurt?
There’s no pain or discomfort beyond the normal someone’s-doing-something-in-my-eye-region. Expect your appointment to last about 1.5 hours – a little longer than a lash perm.
After your Yumi lash lift
It’s important not to get your lashes wet for 48 hours. That means keeping them dry while showering, taking your makeup off or crying with joy at how gorgeous your lashes are.
How long does it last?
A Yumi keratin lash lift can last up to 12 weeks, so you should wait at least eight weeks between treatments.
