All lash lifts work by adhering the lashes onto a mold, breaking the disulphide bonds of the hairs/lashes and then reforming those bonds keeping them locked in the new shape. So what's the difference between a traditional lift (we use industry leader, Elleebana) and the Keratin Lash Infusion? We're breaking down the pros and cons in this blog.
Traditional Lift (Elleebana)
Shape may not relax over time (creating an awkward phase as new lashes grow in)
Dehydrates the lash and creates a stiffer texture
Only the base of the lashes are reshaped (the solution is too harsh for the finer tips)
Cannot be repeated more often than 6 weeks to avoid over-processing
Repeat treatments can result in kinked tips of lashes that were short during prior treatment and have since grown out
Keratin Lash Infusion
100% Damage free guarantee
Leaves lashes softer, stronger and up to 40% thicker.
The lashes can be reshaped from root to tip
The new shape starts to relax at 4-6 weeks so it will blend with new growth
Can be repeated as often as desired (but 6-8 weeks is typical)
Can be done on an over-processed traditional lift to help repair the damage.
Slightly higher investment
Slightly longer appointment (almost a pro because 20 minutes are spent napping with a warm eye mask on).
So, the Keratin Lash Infusion is the clear winner here but for those looking for a quicker service with less investment a traditional lift is still a great option offering lasting results!
