There are a number of reasons why your clients lift may not have taken properly. Please check out our tips below as there may be something which you can tweak to get those all important results.
** Recent Update : Due to COVID-19 and Recent findings of the Vaccination, if your client has previously experienced perfect lifts, being exposed to the virus and/or vaccine could affect future lift results
- If your client is going through any hormonal changes within their body due to reasons such as, pregnancy or breast feeding, their lift may not take as well as you would have hoped.
- Often the hairs are under processed which results in a failed lift. If this is the case, you may re-lift within 48 hours using significantly reduced timings.
- Using too much bonder can cause a barrier between the hairs and the solutions. If your bonder is white and flaky, you have used too much.
- Hair placement - whether it is a brow lamination or a lash lift, how you place the hairs will be how they set so make sure they are PERFECT!
- Product placement also plays a huge part in whether or not a lift takes. Make sure you are putting the product as close to the roots as you can get without touching the skin (for a lash lift).
- Shield placement - It is important that the shield is as close to the lash line as possible. If your shield or rod does not fit snuggly on the lash line, it will result in a poor lift.
- Make sure your sachets have been properly massaged before treatment to ensure all of the gorgeous ingredients are blended together.
- Remember in colder weather, it often helps to warm the sachets up before use. Just pop them onto of a wax heater or in your pocket for 5 minutes before the treatment.
- Be sure not to flip the eyelid so the waterline is exposed when performing a lash lift treatment as this will most likely result in a failed lift.
- Make sure absolutely NO WATER included damp cotton pads were used throughout the treatment and for 24-48 hours post treatment.
- If you were happy with the results of your clients brow lamination or lash lift but the lift has since dropped, this could be an issue with aftercare. Make sure your client understands the importance of aftercare and is willing to follow through with this post treatment. If they are not, they are probably unsuitable candidates for the treatment.
However experienced we are as technicians sometimes things go wrong and it can be disappointing and frustrating. One of the most deflating experiences is when a lift does not take properly. If you are still unsure as to what has happened, please get in touch with us.
We will need to see a photo of before, during and after the treatment to properly assess what could have gone wrong so please attach these to your enquiry.
