Brow lamination is the latest eyebrow on the beauty market today, has helped countless men and women achieve the perfect, natural brow. Giving you stunningly full brows, with no downtime and little commitment. Have your brows shaped and set in a way that perfectly complements your face shape and enhances your beauty.
With any hair perm, comes the question: Does brow lamination damage my brows? In this post, we will outline everything you need to know about brow lamination.
What are Laminated Brows?
Eyebrow lamination is the secret o getting high-shine, perfectly shaped, full brows. Unlike microblading, needles and colouring are not involved. This technique uses a perming solution to temporarily bond and straightens each individual hair.
While it is considered an eyebrow perm, this technique achieves the opposite. By combing the brow hair in the direction you want, it’s possible to cover gaps in your brows and make them appear fuller. This makes it an excellent option for anyone struggling with thin, patchy or unruly brows.
How Long Does Lamination Last?
Brow lamination aims to set your brows into a uniform shape for several weeks at a time. With the right maintenance, you can expect results to last up to two months! To get the most out of your brow lamination service, for the first 24 hours, you should avoid:
- Wetting or rubbing your brows.
- Applying creams and oils to the brow area.
- Applying makeup to your brows.
- Participating in swimming and exercising.
Lamination Vs Microblading?
Brow lamination is an excellent alternative to microblading – especially for those who are looking for a less permanent solution. However, it is important to note that while both procedures result in gorgeous looking brows, their processes are entirely different.
‘Microblading is a cosmetic tattooing procedure that involves implanting pigments into the skin to create hyper-realistic brow hairs. As a semi-permanent technique, micro bladed brows can last up to 5 years, before fully fading. While microblading will produce a fantastic end result, the process requires some downtime.
In contrast, brow lamination lasts up to 8 weeks and requires no downtime or healing. It is a great procedure to see what microbladed brows will look like. Additionally, you can use brow lamination to complement your microblading blading results by increasing the texture of your brows for a fluffier look.
Will Lamination Damage My Brows?
The brow lamination process begins by painting a perming solution onto the brow. Once relaxed, the brow hairs are brushed into shape and a fixing solution is applied to restore the hair bonds.
Just as perming the hair on your head can lead to dryness and damage, brow lamination could potentially damage your eyebrows in the same way.
Brow lamination can be done at home, with a wide variety of kits to choose from. However, if you have little experience using perming solutions you can damage the brow and leading to inflammation and redness.
However, this is avoided as professional estheticians will apply a nourishing solution to replenish your brows and leave them protected, smooth, and shiny. This is crucial to the health of your brows, asking and their longevity.
