Here is How to Straighten Eyelashes at Home When They’re Too Curly for Your Liking
Step 1: Take a Shower
Taking a shower right after your lift or perm sesh can quickly break down the product.
Step 2: Apply Castor Oil
Though any type of oil works well, we highly recommend Castor oil because not only will it help reversing the treatment, but it’s also a great natural oil for thickening and lengthening your natural lashes. Check out 10 of our favourite Castor oil picks here.
Simply apply a thin layer of the oil directly on the lashes to break down the keratin formula.
Step 3: Use an Eyelash Curler for a Subtle Lash Lift
Doing so helps to reduce the keratin even more, as well as really push the Castor oil into your lashes for maximum benefits.
Meanwhile, Here is How You Can Partially Reverse the Perm if You Wish to Remain Some of Its Curls
Step1: Apply Perm Solution
Using a spoolie, apply an adequate amount of perm solution to the lashes you deemed overly curly. Slowly brush from the roots down the ends and add more perm solution along the way. Continue this step until the overly permed lashes begin to straighten out. This shouldn’t take more than 2-5 minutes.
Step 2: Remove the Perm Solution
Gently remove the perm solution using a cotton pad to soak it off your eyelashes. Be careful not to pull on your lashes while doing this step. Pressing the cotton pad gently on top of your lashes can easily do the trick.
Step 3: Apply Setting Solution
Using another spoolie, apply a small amount of setting solution to your lashes. Brush gently from the roots and move your way down the ends. This step should take no longer than 1 minute.
Step 4: Remove Excess Setting Solution
Use a cotton pad to soak off the excess setting solution. Again, press the cotton pad gently on top of your lashes to avoid pulling them.
If you’ve followed all the instructions and steps accordingly, you’ll notice that your eyelashes have relaxed a little and you’ll still see curls in them.
Finally, use the spoolie and give your lashes a final brush and curl them the way you want.
