What if we told you it’s possible to have long, thick, dark eyelashes without the use of goopy false eyelashes or everyday mascara wear? The Elleebana Lash Lift may be just the treatment you’ve been waiting for, promising length and curl from a simple perm and tint. It’s time to ditch the eyelash curler and give this hot new trend a try.
WHAT EXACTLY IS ELLEEBANA?
Elleebana is a relatively newer lash lift serum brand containing ingredients that extend the natural life cycle of your lash hairs. Like a perm for your hair, they also chemically alter the structure of the hair shaft to make it appear fuller, longer, and curlier.
The Elleebana Lash Lift is really only “new” to the American market. In reality, this brand has been around for a very long time. People have been using it for more than 20 years in Australia, often with incredible results! Here on U.S. soil, it quickly gained remarkable popularity almost immediately after FDA approval.
Elleebana formulas generally contain a variety of important ingredients, like thioglycolic acid, sodium bromate, ethanolamine, lanolin, polyquaternium-6, and octylphenol ethoxylate. Some of these provide the perming effect, while others deeply moisturize the hair shaft and plump it for greater visibility.
WHY USE ELLEEBANA?
Lash treatments are always considered semi-permanent due to the life cycle of your natural lashes. Even though Elleebana extends that life cycle, the hair follicle will eventually force it to shed and regrow. Sorry, science can’t stop cellular death just yet, even in your lashes!
But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t bother with Elleebana; in fact, just the opposite is true. If you use it on a scheduled basis, it can help you get the most out of each and every lash hair as and when they grow.
Mascaras can be messy and lash curlers can kink your lashes, giving them an awkward appearance. A lash lift with a tint gives you the same effects without you having to go through your day worrying about smudging your makeup, running in the rain (or after an emotional day), or clumping from sub-par makeup products.
Love the color of your lashes but not the way they curl? You can have a lift done without a tint, too. Love the way they curl but not the color? That’s a common problem, too, especially among people with very light lashes (calling all the beautiful gingers out there: this is your fix!) You can have a tint done without a lift. Chose one or both based on your needs at any given time.
BENEFITS OF ELLEEBANA LASH LIFT
Yes, there are other lash lift options on the market, but Elleebana is definitely a favorite among aestheticians and lash technicians. Why?
WHAT TO EXPECT
A lot of women wonder if Elleebana shares similarities with older lash lifts that came out in the 80s, many of which were irritating or even risky. In truth, the procedures are nothing alike at all. Older lash lifts used larger rollers that curled women’s eyelashes back way too far, often causing breakage and pulling the hair out by the root. Ouch!
Instead of this undesired pulling, Elleebana uses a much smaller silicone pad roller that’s better sized for human eyelashes. Your technician has much more control over where your lashes end up, whether curled or straightened. The end result is a brighter, more awakened look without irritation or that stereotypical doll-like shocked appearance so obvious in old-school glamour shots.
Lastly, treatment is very quick. In fact, it’s so fast you should plan to integrate Elleebana with another treatment if you want to make a day of it.
Once your lash lift is applied, keep your lashes dry for at least a full 24 hours. Avoid excessive heat from the sun, steam rooms, or saunas just to give the treatment time to really lock in. Once the first day is up, you can go back to your regular daily routine.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST FOR?
Everyone is different, but results last anywhere from eight to 10 weeks for most people who have an Elleebana lash lift. Aim to have a short maintenance procedure at around the six or eight-week mark to catch new lash growth and lift it evenly with the rest of your lashes. In the extremely rare case that your lashes don’t hold, you can have a second procedure as early as 30 days after your initial appointment.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
This is the best part. While prices vary spa to spa, many offer Elleebana Lash Lifts for as little as $50 to $60. That’s inexpensive even compared to extensions and even what you end up paying for disposables! Long, lush lashes are not only possible, but they’re affordable as well.
