Is brow lamination damaging to the brows?
The chemical process of breaking the disulphide bonds within the brow hair is damaging to the hair if not performed correctly. This means that the treatment result or condition of the client’s brows is very much in the control of the user of the products. Over-processing the time on the brows means the bonds are either not able to be reformed well enough or they break so far that they over-process. The inclusion of Elleeplex ReGen Next Gen partnered with our unique lamination formula in the lamination lotion offers moisture, nourishment, and support to the brow hair while the bonds are being broken in order to soften the hair and provide support.
I’m allergic to lash and brow tints – Can I have a brow lamination?
The ingredients found most likely to cause sensitivities from a lash or brow tint are not the same ingredients as found in a lamination product so performing a brow lamination is safe as long as it is not followed with a brow tint. For all clients that express sensitivities in previous services it is best to review if they have had an ingredient allergy test performed by a dermatologist or allergist. There could be more than one ingredient that they are sensitive to and of course performing a patch test is mandatory.
What can I do if my client’s brows are over-processed and damage occurs?
You could offer Elleeplex aftercare as a conditioning and nourishing lotion for your client’s brows that they can apply daily to help with not only with nourishment but also with styling. This will help to support the brows and offer much needed nourishment to repair and regrow them into healthy brows again.
What can I do if my client’s brows have not laminated enough?
There are a few things to consider: Firstly, you must check the product expiry date and if the product has been properly stored. Secondly, check the ethnicity of your client’s background, perhaps the strength or genetic structure of the hair means they require a longer processing time. Thirdly, consistent placement of the lotion and appropriate amount of stretch applied to the brow hairs.
Can you fix uneven laminated eyebrows?
It is possible that some clients have a stronger follicular direction on one brow. If this is the case, you might need to notate this on the client card and compensate for this when they come in by processing the stronger brow for longer.
What should I do if the lamination has dropped after the tint?
Using another brand of brow tint other than Elleeplex Profusion Lash and Brow Tints combined with the Elleeplex Oxydant can result in a brow lamination dropping.
Can my client wear brow make-up?
Absolutely – it is recommended however, to avoid brow make-up for a few days after the brow lamination service has been completed. If you have tinted their brows there is not much more required as they will not be washing or rinsing for the first 24 – 48 hours and their brows will look fabulous. It is okay to use Elleebana Precision Brow Series pencils only for a minor touch up after the service to fill in any small imperfections. After that initial period, use a brow make-up product such as Elleebana Precision Brow Series which has a fine tip and a lovely waxy finish for creating both a shadowed blended finish or a defined wispy top line to compliment the laminated look.
When should I re-book my client for a re-lamination?
A client can have a brow lamination as soon as they would like to, we generally say a lamination should last up to 6 – 8 weeks or more on clients, however, the brow growth cycle must be taken into account and often brows will take longer to regrow than your lash clients will. If you notice your client has a lot of baby brow growth coming through you may wish to point this out to them and recommend that they re-book their next lamination for sooner than 6 weeks – perhaps 4 weeks might suit. Other clients might experience an extremely slow brow regrowth process and only need a lamination every 8 – 10 weeks. Performing a brow tint will require a top up service together with a new shape sooner so combining tint, with Elleeplex Re-GEN Next Gen with your 4 week tint and tidy is a hydration boost to the hairs to keep them looking lovely for longer.
