WHAT COMES IN THE LAMINATION KIT

The Skyn Lamination Kit comes with multiple solutions and tools for you to use. Each one of these solutions serves a specific purpose when perming hair. You need one to break through the top layer or the cortex of the hair folicle. Another to perm the hair to create the desired effects, and then one to seal in the perming agent. There are a total of 3 solutions in the kit. We will go into detail about how each solution works and why you need it. 

HOW AN EYELASH LIFT WORKS

The science behind the lash lift is based on perming solutions. You use the perm serums and solutions to create that lifted look. 

The Lash Lift's purpose is to curl the lashes up to create fuller, longer eyelash look. When lash lifting, applying dye, or lightening them you’re working with the cortex part of the brow hair. When performing these procedures they all use hydroxide oxidant, but it’s not the same one used in tint. 

First solution: #1 Perm

The first lifting solution breaks through the outer cortex layer to allow your lifting product to enter inside. In order to break through the cortex the active ingredient is thioglycolic acid. 

This first solution with thioglycolic acid breaks the disulfide bond which is inside of the hair. Doing so relaxes the hair. Hair can lighten when you apply this solution to the eyebrow or lash hairs. Hair lightening is normal from the broken disulfide bonds in the cortex.

It’s important you apply enough of the first solution to break the bonds in the cortex. You should not brush the hairs, your main focus at this point is applying enough solution. Once you apply enough of the solution, brush the eyelashes to their desired place, then you apply a sterile wrap to cover the lashes. A sterile wrap prevents the solution from drying out and allows the hairs to stay in place. Lash lifting solutions can vary in consistency with being thicker, creamier, or thin, runny. If your solution has a thin, runny consistency it’s more susceptible to drying out quicker so make sure you use a sterile plastic cover. For lash lifts, you apply the solution on the lashes, over the mold, and let it sit.

Advise your clients they should not wax before lamination. Wax before lamination can result in redness, agitation, and swelling on the area. If your client does wax before a wax, keep the solution off the wax area. If the solution touches the wax area, wipe away the solution immediately with a Q-tip. 

To remove the first solution, use a dry cotton ball or cotton pad.

second solution: #2 Fixation

The second solution is a neutralizer. It neutralizes the hairs to bring back the cortex’s disulfide bond. If the hair color is lightened, once the second solution neutralizes the hair the color will return.

third solution: #3 Cleanser

The third solution helps to remove any leftover perm or fixation solution. This is what you use once the eyebrow hairs are fixed into their desired position.

FOURTH SOLUTION: #4 NOURISHMENT

The third and final solution seals in the results and serves to retain moisture allowing for the lashes to heal.

Glue

Glue is a vital tool for the lash lifting process. You use this to adhere the lift pads onto the eyelids and you use this to adhere the lashes to the pads. Both are done in the beginning before you start applying any solutions. 

APPLICATION TOOLS

There are two kinds of applicators in the lamination kits. One applicator is the wand. This is the applicator with bristles covering the entire end, similar to that of a mascara wand. This is the applicator you will use to style the brow hairs into their desired shapes. The wands are pictured to the right.

The second applicator are solution applicators. These have the short, soft, white bristles at the end of the end. This is what you will use to apply the solutions onto the brow hairs. The solution applicators are pictured to the left.

clean tools

There are three clean tools in the kit. These tools are what you use first to comb through the hairs to ensure the brow hairs are free of any fabrics or small particles. 

lift pads

In the Lamination Kits you will receive 5 pairs of lift pads to pick from. With 5 options you will be able to work with any client's desired lash look. They comes in Small, Medium, Medium 1, Medium 2, and Large. The sizes go from the smallest lift to the largest one. The curved, thin part of the pads face upward for an easy removal. 

ADDITIONAL ITEMS YOU WILL NEED

Your kit comes with everything you need to perform the procedure, but there are additional items you will need to purchase to make sure you are ready for your clients.
Gloves
Saran Wrap
Cotton rounds


PROCESSING TIMES

When we talk about processing times, we're referring to the amount of time a solution needs to sit on the brows or lashes to achieve the 'perm' look. The hair texture and thickness are the main determinate for processing times. Finer hair is easily altered, requiring less time while hair that's thicker and coarse, require longer times to ensure the solutions were able to penetrate the hair shaft. Remember, when performing a perm the solution needs to get through the cuticle and enter into the cortex.

Lash lift

Solution #1: 
Fine Hair: 4-6 minutes
Medium to Normal Hair: 6 - 8 ½ minutes
Thick/Coarse Hair: 8 - 10 minutes 

Solution #2:
5-8 minutes

*schedule touch up appointments at least 8 weeks after the first session

LESSON 5 RECAP

Let's go over everything we have learned in this lesson. It's valuable to review the highlights of recently absorbed information to help new knowledge stick. We hope you're enjoying the course so far and we'll see you in the next lesson.


How do lash lifts work?
The Lash Lift's purpose is to curl the lashes up to create fuller, longer eyelash look. When lash lifting, applying dye, or lightening them you’re working with the cortex part of the brow hair. When performing these procedures they all use hydroxide oxidant, but it’s not the same one used in tint. 

How do the three solutions work to perm and lift the hairs?

o First Solution: The first lamination solution breaks through the outer cortex layer to allow your lamination to enter inside. In order to break through the cortex the active ingredient is thioglycolic acid. 
o Second Solution: The second solution is a neutralizer. It neutralizes the hairs to bring back the cortex’s disulfide bond.
o Third Solution: The third and final solution seals in the results and serves to retain moisture.
