How to Fix a Brow Lamination Gone Wrong?

Brow Lamination is one of the most popular brow treatments in the world right now. Everyone is talking about how necessary it is to maintain your brows properly, especially in the new age of social media. When you’re getting your brows laminated, many things can go wrong. 

You must be aware of how things may go wrong and try your best to avoid these mistakes. Brow lamination is a procedure that many people are using more often now. However, there are also ways that you can do it at home using a Brow lamination kit. 

In the article below, we’ll look into how your brow lamination job can go wrong and what you can do to fix it. 

How Can Brow Lamination Go Wrong?

The simplest way to understand that your brow lamination can go wrong is to notice it right after the brow lamination job. Sometimes the brow can turn curly and wavy in a way you don’t quite like. 

Another way your brow lamination can go wrong is that you might have an allergic reaction to the whole ordeal. You might break into redness and irritation. Thus, you must do a test on a patch of skin (mostly done on the skin at the back of your ear) before you get your brows laminated. 

If you’ve never had a brow treatment before, you need to be especially careful to check for allergens before opting for a brow lamination procedure. If you’re getting the brow lamination done by a Salon or a clinic, then they’re likely to do a patch test. However, if you’re using a DIY brow lamination and lash lift kit, you need to do this test on your own. 

There may be another issue when you’re trying to do the brow lamination on your own: pH. Even though Nicky Lashes’ brow lamination and lash lift kit tries its best to be safe for you, there is variation in the pH offered by Nicky lashes compared to other companies that you have to be aware of. The pH level determines how quickly you need to handle the brows after applying the solution. Specific chemical like Cysteine works more slowly than Thioglycolic acid, which is why if it’s your first time, you want to work with something like Cysteine.

Thioglycolic acid can lead to your brow perming and curling all on its own. It leads to you having fuzzy eyebrows that you didn’t sign up for. Perming and crinkly eyebrows are a nightmare because they will remain as they are for a while. 

How Can You Fix a Brow Lamination Gone Wrong?

Now that you know that there are many ways that your brow lamination job can go wrong, you should also know some ways to fix them. The simplest way would be to ensure that your brows go through an easy time is as follows:

Grow Them Out

When you feel like your brows are growing crinkly and curly, the best thing is to let them grow out. You don’t have to do anything to them; you must let them be. It may be difficult if looking good is part of your job, but if they don’t look bad, you can give them anywhere between 1 month and 3, so they can completely get rid of all the product on them. Also, don't forget to apply your favorite oil every day! 

Use a Perm Lotion

  1. Using a spoolie, apply perm solution to the brows that are too curly. Brush them to the side instead of up, add more perm solution as you go. Continue this step until the over permed brows begin to straighten out. It shouldn’t take more than 2 – 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the perm solution using a cotton pad to soak it off your eyebrows. Do not pull on your eyebrows while doing this. Pressing the cotton pad gently on top of your brows will usually do the trick.
  3. Using another spoolie, apply a nourishing oil to your brows. Brush gently from the roots down the ends. 
  4. If you’ve done everything correctly, you’ll notice that your eyebrows have relaxed a bit. You will still have curls in your brows.
  5. Use the spoolie to get your brows a final brush and place them the way you want.

Wash Off the Product

If you feel like your hair is curly in the wrong way, you can try to wash off the solution directly after finishing the process and apply the nourish oil or if you prefer any other oil. 

Brow Lamination After Care

Once you’ve gotten the procedure done, you have to be careful about how to take care of your brows. The ways to take care of your brows are as follows:

  • Avoid Getting Your Brows Wet

You must ensure that your brows don’t get any water on them for 24 to 48 hours after the procedure; this includes sweat. 

  • Protect Your Brows

Ensure that your brows are not in direct contact with sunlight, sweat, or any water source. Avoid saunas and steam rooms, too, or anything that will get you close to sweating in the first 24 hours. 

  • Keep Your Hands Off

Don’t touch your brows frequently after you’ve gotten the treatment done. Your hands might have oils that can break down the chemicals used to keep your brows straight. 

Final Thoughts 

If you’re trying to fix your ruined brow lamination job at home, you must use the Nicky Lashes brow lamination and lash lift kit. You can use the solutions for a minimum of 3 minutes and sweep the brows sideways so they can return to how they were. You can then add a bit of keratin treatment on the root so that your hair is more robust than before.
