Do eyelash curlers destroy your eyelashes?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
I keep on wondering if curling your lashes daily does more harm than help to it. Since I'm asian, I HAVE to curl my lashes before going out, even if I decide not to wear mascara, just because my eyelashes are pretty long, but verrrry straight.

Do eyelash curlers kill your lashes and make them weaker though? Because my family says I'm very lucky to have longer eyelashes and there is NO way in hell i want to lose them! :/

Re: Do eyelash curlers destroy your eyelashes?

I know when you curl them AFTER mascara is bad because of pulling. But the actual curling, I wouldn't think so unless you tug or you notice lashes coming off after every usage. As for breakage or ruining the hair itself - no clue. I can imagine heating your curler might create some hair damage but dunno.

I think as long as you are careful and gentle, you'll be fine.

yes heating the curler is not good for the lashes, it can make them fall

Re: Do eyelash curlers destroy your eyelashes?

I use a lash curler every day, and have been doing so for quite awhile and I haven't noticed any difference to my lashes now to before when I didn't use one. I use a standard lash curler, I do know that heated lash curlers can cause damage after awhile, so if you are worried about damage, I would suggest sticking to a conventional curler.

I agree with the ladies.
Perhaps you might want to use lash treatment before you curl your lashes, and use it every night before bed for the safe side.

Re: Do eyelash curlers destroy your eyelashes?

I agree with what everyone else has said. I use a eyelash curler everyday and my eyelashes haven't been damaged. As long as you don't tug on your lashes too hard they should be fine

Curling your lashes won't damage them but it is important to use a lash conditioner. It helps to hydrate and protect your lashes and it gives your mascara a little extra oomph as well. You wouldn't NOT condition your hair...same principle with the lashes.

Most lash primers are the same as lash conditioner.

Re: Do eyelash curlers destroy your eyelashes?

I used to use one by avon when i was younger but i got lazy. I remember my sister used to curl her lashes after she applied layers of mascara and one day she literally ripped half her lashes on one eye, I know its mean but it was funny as heck lol

Well I have my boo Clinique's Lash Primer! :P I knew it was better to put it on your eyelashes than mascara alone, but actually conditioning it? Pretty hot!

Re: Do eyelash curlers destroy your eyelashes?

Technically, heating your eyelashes isn't good for them but I don't see why a regular one would hurt. I personally don't use either because I think they're pointless. =)

Hello, eyelashes are like hair you need to look after them, my eyelashes have fallen out befor buy using the curlers however i never used to take off my makeup so that was the reson, make sure you take your makeup off every single night and rub, patroliom jelly on your lashes, my eyelashes ever since havent fell out but now i use a trick,

 

1. Put your mascara on and wait for it to dry

2. Curl your lashes untill happy with it, i curl mine about 3 times but pump the curler dont hold in place or it can cause your eyelashes to stick to the curler and falll out, allso curl them in the middle of your lashes not on the routs or this can cause breaking and can make the lashes fall out, this does work cause ive lost all mine befor cos of curling and now i havent lost a single one from this trick, i do this everyday.Hope this helps you + ive been doing this for 30 years.tongue.gif

Everyone has a different personal opinion, but the best solution is that dont use it too often because YES, IT DOES WEAKEN your eyelashes...this is cuz ur eyelashes grow straight (as u mentioned urs r very straight) ...and yes ur parents are right, its very difficult to get pretty lashes naturally. if u curl them, u basically turn their way of growing and so they become weak ... i can say this cuz even i hav long lashes... :) hope this helped! xoxo
oh and most important... never curl lashes after mascara :)
cuz ur lashes become lil hard, its easier for them to break ...

No, using a eyelash curler not destroy your lashes.

 

Your lashes like all your other body hair and is created from the inside of your body. If you lashes are weak or fragile it's most likely due to a HEALTH reason rather than from using a lash curler. Your lashes like the rest of your body hair may or may not have a curl depending on your genes.

 

You can curl your lashes after applying mascara because the mascara has not dried yet, this is why is you sneeze or blink you can smudge your mascara. Obviously don't curl your lashes after the mascara has dried. Best to use a heated eyelash curler if the mascara has dried because it'll warm it up enough to curl the lash.
