How Often Can I Have a Lash Lift? The Do's and Don'ts for Healthy, Beautiful Lashes

At The London Brow Company, we know how much you love the look of beautifully lifted lashes. However, it's important to understand how often you can safely have a lash lift and what you should and shouldn't do to maintain healthy lashes. Let's explore the ideal frequency for lash lifts, the essential do's and don'ts, and why it's crucial not to rush into your next treatment too soon.

How Often Can I Have a Lash Lift?

A lash lift typically lasts between 6 to 8 weeks, depending on your natural lash growth cycle and aftercare routine. We recommend waiting at least 8 weeks before getting another lash lift. This waiting period allows your natural lashes to complete their growth cycle and ensures that your lashes remain healthy and strong.

The Do's and Don'ts of Lash Lift Aftercare

To keep your lashes looking their best and to prolong the effects of your lash lift, follow these essential do's and don'ts:


  1. Be Gentle: Handle your lashes with care. Avoid rubbing your eyes or pulling on your lashes.
  2. Avoid Excessive Water and Makeup for 24 Hours: Give the lifting solution time to set by keeping your lashes dry and makeup-free for the first 24 hours after the treatment.
  3. Use a Lash Conditioner: Just like your hair, your lashes benefit from conditioning. Use a lightweight nourishing lash serum or conditioner to keep them healthy such as Set and Go Serum or Keratin Boost Serum.
  4. Sleep on Your Back: Try to sleep on your back to avoid crushing your lashes and maintaining their lifted shape.


  1. Don't Get Another Lash Lift Too Soon: Wait at least 8 weeks before your next lash lift to prevent damage to your natural lashes.
  2. Avoid Heavy Oil-Based Products: Oil-based makeup removers and skincare products can weaken the lift and cause the curl to drop prematurely.  Heavy oils can do the same such as Castor Oils.
  3. Don't Use Waterproof Mascara: Waterproof mascara can be difficult to remove and may lead to lash breakage. Stick to regular mascara if you must use it or use a Lash Lift Mascara that has aftercare in it so you do two jobs in one! 
  4. Avoid Excessive Heat: Prolonged exposure to steam, saunas, or hot showers can weaken the lift and cause your lashes to lose their curl.

Why Having a Lash Lift Too Soon Can Damage Your Lashes

Your natural lashes need time to recover and grow between treatments. Getting a lash lift too soon can lead to several issues:

  • Weakening of Lashes: Frequent chemical treatments can weaken the hair structure, making your lashes more prone to breakage and damage.
  • Over-Processed Lashes: Just like over-bleaching hair, over-processing your lashes can make them brittle and unhealthy.
  • Poor Lift Results: When lashes are already weakened from a previous lift, they may not hold the new lift as effectively, resulting in subpar results.

By waiting the recommended 8 weeks between treatments, you allow your lashes to regenerate and maintain their strength, ensuring that each lash lift gives you the beautiful, long-lasting results you desire.

A lash lift is a fantastic way to achieve stunning, low-maintenance lashes, but it's essential to follow the proper aftercare and timing guidelines. At The London Brow Company, we're dedicated to helping you achieve and maintain the best results with our vegan and cruelty-free products. Remember to wait at least 8 weeks between lash lifts, follow the do's and don'ts, and prioritize the health of your natural lashes.
