Women Relaxing Their Eyelashes to Lengthen and Straighten Them?

Avatar • Aug 13, 2013

Talk about an unconventional beauty secret!

Some women are relaxing their eyelashes to straighten and lengthen them! The practice is very popular in Japan, and seems to be making an impression here in the United States.

japanese

Below is a video of the procedure done by African American vlogger Lily Seymour. In an accompanying blog post she explains:

I have really curly eyelashes and it’s no secret that curls and coils are part of my heritage and its something i’m really proud of. But my curly eyelashes really bother me sometimes so straightening them has become a permanent part of my beauty routine. I have been straightening my eyelashes for almost 20yrs now off and on and it makes me very happy! 

Wow! Ladies what are your thoughts?

No thanks I like being able to see…Ill stick to curling them chemical free. Their eyelashes were hardly straight and they could get the same effect by warming an eyelash curler and then applying mascara and they stay curled until u wash it off. Perming them is seriously just overkill and unwise. I no longer want relaxer in my scalp, I can’t imagine your eye is any better

Wow. Ummm…so many words escape me. I can see how that’s an appealing process, methinks. But personally, I don’t think I’d do it. I can’t imagine having a relaxer that close to my eyes! It seems a little too risky. But hey, whatever floats your boat…

The disclaimer at the beginning of the video says the lye is unsafe to use on your face and can cause blindness and it is not recommended and then she proceeds to relax her curly eyelashes. So risk blindness for some straight lashes.…She says she has her contacts in so her eyeball is protected lol. But I saw no difference in her eyelashes which she will then apply false eyelashes to. She says relaxing her eyelashes makes it easier to apply the false ones.

I agree! Plus, having contacts is in no way some sort of protection! With/Without contacts in if I get even just a regular eyelash in them, I’m blinded and my contacts roll off into my eye! Lol dramatic, but I mean you get the point…contacts aren’t goggles..if anything I feel it would react with the chemicals and burn onto your eye but, I’m not a scientist and reserve the right to be wrong! Lol

Even being a woman, I’m still amazed (though not shocked) at the lengths we go to — for “length”, mixed with the extremes we go to… for “extreme length!” LOL! It’s ironically funny and sad at the same time.

Okay so I don’t usually post comments. However this one is something that I had to say something about. It’s a miracle these women even still has eyelashes! If we know what lye does to our scalp and how it can damage our scalp follicles and the hair will never grow back from a damage scalp follicle, it makes me wonder why are they not afraid that the hair of their eyelashes won’t go back because of the damage to the follicle with this chemical! Lol! Well to each their own, and if it makes them happy I’m happy for… Read more »

I have “curly” eyelashes too so they don’t always fan out straight but I’d like to not burn my eyeballs out of my head!! Serious chemicals near your EYE. No. And no, contacts will not be enough to protect your eye if this falls in. This might take the cake for craziness people commit for “beauty” #givemestrength

I just about fell out laughing when I saw that video. Most women attempt to curl their lashes not straighten them.

I left the cosmetology industry because of chemical exposure which included relaxers, those chemicals are dangerous enough on hair and anything else they touch without putting it near an eye.

I agree this is extremely dangerous, but there is no difference between what she’s doing and eyelash perming (chemical process to curl eyelashes). I personally do not think she’s any less vain than other women who use latisse, eyelash perming or professional individual eyelash extensions because they all have the same risks. Using any chemical or glue is risky because the eye area is just sensitive overall. As long as she’s super cautious and is content with HER eyelashes, who’s to put her down? We all have vain characteristics so let’s not point our fingers.

I hate when people go on like that. Just because people are warning her it’s dangerous doesn’t mean we’re putting her down. Yes, it is crazy. Why? Because the dangers and risk exceed the benefits.

We’re not calling her any more vain than even those who use mascara. But her vanity has taken over her priorities. The chance of beauty over the risk of sight. Not saying she’s more vain but that is really crazy. And sad.

This is a joke y’all… truly a joke. Because we know no one would put a product containing lye on their eyelash. She just wanted to be the recipient of the most comments for the week/month/year??? Perhaps she just wanted attention — like some of the stars who have their dresses fall down while they are singing on stage so onlookers can think they are naked because they wore nude colored under garments. Besides, if she had really been applying lye for 20 years, she certainly would have been blind, probably dead or out of her mind, by now.

@ miles of lashes.…a person could use castor oil to grow their own lashes vice applying creamy crack to eyelashes.…you have to keep applying it to get the same results. This price for longer lashes and beauty is too high of a risk to pay…a better fix is grow your own lashes long not a temporary fix.

LADIES. CAN WE JUST BE HAPPY WITH WHAT WE HAVE?!! Other women would MASSACRE an ENTIRE VILLAGE to have curly lashes. Have you ever heard of EYELASH CURLERS!? This is just downright disgusting. The same relaxers that burn the very skin off of your scalp if left on too long, the same relaxers that can melt through METAL. The same relaxers that you cant give to little kids at a certain age you are putting on your EYES?! This is just plain ridiculous.

My goodness. All of the emotions are intense. Can we stop using terms like “crazy” and “out of her mind” as an insult? It’s really ableist, and I don’t think it helps anyone’s argument. I encourage those of you using the phase to research it.

They do the opposite in japan. They perm their eyelashes because usually they are straight. What everyone with straight eyelashes wants is curled eyelashes like we naturally have
