Women Relaxing Their Eyelashes to Lengthen and Straighten Them?


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.

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!


They can have it, ain't no way I'm risking my vision for some foolishness like that. That's what falsies are for.

I guess some are fixated on having everything long and straight. I think it's silly.

Um... No, it's not that serious. That's a bit extreme, to me.

I don't think I'd do anything near my eyes :/ I barely ever use eye makeup lol. I would be absolutely, completely depressed if I lost my eyesight.
