Are Heated Eyelash Curlers Bad for Your Lashes?


Heated lash curlers have become increasingly popular recently as the design has improved to make them easy to handle and will now fit seamlessly into your makeup bag. They offer a way to curl your lashes quickly and easily and are brilliant to use with false lashes. How many of us have struggled with those clunky metal ones wishing there was a sleeker alternative?  Some women are concerned that heated lash curlers may damage their lashes so in this blog, I’ll explore the safety of heated lash curlers, provide tips for using them safely, and offer advice for maintaining healthy lashes.

What are Heated Eyelash Curlers?

Heated lash curlers are similar to traditional curlers but use very gentle heat to curl your lashes. They are also fantastic for false lashes as the heat binds the false lash to your natural lash for a secure 24hr hold.  They come in different shapes and sizes, but most have a battery-powered heating element that warms up a pad or clamp. The heat softens the lashes, making them more malleable so that they can be curled easily.  The heat also warms the SuperBond and makes it bind to your natural lashes for a seamless lash look.
