Q. Should I do a patch test prior to application?
A. Yes, we recommend performing a patch test 24 hours prior to application for all clients to ensure no reactions occur. For persons who have previously experienced sensitivity, we advise carrying out a preliminary patch test 48 hours beforehand. As there are lots of factors that can affect dye sensitivity (such as changes in medication, pregnancy or illness) patch testing should be carried out prior to each application.

A. Yes! Permalash is a perfect way to enhance your brow shape by providing a wash of colour and creating a volumized appearance.
Q. My client’s eyebrows are overplucked and sparse, can I use Permalash to thicken and colour my brows?
A. Definitely! Permalash is designed to give brows colour as well as making each individual hair appear thicker and longer, which helps to create a bolder and more impactful look. Permalash will tint every little hair – even the ones you didn’t know were there! – to boost brows, create an improved shape and thicken their overall appearance. Please note, Permalash is not a brow thickening or growth treatment.
Q. My client has very fair eyebrows and eyelashes, is there a shade of Permalash to suit them?
A. Yes, we offer 5 different shades of Permalash:
- Light Brown
When used straight from the tube, these shades are suitable for the majority of people, though you can custom blend them to create the perfect tone
Q. Can Permalash be used on laminated brows?
A. Permalash can be used during the eyebrow lamination process to provide a tint of colour and enhance fullness. As brow lamination typically lasts around 6 weeks, tinting the brow in between treatments shouldn’t be necessary.

A. Yes, Permalash can be applied following a lash lift to add additional depth and darken the lashes.
Q. Can Permalash be used in conjunction with lash extensions or false eyelashes?
A. Permalash can be used before lash extensions are applied, but wouldn’t need to be used following application, as lash extensions provide a very full and lengthened look, typically lasting for 4-5 weeks on average. False eyelashes can be worn whilst your lashes are tinted with Permalash.
Q. Can Permalash be used during pregnancy?
A. We do not advise using Permalash during pregnancy, in line with recent changes to EU legislation. Please note that as we are a manufacturing company, we cannot make recommendations of a medical nature and therefore cannot provide definitive advice on this matter. We advise clients check with their GP before using Permalash.
Q. Is Permalash suitable for clients undergoing chemotherapy or with conditions such as alopecia, where little brow hair and few lashes remain?
A. Permalash is suitable for use by those with alopecia or chemotherapy related hair loss, as its hypoallergenic formula is gentle on the skin and hair and can be easily used in conjunction with other beauty treatments and products such as magnetic lashes, lash extensions and individual false lashes. When applied to the brow area, Permalash can tint the fine vellus hair to help create the desired shape and provides a short-term alternative to microblading and brow tattooing.
