Laminated Brows Care: The Eyebrow Aftercare Guide


Just got your dream brows with a brow lamination treatment? We know you're obsessed – those perfectly shaped, defined arches are amazing! But to keep them looking flawless for weeks, aftercare is crucial.

This guide will walk you through the essential steps to maintain your beautiful laminated brows.

The First 48 Hours: Keeping It Dry is Key

The initial 48 hours are critical for the lamination solution to set properly. During this time, avoid getting your brows wet:

  • Skip the shower steam: Hold off on hot showers or baths with steamy environments.

  • No swimming or saunas: These activities expose your brows to excess moisture.

  • Be mindful when washing your face: Use a washcloth to gently cleanse around your brows, avoiding direct contact with water.

Minimize Heat Exposure for Lasting Definition

Heat can disrupt the chemical bonds formed during the lamination process, potentially weakening the hold on your brow hairs. To ensure your brows stay perfectly shaped, avoid heat around the brows for the first 48 hours. This means:

  • Skip the hot tools: Give your blow dryer, straightener, and curler a break near your forehead.

  • Avoid direct sunlight: Excessive sun exposure can have a drying effect, potentially impacting the lamination.

Be Gentle with Products: Give Your Brows a Break

After your treatment, take a break from harsh skincare and makeup products around your brows. Here's why:

  • Avoid harsh chemicals: Strong exfoliants or cleansers can disrupt the lamination.

  • Skip the heavy makeup: Oil-based makeup can interfere with the setting process. Opt for minimal makeup around the brows during the first 48 hours.

  • Brow product switch-up: Some brow products might contain ingredients that affect lamination. If you usually use brow pencils or gels, ask your technician for recommendations on safe alternatives.

Resist the Urge to Touch!

Itching or wanting to adjust your brows? We get it! But for the first 24 hours, avoid excessive touching, rubbing, or scratching. This can disrupt the hair positioning and compromise the desired shape.

Brow Maintenance for Long-Lasting Beauty

Now that you know what to avoid, here's how to maintain your laminated brows:

  • Cleanse Gently: After 48 hours, use a gentle, oil-free cleanser to cleanse your brows and face. Be gentle and pat them dry with a soft towel.

  • Brush and Nourish: Daily brushing with a spoolie brush helps maintain shape and keeps them groomed. After 48 hours, consider applying a brow serum or oil twice a day to keep the hairs hydrated.

  • Schedule Touch-Ups:  Depending on your hair growth cycle, schedule touch-up appointments every 6-8 weeks to maintain the look.


By following these simple aftercare tips, you can ensure your laminated brows stay beautiful and defined for weeks to come. Embrace the confidence that comes with perfectly groomed brows, and enjoy the minimal daily maintenance routine!

Before and After Brow Lamination
Before and After Brow Lamination


Before undergoing a brow lamination treatment, your eyebrows may lack definition and appear unruly, making it challenging to achieve the desired shape and style. At Lavoom Salon, we offer Brow Lamination, a service meticulously designed to transform your brows into sleek, well-defined arches that frame your face beautifully.

Prior to brow lamination, your brows may lack uniformity and fullness, leaving them looking sparse and unkempt. To combat this, many individuals resort to time-consuming grooming routines or excessive use of brow products. In response to this common dilemma, we offer eyebrow tinting as an effective solution. Eyebrow tinting serves as a natural-looking enhancement for your brows, providing depth and definition without the need for daily makeup application. Unlike eyebrow pencils or powders, which may smudge or fade throughout the day, eyebrow tinting offers long-lasting results that require minimal upkeep.


While brow lamination is generally a safe and effective treatment, there are a few minor issues that might arise during the aftercare period. Here's what to watch out for and how to address them:

  • Dryness or Flaking:  Sometimes, dryness or slight flaking can occur around the brow area after the treatment, especially if your skin tends to be dry. This is usually temporary and can be easily soothed by applying a gentle moisturizer around the brows (avoiding direct contact with the brows themselves). Look for fragrance-free and oil-free moisturizers suitable for sensitive skin.

  • Uneven Brows:  If you notice any unevenness in your brows after the initial healing period (around 48 hours), don't panic! This can sometimes happen due to slight variations in how the hairs respond to the lamination solution. The good news is that a minor touch-up by your brow technician can easily rectify this.

  • Itching:  It's normal to experience some mild itching after the treatment, especially during the first 24 hours. Resist the urge to rub or scratch your brows, as this can irritate the area and disrupt the hair positioning.  If the itching persists or becomes severe, consult your brow technician or a dermatologist.

  • Redness or Irritation: Slight redness or irritation around the brows can occur, particularly if you have sensitive skin. If the redness persists or worsens, consult your technician or a dermatologist.

Important Note: If you experience any severe discomfort, excessive redness, or swelling after your brow lamination treatment, contact your technician or a healthcare professional immediately.

By being aware of these potential aftercare concerns and knowing how to address them, you can ensure a smooth healing process and enjoy beautiful, long-lasting laminated brows.
