Assalamualikum wa rahmatullah I had a question asked regarding lash lifts…
“Essentially your perming the natural lashes so that they are curled and “opens the eyes”. No extra hair is added they last for a few months and gradually will return to their normal state”
Seeing as they’re the natural eyelashes and I believe wudu friendly would this be permissible?
There are two points to take into consideration with lash lifts:
The first is regarding the process itself. We have made some enquiries regarding the process and based on the information provided to us the process itself does not violate any rules of shari’ah and would therefore be permissible. Also, the companies we contacted, informed us that no product remains on the lash after the treatment, hence that would mean that there would be no barrier for the validity of wudu or ghusl. However, one must ensure that this is also the case where they are having treatment carried out as procedures may vary from place to place.
The second issue is regarding beautification. It is not permissible for a woman to beautify herself then be present in front of non-mahram (unmarriageable kin) men. If the lash lift is done in a manner which is excessive and entices or draws the attention of men then this will be disliked.
One must exercise caution when using contemporary forms of beautification and cosmetic enhancements as there primary purpose is to create an attractive look.
