Eyelashes turning, curling the wrong way?

Started 1310739037.027 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1310945736.557 by TooManyCats

I have never seen this topic discussed. Does anyone have a rememdy for eyelashes that don't stand up like the rest. I have some in the exact middle of my eye that start out straight, and then the tip curls one way or the other. Or, they actually grow sideways. I have outside end ones that grow toward the inside. No problem with my bottom lashes, only the top ones. I use Mally mascara and love it. Suggestions, anyone?

Curl them before applying mascara?

Namaste

With? Is there a really great tool for that? I have had friends that use drugstore eyelash curlers with disastrous results, i.e. losing clumps of lashes.

I had this same problem! I always curl my lashes and that does not help them. Oddly enough, I started using Rapidlash to help my short, light lashes grow longer and as a side effect, it seems to have helped those random, crazy lashes straighten out and now they are normal!

I did not expect this as a result of the Rapidlash and thought I'd have to live with those crazy lashes forever but so far so good! Prior to using RL, I spent a long time with my eyelash comb trying to get those random eyelashes to lay a way that didn't look too crazy. Ugh.

DUH....WENing! :)

I have honestly never heard of that.

Whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

I purposely didn't mention that I am using Latisse, because I didn't want a bunch of people telling me that it was the cause. I had this same problem before I used Latisse and now after it, hoping that straightening them out would be a side effect. Alas, it isn't. Dang it...was really counting on you gals to help me!! {#emotions_dlg.confused1}

Oh that is interesting that it didn't help. Wish it did because I know how frustrating it is. How are your other lashes doing with Latisse? And are the funky lashes growing longer but still turning and growing sideways? It may just be something you have to live, unfortunately. :(

DUH....WENing! :)

I have the same problem! Especially on my right side. Some are growing curly like normal, some straight out, some flat, some out to the outer corner. It makes me look a little crazy haha

I think some of it may be my hormones(thyroid) and some of it could be the way I sleep. I've tried a heated curler, which you comb through, and that helps temporarily. I know they have half/corner lash curlers too which could help to curl specific sections of your lashes.

Just go ahead and use an eyelash curler! I've NEVER heard of any "disastrous" results. Its cheap and will do the trick. BTW Just about every woman uses an eyelash curler with great results.

Thanks girls! In answer to the Latisse question, I love, love, love it. Worth every penny to me. My eyelashes are long and very thick and very noticeable. I think sleep position is one of the problems also. I end up pulling the ones that I just can't get to behave and fortuneately, with Latisse, they grow back pretty quickly.

FYI...pssssttt....you can get Latisse very inexpensively in Belize at the street pharmacies. I wish I had bought more when I was there. It just doesn't come with the brushes, but so many come with the perscription, it isn't a problem.

Oh, and on the disastrous results with the curler, I saw it with my own eyes. It wasn't just that someone said it, I saw the missing clump of lashes. {#emotions_dlg.w00t}

Drugstore eyelash curlers could be the problem with the "disastrous results". I highly recommend Shiseido's eyelash curler. It is the best IMO. It costs a little more, but not only does it do the job in a gentle and safe way, it lasted me years. They sell it with a replacement rubber strip.

Any residue that built up on it, I would clean with a cotton ball and eyemake remover.

Now that I'm using Careprost, I don't have to use an eyelash curler, Oh Happy Day!

Namaste

I curl my lashes every day and curling does not help those twisting, sideways, odd lashes that have a mind of their own. I even own a section curler to use specifically on those odd lashes and it does not help. I wish it were that easy! {#emotions_dlg.sad}

DUH....WENing! :)

I haVe the EXACT same problem SiousCitySue.....but only on my left eye. {#emotions_dlg.confused1} And I also use CareProst (which is the generic of Latisse) and had the problem way before I started using it......so I know that didn't cause the problem! {#emotions_dlg.laugh} Now I just have longer eyelashes going in different directions. Nothing I have tried has ever helped.....including curling them. So I figure I'll just have to live with the problem. {#emotions_dlg.unsure}

LOL at NiteStar - "Now I just have longer eyelashes going in different directions". You made me laugh out loud. That is exactly what I have...

Never heard of CareProst. Is it still by perscription only? How is there a generic of Latisse out so fast? Can I ask how much you pay for it?

Careprost is available from All Day Chemist in India, and other online pharmacies. It's $11 from ADC but the shipping cost is $25, so most people who order from them do so in larger quantities to make up for the high shipping.

I have this same problem on my right eye and it's getting worse now that I've been using RapidLash for a few months. Curling them doesn't help at all - if anything, it makes it more obvious.

The eyelashes on my right eye grow toward each other in some spots, and on the outer corner they grow inward. I do tend to sleep on that side of my face so that probably has something to do with the outer corner thing.

I'm thinking of trying a lash primer or clear mascara to see if that helps. It's aggravating because my lashes are looking great otherwise. At least I have a good left eye! LOL

PS: It looks like inhousepharmacy.biz has Careprost for $28 per bottle, including shipping.

It's called Lumigan there - is it the same as Careprost which is the same as Latisse? I can't seem to find Careprost there even though the Lumigan page says the site has it.

I experience the same issues with eyelashes. I also use Latisse. Usually it just goes away. I never had this experience before. So I attribute it to Latisse. Latisse is worth every penny.

I haven't personally used any of them, but it's my understanding that Latisse, Lumigan and Careprost are all versions of the same drug.
