OKO laminating composition overview

Composition No. 1 OKO LIFT has an alkaline environment and is responsible for the destruction of disulfide bonds. The product loosens the hair structure so that the active components of the product easily penetrate inside. The composition can be used with or without film. Under the film, the reaction is faster, it helps to cope with curly hairs, and lay them in the right direction.
If you are using a permanent brow product, it will come into contact with the skin. In this case, after the application of 1 composition, slight redness may appear due to the effect of alkali on the pH of the skin. This is not to be feared. It is important not to overexpose the composition and take care of the skin, taking into account all contraindications.
One sachet of composition No. 1 is enough for 4-5 eyelash lamination procedures or 3-4 procedures for long-term eyebrow styling. Due to its dense consistency, the product is very economical.

Composition #2 OKO FIX & VOLUME – acid. Composition No. 2 neutralizes the action of the first composition, restores disulfide bonds, and the hair on the eyes becomes stronger and more elastic, fixing the desired shape. The product has a texture that is easy to work with, allowing you to lay out both lying and sitting.
After applying the 2nd composition to the eyebrows, the skin in the application area becomes whitish, even slightly discolored. this is due to the destruction of the pigment dye – melanin. Melanin is destroyed as a result of the oxidation of skin proteins.
One sachet of composition No. 2 is enough for 5-6 lamination procedures and 4-5 procedures for long-term eyebrow styling.

Composition #3 OKO RECOVERY&CARE – the final stage of an eyelash or eyebrow lamination, its task is to smooth the cuticular layer and give a healthy shine to the hairs. This is an important stage in the restoration of eyelashes and eyebrows.
OKO recovery & care is presented in the form of the so-called BOTOX, this is the most enhanced and innovative care formula that maximally nourishes eyelashes, cares for hair and skin, smoothes hairs, gives natural shine, has a small molecular weight, which allows it to penetrate into the structure to improve hair quality, but at the same time does not burden it, normalizes pH. Contains vitamin B5.

Home care for eyelashes and eyebrows after lamination

Post care after lamination of eyelashes and long-term styling of eyebrows – An important step that is often overlooked. Composition No. 3 OKO CARE creates a protective film on the eyelashes, but it is destroyed by your client's usual home remedies.
