Why Don't My Lashes Curl? Exploring Factors Behind Straight Eyelashes 

By Amaya Determann and Alexis Scarlett

Are you exhausted from the relentless battle with your eyelash curler? Every time you try, you end up with stubborn lashes that seem to defy every attempt of curling! If this scenario sounds all too familiar, rest assured, you're in good hands. Many individuals face this struggle, tirelessly seeking that perfect lift for their lashes but often fall short. We're diving deep into the issue, uncovering the reasons behind why your lashes won't curl. More importantly, we're here to bring you innovative solutions, guiding you toward achieving those dreamy, uplifted lashes that you deserve :)

1. Lash Length and Thickness

One of the reasons your lashes might not curl is the very nature of your lashes themselves—too short, too thin, or perhaps a bit of both. When your lashes are sparse, they lack the volume required to maintain a curve, leaving you longing for more. Furthermore, if you have delicate, thin lashes, you're faced with a different problem. Their shape doesn't give your eyelash curler or mascara much to work with, making it hard to achieve that perfect curl. The balance of how your lashes are shaped and how you curl them is extremely important, but it's something that doesn't always get enough attention when we're trying to get those well-curled lashes. There are natural ways toenhance the length and thickness of your lashes, providing a better foundation for curling and mascara application.

2. Using The Wrong Lash Curler:

Did you know that depending on your eye shape, you could accidently be using the wrong curler? Using the wrong type of eyelash curler can contribute to lackluster results. Curlers come in various shapes and sizes, and what works for one person's eye shape may not work for another. An improper curler can create eyelash damage from uneven applied pressure. The wrong curler can also lead to eyelash loss, which might take weeks to grow back. If your curler doesn't fit the shape of your eye properly, it won't be able to effectively curl your lashes, and you won't get the results you want.


Invest in a high-quality eyelash curler that's suited to your eye shape and lash length. Our PermaCurl Pro Heated Eyelash Curler is designed to gently curl lashes without pinching or pulling, giving you long-lasting results.
