WHAT ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Eyelash extensions are a beauty treatment that involves applying synthetic lashes to your natural lashes. The extensions can be made from a variety of materials, including mink, silk, and synthetic fibers. They are usually applied with a type of adhesive that is safe for use on the eyes. Eyelash extensions are available in a variety of lengths, colors, and thicknesses, so you can create the look you want. The process typically takes about a few hours but can vary on multiple factors. Lash extensions are a great way to achieve long, full lashes without the need for daily mascara application.
HOW LONG DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?
Lash extensions are not permanent, but with proper care, they can last for several weeks. The extensions are attached to your natural lashes, and as new lashes grow in and old ones fall out, the extensions will gradually come off. The natural lash cycle is 60-90 days, so most people need to come in for maintenance fills every 2-3 weeks depending on retention. Lash extensions can be a great way to enhance your appearance, but it’s important to be aware of the commitment involved. With proper care and regular maintenance, you can enjoy beautiful, long lashes for weeks at a time.
HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
There are a few things you need to do to take care of your lash extensions and keep them looking their best. This includes:
- Avoid getting your eyelash extensions wet for the first 6 hours after application. This gives the glue time to set.
- Be gentle when brushing them. Use a soft, clean mascara brush or your fingertips to lightly brush through your lashes, being careful not to pull or tug.
- Avoid using oil-based products around your eyes. This includes makeup removers, creams, and serums. Oil will break down the glue and cause your lash extensions to fall out prematurely.
- Wash your eyelash extensions and lash line daily by using a soft fluffy brush and a lash bath cleanser.
- Schedule regular appointments for touch-ups. Every 2-3 weeks, you’ll need to get your lash extensions filled in as they naturally shed with your own lashes.
With proper care, you can enjoy beautiful lash extensions for weeks at a time!
DO LASH EXTENSIONS DAMAGE YOUR NATURAL EYELASHES?
There are a lot of myths out there about eyelash extensions, and one of the most persistent is that they will damage your natural lashes. However, this is simply not true. When applied correctly by a professional, with perfect isolation and the right weight, eyelash extensions will not cause any harm to your natural lashes. A qualified lash technician will take the time to consult with you to determine the best style and length of lash for your individual lashline. They will also create a custom design to complement the shape of your eye. As long as you choose a professional technician and properly take care of your eyelash extensions, your natural lashes should not be damaged by the extensions. If you have further questions or concerns, reach out to a local eyelash extension technician in your area.
