I am so lazy when it comes to getting ready in the morning. If I could sleep in my makeup and wake up with a full beat every day, I would. some of you might think this way once in a while. Well, eyelash extensions is the answer to all your prayers. Full, long, dark lashes every single day, without needing coats of mascara? Um, yes, please.
What are lash extension?
Lash extensions are semi-permanent, synthetic, faux mink or silk fibers that are applied strand by strand with specially formulated non-irritating glue to your own lashes to enhance your eye shape.
Will my natural lashes be damaged?
If you see a licensed and certified professional your natural lashes should not be harmed. Lash extensions alone will not ruin your lashes. Damage to the natural lashes is the result of improper application, or the stylist not selecting the correct type of lash for an existing natural lash. There are a few factors that contribute to this problem: Applying extensions that are too heavy for the natural lash will result in premature shedding, and rubbing your eyes will also result in immediate breakage. This is actually the worst thing you can do, so it’s important to try to be as gentle as you can with your eyes.
How Long Can You Keep Extensions On For ?
With proper care extensions can last up to 6 weeks before they shed. The shedding cycle will happen in tandem with your natural hair-growth cycle, which generally turns over around every 6 to 8 weeks. To maintain the full-lashed effect in the long term, refills are a great way to extend the life of your lashes and are recommended every 2 to 3 weeks.
Get your lash extensions from a reputable place
When it comes to extensions, you get what you pay for. Cheaping out can result in either poorly applied and not-so-cute lashes or scarier, infected lashes. So please, only go to reputable, well-reviewed salons, and make sure your technician sanitize their hands between clients, wears a mask, uses sanitary pillow covers, sterilizes their tweezers, and uses disposable eyelash brushes. Yes, you are allowed to ask your technician to confirm all these things.
If you’re a first time wearer, these may seem a little overwhelming on day one, but you will get used to it after one week and be batting those full lashes in no time.
