Will your natural lashes get harmed or damaged?
The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. They do not. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes. If lashes are applied properly and to each individual lash, they won’t ruin your lashes
What happens if glue gets in your eyes?
Since your eyes are shut the whole time lash extensions are being applied, no glue will ever get into your eye.Additionally, it’s important to understand the difference between an allergic reaction and an infection. A licensed and experienced lash technician will not let an infection occur, but if you’re allergic to the glue, you’re still going to be allergic — this doesn’t mean the glue is inherently harmful.
Does it hurt to have done?
It is generally not a painful procedure, but some people have negative reactions to materials involved. If you experience any burning, pain or discomfort, let the professional know immediately. Your technician should be trained in dealing with this potential issue.
Do they last forever?
No. Your natural lashes fall out after 60-90 days, but we do not notice when they fall out quite as much because there’s already a new lash growing behind it. False lashes are often thicker and longer than your natural lashes, so when they fall out, you may wind up noticing it more. With lash extensions that are adhered to your natural lashes, they can fall out anywhere from a week to a couple weeks down the road. Basically, you will need to get them replaced every two to four weeks.
What are lash extensions made of?
Lash extensions come in a variety of materials. The most common are made out of synthetic polyester, silk and mink, and can range in length from short to very long.
How can I make them last longer?
Try to sleep on your back! I know this is difficult for those who are accustomed to being side (or even face) sleepers but it can help your lashes avoid getting pulled or prodded. Also, even if you really love feeling that lengthy, lovely, lush set of new lashes all up on your fingertips, resist the urge to touch them anyway. You should be careful whilst washing your face to avoid tugging or pushing on them, as well.
