Everything You Need To Know About Lash Extensions

It is alright to admit if you are more than a little curious about lash extensions, especially now that this beauty trend has extended beyond your favorite celebrities to the moms at your kids’ soccer games.

Women love extensions because they can make lashes appear fuller and younger-looking while eliminating the need for mascara. But while the idea of a simplified makeup routine sounds great, there is still the question of whether extensions are healthy and safe or if they are worth the time and money.

This blog describes everything you need to know about lash extensions. So continue reading till the end.


Here is what you must know about lash extensions

What are the different types of eyelash extensions?


Extensions are available in a variety of materials and curls, including mink, sable, faux mink, silk, cashmere, and synthetic acrylic.

Because the curl on your lash extensions must match the curl on your natural lashes, experts consider the application process an art rather than a one-size-fits-all procedure. Furthermore, with so many different face shapes, your lash stylist must determine the best look for you and your lifestyle.


How Long Does It Take To Apply Eyelash Extensions?


The initial procedure takes about two hours, with touch-ups recommended every two to three weeks. A single lash extension, ranging in size from 6 to 18 millimeters, is painstakingly applied to the base of the natural eyelash one by one.


Are Lash Extensions Painful?


With tweezers so close to your eyes, you may feel anxious, but you should not be bothered. Because your eyes are closed throughout the process, it would not hurt you.


What Is The Lifespan Of Eyelash Extensions?


Unfortunately, you will lose the extension when you lose your natural lash, which happens every 6 to 8 weeks.


Are eyelash extensions safe?


Lash extensions are easier to get wrong than they are to get right. Inexperienced users may apply too much adhesive, resulting in clumped lashes, or they may glue a single lash extension to multiple natural lashes, resulting in even more clumping or even breakage.

Furthermore, lashes grow at different rates; gluing two together when only one is ready to shed can cause the other to fall out prematurely. That is why it is critical to research your technician. Determine how long he or she has been applying for extensions, read reviews and visit their Facebook and Instagram pages, examine before and after Instagram photos, and confirm that he or she is state licensed and working at a reputable establishment.

Furthermore, formaldehyde-containing extension adhesives can cause allergic reactions, so make sure your technician uses a medical-grade, formaldehyde-free, non-irritating glue. If you notice any burning or tearing during the application, notify your lash stylist right away. The gel patches used to keep your lower lashes in place, which may contain collagen, aloe, and hyaluronic acid can also irritate, especially if you have sensitive skin.


How To Take Care Of Lash Extensions?


If you notice your new lashes flaking off, something has likely disrupted the adhesive bond. Water can weaken the glue before it has a chance to set, so avoid getting your lashes wet for the first 24 - 48 hours. Never use a cotton pad or swab because they can snag the extension and pull it out.

If you sleep on your stomach or side, use a silk or satin pillowcase and apply a lash topcoat every night.
