Eyelash extensions: what are they?

Lash extensions are microscopic, black fibers that are adhered to the roots of the natural lashes using adhesive. Either the fibers are packaged in separate pieces or a strip with them is included. Anybody can apply strip lashes. Individual lashes are normally applied by professionals. Due to their complexity and high cost, our tutorial concentrates on the latter.

How do artificial eyelashes function?
To achieve a dramatic yet natural-looking effect, certified professionals painstakingly install false eyelashes by connecting the minute extensions one at a time. After the procedure, your natural eyelashes' whole development cycle will be covered by the lash extensions. Although the rate of lash growth varies from person to person, it usually takes six to eight weeks. However, the majority of technicians advise touch-ups every three to four weeks.

What materials do they contain?

Mink, synthetic hair, and synthetic silk are the most popular materials used in extension work. Some individuals think mink extensions are the greatest false eyelashes since they are typically the lightest and softest. They are also the priciest for this reason. Synthetic lashes are frequently the heaviest and thickest of the lot, giving them a very dramatic appearance. The most popular form of extensions used today are synthetic silk extensions since they are typically pretty light, extremely dark, and capable of holding a curl.

How much time does the application procedure require?

Getting a full set can take 2.5–3 hours because the application process is so careful. Most clients snooze during this time.  Half sets and touch ups take considerably less time.

What is the lifespan of eyelash extensions?

6- to 8 weeks. The average lifespan of lash extensions is six to eight weeks, or the length of a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes. That so, to keep a full appearance, I advise minimal lash care every three to four weeks because each person's lash growth is slightly different (much like hair growth).

Do artificial eyelashes damage your natural lashes?

That lash extensions damage your natural lashes is the largest urban legend. No, they don't. They are secure and do not harm the health of your natural lashes when used correctly. Keep in mind that rubbing your eyes, tugging, or pulling on the extensions can lead to lash loss and even harm to your natural lashes.

Can I use eyeliner and lash extensions together?

With eyelash extensions, liquid, cream, and pencil liners present a risk. Oil-based liquid eyeliners are not advised since they can cause the extensions to fall out too soon and weigh down the lashes. With eyelash extensions, powder eyeliner performs best. Make careful you choose a formulation without oil.

Can you use makeup when wearing eyelash extensions?

The tips of the extensions can be covered with mascara designed especially for lash extensions. Any makeup should be removed with an oil-free eye makeup remover, such as Garnier Skinactive Micellar Cleansing Water. You can also use eye makeup and eyeliner as long as they are oil-free and taken off every day.

Can I take a shower or a swim with eyelash extensions on?

You can, but not until at least 24 hours have passed since your appointment. Depending on the glue your stylist uses, eyelash adhesives cure in anywhere between 12 and 24 hours, according to Marin. It's crucial that you treat your lashes gently and avoid letting any water touch them during this time, says Richardson. You can shower after getting lashes as long as you don’t get the lashes wet and don’t stay in the steam for too long.

Can eyelash extensions be used to wipe your eyes?
Use only cleaners created especially to be secure for eyelash extensions, advises Richardson. Ingredients in other products could make the link between your lash extensions weaker and hasten their premature shedding. If you are wearing eye makeup, gently swipe downward with oil-free pads rather than back and forth to clean your lids and lashes. Avoid rubbing or straining at your eyes in any way you can.

Should you brush your lash extensions?

Lashes can get tangled when you’re sleeping or showering, so it’s required that you gently brush your lashes with a clean spoolie brush when you wake up, after you shower, and at the end of the day. And to prevent unnecessary tangling, try to sleep on your back or side (not your stomach) and use a silk pillowcase, which tends to be gentler on extensions, says Richardson.
