There’s a lot of chatter out there about lash extensions ruining your natural lashes.
It’s a beauty myth that’s been floating around. But is there some truth to it?
Lots of issues and aspects need to be considered when it comes to lashes (they are next to your eyes, after all!).
You need to ask questions, do your research, go to a clean, established place, and work with a skilled stylist who has been trained in the technique. To help you make a decision about whether eyelash extensions are right for you here are the things you need to consider.
The first and most important step is determining if you are a good candidate for eyelash extensions.
- Do I sleep on my face a lot?
- Do I rub my eyes a lot?
- Do I have a tendency to pull at my lashes?
- Have I had a recent eye infection that could make me sensitive to extensions?
Knowing the kind of material used and Origin of the lash extension is also very important.
The difference nowadays between natural mink and synthetic silk extensions are almost undetectable. Plus, silk lashes are also entirely hypoallergenic; if you are allergic to animal hair,
you may experience an allergic reaction to the mink.
You may think you have the extensions you want all figured out,but consult your stylist to determine which kind of falsies are best suited for the length of shape of your own lashes.
It could be different from what you imagined. Wearing lashes that are too long or too thick can spell damage in the long-run; they weigh more than shorter lashes and can cause stress to the hair follicle.That stress can make your natural lashes fall out prematurely, and when that consistently happens it can cause permanent damage. It’s best to stick to a length that is not more than 2mm longer than that of your natural lashes and a diameter that does not exceed that of your natural lash.
Getting the right lash extension is very crucial to keeping your natural eyelash intact.
Always put your eye health first.
