Do Eyelash Extensions Damage Your Eyelashes?

I will soon answer this question, but first let me ask you.

Do you wish you could wake up every day with long, full eyelashes?
Are you tired of spending time each morning applying mascara and eyeliner?

Don’t worry, you are not alone. Eyelash extensions are becoming more
and more popular for this very reason as well as many others.

How long does it take to apply lash extensions?
Applying a full set of lashes takes about two hours, and can be
maintained year-round with touch-ups that are recommended for every
two to three weeks.


Do Eyelash Extensions Damage Your Eyelashes ?

Everyone has different lashes, and depending on

the condition of your own natural lashes, lash experts can only go a

certain length or thickness. (This is to ensure that your own lashes
remain healthy.) For example, if your natural lashes are on the
shorter, thinner side, you won’t be able to get a crazy, dramatic
look, because it won’t last. It’s better to start out with a natural
look if you aren’t sure or it’s your first time. It’s easier to add
more extensions next time.

How often do you need to get lash extensions redone?
Lash extensions last through a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes,
typically six to eight weeks. That said, because each person’s lash
growth is somewhat variable (just hair growth), I suggest light lash
maintenance every two to three weeks to maintain a full look.

Do lash extensions fall out over a certain period of time?
Since each lash extension is attached to a single eyelash, they will
fall out naturally along with the natural growth cycle of each lash.
We recommend a touch-up every two to three weeks.
When an inexperienced professional applies lashes, he or she often
applies one synthetic lash to three to four natural lashes, causing
clumps or the lash to break and fall out. In addition, your lashes
might fall out if you pick at them or try to pull them out yourself,
which is a big no-no. But if you avoid those two problems, your lashes
should stay intact.

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 fall out.

Just like you would with a hairstylist, research who you want to go to
and how long they have been working as a technician. Look at
before-and-after photos, read reviews and always make sure they are
licensed and lash-certified.
