Do classic lash extensions ruin your natural lashes?

Eyelash extensions shouldn't ruin your natural lashes at all. One of the most common things I've seen in my career is that clients damage their own eyelashes by pulling and poking around. If you put on your extensions, you're more likely to remove your own natural lashes as well. This can make your lashes look plump and thinner than before you put on your extensions.

Nor can I stress enough the importance of aftercare in keeping eyelashes healthy. Proper aftercare will not only keep your lashes healthy, but it will also prolong the time between fillers and make your lashes look fuller for longer. In severe cases of not cleaning your eyelashes, microscopic mites can make your eyes inflamed and itchy. Like the hair on your head, eyelashes can get greasy and greasy if they aren't washed.

This is a perfect breeding ground for Demodex mites. The biggest myth is that eyelash extensions ruin your own lashes. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Make sure you don't rub your eyes or pull or pull on the extensions, as this can cause loss of eyelashes and even damage natural lashes.

If the eyelashes are applied correctly and on each individual eyelash, they will not fall out. Applying a full set of lashes takes approximately two hours and can be maintained throughout the year with touch-ups recommended every three to four weeks. Usually, the eyelash artist will use various lengths and degrees of curvature to create a very wide eye effect, placing longer lashes in the outer corners of the eyes and shorter lashes in the inner corners. Faulty extensions can be a nuisance, but unless you have an allergic reaction, it's best to let them run their course.

Wait until you can ask a professional to remove them or until your eyelash extensions fall out naturally. Everything will depend on the person's ability to apply eyelash extensions and their ability to use the adhesive in the right amounts. It is best to maintain a length that is no more than 2 mm longer than that of natural eyelashes and a diameter that does not exceed that of natural eyelashes. Once selected, the lashes are applied one at a time with a specially formulated semi-permanent glue that will not irritate the eyes or damage natural lashes.

That said, you can reduce those risks if you take the time to research where you're going to get your eyelash extensions. I've been in the world of makeup and beauty for years, and I've heard and seen a lot of horror stories about damaged eyelash extensions. Professionals use professional products and are properly trained to apply eyelashes without damaging natural lashes or, more importantly, eyes. With proper application, aftercare and what to do and what not to do on your lashes, let's dive deeper to debunk the myth that eyelash extensions don't damage natural lashes.

As an eyelash technician, I have found many types of lengths, curls and eye shapes and I always keep that in mind before applying anything to my client's eyes. You may think that you already have all the extensions you want, but consult your stylist to determine what type of false eyelashes are best suited for the length of the shape of your own eyelashes. Since each of your lashes is in a different phase of the growth cycle, you'll start to see a more sparse appearance after two to four weeks as new natural lashes appear and lashes that had an extension on them begin to fall out.
