Do you have to get lash extensions removed?

While experts strongly recommend removing your extensions by a professional or waiting for them to fall out on their own, there are some methods to safely remove your eyelash extensions at home that you can try. Keep reading for more information and best practices for maintaining healthy eyelashes. First of all, we strongly recommend that you simply let your eyelashes grow. This will naturally cause your extensions to fall out on their own without having to tear out your eyelashes with them.

However, one of the main reasons why I haven't bought eyelash extensions yet is because I've always been a little afraid of what happens to your eyelashes afterwards. Most eyelash specialists will say that when done correctly (with the right skill, equipment, and individual lashes), compared to eyelash extensions they taper to appear fluttered at the ends and, if you cut them off, the blunt edge will look a bit. However, remember to read the label, as some eyelash serums are not suitable for eye health (see the blog on eyelash serums). I wouldn't recommend trying oils to remove them, as they can still damage natural eyelashes.

This thick-consistency cream-shaped remover is easy to apply and adapts very well to eyelashes without coming into contact with eyes or skin. After a couple of rounds of getting eyelash extensions and then removing them after a few months, this is how I learned to take care of my eyelashes to minimize damage and bring them back to normal. Here are two different ways you can safely remove your eyelash extensions when you have to do it yourself at home. All of the above ingredients can be purchased at Holland and Barrett and whatever you don't use to make your eyelash serum you can use on the rest of your body, face, and coconut oil can be used for cooking.

Long-term use of synthetic eyelashes entails risks, especially when it comes to the condition of natural eyelashes, since they suffer trauma to the eyelashes as they become shorter, thinner and weaker and, in some cases, the total loss of natural eyelashes may occur. I've heard of some of the dangers of eyelash extensions (thinner natural eyelashes, eye infections caused by inadequate health care), but that's not why I chose to have mine removed. The only time your natural eyelashes hurt or damage (natural eyelashes fall out together) is when the eyelash extensions were applied the wrong method in the first place. In the long term, it can interfere with natural eyelash growth or cause infections and irritations.

To remove this excess glue from your natural eyelids and lashes, run your finger over the lash line once more.
