What are Eyelash Extensions?

There are many different ways that you can achieve long, thick eyelashes, from layers of mascara to false eyelash strips. While these options may work if you only want to enhance your eyelashes for a special occasion, they are not always the most efficient, or practical solution. Eyelash extensions, on the other hand, give you the lashes that you desire without all of the effort.

Eyelash extensions are individual lashes that are attached to your natural lashes. Depending on how full you want your lashes to be, the lash artist will apply more or less lashes to your natural lashes. In addition to the thickness, you are also able to choose the length and curl of your new eyelashes.

Your Lash Extensions Will Fall Out

One thing that many people are surprised to learn is that their eyelash extensions will fall out over time. Because your extensions are attached to your natural lashes, they will fall out as your lashes go through their growth cycle. Similarly to how your hair grows in different cycles, your eyelashes will fall out and be replaced with new lashes every three to four weeks. As a result, you will need to schedule refill appointments in order to maintain the appearance of your lash extensions.

Avoid Water For 24 Hours

Once you receive your eyelash extensions, there are a few things that you should avoid doing until the adhesive completely dries. The most important thing that you have to remember is that you can’t get your eyelashes wet for 24 hours after your appointment. For this reason, it’s best to shower right before your eyelash extension treatment and avoid going to the gym or going swimming. You want the glue used for your extensions to dry completely, but once it is dry, you don’t have to avoid any of your normal activities!

Have Your Lash Extensions Professionally Removed

It’s inevitable that some people will decide that their eyelash extensions are not worth the price, or the upkeep. If you decide that eyelash extensions are not for you, it’s vitally important that you have your lash extensions removed by a professional. The last thing you want is to accidentally ruin your natural lashes because you pulled off all of your extensions. When you have your extensions professionally removed, it is quick and painless. However, if you want to save money, you also have the option of letting your lash extensions fall out naturally.
