What are lash extensions?

Lash extensions are synthetic or natural fibers that are applied to your natural eyelashes to enhance their length, thickness, and volume.

How long do lash extensions last?

The lifespan of lash extensions varies depending on the individual’s lash growth cycle and how well they are maintained. On average, lash extensions can last between two to six weeks.

How are lash extensions applied?

Lash extensions are applied by a trained professional who carefully attaches individual extensions to your natural lashes using a specially formulated adhesive. The process typically takes a couple of hours.

Are lash extensions safe?

When applied by a skilled technician and maintained properly, lash extensions are generally safe. However, it’s essential to ensure that the adhesive used is of high quality and suitable for your needs. Allergic reactions or damage to natural lashes can occur if the extensions are applied incorrectly or if low-quality products are used.

Can I wear makeup with lash extensions?

Yes, you can wear makeup with lash extensions, but it’s important to be cautious. Avoid using oil-based or waterproof makeup products on or near the lashes, as these can break down the adhesive and cause the extensions to fall out prematurely. It’s best to use oil-free and lash extension-friendly makeup products.

How do I take care of lash extensions?

  • Avoid rubbing or pulling on your lashes.
  • Keep your lashes dry for the first 24-48 hours after application.
  • Avoid oil-based or waterproof makeup products on or near the lashes.
  • Use a lash wand or brush to gently comb through the extensions.
  • Clean your lashes regularly with a lash cleanser or a gentle oil-free cleanser.

Can I swim or shower with lash extensions?

Once the adhesive has fully cured (usually after 24-48 hours), you can swim or shower with lash extensions. However, excessive exposure to water may weaken the adhesive bond and cause the extensions to fall out faster. It’s best to avoid prolonged soaking or excessive heat, such as saunas or steam rooms.

Can I curl my lash extensions?

Lash extensions are pre-curled, so you typically don’t need to curl them further. In fact, using a lash curler can damage both the extensions and your natural lashes. If you desire a more dramatic curl, discuss it with your lash technician who can choose a suitable curl type for your extensions.

Can I remove my lash extensions at home?

Once the adhesive has fully cured (usually after 24-48 hours), you can swim or shower with lash extensions. However, excessive exposure to water may weaken the adhesive bond and cause the extensions to fall out faster. It’s best to avoid prolonged soaking or excessive heat, such as saunas or steam rooms.

How often should I get lash extensions refilled?

Lash extensions gradually shed with your natural lashes as part of the normal growth cycle. To maintain a full and fresh look, it’s recommended to schedule lash refill appointments every two to four weeks, depending on your lash growth and personal preferences.

Disclaimer: Please note that individual experiences with lash extensions may vary, and it’s always best to consult with a professional lash technician for personalized advice and recommendations.
