Lash extensions are synthetic strands that are made to replicate a natural eyelash. Single strands are applied to each individual eyelash, one by one. With proper applications lash extensions look and feel completely natural.
Eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes, usually 4-8 weeks. Depending on your activity and day-to day routine, refills should be required 2-3 weeks.
Mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara. If you must apply mascara, only use a water-based mascara. Do NOT use oil-based or waterproof mascara as they can dissolve the bonding agent and can shorten the life of your eyelash extensions.
The adhesive used to adhere the extensions is waterproof allowing you to swim, shower and exercise. However regular maintenance is required to maintain the life span of your eyelash extensions.
For long lasting, healthy lashes:
*Cleanse your lashes daily
*Brush your lashes 2 X/day
*Avoid hot steam or sauna
*Use water-based make up products
*Do NOT use a mechanical lash curler
*Do NOT rub your eyes
*Do NOT pull on your lashes
With proper application and careful maintenance, lash extensions won't damage your natural lashes.Similar to the hair on the rest of your body, your eyelashes goes through 3 stages of growth. When properly applied by a certified stylist, your extensions should shed along with your natural lash.
