This is one of the most common questions/concerns our lash experts at Reign Studio hear concerning eyelash extensions, particularly from people who have never had them done before. You’d like to experiment with eyelash extensions, but not at the expense of your natural lashes.
So is it true that eyelash extensions can harm your natural lashes?
When placed correctly, eyelash extensions do not harm your natural lashes. To avoid harming natural lashes, lash extensions should be carefully chosen (length and thickness) and applied one at a time to one natural eyelash.
The Lash Techs at Reign Studio have discussed why eyelash extensions do not harm your lashes, as well as the practices that can harm them. When a new client comes in, there are three frequent mistakes we’ve seen people at another salon do again and time again. We simply wish to improve the lash industry and make your experience fabulous by sharing these.
Let’s get started!
Why Don’t Eyelash Extensions Damage Your Natural Lashes?
A single natural lash has a growth cycle of about 90 days to 5 days, depending on the genetics of the individual. Hair grows to a specific length before stopping. After reaching their full length, they finally shed.
One to One application
Because eyelash extensions are put one at a time to a single natural lash, the natural lash can freely grow and shed while the extension is linked to it.
Eyelash extensions will not harm your natural lashes if the growth cycle of your natural lashes is carefully observed. Every lash stylist should understand this fundamental idea.
Wearing proper eyelash extensions has no effect on the normal lash growth cycle.
3 Improper Applications That Will Damage Your Natural Lashes
The following are the three most common blunders an eyelash specialist can do that will harm your natural lashes:
1. Extenders are overly bulky: Not only is the natural lash length, but also the natural lash thickness, the most significant consideration in selecting the right lash extensions. By taking into account these two factors, you’ll be able to choose an eyelash extension that complements your natural lashes.
2. Stickies: When two or more lashes and/or extensions are cemented together, this is referred to as a sticky. Stickies are a prevalent culprit among inexperienced lash artists and a leading cause of lash breakage.
When you have stickies, you have a glued-together cluster of lashes and extensions which is not only unattractive, but it is also detrimental to your natural lashes.
If a natural lash is still developing in the adhesive, it will continue to grow and pull on the lashes stuck to it. It has the ability to pull out your other lashes as well. When the natural lash’s growth cycle is complete, it will shed.
Prematurely removing natural lashes might harm and/or damage the hair follicle. If an eyelash technician has too many stickies, their clients’ lashes will become highly damaged over time.
3. Nailheads: When an eyelash extension adheres to the skin, it is called a nail head. Nothing like this should ever happen. The skin should never come into touch with the glue when a correctly fastened extension is applied to a natural lash.
Do Eyelash Extensions Shorten Your Eyelashes?
Natural lashes will not be shortened by eyelash extensions. Lash extensions that are applied correctly, chosen appropriately for the weight that the natural lash can handle, and properly cared for providing a healthy lash line.
In A Nutshell
Finally, when performed correctly, eyelash extensions do not harm natural lashes. They just add length to your natural lashes.
Eyelash extensions are popular among women because they give their eyes a longer, more appealing, and younger appearance.
Lash extensions are one of the most effective ways to make your eyes appear younger by adding length to your lashes. If you have a fatigued appearance, you can also make them darker naturally.
