Eyelash extensions are synthetic fibers that are attached to the natural lashes using medical grade adhesive. These are used to enhance the length, curliness, fullness, and thickness of natural eyelashes. With proper placement, lash extensions can make the eyes appear wider and more lifted. Semi-permanent lashes are applied by a technician, who uses a tiny, tweezer like tool to precisely affix individual eyelashes to your eyes. They do this by glueing one false lash onto each of your own natural lashes, one tiny lash at a time. The initial set will take around two to three hours to apply. Because lash extensions don't come in a strip, they are super customizable and actually look real. With proper care, they can last for six to eight weeks until they naturally fall out like your lashes usually do.
After care for eyelash extensions:
Do not get your eyelashes wet for the first two hours.
Do not use a spa, sauna or pool for the first 24 hours. The extensions need that amount of time to properly bond.
Avoid pulling or rubbing your eyes.
Do not use eyelash curlers with your extensions. With proper application you will not need them.
Only use oil-free makeup remover. If your eyelashes are tangled or crossed over, use the Spoolie to gently brush them straight and put them in place.
Proper hygiene is very important. Keep lashes clean by regular washing.
Use only mascaras that are safe for eyelash extensions, no oil-based or waterproof mascaras. Apply the mascara to the tips of your lashes.
After showering avoid rubbing lashes, its best to blot them with a towel and let them air dry.
You can also dry the lashes by using a hair dryer on the cool setting and blowing them dry from the bottom up. It makes them curlier and fluffy.
Use care when applying facial and eye creams to avoid the lash line. Too many oil-based products can break down the adhesive.
Touch-up appointments every two to four weeks to maintain your new eyelash extensions is recommended.
