Eyelash extensions are a good option for someone who doesn’t want to be applying mascara daily and likes a full natural lash look without the daily maintenance of curling lashes and applying eye makeup.

I’ll examine this much talked about process of eyelash extensions and also give you the low-down on how to care for your eyelash extensions.

EYELASH EXTENSIONS PROCEDURE

Eyelash extensions are applied individually by hand to each of your own lashes by a licensed cosmetologist, aesthetician, and permanent makeup technician. This procedure is very delicate and takes anywhere from 2 to 3 hours. Your eyes must remain closed, which is not the easiest task for some people.  Normally a person's natural eyelashes fall out every 60 - 90 days and new lashes grow in immediately. It is necessary to get touch-ups to fill in the fallen lashes about every 2 to 3 weeks; however, this will vary with each person. Your natural lash cycle as well as how you take care of your lashes will affect how long your lash extensions will last.

EYELASH EXTENSIONS EXPERIENCE

A friend had eyelash extensions applied for her wedding and had this to say about the experience:
‘I had the NovaLash extensions applied. The application process took about 2 hours, and I only got upper lashes applied. I didn't experience any irritation (they have glue for contact wearers and non-contact lens wearers) and overall I was very pleased. I didn't maintain the lashes but they lasted about 3 months total, which I was very impressed with. I did lose a few of my own lashes when the false ones would pull out from rubbing my eyes, but when they came off on their own, I did not notice any lash loss.’

EYELASH EXTENSION TIPS

Remember these important rules about your eyelash extensions:

  •  Do not get lashes wet for12- 24 hours

  •  Avoid hot steam or sauna

  •  Avoid running water directly on your lashes

  •  Do not rub your eyes

  •  Only use water based mascara (optional)

  •  If applying mascara do so from middle to tip, avoid root area

  •  Use water based eye makeup remover

  •  Do not use a mechanical eyelash curler

  •  Do not pull on your lashes (this may cause your natural lashes to come out prematurely)

Care must be taken to apply eye cream sparingly while avoiding the lash line area.  Water soluble mascara can be worn; however constant use of mascara may shorten the life-span of your lashes. Don’t use waterproof mascara, as it will dissolve the bond with lash extensions.  Many lash extension artists use medical grade adhesives, which are said to be totally safe around the eye area.  Eyelash extensions are said to be safe for contact lens wearers as well.
The results of lash extensions are nothing less than amazing!  If you have the time, money (they can cost $300 or more) and patience, look into getting eyelash extensions for a lovely lash look!
