This is one of the most popular questions/concerns I hear about eyelash extensions, especially for someone who has never done eyelash extensions before.
You want to try eyelash extensions but of course, not at the expense of your natural lashes. So, do eyelash extensions ruin your eyelashes?
No, natural lashes shed every day, and the loss of 3-5 natural lashes a day is normal. Keep in mind that natural lashes will shed with their extension as they are attached! If you experience excessive loss of lashes, then the lash extensions may be to blame. If an inexperienced lash technician applies lashes to more than one natural lash, you may see clumps of lashes shedding, which is so unnecessary. To avoid this, make sure you are visiting a lash professional!
There are also a couple of practices to keep in mind so that your natural lashes stay nice and healthy:
- Don’t rub or tug at your lash extensions. This can cause stress or damage to the natural lashes below. Plus, the natural oils on your skin will break down the adhesive, meaning your luscious lashes won’t last as long.
- Research before selecting a lash studio. Before you trust someone to go near your eyes with tweezers, make sure they know what they’re doing. With a skilled lash technician placing each extension, you won’t have to worry about ruining your natural lashes. Need ideas for lash extension? Don’t hesitate to make an appointment with us to get a professional advice.
- Find the right adhesive. The type of lash glue used can have an impact on the state of natural lashes.
Ultimately, eyelash extensions don’t damage natural lashes when they are applied correctly. They simply extend your natural lashes. Women love eyelash extensions because they give a long, beautiful, and youthful look to their eyes. Eyelash extensions should be done by a professional lash tech if you want to avoid ruining your natural lashes. Come with us to get great eyelash extension and experience the best service ever.
