What is the difference between False Band or False Individual Lashes and Eyelash Extensions?
Unlike false lashes, eyelash extensions are applied one strand at a time, allowing for a more natural and customized look that is unachievable with fake lashes. Additionally, a surgical grade adhesive is usually employed and is applied to the ends of the natural eyelash. Therefore, the adhesive and the extensions never come in contact with the surrounding skin. As a result, damages to the eyes are not possible and the likelihood of irritations in comparison to false eyelashes is significantly reduced.
How Long will my Lashes Last?
With the right maintenance, eyelash extensions can withstand the natural hair growth cycle, meaning they can last until the eyelash naturally falls out. Eyelash growth cycle refers to the cycle of time an individual’s eyelashes naturally falls out and begins re-growth. There are three stages involved in the hair growth cycle:
- Anagen / growth phase
- Catagen / transition phase
- Telogen / resting phase
The anagen phase is the only stage in which actual hair growth occurs. The hair then enters the transition and resting phases, until a new strands begins to grow, causing the current hair to fall out. Thus, the extensions bonded to the natural eyelashes also fall out as well. The whole cycle usually takes between 60 to 90 days and thereby, eyelash extensions can also last that long.
How Often should I get fills aka Retouches?
Although the eyelash extensions can last as long as our lashes or intact, it is recommended to get retouches every 3-4 weeks. Think of it like getting your nails filled. When the lash grows, the original place which the extension was glued on the natural lash has shifted down the shaft of the hair. If proper care is not taken in maintaining lashes, the extension can twirl because it is no longer balanced. It also depends on your lifestyle, and type of work you do. If you are a life guard and is in constant heat and sun, you may want to get your retouches every 2-3 weeks instead. If you work in a smokey, hot night club in Vegas in which you have to wear alot of makeup, you too may also want to get retouches done sooner.
Can I curl my lashes?
Yes you can curl your lashes. You cannot curl your lashes with a traditional eyelash curler which crimpts your lashes. By using this, it can break the adhesive bonds. A safe much gentler and effective way of curling your natural and extension lashes is by using a self-heating eyelash curling wand. These range from $14-$26. They can easily be found at ULTA, SEPHORA, and other Makeup and Beauty supply stores.
How can I help maintain my lashes?
For best results, it is recommended that eyelash extensions do not contact any moisture within 48 hours after the procedure. This includes:
After the first 48 hours, activities involving any form of moisture may resume although it is best to avoid excessive exposure to water and steam. It is also recommended that waterproof mascara and oil based products are avoided. One of the main advantages of eyelash extensions are defined eyes and eyelashes, achieved without any mascara. However, some clients prefer to still use mascara. In this case, it is best to use a water based mascara, or a mascara specifically designed for eyelash extensions. Other mascaras like waterproof compromise the adhesive used to secure the lash extensions, causing them to fall off the natural eyelash. Oil based products should also be avoided. Such products may include:
- Makeup remover
- Skin and eye creams
- Facial cleansers
Ingredients labeled on the product will indicate whether or not it is oil based. Be sure to read all labels on product packages before applying to areas on the face and particularly on, or around, the eyes and eyelashes.
How do I get the Eyelash extensions removed?
Eyelash extensions are easy to remove, should the client desire. One can either wait for the extensions to fall off with the natural eyelashes at the end of the hair growth cycle, or make an appointment with a professional in which a specialized adhesive remover is employed. If aftercare instructions are followed properly, eyelash extensions can last up to about 3 months. The process is completely safe and pain free, and results are significantly yet subtlety noticeable.
- Brush and groom your lashes gently with a disposable mascara spoolie or eye shadow brush (best choice).
- Maintaining a clean eye area and lashes daily will help preserve the health of your eyes and lashes. It will also help preserve your investment so that you can go longer between fills.
- A Gentle alcohol free pump style foaming cleanser is recommended to remove any trace makeup, dirt, and debris. Using gentle hands use only upward strokes to cleanse lash line. Use handfuls of clear water to rinse face. Another way that you can cleanse your lashes nightly, is by applying a few drops of Johnson’s & Johnson’s baby shampoo in a small cup of warm water swirl your disposable mascara wand in solution. Gently brush through lashes from the base of lash line, out to tips a few times, rinse with clear water. Do not let shower water pour down on lashes. Do not dry lashes with a towel or cotton fuzzy products. Use a blow dryer set on cool setting may be used to dry lashes. ALWAYS DRY LASHES BEFORE GOING TO BED
- Wash your eyes and lashes daily to reduce the possibility of sensitivity reactions
- Clean your eye make-up, but be gentle with your Extensions.
- Remember to come in for touch ups (I recommend every 2-3 weeks to keep them always looking fresh).
- Treat your eyes gently – as if you have makeup on that you don’t want to smudge
- Try to sleep on your back or side, avoid smashing your lashes completely as you sleep.
- When using night creams/serums, apply sparingly and blot off excess.
- When you touch your lashes, always use upward, sweeping motions – no side to side rubbing at the lash line.
- Keep your fingers off your lashes. Everytime you touch them you are transferring natural oil and germs
- Do not perm or tint lashes after lash extension application.
- Do not use a regular eyelash curler to curl Extensions (you won’t need to curl your extensions). If you want to curl your lashes, only use a heated crimp less lash wand.
- Do not rub your eyes or lashes when washing your face. Clean around the eyes with a wash cloth.
- Do not pull your lash extensions, as it will take out your own lash as well!
- Do not go in a Sauna while wearing Eyelash Extensions for at least for 48hrs. Do not get them wet at all for 24hrs.
- If you choose to wear mascara – only apply to the tips and use water-based mascara that washes off easily.
- Do not try to remove the Extensions on your own, call me and I will remove them without harming your natural lashes.
- Do not cut the Extensions (you may accidentally cut your own lashes).
- Never tug, twist, pick or pull at your lashes or extensions.
