Long and luscious lashes are a coveted feature, and many women turn to lash extensions to achieve this look. However, there is a common concern that lash extensions may actually damage natural lashes. In this blog post, we will explore whether or not lash extensions can ruin your lashes.
The Process of Lash Extensions
Before we delve into whether or not lash extensions can ruin your lashes, it's important to understand the process of getting lash extensions. Lash extensions are applied individually to each natural lash using a semi-permanent adhesive. The process can take up to two hours, and the extensions can last up to eight weeks with proper care. This is why you may prefer to use “instant” lashes that can be applied only when you need them. Our Invisylash range is designed with the complete beginner in mind and provides a seamless lash look that takes seconds to apply.
Can Lash Extensions Ruin Your Lashes?
The answer to this question is both yes and no. If lash extensions are applied correctly and maintained properly, they should not cause any damage to your natural lashes. However, if extensions are applied incorrectly or not cared for properly, they can cause damage. Incorrectly applied extensions can cause tension on the natural lashes, leading to breakage or even premature loss of the lash. Improper care, such as using oil-based products or rubbing the eyes, can also cause damage to both the extensions and the natural lashes. However, our Invisylash range will not cause any damage to your natural lashes as they only need a tiny amount of Bond to stay in place all day.
How to Prevent Lash Damage
To prevent lash damage while wearing extensions, it's important to find a reputable and experienced lash technician. They should apply the extensions correctly and advise you on proper care and maintenance. It's also important to ask them about the quality of the products they use. The adhesives and lashes should be of high quality. Additionally, avoid using oil-based products on or near the lashes, as this can weaken the adhesive bond. Be gentle when cleansing the eye area, and avoid rubbing or pulling at the lashes.
Benefits of Lash Extensions
Lash extensions have a number of benefits beyond just enhancing the look of your lashes. For one, they can save time in your beauty routine but they are expensive and do take a long time to fit. You won't need to apply mascara, and you'll wake up looking more refreshed. Lash extensions can also be customized to your preferences. You can choose the length, thickness, and curl of the extensions to achieve your desired look. Another benefit is that lash extensions are waterproof, making them perfect for summer days, swimming, or working out.
If you're hesitant to try lash extensions, there are other options to achieve the look of longer lashes. Invisylash are a less invasive alternative that can also enhance your natural lashes. They provide an instant quick fix and are so much cheaper than extensions.
So, will lash extensions ruin your lashes? The answer is no, as long as they are applied correctly and maintained properly. By finding a reputable lash technician, asking about the quality of products, and taking proper care of your extensions, you can enjoy long and luscious lashes without any damage to your natural lashes. Alternatively, you can try Invisylash which have a number of benefits (price and speed) and there are lots of options to consider if you're thinking of trying them.
