Do you ever stand in front of the mirror in the mornings while applying mascara and think, “I wish I could just wake up and be ready to walk out of the house”? With eyelash extensions, that’s exactly what you can do! Luckily, contrary to popular belief, eyelash extensions are not bad for you! Here are some myths about eyelash extensions debunked:
- Extensions damage your natural lash.
FALSE – If they are applied correctly, they should not damage your natural lashes and should not hurt at all. A person should not be able to feel them. An experienced technician will glue one extension to one natural lash.
- When the extensions fall out, it pulls the natural lash out.
FALSE – Actually, the opposite is true. Your natural lash falls out and takes the extension with it. The life cycle of your natural lash is 60-90 days: each lash is in a different stage of this cycle. You may have a few that will hang on for dear life through the complete 90 days, but the majority of your lashes will shed and regrow. It is recommended to refill the lashes every 2-3 weeks.
- There is no maintenance required.
FALSE – Lash extensions are the same as getting false nails put on. Special care is required. You need to get them refilled, keep them clean, no pulling or tugging at them. Any additional wear and tear will make them come out quicker.
- Extensions make your natural lashes shorter.
FALSE – Properly applied eyelash extensions do not affect the growth of natural lashes before, during or after application. After wearing them for an extended period of time, you get used to them being longer and fuller but in reality, your natural lashes really are shorter.
- Lash Extensions don’t hold up well in hot or humid climates.
FALSE – These weather conditions actually provide the body with natural oils and nutrients that allow our lashes to hold up much better. The most popular time for lash extensions are when women go on vacation and are planning on wearing less makeup.
