Women have explored artificial means to improve the appearance of their eyes for close to 6,000 years. The invention of eyelash extension is a current advancement in the enhancement of a woman’s eyelashes.
Here are 5 things you must know about Eyelash Extensions before booking your appointment.
- The difference between Eyelash Extensions and False Eyelashes.
An eyelash extension is a series of separate eyelashes which are glued to the current eyelashes and are expected to last for a while before requiring a touch up.
- How the eyelash extensions are put on.
A good technician with a certification from Dreamlash Academy will carefully examine your eyelashes to select the eyelashes that will most likely provide a good foundation for the extension. Each of the individual eyelash extensions will be applied by means of special glue to already existing eyelash hair. Each of the eyelids would require between 50 and 100 extensions to provide realistic eyelash.
- How to care for the Eyelash Extensions.
For the first 24 hours after the Eyelash Extensions have been applied, it is imperative to prevent contact with water as the glue bonding the extensions on the natural eyelash need to properly set. Thereafter, do not make use of removers or any oil based eye makeup as the oil will weaken the glue bond.
- How often the Eyelash Extensions need to be renewed.
The extensions will last as long as the natural hairs on which they are attached remain in your eyelid. The natural eyelashes normally last for up to 40 days. It is recommended by beauty experts that a touch up is carried out every 3 to 4 days.
- Whether your eyes or natural eyelashes will be affected?
There will be no side effects, except a person is allergic to the fiber used in manufacturing the extensions or the glue used in attaching them to the eyelashes. If there exist a known allergy to certain solvents or fibres, this should be mentioned before any sort of eyelash extension is applied.
Eyelash Extensions are safe so long as they are applied by reputable technicians with proper certification from an Eyelash Extensions Training after studying any of the relevant Eyelash Extensions Courses.
