Getting eyelash extensions is a great way to enhance your beauty. If you’re struggling to make your eyes pop, extensions can be an excellent option. When done properly, it can reduce the hassle of having to put on fake lashes every day. With the availability of information on the web, however, many have misunderstood the procedure.
To help you understand the truth, here are some common myths debunked:
Lash extensions will harm your natural lashes
This is one of the most common reasons why most people avoid eyelash extensions. When the extensions are applied correctly, they do not harm or affect your natural lashes in any way. What causes lash fallout is when an inexperienced beautician pairs a single extension with 3-4 natural lashes. When the lashes clump, they eventually fall out. It’s, therefore, important to visit a licensed aesthetician expert with applying eyelash extensions. Worth noting is that eyelashes have 30-60 day growth cycle and they will sometimes fall out at the end of this cycle.
Eyelash extensions are painful
When not applied properly by an experienced beautician, eyelash extensions can be uncomfortable. However, when they are correctly applied, you’ll not even feel them. What causes the pain is when the lashes get stuck together causing an irritating sensation. Lashes that have been glued together are not only painful but could also result in loss of your natural lashes.
It takes long to have the extensions applied
The amount of time it requires you to have the extensions applied depends on the experience and know-how of the beautician. Additionally, if you’re having a full set, it will take a bit longer than someone who’s just getting a fill set.
These are just some of the misconceptions people believed about eyelash extensions. Don't hesitate to get some professional help if you're still confused about the procedure.
