Do Eyelash Extensions Ruin Your Natural Lashes? MYTH !!

When it comes to looking your best, sorting out fact from fiction may be worthwhile. Eyelash extensions tend to be reputable for mishaps that occur once you leave your session. A well-known misconception is that adding false eyelashes can harm your own lashes. However, that is not the case. Here's what you need to know before you decide to skip your next eyelash appointment.


The most popular myth is that eyelash extensions rip out natural lashes and damage the follicle. Let's be clear, your natural lashes shed whether you decide to get extensions or not. This occurs every four to six weeks. Synthetic lashes adhere to your natural lashes. If they were ripped out by extensions with little to no hope of growing back, there would be nothing to glue the lashes too. When removing the bold, dramatic, full lashes, it may appear that your lashes have been snagged, probably because you have become accustomed to the lash enhancements. Although we’re debunking this myth, understand that this is assuming the lash extensions have been applied correctly by a professional and you practice proper aftercare. When applying the lashes, there should not be clumps of glue or too many lashes that they weigh your lids down. You should also visit your technician when you are ready to remove the lashes versus trying to pull them off yourself.


Some other myths are that the process is painful, your natural lashes need time to breath in between sessions and that they inhibit daily activities. These are all false. It is important to make sure your technician is properly trained and a specialist in eyelash extensions. Also, ensure you are maintaining your extensions by avoiding oil-based and waterproof cosmetics as well as heat and eyelash curlers. With a little TLC, you can sport your lash extensions without causing harm to your natural eyelashes. So fear not, you deserve to enjoy looking your best!
