Q:  Will Extensions harm my natural lashes – False

A:  When done properly, most women end up with better lashes than they had after three months, Because mascara is not being worn, the   follicles are clean and clear to produce a better natural lash.
The adhesive dries very soft on lashes without adding excessive weight, and allowing flexibility and comfort. Extension will grow (or fall) out naturally with client’s lash.

Tips for lasting extensions

1. Sleep on your back. This might sound like a crazy request (unless you already sleep on your back), but it’s really important directly following your application, since the glue takes a while to dry fully and you’ll otherwise get weird kinks. After a night or two, resume your normal sleeping position.

2. Give your lashes a little—ok, a lot— of TLC. When removing your eye makeup (liner, shadow, etc.), gently go over the area with a cleansing wipe instead of placing cotton pads or puffs over your lids—not only could you eventually weaken the extensions and mess them up, the cotton fibers get stuck on lashes.

3. Comb them out. To prevent any criss-crossing or wonky-looking lashes, use a mascara wand. Close one eye, place the brush on top of your lashes, then roll the brush gently over lashes to keep them defined and in line.

4. Resist playing with them. Your eyelashes shed naturally, so when you have extensions, this will help push them off. If an extension looks out of place, avoid playing with it or twisting or pulling it off—you’ll risk losing your natural lashes. Let them come out on their own, and use a spoolie to brush them back into place in the meantime.

*Upkeep: Extensions can last a month; they simply fall out when your natural lashes do. Oils from makeup will shorten the life of the glue bond, as will rubbing, which might pull off your natural lashes, too. You don’t need to curl them or even wear mascara, but if you want mascara, apply a water-based one to the tips only (don’t use waterproof). “Use water- or gel-based cleansers and a sponge-tip applicator or lint-free cloth to remove makeup around the eye,” says Paula McFarlane, owner of Lash Envy in London, Ont. You can also use a baby wash to keep your lashes clean, suggests Tran. Keep lashes dry after application—no sweat-inducing exercise or hot showers for the first 24 hours, and avoid swimming, and saunas, for the first 48.
