Lash Extensions FAQ
1. CAN EYELASH EXTENSIONS DAMAGE YOUR NATURAL LASHES?
No, our work is based on the natural condition of your lashes (thickness, health, length),we apply them correctly and properly so lash extensions never affect your lashes’ health. Please never rub your eyes or pull on the extensions because it can cause lash loss and damage. Once applied correctly and not pulled out, lash extensions do not damage your natural lashes.
2. ARE THEY PERMANENT?
Lash extensions are semi-permanent. Your natural lashes grow and shed at their own pace which is why you need to get them filled every 2-4 weeks.
3. HOW LONG DO LASH EXTENSIONS LAST?
The lash extensions will stay on anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks. The bond life depends on many things such as: Proper aftercare, proper preparation, and proper application. Due to the lashes' growth cycle, refills must be applied to fill in the gaps from the natural lashes that have fallen out.
4. WHY DO I NEED INFILLS?
Following the life cycle of lashes, between 2-5 lashes fall out every day, depending on one’s health, which means on average in 21 days, you would have lost up to 60 lashes before new lashes are produced, and some lashes grow longer than others, causing uneven extensions. This is why we need infills every 2-4 weeks to maintain the gorgeous look.
5. HOW LONG DOES A FILL TAKE?
Refills usually take an hour and do not require as much effort as the full application.
6. I HAVE NEVER HAD EYELASH EXTENSIONS BEFORE, HOW DO I KNOW THERE WILL BE NO REACTION FROM LASH EXTENSIONS?
Patch testing (by applying some extensions on your outer lashes on each eye) is required 24 hours before application if there is no allergic reaction such as itching, redness, swelling, blistering, we can go ahead with the lash application.
7. HOW CAN I WASH THEM/WHAT CAN I USE?
An oil-free cleanser. Take a clean mascara wand and gently comb through your lashes. Rinse your lashes and pat dry. No rubbing or wiping!
8. DO I HAVE TO BE A CERTAIN AGE TO GET LASH EXTENSIONS?
No, not if you have your parents consent.
9. WHAT ARE SOME THINGS THAT AFFECT YOUR EYELASH EXTENSIONS’ LONGEVITY?
Not following the aftercare instructions
Using products that contain oils, on or around the eye area (moisturise, sunscreen, liquid eyeliner, etc)
Swimming, sunbathing, spray tans, steam or sauna without using goggles
Clients that have oily skin or hair
Using a hair dryer near the eye area
Taking antibiotics or medical treatment, while their eyelashes have been extended
Sleeping on your face
Not cleaning your lash extensions: Like your hair, your lash extensions should be cleaned a couple of times per week and brushed every day using a lash brush and lash cleanser. If you do not cleanse your lash extensions properly, dirt, oil, makeup will make extensions stick together, your pores will be blocked, so there is no place for new lashes to come out causing lash damage. Unfortunately, we don't fill in other artists' work. You will need to book a full set if you are a first time client
