Most of us are dreaming of having long beautiful sexy eyelashes, but unfortunately that wish is not granted to every girl. But lucky for us, there is now new technologies that allow us to have fake eyelashes extensions. Going from permanent to semi-permanent lashes, synthetic to sanitized human hair lashes, strips to cluster lashes…just to say there’s eyelashes for all of your tastes. Although the huge variety available on the market, you still need to know what you are getting yourself into. Some people’s experience was beyond great and some other, consider that move being the cause of their worst regret.
Here are some advice for who ever it concerns, please read carfully.
After you shower, you always need to reshape your extensions Comb your lashes in a gentle way to fan them out. You can also use a blow dryer set on "cool" to get that nice shape back in place. Hold the blow dryer to about 70CM away from your face.
After the firs eyelashes application, make sure not to wet them for approximately 48 hours which means no gym to avoid sweating, no steam room or sauna, no pool and no head in your shower. Wash your body not your face.
Resist the urge to pull or scratch your eyes. Don’t play too much with your lashes in order not to ruin your natural lashes.
Keep away all moisture-rich products from your lashes. Shampoo, conditioner, heavy creams or anything oil based will eventually loosen the bond, which you want to avoid. Tilt your head back as much as you can when washing your hair or even take a bath to avoid getting them wet. You can also use goggle to protect them in the shower. I can't promise that you won’t look funny, but lets pretend you’ll be alone in the shower ☺
Do yourself a favor by doing a good research first Choose a trustworthy salon, spa or eyelash extension only establishment to make sure your are being served by pros. The lash artist should be a licensed esthetician or cosmetologist and the consultation cover all your worries. Ask what type adhesive is used (it should be non-formaldehyde), and if they have a variety of lashes to be customized for you.
There you go, now you know what you're getting into. I'll have to say, some of these tips sound a somehow high-maintenance, but if you're going to spend around $200$ or more on your service, you want to make sure it lasts as much as possible.
