The Low Down on Lash Extensions
If you’ve ever heard of lash extensions, I am sure you have many questions. What are they, how do they actually work and how would you go about getting them done?
Well, that’s where I come in. I am going to answer all of those questions.
Question 1 – What are they?
Lash extensions are just that, an extension adhered to your natural lash with a special bond that adds length and volume to your natural lash.
Question 2 – How do they work?
Lash extensions are applied individually or with clusters to your natural lash line with a special long term bonding glue. They are applied to add either length, volume or both. The glue used is a special solution that will last for a very long time when care for properly.
Question 3 – Why would I want them?
Lash extensions are chosen for many different reasons. Some women choose to have them applied prior to a vacation and don’t want to waste their time applying and reapplying mascara or risking it streaking.
Other women choose them for everyday where to give their naturally shorter or thinner factory mink lashes some volume and length. Whatever the reason Lash Extensions are a great way to have fuller more becoming factory mink lashes. They can be very natural or very dramatic. It all depends on your personal style.
Question 4 – How long will they last?
With proper care and maintenance, Lash Extensions can last indefinitely. On average they will last anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks, but with regular fills will last for months.
Question 5 – How do I care for them?
Proper care with lash extensions is a must. First, you do not need to apply mascara once you have false factory mink lashes, so go ahead and avoid applying it as you will then have to clean it out of them and that will wear down the bond on the glue.
Second, avoid using makeup removers or cleansers on them that are oil based. Oil will break down the glue and cause your factory mink lashes to fall out.
Third, don’t sleep on them. It will break your real factory mink lashes and cause them to fall out, so make sure you don’t face plant into your pillow each night while you sleep.
Question 6 – Extensions vs False factory mink lashes, what’s the difference?
In appearance they can be very much the same, the difference however comes when you want to add life to the length of wear. False factory mink lashes last for one day. Usually no longer than that. Extensions will last for a very long time.
Question 7 – Why wouldn’t I just use Latisse or something like that?
Lash Extensions will give you the long full factory mink lashes you want instantly, where as special products designed to lengthen your factory mink lashes, may or may not give you the desired results. Generally you waste hundreds of dollars for little to no results.
Question 8 – Where can I get them done?
There are many different places to go, a lot with different prices. So take a little time and do your research and find a reputable place.
They are a great and amazing way to have the beautiful and full factory mink lashes you have always wanted.
