An Introduction to Eyelash Extensions

Extended lashes give the appearance of long, full lashes by adding length and volume to your natural lashes. Extensions use synthetic materials such as monofilament polyester thread on the eyelashes to create a fuller, longer look that is semi-permanent, meaning they can last for weeks.

Lash extensions consist of single, curved synthetic eyelashes that can be supplied in various lengths, colors, and thicknesses, which give the option of having a look from very subtle and natural to extremely dramatic. You can easily get lash extension supplies online.

An eyelash technician applies the extensions to each eyelash individually. It takes on average about one to two hours for a technician to apply a full set of eyelash extensions. These are convenient and safe to wear whilst swimming, having a shower, sleeping, or exercising. However, repeated exposure to oil can weaken the adhesive bond. The artificial lash does not impede the growth of the natural lash.

Lash extensions can last from three weeks to three months, depending on the cycle of your hair growth. Usually, a natural eyelash will fall out within 90 days and a new one grows in its place. This cycle makes it necessary to get regular top-ups for lashes that fall out.

Mascara is not necessary when wearing eyelash extensions. However, mascara still can be used if desired. It is most advisable to use a water-based mascara that is easy to remove. In fact, one of the main reasons for having extensions is to avoid the daily task of having to apply mascara.
