If your lashes don’t shed more than normal when you have extensions, there’s no need to take a break. In fact, if you love the look of your extensions, getting them refilled every 2-3 weeks will keep your costs low while ensuring that your lashes always look fabulous.
On the other hand, if you’re losing your natural lashes at a rapid rate or your extensions are uncomfortably heavy, it’s better to take a long break. Wait for a month or two while your natural lashes recover, and consider finding a new lash technician with more experience, to prevent future mishaps.
DIY EXTENSIONS ARE AN AMAZING ALTERNATIVE
At Lilac St., we’re all about DIY lash extensions. DIY extensions save you the effort of going to the salon. They’re also a big relief if you’re worried about damage.
The DIY extension adhesive is not quite as powerful as the glue used for professional lash extensions. It’s designed to stay put for 5 to 10 days, depending on the formula, which puts less stress on your natural lashes. If there are any issues, it’s much easier to remove safely, without damaging your natural lashes.
All of our lash extensions are made of ultra-light vegan silk that won’t put pressure on your hair follicle. They come in a range of styles and sizes, from demure Dawn to dramatic Midnight. You’ll have no problem finding a set that’ll suit your taste and natural eye shape.
When applied by a pro, lash extensions shouldn’t cause any issues. Lash extensions do ruin natural lashes only when something goes amiss, either with your lash technician or with your aftercare. So make sure to do your research, pick a great salon, and practice proper aftercare – the health of your lashes depends on it!
