Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent fibers that stick to natural lashes to make the lash bangs look longer, fuller and deeper. Individual lash extensions are applied to each of your individual natural lashes (one extension per natural lash) using semi-permanent glue. The elements modify from studio to studio, but eyelash extensions can be made from synthetic fibers, mink, synthetic mink, or silk. Most studios offer clients a variety of extension lengths, curl patterns and tints to customize their appearance.
TAKING CARE OF EYELASHES IN SUMMER
The eyelash extensions are the best ally of beauty in summer so they are one of the most requested services, allowing look perfect look at the long hours beach and pool and without makeup.
However, there are many doubts that clients of this service raise on a daily basis about the specific care of their extensions at this time of year.
Neither the chlorinated water in the pool, nor the salty sea water affect the eyelash extensions, however, we must remind our clients that if they follow some simple recommendations they will be able to extend the life of their extensions.
REMOVE EYELASH EXTENSIONS
We must always recommend that for the removal of eyelash extensions they do not go to YouTube tutorials or homemade tricks. Professional glues are designed to resist water, soap, sweat and they do not come off easily, so not dissolving it properly can cause damage to natural eyelashes, even leaving some areas depopulated.
The removal of the extensions must be carried out by a professional in a specialized center and it is preferable that it be in the same center where they were put, since the eyelash technician knows which adhesive he used to place them and which is the most suitable remover.
REMOVE EYELASH EXTENSIONS HAIR BY HAIR AT HOME
The proper technique to remove the extensions is to let the product act on the eyelashes and then “sweep” the false eyelashes with the help of a cotton swab. Placing a hydrogel patch under the eye will be very useful to gradually remove the extensions.
But if you don’t have access to one of these products, the ideal is to make the extensions fall off on their own, as the adhesive deteriorates. You can use these methods to help remove them:
OIL-BASED MAKEUP REMOVER
Clean your eyes every night with an oil-based make-up remover, focusing especially on the roots . On the one hand, you will be preventing the obstruction of the glands of the eyelids (which can lead to inflammation in the eye and annoying styes). On the other hand, the oily texture will gradually undo the glue of the eyelashes in a way that is respectful of the natural ones.
HEAT AND STEAM
Take advantage of the daily hot showers to gradually deteriorate the existing glue at the junction point between the extensions and the natural eyelashes. Little by little it will come undone and the hairpieces will fall off. The facial steam baths can also speed up the process.
Use castor oil to loosen the extensions little by little. Apply a little of this oil to your eyelashes every night with your fingertips so that it works while you sleep. This oil will weaken the joints of the extensions making it easier for them to fall off on their own. Even after you’ve gotten rid of all your lash extensions, you can continue to use this castor oil every night to strengthen your natural lashes.
If you don’t have castor oil at home, you can use olive oil for the same treatment.
First of all, it is very important that you do not try to pull the extensions and wait until they have softened enough so that they come out without effort.
