Do not believe everything you hear about eyelash extensions!
MYTH: Eyelash extensions make your natural lashes fall out
FACT: Your eyelashes are constantly growing and shedding, just like the hair on your head. An eyelash has a finite life of 60-90 days. They are supposed to fall out. Since they are at different stages of the growth cycle, most people lose 1-3 natural lashes per day on average and never notice it because lashes are so small. Properly applied eyelash extensions do not affect this natural growth cycle but you may notice the shedding more than before because your lashes are darker and thicker with the extensions attached.
MYTH: When my eyelash extensions came out, my natural lashes came with them.
FACT: In actuality, the reverse is happening: when your natural lashes grew out, they took the extensions with them! If good adhesive is used and proper technique is applied, eyelash extensions are designed to stay adhered to the natural lash until it grows out. If you are seeing eyelash extension shedding and your natural lash is not still attached to the extension, you are losing your extensions prematurely and should consult with your stylist as to the cause.
MYTH: Eyelash extensions hurt.
FACT: If eyelash extensions are applied properly, you should not feel anything at all. If your eyelash extensions are hurting, something is wrong with your lash application and you need to call your technician.
MYTH: I had eyelash extensions for awhile and after I had them removed, my natural lashes were shorter.
FACT: Properly applied eyelash extensions do not affect the growth of natural lashes before, during or after application. Most people get used to how they look with their eyelash extensions on, though. When their extensions are gone, their natural lashes SEEM so much smaller and thinner because they are not used to seeing them bare. It is a case of perception overriding reality. If you actually measure your lashes before and after, you would find no change.
Always remember to see proof of a trained lash technician before letting them work on your eyes!
Eyelash extensions are a tedious process and improper application can cause major side effects.
