"My Lash extensions are irritating my eyes, what should you do?" Master Aesthetican at Red Lotus Lash in Beaverton, talks about what to do if your having sensitivities to your new lashes.
"First of all lets run down the best things to do if you are having glue sensitivity. What that means is with in the first 24 hours of having lashes applied you become puffy, itchy or swollen. The glue for lashes takes about 48 hours to cure and as it does this the fumes irritate some sensitive eyes, I have found this to be very infrequent that it happens but it happened to me. After several month of having my lash extensions I developed and allergy to them. Now I know with a positive mind and continues exposure in small does the body get immunity to most thing if it has the nutritional support to develop strength against the perceived irritant. I used a combination of some herbs for a 2 month period of time that helped my mast cells in my eye lids be more resilient and antihistamines before my lash fills to assist with irritation while that process took place. Next sleeping the first 2 nights with wet eye pads and an eye mask keeps the glue fumes away from skin and cures the glue faster. Lash glue quality is also very important and I have a tried and true favorite that 99% of clients have no issues with. Within 2 months I had my allergies to the glue down to zero even thought most people in the industry said it could not be done. If your decision is to just have them removed do not worries. Go back to your lash technician and for a small fee usually they will have them off in a half and hour and sensitivity will be gone quickly. But if your like me a 3D volume lash fanatic than this is the answer. It worked for me.
