Eyelash extensions are a great way to enhance your look and make your eyes stand out, but can they ruin your natural lashes? The answer is no, eyelash extensions should not ruin your natural lashes when applied correctly. To ensure that your natural lashes remain healthy, it is important to select the right length and thickness of extensions and to have them applied by a professional eyelash technician. Additionally, proper aftercare is essential for keeping your lashes healthy and looking fuller for longer. When done correctly, eyelash extensions are applied one at a time to a single natural eyelash.
This allows the natural lashes to go through their growth cycle without being damaged. However, if something goes wrong with the application or aftercare, it can lead to ruined natural lashes. For example, if you pull or poke around the extensions, you may end up removing some of your own natural lashes. In addition, if you don't clean your eyelashes regularly, microscopic mites can build up and cause inflammation and itching.
This is why it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your technician. I had very long eyelashes before I got extensions, but they were almost straight and not dark. I decided to get extensions because I was tired of curling them every morning and putting on mascara. After three months of having extensions, my natural lashes were completely damaged with a couple of balding spots.
This was a result of not following the aftercare instructions properly. To sum up, eyelash extensions should not ruin your natural lashes when applied correctly and with proper aftercare. However, if something goes wrong with the application or aftercare, it can lead to ruined natural lashes.
