How to Rehab Eyelashes After Extensions: A Guide for Professionals

As a professional eyelash extension technician, it is your duty to ensure that your customers are healthy and informed about the risks involved in overusing eyelash extensions, as well as the care their natural eyelashes need. Eyelash extensions are used to add length and volume to existing lashes using extensions attached to the eyelashes. Unfortunately, if this process is not carried out correctly by a specialist, extensions can pull on natural lashes and cause them to fall out. When this happens, the fastest path to eyelash recovery is not just taking a break from eyelash extensions, but also taking a break from makeup completely.

This allows the lashes to rest and recover from any damage that may have been caused. Additionally, there are several natural oils that can be used to help repair damaged eyelashes. Coconut oil, lavender oil, castor oil, and rosemary oil are all great options for treating damaged eyelashes. To use these oils, your customer should gently massage small amounts of the oil into their eyelashes before going to bed.

It is important to note that the oil should not be applied directly to the eyes; they should squeeze a couple of drops on their fingertips or on a mascara stick and gently treat their eyelashes with their eyes closed. If your customer has damaged natural eyelashes, it's best to give them some tips on how you can repair them. Eyelashes can fall out for several reasons, apart from extensions, such as rubbing them hard to remove waterproof mascara, using a product that irritates the eye area, or even due to stress. A great way to help repair damaged eyelashes is by using an eyelash serum.

These serums contain peptides and lipids that help strengthen eyelash follicle proteins and promote repair and recovery. Additionally, they contain moisture-retaining molecules that help prevent breakage and strengthen eyelashes. Another option for repairing damaged eyelashes is magnetic lashes. Magnetic lashes come in all types of lashes and in a few different colors, and they're not too expensive (but they're not as cheap as you might think).

Magnetic lashes are a great option for those who want longer and thicker eyelashes without having to use mascara or excessive use of eyelash curlers which can weaken eyelashes over time. It is important for professionals in the beauty industry to understand how to rehab eyelashes after extensions so that they can provide their customers with the best advice possible. Taking a break from makeup and using natural oils or serums can help repair damaged eyelashes quickly and effectively.
