Here's what you need to know
First: Checkout the product and expertise of the lash stylist.
The first safety precaution you can take is to be sure that the glue is safe for your eyes and doesn’t contain anything that can harm them, like formaldehyde. Shipping glues across the world often leads to a buildup of formaldehyde by the time they reach the salon. Some glues are made in countries where the regulations are slack and glues are made in the same factories as super glue, and contain harmful chemicals.
Finding the right person to do your lash extensions is a lot like choosing a tattoo artist, or cosmetic surgeon: Because of the sensitive nature of the lashes and the surrounding area, someone who is certified to apply the lashes is definitely a must. Professionals use professional products and have been properly trained to apply the lashes without damaging your natural lashes or more importantly, your eyes.

Not all Extension brands are equal!
Eyelash extensions can be harmful to your lashes if applied wrong!!!
The number of eyelashes on each lid range widely as the top eyelid usually accommodates approximately 150 to 200 individual hairs, while the bottom eyelid may have somewhere between 75 and 100 hairs. The lifetime of a single eyelash ranges out between 150 to 200 days with the majority of them being shed in about 135 days .On an average, 1 to 5 lashes fall down every day. New lashes grow frequently and replace the lost ones to maintain the complete thick look. All in all, an eyelash takes approximately 12 weeks to re-grow after it has fallen out.
The growth of an eyelash occurs in three phases
This staggering of the phases is why you don’t lose all your eyelashes at any one time
- The Anagen Growth Phase - which is the stage when the eyelash is actively growing. At any given time, approximately 30% of your eyelashes are in this active growing phase. This phase typically lasts about 7 weeks.
- The Catagen Growth Cycle - is the stage also called the lag phase because during this time the growth of the eyelash stops and the follicle begins to shrink. This phase lasts typically for 3 weeks.
- The Telogen Growth Stage - is the final stage where the eyelash falls out. You have eyelashes in every stage of growth at all times
Second:As long as the Lashes are applied Individually with the proper weight of the extension, your
Natural lashes never get damaged by extensions.
When lashes are applied to multiple lashes they prematurely pull out the others they are attached to because they are all shedding at different rates. So clumpy, crisscross lashes are a Lash Extension NO NO.
Extensions not only come in different lengths and curvatures. they also come in different weights or diameters..
Everyone has a different natural lash density and a different natural lash thickness, thus meaning not everyone's natural lash can hold a thick or long extension. Length equals weight. Your lash may hold it in the beginning but then you may have premature lash loss causing damage. Its important that your lash artist is educated on this and offers a variety of lash of lash extensions.

One note of caution:
We hear countless stories of individuals who go to an untrained lash technician because the cost is low. They receive a substandard set of lashes that is clumpy, painful and often damaging to their lashes. A proper application of lashes is not painful during or after the procedure. Eyelash extension application is an exacting process that takes skill and time. If the cost is very cheap, you should certainly question the training of the technician as well as the quality of the product. These same individuals often end up seeking out an Certified Eyelash Extension Stylist after they try the cheap alternatives. Ultimately, most have realized from experience that the old adage “you get what you pay for” is often true.
