The eyelash extensions are increasingly popular and although many women already have dared to try, there are others that still have some doubts about Classic Lash Extensions.
Many questions constantly arise such as if they hurt the natural eyelashes or if they cause any kind of allergy. For this reason, here we will solve all the myths that surround them.
Do eyelash extensions throw away my natural tinctures?
FALSE. It is the most widespread myth about extensions, however, when they are applied by a professional, your eyelashes are not at risk.
The truth is that we lose 5 eyelashes a day and it takes approximately 90 days to be born again. When they complete their life cycle and fall, you will notice fewer eyelashes for a visual effect.
Keep in mind that the extensions fall along with your natural eyelashes and we go from having a higher volume, to seeing our natural look again.
Are all lash application techniques the same?
FALSE. There are different techniques like Russian volume, 4D, 6D, etc. It has been proven that the classic or 1×1 technique is the preferred one for girls since it achieves a volume effect without losing the natural appearance. No one will notice that you use extensions!
Can I get my extensions wet?
TRUTH. During the first 24 hours after application or touch-ups of Classic Lash Extensions, it is recommended not to get them wet as water can weaken the adhesive before it dries completely.
However, once this time has elapsed, you can even swim in the sea without any problem.
Is the application process painful?

Is it necessary to take a break from eyelash extensions?
FALSE. This is one of the most common questions, some brands assure that it is necessary to remove the eyelashes every 3 months, but if a correct application is made, it is not necessary.
For that, it is important that you attend your maintenance on time since, in them, the beauticians remove the grown eyelashes and replace new extensions.
Do I have to be careful with my eyelash extensions?
