Clients come to get extensions to enhance their natural lashes. They want more density, length curl or want to open or elongate their eyes. Sometimes clients come in with a lack of natural lashes and what they do have, is very damaged or sparse. Your natural lashes affect the design, length and thickness that a Lash Artist can apply. Some people turn to extensions thinking there is no other way to regrow your lashes. So how can you go about growing your lashes?
1. Recovery Set
While you’re wearing your recovery set of eyelash extensions done by Divine Lashes, you should not use mascara. Or any other waterproof eye makeup. Waterproof makeup is stubborn to remove and people usually use a rubbing motion to remove makeup. This will thin your lashes! Avoid rubbing your eyes, and sleeping on your face! Your natural lashes and extensions will thank you for this! You want to make sure your lash line is nice and clean. Use the lash shampoo given to you at your first appointment and use it twice daily. Your lash shampoo will clean your lashes and lash line from oils, dead skin and other things that can get stuck on your lash line. This ensures that your acquainted lash mites have less to eat and that your hair follicle is not clogged with oils and can allow your hair to grow out.
3. Growth Serum
The title says it all! Using a growth serum in conjunction with your eyelash extensions will help aid your lash growth! Many clients are worried that using a serum will affect the retention of their eyelash extensions- that’s a myth! You can use growth serum, and we recommend applying twice daily. This plus your super lightweight and natural extensions will have your natural lashes looking fabulous in no time! Divine Lashes Owner and Director, Naoko Ito, recommends using StimuLashFusion Intensive Night Conditioning Lash Enhancer Treatment!
Doing all three of these will help get you better results from your natural lashes. If you have any questions about the products you’re using you can text your Divine Lashes location or ask at your next appointment.
