  1. When I had my extensions after a week the extensions gets too sharp and poke my eyelids
    What is the reason

    1. Hey Anna, thanks so much for your comment. Do you still have a photo of your extensions? I would love to take a look at them for you so I can give you a proper answer, but here are some possibilities. The curl of the extension was too curly, the length was too long or the extension was too thick for your natural eyelashes. When the lashes are applied properly you shouldn’t feel them poking on your eyelids. I hope this was helpful 🙂

  2. hi there. i used to always go to the same lash person but unfortunately she stopped doing lashes, so my friend started doing lashes last October and i’ve noticed she’s really improved (because i’m always scared to go to newer lash techs) a few of my friends had her lashes so i tried hers out! but now i don’t know if she applied them properly, i noticed the lashes are closer to my lash line compared to what my other lash perosn did and am curious. how long can these stay on before they ruin my lashes?? i’ve had them on for a few weeks now and had really thick long lashes before and i just hope they aren’t ruined! can you please let me know know how long it takes for them to ruin my natural lashes, thanks!!

    1. Hey Sam,
      Thank you for your message. The speed of damage can be different depending on how the extensions are applied. To let to you know exactly is very difficult without taking a closer look at your eyelashes. If you are worried, you can always seek another lash artist for a second opinion or you can simply take a break and wear extensions on a occasional basis! I hope this helps 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for these tips! I have super sensitive eyes and tiny lashes and I ended up ripping them all out because of all these mistakes. Is there any particular glue or lash that you can recommend for sensitive eyes? And what can you do when you have 0 lashes left?

    1. Hi Karen, thank you so much for your comment! I’m so happy to hear that you find the tips helpful 🙂 Are you eyes sensitive regardless of wearing eyelash extensions? Or is the extensions are the cause to your sensitivity?
      Its possible that the extensions are not applied properly or you might be sensitive to the adhesive. If you end up with 0 lashes, it might be best to give your lashes a break and try other alternatives.

  4. Hi!! I have my very first appointment for lash extensions this week, and I’m pretty nervous that it will ruin my lashes. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do, but now that I have an appointment I’m getting nervous. I have naturally long thick lashes, and I don’t want to ruin them. Is it truly worth the risk?

    1. Hey Allie!
      Thank you for your comment! Remember getting lash extensions doesn’t automatically mean it will ruin your lashes.
      Its super important to find a experienced stylist who is able to select the right length and thickness and apply them correctly one to one. Combined with proper aftercare you can wear lash extensions without ruining your natural eyelashes!

    1. Hi Angela, thank you for your comment. Finding the perfect artist for you can be a challenge. I hope your next experience will be a good one!

  6. Hi Asako. What is the best way to prevent lash extensions from getting wet when washing your hair. I loved the article and learned so much from it.

    1. Hi Susan,

      Thank you for the kind words 🙂 I’m happy you found this article useful.

      To answer your question, you actually should get your lashes wet! It’s important to clean your lashes regularly. You can read my article about the story of one client who was wearing goggles when showering and developed lash mites.

      Also, I’ve written a guide on how to take showers with eyelash extensions here.

      However, it is always best to wait around 4 hours before getting your lashes wet so that the lash adhesive can cure completely.

      I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions!

  7. After 2 years of classic lash extensions and several technicians. I have found my lids irritated recently post procedure and I loose 50-60% of weekly reapply. The weekly appointment is necessary since so many lashes fall out on day 2-6 I am worried that I do not see many natural lashes in extension fallout areas I would like to get self glue on flash lashes of appropriate size/length to avoid putting pressure on my fine thin lashes which I worry are damaged by the extension and side sleeping with face smashed in a pillow. I am very frustrated with extensions which look great for 10 hours and are 60% gone in less than 1 week. Wouldn’t self applied artificial lash sets that are removed at night and reapplied daily be a better alternative to prevent natural lash breakage and loss

    1. Hi Michele,

      Thank you for your comment! I’m sorry to hear that eyelash extensions are not working out for you. Loosing almost half of your extensions after 1 week is very unusual, when they are properly applied and cared for you should retain about 50% after 3 weeks. If you are noticing that your natural eyelashes are thinning, it could be caused by poor application, poor extension thickness and length vs natural eyelashes, and poor aftercare. You can take a break from eyelash extensions and try a lash serum to help recover your natural eyelashes faster. And in the mean time trying alternatives like strip lashes or magnetic eyelashes can be a good option for you!

  8. After a couple months of lash extensions and then having them removed, my natural eyelashes are nothing like what they used to be. I had long and thick eyelashes and now I barely have any left to even apply mascara, will this damage resolve itself over time ?x

    1. Hi Caitlin, I’m so sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with eyelash extensions. Since you only had them on for a couple months, they will most likely grow back with some time. I might suggest that you can start using a lash serum to help speed up the process!

  9. When I had my extensions done several years a go by a student, they were crispy to the touch. They drove me nuts so i never got them done again. Is that a normal way for them to feel?? Crispy and hard??

    1. Hi Patti!

      Not at all. Lash extensions should feel soft and natural. You can think of them as an extension of how your natural lashes feel. Don’t let one bad experience drive you away from lash extensions.

    1. Some of my clients have been with me for years and come every 3 weeks on the dot. When lash extensions are applied properly with good isolation, respect the growth cycle of your natural lashes and respect the weight your natural lashes can support, eyelash extensions can be worn very long term without any risk.
