  1. Have had professionally applied extensions for about 2 years with refills every 2 to 3 weeks max. Had them removed yesterday to give my eyelashes a pause…and I’m dismayed at the extensive damage to my formerly thick & full eyelashes. They’re non existent compared to before extensions.

    Wish I’d never done this….they may never recover.

  2. Hi Colleen,

    This is terrible. However, I can assure you that the problem is not eyelash extensions but rather the application. Several of my clients have had lash extensions with me for many many years without taking a break and their natural lashes are just as healthy. The key is to respect the natural lash health. Proper application is a technique that takes time to master.

  3. When my extension were grown out, I have noticed my natural lashes have lost their curl? Could this be due to the extensions? It has been almost 3 months sine they were applied and lasted about 3-4weeks before they all grew out.

  4. Hi Nadine,

    I have personally never experienced any of my clients losing the curl of their natural lashes. I always make sure to use lash extensions that have the proper length and weight that can be supported by the natural lash.

  5. Hi there,
    I have a question, the glue which has retention of 8 weeks doesn’t damage our natural growth?
    Because i’ve seen some of the applications the lashes doesn’t even grow at all after 5 to 6 weeks?

  6. Hey Anum,

    Love the question. When eyelash extensions are applied properly, they should absolutely respect the natural growth cycle of your natural lashes. Therefore, a retention of 8 weeks is a little too long. It could be a symptom of poor application such as applying lashes on baby lashes or stickies.

  7. Is there special glue I can get for lashes. My eyes get very itchy to the glue salons use. Someone told me they have glue for Sensitive eyes.

  8. Yes, you can ask your lash salon to use lash glue specifically designed for sensitive eyes. The adhesive will dry slower and release fewer formaldehyde fumes.

    However, make sure you don’t have an allergy given what you already know. You may ask them for a patch test before doing the full lash set.

  9. Hello 🙂

    So, as someone who has never gotten extensions before… How do I pick the correct salon and how can I make sure they are applying the extensions correctly? I don’t want to go into the salon and tell the technician how to do their job. I am just so worried about my natural lashes and the most common mistakes made.

  10. Hi Marissa,

    One of the best ways to choose a good salon is to ask for recent pictures of their work. Also, you can certainly ask them what their values are and how they preserve the health of the natural lashes.
