LASH FACTS

 

Gorgeous, long and full eyelashes can remarkably enhance the beauty of your eyes.


Natural eyelashes always grow to a limited length. This is different for every person though.


Normally, the structure and arrangement of your natural lash line is not regular – it is shorter on the sides and longer in areas close to the center. For that reason our Lash Artists follow the natural line and have perfected the craft of applying lash extensions that look amazingly real!


Ancient Egyptian femme fatales were known to have used various dyes in order to color their lashes. It goes without saying that eyelashes have for long been associated with seductive feminine characteristics.


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. So your
lashes never get damaged by extensions.


The lifetime of a single eyelash ranges out between 150 to 200 days with the majority of them being shed in about 135 days.


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.


A healthy lifestyle will result in faster growth of your eyelashes. Individuals who are not as healthy will have eyelashes that grow slower.


 

The speed of growth is also impacted by the age of the individual. You will lose more eyelashes as you get older and it will also take longer to grow back. All in all, an eyelash takes approximately 12 weeks to re-grow after it has fallen out.
 

Hair protects any area that it covers, including eyelashes from anything that might cause the body harm. For instance, sunlight bounces off the hair of the eyelashes to protect the eyes. Eyelashes also protect the eyes from pollen duct and other harmful foreign particles.

 

The growth of an eyelash occurs in three phases

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. The Telogen Growth Stage -  is the final stage where the eyelash falls out. You have eyelashes in every stage of growth at all times. This staggering of the phases is why you don’t lose all your eyelashes at any one time.

 

LASH EXTENSION CARE

 

It takes 48 hours for the adhesive to dry thoroughly and yield a strong, durable bond. During this time, the adhesive is sensitive to moisture, steam, excessive heat, cosmetic ingredients coming into contact with the adhesive bond and friction from rubbing and cleansing.


The following activities will result in a weaker bond, premature eyelash extension loss and or irritation and therefore should be AVOIDED during the first 48 hours:

  • Showering or wetting your lashes
  • Exposure to heat, steam, sauna and friction
  • Application of eye and eyelash cosmetics
  • Rubbing your eyes into your pillow
  • Receiving chemical treatments, such as eyelash tinting or perming
  • Receiving irritating eye area treatments, such as strong chemical peels, skin re-surfacing procedures, eyebrow waxing or laser treatments.
     

After the first 48 hours after eyelash extensions

  • Keep sauna, steam room and tanning visits to a minimum as the application of constant heat and moisture weakens the adhesive bond resulting in premature lash extension loss.
     
  • Cleanse your lashes and your eyelids daily to maintain healthy and beautiful lashes and lash follicles. Do not use cotton balls, cotton rounds or swabs directly on the eyelashes as the fibers may get lodges in the bond areas lash extensions. (Cleanse your face and eyes prior to showering to minimize exposure of lashes to water)
     
  • Groom your lashes daily to style your lash extensions into place
