Types of Lashes
Before your eyelash extension application, one of our estheticians will help determine the right kind of eyelash extension for you based on the natural length and texture of your lashes, your budget, your lifestyle and your goals. There are many different types of extensions to choose from in El Cerrito. We have natural mink or synthetic, depending on your preference. The mink ones are a little pricier. They are acquired by harvesting hairs from brushing the animal. Silk and synthetic ones are more affordable than natural mink and tend to last longer. With proper care, eyelash extensions are known to last for up to six weeks!
Caring for Your Extensions
There are a few things you can do to ensure that you are taking care of your extensions. Firstly, avoid rubbing, tugging and pulling at them. Our El Cerrito estheticians always recommend that our clients do not wear mascara. Not only is it not necessary, as the extension gives enough natural definition, it can cause them to clump and stick together and the removal process is hard on your delicate extensions. If you do insist on wearing mascara, there are many mascaras that are available on the market that are suitable for lash extensions and do not damage them. When your are removing your makeup, make sure to use an oil-free remover and gently wipe your lashes—you don’t want to accidentally rip them out. For more information, consult one of our El Cerrito lash experts!
After your lashes are in place, it is best to get into the habit of brushing them out with a clean mascara wand. This does two things—firstly, it ensures that they do not tangle. As your natural lashes grow out, the false extensions add weight to the natural lash and sometimes it causes them to twist and tangle. Brushing them regularly avoids this. Secondly, it stimulates the natural hair follicle of your eyelash so that it avoids any breakage and damage that may occur when your eyelashes are growing out.
