If you’re worried about damaging your eyelashes with eyelash extensions but still want extra lash length, there are other options you should try.
What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions involve a technician gluing semi-permanent fibres to the tips of your natural lashes.
Can they cause damage?
Yes. There are all sorts of different ways that extensions can harm your eyes or even damage your natural lashes, including:
Eyelash extensions being too heavy and pulling down on your natural lashes, weakening the root and increasing the chance of shedding.
Eyelash extension glue being applied carelessly, causing your lashes to clump.
Eyelash extension glue irritating the skin around your eyes and eyelids, restricting lash growth.
What are the alternatives?
If theose issues sound alarming, then skip extensions altogether and go for one of these two far more reliable (and less harmful!) options.
A) False Lashes
Sounds obvious right?! Lots of people go for a lash extension thinking that it’s the hassle-free option to lasting lash length., Bbut new technology has made false lashes easier and quicker than ever to apply. The most pioneering products have also taken glue out of the equation and instead provide you with an adhesive eyeliner which holds false lashes in place securely yet effortlessly. At a tiny fraction of the cost of an eyelash extension, false lashes can be used daily for an instant lash boost.
The best part? You can now find many vegan false lash options, giving you the peace of mind that the product you are buying is 100% cruelty-free.
B) Lash Growth Serum
Whereas eyelash extensions artificially augment your lash length, Lash Growth Serums are designed to boost your natural lash growth. They work by stimulating the hair follicles along your lash line and should show results in just 6 weeks (independent studies show that using our Silly George Lash GrowthSerum boosts growth by an average of 56%). If you want to know more about the magic ingredients inside these very special serums, read our dedicated blog.
