Re: HELP! I want to apply eyelash extensions, but...You know what...I don't think lash extensions are all that it's cracked up to be for some people. It looked fabulous the first couple days I had them on, but the thing was the glue that the professional used was down right irritating. Every time I washed my face, or my eyes would water ever so slightly...I would get the worst burning sensation in my eyes that I have ever felt. It was almost as if there was a timed-release for the fumes to keep coming from that darn glue!!! It was a whole month of torture for something that had it's optimum beauty for a couple weeks. My eyelashes also shed like crazy naturally, so of course it didn't last.
I guess I might go for it again, but I will definitely have things done differently next time. For one thing, I am going to have a different glue used with no fumes!!! I was so sick of staying up all hours of the night in sheer pain due to my eye watering and getting tiny amounts of glue/fumes in it. If any of you go to have this done, and the esthetician comes at you with black glue from a little purple bottle with Japanese writing all over it....RUUUN!!!! Do not let her/him use that low quality product, you will be VERY sorry.
Also, for those who are still considering this option, you may want to use a "lash coater" to seal off your lashes and prevent lint buildup at the glue site. It also keeps the extensions from coming off your lashes before they are naturally shed.
Oh yes, I forgot to mention...no matter what anyone tells you, this technique works best and looks best on those who have at least a slight natural curl (lash curlers after this procedure are a NO-NO), and a medium density lash line (no sparsity).
