It breaks my heart when we have new clients come in for a removal of extensions like this. I didn’t dare ask where she got these done, but where ever it was, I hope she never goes back. These lashes are temporary pre-made fans that were never meant to be attached using semi-permanent adhesive. I wasn’t even able to separate them with gel remover. In this case I had to take care to pull the natural lashes free using tweezers one by one.
Typically when we remove lash extensions, they glide off easily with gel remover and volume fans quickly break apart into the individual .05-.o7mm extensions. It is quick and painless. This was a bit of a disaster. You can see the natural lashes that were still embedded in the giant cluster of extensions.
This client was committed to using a growth serum for a few weeks to regrow her lashes before doing anything else to them. That is what we would have recommended after this kind of trauma to your lashes.
When people tell you extensions damage your natural lashes, THIS is what they are likely talking about. THIS Is NOT normal. Professionally applied extensions that are applied correctly WILL NOT damage your natural lashes. They are light and flexible and you should hardly notice them when they are on.
Any pulling or itching you experience are signs of lash damage. If you have any of these symptoms, have your extensions removed asap.

I just came across this article in Allure online and it makes me so sad!
This woman has an instagram page and confessed that she uses semi permanent glue to attach cluster lashes to her own lashes herself! EEP!
Her poor natural lashes are being ruined under all that glue and even worse. I am forced to believe that there are others doing this after seeing this post.

DO NOT DO THIS AT HOME!
A few days ago, the website Byrdie posted an article entitled "The Best (and Worst) Makeup for Eyelash Extensions"
In their article, they list a lot of great tips for getting the look you want without ruining your lashes as well as some helpful links to products for purchase.
I am a big fan of eyeliner and I didn't even know that an eyeliner pen was a thing! I myself use a soft pencil, but am careful to avoid the lash line so as to not get gunk in my lash extensions. I sometimes use powder, but I just can't say no to a thick and bold cat eye.

We've all see Magnetic Strip Lashes on Instagram and Facebook. So what is all the hype?!

It is of upmost importance that our clients properly clean their lash extensions between visits. We are now offering Blink Lash Foam Cleanser. It is formulated by the same manufacturer that makes our adhesive so you know it is safe.
The Miami Herald online recently posted an article addressing this very issue. Dr. Leslie Baumann wrote a great article entitled "Are You Using the Wrong Skin Cleanser? Here's How to Pick the Right Product." about cleaners in general but took the time to address lash extensions which we at Salt City Lashes appreciate. Here's what she had to say:
Cleansing with Eyelash Extensions
Eyelash extensions are becoming more and more popular, but using the wrong type of cleanser could mean frequent visits to your lash studio. If you have lash extensions, avoid using oil-based cleansers near your eyes. The oil in these products can loosen the adhesive that bonds the lash extensions to your skin.
