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.
Having great looking lashes takes more than going to see your lash artist every couple of weeks. Keep them clean and free of debris with Blink Lash Foam. Formulated to help clean your extensions without jeopardizing your retention. For sale at Salt City Lashes.
Why invest in great looking lashes and not take every step to maintain them between services? Purchase Black Diamond Sealer to help maintain your adhesive's bond and extend the life of your extensions. One tube will last months.
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.
If you want long, thick lashes, PLEASE come see us at Salt City Lashes or if you're not around Salt Lake City, Utah, find some other professional to help you achieve the look you want.
DO NOT DO THIS AT HOME!
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.

. Even though we are in Salt Lake City, I am always interested in finding out what other people in other cities are doing with lashes. For instance, LashLove in NYC was featured in the Tribeca Citizen in their New Kid on the Block section. They have a beautiful set up and it's great to see that the great people of New York City have more options for lash extensions. I want to live in a world where every woman has access to beautiful lashes like the ones obtainable at Salt City Lashes in little old Salt Lake CIty, Utah.
