Too many times we at Salt City Lashes will get a new client who has on a bad set of eyelash extensions. Sometimes they are so bad that their lashes are too damaged and short to apply eyelash extensions safely. (To these ill trained lash artists, we implore you to take our training.) For these unfortunate victims we typically recommend they use a lash serum and return in 2-4 weeks for eyelash extension services at Salt City Lashes where we will never damage your natural lashes. We also offer free removal to anyone with lash extensions whether you got them from us or not.
Here is one article and review of a lash serum found on The Courier-Journal.com
The Best | Cosmetic eyelash builder

When I first heard about the prescription drug to grow eyelashes, it caught my attention and made me wonder about my eyelashes.
I have always hated mascara and thought it was painful to wear. My dad has threatened to disown me over the fact that I can get anything and everything into my eyes at any given point in time. So, when I heard the ad, I thought about the purpose of my lashes: They were there to keep things out of my eyes.
I called my doctor. He told me that it was really expensive and that my insurance would not cover it. OK, but I wouldn't give up.
I investigated over-the-counter/cosmetic lash builders. I had never noticed that there was such a thing until I heard the prescription drug ad. I located one and decided to try it.
I bought a tube of eyelash-enhancing serum called RapidLash. It is made in the United States and contains a product called Hexatein complex. It is applied at night to the tops of both the upper and lower lashes with a small brush. It is totally painless.
In about one week, I saw results. I had lashes! In two weeks, I had lashes to which mascara applied easily and looked nice. Mascara was no longer a pain.
The product is available in almost any drugstore for $40-$50. A tube lasts right at 30 days. It never has made my lashes such that I do not need mascara, but it has made mascara easier to apply and gotten me compliments on my lashes.
The best part of it for me is that I have not gotten anything airborne into my eyes since the 10th day of using the product.
It may be worth trying if you get things into your eyes easily or if you hate mascara but feel that you need to wear it.
