How to Recover Your Eyelashes After Getting Eyelash Extensions

How to Recover Your Eyelashes After Getting Eyelash Extensions Eyelash extensions have become quite popular these days because they allow to forget about using mascara for several weeks and enjoy long, full, and curled eyelashes. However, getting your eyelash extensions done by a poorly trained professional may result in damage to your natural lashes. Let’s figure out how to repair your eyelashes after getting eyelash extensions.

Eyelash extensions may be made of various materials including human hair, horsehair, mink, silk, or a special synthetic fibre. They are glued to the natural lashes (never to the eyelid) using a cyanoacrylate adhesive. There are two main types of lash extensions: classic, where one extension is applied to one natural lash, and volume, where two to six thin extensions glued together in a fan shape are applied to one natural lash.

The more false lashes are used to enhance your natural lashes and the more often you get eyelash extensions, the more strain your natural eyelashes are under. Even so, eyelash extensions should cause no damage to the natural lashes when done correctly by a properly trained lash technician. However, damage may occur if the technician did something incorrectly during the procedure or used a poor-quality adhesive. In addition, improper maintenance of eyelash extensions or attempts to remove them on your own can harm your eyelashes.

The good news is, your natural eyelashes will get back to normal sooner or later after you have the extensions removed. However, it probably won’t happen quickly. It can take up to 5-6 months for your lashes to grow back healthy, and during this time they will probably be thin, short, and brittle.

Is there anything you can do to speed up the recovery of your eyelashes? As a matter of fact, there is. There are special cosmetic products that are specifically designed to repair and boost damaged eyelashes. They include oils, serums, conditioners, and toners formulated with vitamins, moisturising and nourishing ingredients, etc. In addition, there are various DIY remedies that may help you to regrow your eyelashes.

For example, carrier oils can strengthen your eyelashes and boost their growth. The best oils for lash recovery are woad oil, castor oil, burdock root oil, and argan oil. You should apply them to dry eyelashes using a special lash brush or a thoroughly washed mascara brash.

Be very careful when applying oils to prevent eye irritation. In addition, you should test the oil you’ve chosen on a small area of the skin beforehand if you are prone to allergic reactions. Apply it, for example, to the crook of your elbow and wait for 12–24 hours. If there is no redness, itching or flaking, you can use the oil on your eyelashes.

The best way to repair your eyelashes using carrier oils is to apply them before bed, leave overnight, and gently wipe off excess oil in the morning. By the way, if you want to regrow your eyelashes as quickly as possible, you should refrain from rubbing your eyes and using eyelash curlers, as well as use a mild makeup remover to avoid mechanical damage.

You can also make your eyelashes stronger by using infusions of medicinal herbs such as chamomile, calendula, and sage. Soak two cotton pads in the infusion, squeeze out the excess moisture, lay the pads on your eyelids for 10–15 minutes, then remove.

It is important to take care not only of your eyelashes, but also of the skin of the eyelids and around the eyes. Luckily, there are a lot of products for the skin around the eyes, including creams, gels, serums, fluids, etc. Look for ones formulated with moisturising, nourishing, and anti-age ingredients; they include, for example, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera leaf juice, resveratrol, green tea extract, natural oils, vitamin E, vitamin C, B vitamins, cucumber extract, etc.
