The best way to learn how to do something right is to talk to an expert, and experts build their knowledge through years of practical experience. At Amazing Lash Studio Houston, we’ve spent years studying lash care, and we’re become experts in the field of beautiful, healthy lashes. To help you get the best eyelashes in Houston, here are tips we’ve learned through the years about maintaining healthy, gorgeous lashes:
1.) Strengthen and care for your own lashes
Extensions can help to beautify your lashes, but they need a healthy foundation. Maintaining good lash health is important to the longevity and strength of your extensions. Strong lashes are supported by a healthy, high-protein diet and good hydration. Applying oil-free moisturizer to the roots of your lashes can help prevent them from shedding too quickly. It’s also important to avoid over-styling; lash curling and heavy mascara usage can weaken your lashes.
2.) Know that thinning lashes will likely occur as you age
Even if you take perfect care of your lashes, eyelash thinning is bound to happen as you grow older. You can offset the effect to some degree with moisturizing and a healthy diet, but you’ll likely shed more lashes as you age. Plan for this eventuality by having lash extensions applied at regular intervals to keep your lashes looking full and gorgeous.
3.) Be cautious, but don’t be afraid to get extensions
It pays to be careful about what products go near your eye. Poorly applied extensions can cause problems, and some people do experience an allergy to the adhesive. Don’t let that frighten you away from getting extensions, though! Instead, just be sure to communicate clearly with your salon if you have any allergies or sensitivities, and be sure to check whether the eyelash extension glue is pharmaceutical grade adhesive.
4.) Know your own style
Extensions can help form any look, from gorgeous to cute. Amazing Lash Studio offers a huge choice of extension sizes and shapes, but it’s ultimately your decision which will look best. Ask for before-and-after pictures to help you decide what look best fits your style.
5.) Learn to care for your own extensions
Once they’ve been applied, you’ll need to wait between 24 and 48 hours before getting them wet so that the adhesive has time to fully dry. You’ll also want to pay special attention to keeping the lashes well-moisturized after this, and be sure to follow any other directions the salon gives you to ensure healthy lashes and long-lasting extensions.
If you keep these tips and tricks in mind, you too can start being an expert in your own beautiful lashes. Get ready for the compliments as you sport the Best Eyelashes in Houston from Amazing Lash Studio.
