Do Lash Extensions Harm Your Natural Lashes?

Are your natural lashes getting shorter and thinner after every visit to the lash studio? Ugh! It's annoying to pay all that money every 2-3 weeks just to cause damage to your own lashes, right? 

If natural looks are more your thing, extensions and thickening methods typically aren't too damaging since, in this case, only one artificial lash is glued onto a natural lash.

However, if you prefer more drama and more volume, up to eight artificial lashes can be attached to a single natural lash. This added weight, especially at the roots, can cause significant damage over time.

With GirlGotLashes extensions, your natural lashes do still carry some weight, but here's the game-changer: our unique approach distributes that weight evenly across your entire lash line, so that pressure isn't concentrated on any single lash. On top of that, our DIY lash extensions are crafted from an incredibly fine and ultra-thin synthetic fiber. As a result, they're hard to detect and, most importantly, won't damage your natural lashes!

Let's talk about lash glue. Studio glue is a bit like superglue; it sticks fast and dries quickly, but it's also aggressive and can trigger allergies in many clients. Enter GGL glue! Our formula doesn't release harmful fumes, it's both suitable and approved to home use, and here's the kicker - you can even apply it with your eye open! That's how gentle our glue is. However, it does take longer to dry vs. studio glue. Why? Because GGL lash glue never completely cures. Now, that might sound like some sort of mistake at first, but it's indeed intentional. Remember, GGL extensions aren't bonded to a single lash like professional extensions; they're distributed evenly across several of your own lashes. This calls for flexible glue. If it were to harden completely, your natural lashes would be under constant tension, causing damage and discomfort (due to rigid glue!)

We care about the health of your natural lashes. That's why we recommend applying a fresh set of lash extensions after a week. Take a night off or a couple of days to let your lashes breathe freely. The best part? You get to rub your eyes freely for a while! This luxury "pause" after a week isn't something you'd experience with professional lash extensions; the old extensions are removed, and fresh ones are applied, or they're simply refilled, all in the same appointment, which means your natural lashes miss out on some beneficial R&R time in between looks.

We suggest giving your natural lashes as much TLC as possible. You can do this by applying an eyelash serum every evening while you give your natural lashes a break from wearing extensions. Shower them with extra love by using a top-of-the-range serum or applying natural products like coconut oil.

With GirlGotLashes extensions, you can switch between stunning lash looks as often as you desire, all while maintaining the health and happiness of your natural lashes.
