The lash extension industry has become quite saturated over the past few years. Several salons have started popping up and choosing the right lash technician for you can be quite tricky.
If you’ve had your lash extensions done and you think that they don’t feel right, then you might need to reconsider having another appointment with your previous lash technician.
Here are some signs that you may need to switch lash technicians to avoid any complications in the future.
There are white chunks on your lash line
If you noticed white chunks on your lash line, it’s possibly blepharitis. If you tell your lash technician about this and they brush it off and just tell you you’re not cleansing your eyes properly, that’s a red flag.
Those white chunks should not appear in your lash line in the first place. If the white chunks are accompanied by redness and itching, have your lash extensions removed by a professional immediately! Redness indicated inflammation and it’s important to have them removed straight away.
They don’t feel right
If your lashes feel weird or worse, hurt, you need to reconsider returning to your previous lash technician. Your lash extensions should never hurt or feel weird, they should feel comfortable all the time.
Some people complain of feeling “tightness” on their lash line, which can cause great discomfort. This may be a result of your lash technician over applying lash glue onto your lashes, the thickness of the glue may irritate your skin and cause discomfort.
If your lashes don’t feel right, have them removed immediately by a professional.
They look weird
Have you gotten your lashes done recently but you don’t feel satisfied with the results? If you notice anything weird with the way your lash extensions are laid out, or you feel as though they’re messy, it means your lash technician didn’t do a good job.
Some lash technicians tend to not apply the lash extensions properly which can cause crisscrossing as your natural lashes grow. This is caused by your lash technician not properly isolating your lashes which can cause your lash extensions to look odd or clunky.
They’re falling out!
Although it’s natural for your lash extensions to fall out after a few weeks, it’s not normal for your lash extensions should not fall out in chunks in a short span of time!
This can be caused by two things: either your lash technician wasn’t able to isolate your eyelashes proper or they were attached too quickly (speedy volume lashes).
This is a bad sign as this can potentially lead to your natural lashes to fall out and go bald!
They barely lasted
Although lash extensions do have a short lifespan, your lash extensions should still be able to stay intact a week after your appointment. If you notice your lashes falling out even though it’s been barely one week, it means that the quality of your lash extensions isn’t that good.
You can fix this by having a good aftercare routine but after that, you may want to consider having a different lash technician next time.
Don’t settle for anything less than “great.” Your lash extensions should be able to give you confidence and comfort at the same time. Be careful with choosing your lash technician and have fun!
