Q: Can semi-permanent lashes ruin my natural lashes?
A: Lash extensions do not make your natural lashes fall out if applied correctly. At WOB, we assess each client natural lashes and apply the appropriate lash extension to the natural lash. Ensuring no damage is caused to the natural lashes.
Q: Are my natural lashes meant to fall out with the lash extensions?
Like our hair sheds, so does our eyelashes. Your lashes go through a life cycle on average of 60-90 days and all grow individually in different stages, losing an average 1-3 lashes per day. When you have semi-permanent lashes, the shedding may seem more noticeable, due to the difference in thickness and length of the synthetic lashes.
Q: Is there anything I can do to help the health of my natural lashes while I have lash extensions?
A: You can help your natural lashes stay healthy while having lash extension, by applying oil-free lash serums.
Q: How often should I come in for infills?
A: This depends on individuals, but on average of 2-3 weeks. Making sure that you still have around 40-50% of the lash extension left. Anything after 4 weeks or less than 40%, would be considered as a new set.
Q: How old do I have to be before I can have lash extensions?
A: You need to be 18 years and above. However, 16 to 18 years can have eyelash extensions with parental or guardian consent during the consultation and patch test. WOB do not apply eyelash extension to under 16.
Q: How can I make the lash extensions last longer?
A: Avoid any oily products around your lashes, oily products near your lashes can weaken the bond of the glue making the lashes fall out. Another important factor is to keep your lashes clean. Clients tend to think that, by them not touching or cleaning the lashes, makes the lashes last longer. In fact, this is not the case resulting to eye conditions such as Blepharitis. Blepharitis is basically inflammation of the eyelid. When the lashes are not clean on a regular basis, oil and dust tends to build up causing the synthetic lashes to fall out.
Q: Lashes used at WOB?
We only use high-quality mink synthetic lashes. One of the brands we use is called cashmere lashes, also known as flat lashes. This is the latest technology, having the same thickness but 3 times lighter in weight compared to standard eyelash extensions. Feeling softer and more comfortable to wear. At WOB, we use C and D curls, the length we use is from 7mm to 15mm and thickness ranging from 0.07 to 0.20.
