As a professional lash artist, it is my duty to make sure that my clients are healthy and to inform them of the risks that come with overuse of lash extensions, as well as about the care their natural lashes need. Damage prevention starts with the application of the extensions. As a general rule, extensions should never be more than 3mm longer than the natural lash so as to avoid overloading the natural lashes and causing them to break or fall out prematurely. This problem is amplified when the natural lashes grow out – the extensions will be even further from the base of the natural lash causing unnecessary stress and likely some significant damage.
In addition to good application practices, it’s important to give your clients proper aftercare instructions so that they can properly take care of their lashes in between appointments. Lashes that are properly taken care of last longer, look better and the extensions are less likely to cause damage to the natural lashes.
To perform lash extensions on the public, the Department of Licensing of Washington State requires an individual to have a valid and current Cosmetology and/or Esthetics license.

If your lashes have been in a damaged state for more than 3 months, then we go for The Detox. For this version of Lash Rehab, a full removal of all lash extensions will need to take place. Next, we’ll go over the importance of being diligent about washing the lashes every night and using the growth serum. In *3 months, the lashes should be longer and strong enough to wear lash extensions again. However, not all clients are candidates for lash extensions.
