Why You Need to Clean Your Eyelash Extensions Daily!

So I know most of you probably think that it is the absolute worst thing to get your Eyelash Extensions Calgary wet! So you would also think that cleansing them is a big no no & cleansing them daily is just complete crazy-talk!

I’m sorry, but you couldn’t be more wrong! 

Cleaning you Eyelash Extensions Calgary daily is one of the most important things you can do for your lashes! Not only will they keep them clean, they will keep them lasting long!

WHAT?! They will last longer if I wash them?! This seems crazy! 

So your face, and lashes/eyelids, creates oils. Some people tend to have oilier skin than others, but we all produce some amount of it daily. And since oil is one of the #1 reasons for premature eyelash extension loss, you definitely need to keep that oil level under control. So while you are trying to get rid of some of those oils by cleansing you do not want to use a oil based cleanser. Not only does this defeat the purpose it will literally ruin the integrity of the adhesive and majority of your Eyelash Extensions Calgary will fall out. Definitely make sure that your cleanser is oil free! Your Lash Artist should be able to recommend some for you! (LUXLOX sells SugarLash LashPure cleanser which is also a great oil-free make up remover).

 

Okay so keeping your lashes lasting longer isn’t the only reason to cleanse your Eyelash Extensions Calgary daily. You will also:

  • Keep your Eyelids and Lashes free of any dirt or debris.
  • Fully get off all makeup that you wore that day/night.
  • Clean away any bacteria!

Let’s touch on the bacteria topic real quick! Many of you won’t know this but there is an extremely common bacteria that likes to grow on eyelids and lashes called staphylococcus. Staphylococcus causes Blepharitis which is an infection of the Eyelash Follicle! This can be easily caused by not cleansing your lashes daily and not removing your make up at the end of each day!
Symptoms may include: burning, grittiness, sensitivity to light and crusting or redness of the eyelid margins. It has also been associated with styes. About 30% of the general population suffers from this condition (either knowingly or unknowingly).
Thankfully this is just an infection and can easily be treated with proper cleansing while using SugarLash LashPure Eyelash Cleanser.

 

Steps to Cleansing Your Eyelash Extensions:

  1. Using your fingertips or a brush (I prefer a lash cleansing brush) gently work the lash shampoo into your eyelashes. Make sure to get up on your eyelids and to each corner of your eyes! (Use a downward motion so not to twist or pull at your lashes).
  2. Throughly rinse with water. Do not use a cotton swab or cloth. Splashing or running water over your eyelids is the best way.
  3. Dry with a hair dryer on a low temperature setting with a low speed. Hold the hair dryer below your face and use a upward flow to dry the lashes to ensure that the lashes continue to have an upward curl!
  4. Once dry comb through with your clean lash brush/mascara spoolie.

Do this daily right before bed t ensure that you have cleaned all make-up and oil off from the day! You will have healthier lashes and a much longer Eyelash Extensions life!

Hair, Eyelash & Eyebrow Extensions Calgary! |

I feel like a lot of women just love to kibosh any beauty service that their friend may be wanting to get in a desperate attempt that she won’t become more beautiful than the her! Which in all reality is so incredibly juvenile. It is best to do your own research, come up with your own answers, and above all do what it is that you want to do. But after all I am sure that is why you are here in the first place, right?! Check out this Eyelash Extensions Calgary Myths vs. Facts!

If you are wanting Eyelash Extensions in Calgary make sure you are doing your homework on the lash technician that you are planning to receive services from. You want a fully trained and certified stylist who know what they are doing! That being said if you opt for a technician who isn’t as qualified some of these myths can quickly turn into fact with improper application methods.

Eyelash Extensions Calgary, Calgary Eyelash Extensions, Lash Extensions Calgary, Calgary Lash Extensions, Lash Artist Calgary, Calgary Lash Artist, YYC Lashes, Lashes YYCHere are the Top 5 Myths of Lash Extensions:

1. Your Eyelashes Will Fall Out!

Hmm, first off this is all fact. Your eyelashes naturally shed every 4-6 weeks to make sure for new growth! While you do not have eyelash extensions applied you will most likely not notice the shedding as your natural lashes are much thinner and lighter in colour. Once the extension is added on it makes it that much more darker and thicker that you easily notice when a natural lash sheds. This is nothing to be alarmed by, it is very natural and one of the main reasons for fills. If you are looking to get Eyelash Extensions in Calgary make sure the technician is fully trained and knows the appropriate length and weight an extensions can be when it is applied to a natural lash!

2. Your Eyelashes Will Never Grow Back

This is definitely a myth. The lash cycle allows new lashes to be growing at all times. If your lashes were not growing and shedding you would have no reason to get fills every 2-4 weeks. Since the adhesive is applied a few mm above the lash line and up the shaft, there is no reason that a lash follicle could get clogged or otherwise become dormant because of lash extension application. This myth can also turn into fact if your technician for eyelash extension Calgary hasn’t been properly trained and is doing an improper application. Please do your homework!

3. Eyelash Extensions Hurt

There is absolutely no reason that eyelash extensions should hurt when properly installed (unless you have a rare allergic reaction, which may cause slight redness and discomfort). When eyelash extensions are applied properly you will barely notice that they are there. The first few days of having extensions you may notice that they are slightly heavier, thicker and longer (but isn’t that the reason you got them in the first place?) but in no way will this be painful. You may have feelings of anxiety if this is your first time getting Eyelash Extensions, but do not mistake this for pain.

 

4. After having Eyelash Extensions Removed Your Natural Lashes Will Be Shorter and Thinner

Eyelash Extensions Calgary, Calgary Eyelash Extensions, Lash Extensions Calgary, Calgary Lash Extensions, Lash Artist Calgary, Calgary Lash Artist, YYC Lashes, Lashes YYCAgain, we have another myth. It may appear that your lashes have lost their length and fullness, but in all seriousness you did. You just had your Eyelash Extensions removed. You were used to this long, full lash look for 3 weeks – 3 years so of course it is going to feel like you have itty bitty lashes now!  They are however the same length and thickness that they always were before your Eyelash Extensions were applied.

5. You Must Take Breaks

I am sure you have heard your girlfriends say that they need to take a break from their lashes to let their natural lashes breath. Unfortunately for them, they sound ridiculous. There is no requirement that lashes need to ‘breath’. They in fact don’t even know that there has been an Eyelash Extension applied, it sheds and grows as it always has with nom effect of it whatsoever. You can however takes breaks if and when you want to, but there is no requirement to do so.

Hair, Eyelash & Eyebrow Extensions Calgary! |

So I am sure a lot of you have been seeing all this crazy talk about the newest, hottest trend in Calgary; EYEBROW EXTENSIONS! I don’t know if you all are as excited as I am about this, but if you aren’t, let’s get you excited!

If you are like most women, you definitely at some point in your life have over tweezed the hairs in your brows, had a horrific waxing experience, or just altogether have the absolute wrong brow shape whether its for your face shape or just what’s on trend now. You may have even lost hair due to medical conditions. Or perhaps you colour your brows in daily to correct these problems but 1) you absolutely hate having to do this everyday or 2) you really suck at it and your brows never even remotely come close to turing out the same.

But wait, don’t fret! Eyebrow Extensions will be your new best friend!

Eyebrow Extensions Calgary are a relatively new service to be added to all the beauty enhancement services offered to women and a lot of people are unsure of this witchcraft! How does it work? How long will they last? Does it hurt? How much does it cost?

Eyebrow Extensions can be applied either onto existing brow hair, or directly onto the skin with a skin safe FDA approved clear adhesive. They are applied one by one to give the most natural look possible. There are 5 shades to choose from and natural brows can be tinted prior to the brow extensions application in order to achieve the colour colour of your overall brows if desired.

Eyebrow Extensions will last 2-3 days depending on the oil level of your face, what product you use on your face, and your ability to not pick or touch your brows!

If you are going to a certified Eyebrow Extension Calgary Stylist there will be absolutely no pain! Make sure to do your homework on potential stylists before going to them for services.

Eyebrow Extensions have a range of prices and they are based on the restoration level.

Now; in all seriousness eyebrow extensions definitely aren’t for everyone. They are suited for a single day/night event but not as an everyday, longterm solution. If you are looking for something to last you longer than 1 week and want a very low maintenance option than eyebrow tattooing is your way to go! We offer 3 different types of eyebrow tattooing including microblading, ombre brows and combo brows. Each has different styles to suit whichever look you are trying to achieve.

5 Tricks to Keep Your Hair Extensions Lasting Longer!

Hair Extensions can be a costly want for most ladies and you don’t want all that hard earned money to go straight down the drain because you weren’t taking the proper care to help them last their longest!

Getting Hair Extensions Calgary may make things even harder as the dry weather is just not the ideal climate, but nonetheless there are still steps you can make to prevent dry, damaged hair from happening.

 

Hair Extensions Calgary, Calgary Hair Extensions, Hair Extensions in Calgary, Cheap Hair Extensions Calgary,

1. Brush, Brush, Brush!

I honestly can not stress enough how important it is to brush out your hair throughly at least once a day! And not just a quick once over. Take some time (5 minutes) and brush out layers of your hair! Taking care to make sure you have no tangling or notting happening. Just because you can’t see it, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t happening. But it you are brushing these out daily you will not have issues when you come to either get maintenance (old hair removed and new extensions installed) or if you chose to remove them.

There is a reason I chose to put this as #1, as it actually is the most important rule to keeping your natural hair damage free from extensions.

2. Give your bonds some TLC

Since the bonds of either fusion or micro links are circular it is very easy for them to wrap themselves around each other, and slowly but surely cause huge matting. I have seen this first hand from clients who just weren’t up for the daily maintenance of hair extensions. One quick sure way to prevent this is, every few days take your hands and go through each bond to make sure it is unattached to its neighbour bond. Once 2 become attached they start multiplying at an alarming rate. Once there is matting it becomes a complete nightmare for the removal stage and can force you to have to cut hair where you normally wouldn’t want to.

3. Braid at night! 

By putting your extensions in a braid (or ponytail) at night, it lowers the chance of your extensions tangling in your sleep. I opt for the braid vs the ponytail because I find that the braid keeps my hair less frizzy in the morning, and completely free of tangles the next day. I am sure you could imagine the Lion King hair you would have in the morning if you choose to keep your hair down for bed!

4. Keep them Hydrated!

Do you moisturize your skin daily? I do. I also like to hydrate my hair as well. Having Hair Extensions Calgary can definitely make for slightly more work! But there is absolutely no reason you can’t have them! Just like you hydrate your skin, hydrate your extensions! My favourite way is a small amount of oil near the middle to end of the shaft. I don’t put the oil near my scalp/bond. A couple reasons are that I do not want to ruin the integrity of the bond and also because my scalp already produces natural oils and I really don’t need anymore that high up.

Another small step you can take especially if you have hair extensions in Calgary is to do a deep hydrating hair mask once a week. Again I would suggest that you use this only from the middle of the shaft down to the end of the extensions and not close to your scalp or bonds.

5. See your Extensions Stylist Regularly

Buy keeping up with your maintenance appointments you can substantially decrease your chances of matting and damage to your natural hair. All old bonds that are not in as great of condition will be removed and new hair will be added. The stylist for Hair Extensions Calgary at this point can also go through your entire head to make sure you are not missing any areas that you need to pay more attention to.
