Removing eyelash extensions
Obviously the smartest thing to do is to go back to your eyelash stylist to have them removed , this is a service that takes about 10 mins and will cost about $30.
There is a fairly easy way to remove them yourself, I talk about that a bit more later. But first, did you know that you don’t need a new set every 4 weeks? I’ve had a few ladies lately that have been to other salons who had no idea that you can just get your lashes filled in every 2 - 4 weeks. I’ve been in the beauty industry for 30 years and have been an eyelash stylist for 12 years now, nothing surprises me too much these days. There seems to be a lot of girls out there these days that have done a one day course in a subject and call themselves Beauty Therapists. Please make sure that you go to someone that will educate you in how to look after your new eyelash extensions, eg, how to clean the, when to have them filled, how to have them removed and basic up keep of your new addition to your face.
If you can’t get to an eyelash salon, you can break down the glue that is attaching the extension to your natural lash in several different ways. Salt, steam and oil will all help your lashes to fall off, you could simply take some salt water out of the ocean and very sparingly apply that to the base of your lashes several times a day or alternatively make a salt solution with rock salt and warm water, also dab with oil (a good quality olive or canola oil) several times also. A facial will help push the process along nicely due to the oil in the products used and the steamer. All of these methods will take a few days to break down the glue if the lashes where applied correctly in the first place (eg not too much glue). These are simply suggestions, I don’t know where you had your lashes done so I don’t know if they where applied correctly. I highly suggest that everyone just go back to their eyelash stylist for the correct procedure or you could just wait 6 to 8 weeks for your eyelash cycle to renew itself and they will all fall out with the natural lash in that time.
