Debunked: 4 Myths About Lash Extensions That Just Aren’t True

In a previous article, we had debunked some of the myths surrounding eyebrow embroidery. Now, what about lash extensions?

It is undeniable that lashes play a huge part in improving one’s appearance by allowing your eyes to look bigger and by adding a touch of femineity. Because of this, an increasing number of people are turning to eyelash extension services to add that much-needed volume and definition to the windows of our souls.

Despite its growing popularity and numerous benefits, there are still some misconceptions surrounding this game-changing service. Here are 4 of the most common myths about eyelash extensions, debunked!

Myth #1: You can’t get them wet

One of the biggest misconceptions about eyelash extensions is that you cannot or should not get them wet. We have all likely heard someone around us saying that they “can’t get eyelash extensions” because they “don’t want the hassle of having to worry about getting them wet”.

Contrary to popular belief, washing eyelash extensions should be done frequently, ideally twice daily, as doing so will allow them to last longer. If you don’t wash them, you run the risk of your lash extensions shedding sooner as a result of the accumulated grease and grime! However, it goes without saying that when you are washing your extensions, you should exercise caution and use a gentle water-based cleanser and brush – you wouldn’t want to tug on them and yank them out!

Myth #2: It damages your natural lashes

Your natural lashes won’t be damaged if your lash specialist uses tools of good quality and is trained in the field of eyelash extensions!

Myth #2: It damages your natural lashes

To guarantee that the natural lash is not harmed, any skilled lash specialist will be thoroughly trained to know precisely what length and thickness will suit each customer. It is crucial for your lash specialist to separate your natural eyelashes from those that are growing out during the application of the eyelash extensions.

Myth #3: The process is painful

The actual application of eyelash extensions does not hurt and should not be uncomfortable. You shouldn’t experience any pain as the lash specialist attaches extensions to your natural lashes. Simply put, it should be a pain-free and smooth-sailing process!

Myth #3: The process is painful

Remember, if the eyelash extensions are applied correctly, you won’t experience any pain! Inexperienced lash specialists may make mistakes that could leave you feeling uncomfortable – so be cautious of who you trust with your eyes! Do your research and ensure that the salon you choose to get your lash extensions done at, is equipped with the professional know-how and skills to do a good job.

Myth #4: You have to take a break between each application

Generally, you don’t have to take a break between each lash extension application. This is because your extensions will grow out with your natural eyelashes, meaning that they will be taken off during a fill to be replaced with a new set of extensions. Your natural lashes will be kept healthy and continue to grow!

Myth #4: You Have To Take A Break Between Each Application

As mentioned earlier, proper eyelash extension application causes no damage to your natural lashes – so you wouldn’t need to take a break between each fill.

So, yes – that means you can have fluttery lashes all year round!


And there we have it – 4 myths about lash extensions that just aren’t true! When done right, eyelash extensions can make your life that much easier – reducing the amount of time you need to get ready each morning, since you would no longer have the time-consuming task of curling your lashes and applying mascara.
