There is a such thing as lash mites that can get into your lashes?
The eyelash mite or the Demodex folliculitis is a parasite found in the follicles of our faces, mainly, in the nose, cheeks and most especially the eyelash area.
PSA for all clients to be careful around heat. With the summer here, with our activities. Be super careful! This includes but not limited to barbeques, campfires, blow dryers, ovens etc
Earphones are always welcomed so come relaxed and ready to nap J
LASHES AND OIL DO NOT GET ALONG
Oil on our lash extensions breaks down the bond of our adhesive prematurely and causes lashes
to “slip off”
Oil can get into your lashes from a number of things:
1.) Oil based eyeliners
2.) Oily foundation
3.) Oily make up removers
WASH YOUR LASHES DAILY
Sebum natural oil is produced by the sebaceous glands in your hair follicles and keeps your body hair from drying out, and it’s also what causes our hair to get oily after a day or two without washing.
Daily washes with your lash shampoo keeps your eyelid skin and lash extensions free of any dirt or debris, clean of bacteria and OIL!
Facts about lashes
Lashes grow in three periods.
There's the anagen phase (active growth period), the catagen phase (transitional period), and the telogen phase (resting period). And at any given time, 90% of your lashes are in the active growth stage where they grow about .16 millimeters a day. So, if you cut your lashes they will grow back... it will just take about five months.
Eyelashes are made up of only two things
Eyelashes are made up of only two things:
Water and keratin; to be specific, 97% keratin and only 3% water. Keratin is a protein that’s common in hair, skin, and nails, and natural silk!
Only mammals grow eyelashes
(That’s why people say they feel like a “Lizard” without their lash extensions!)There are approximately 200 lashes on the upper lids, while the lower lashes have approximately 100 lashes. The lower lashes usually have about 50% the amount of the upper lashes.
