A question I get asked all the time is “Should I use an eyelash growth serum with my extensions?”
And the answer is a resounding YES!
I absolutely recommend a lash growth serum while wearing extensions. When you spend good money on a service you want to protect that investment right?
1. Protect the investment in your lash extensions.
You’ll not think twice about spending money on high quality hair products after a beautiful balayage. Likewise, investing in a lash growth serum is going to give you the best results when it comes to the longevity of your lash extensions and health of your natural lashes. Even if your lashes are healthy to start, a growth serum is going to keep the lashes in the follicle longer which means less time and money spent on upkeep and fills.
2. Don’t want to go without your lash extensions?
I always advise that you don’t need to take a break from extensions unless there are changes in the appearance of your lash line. However, some may still want to give their lashes a break and this is totally OK too! But if you see yourself wearing lashes for months at a time, then give your natural lashes a boost and keep those babies strong and healthy which will give stronger support for your extensions.
3. Achieve a more eye-catching set of lash extensions.
Extensions are meant to extend what’s already there, so if there’s weak natural lashes there or they’re abnormally sparse/fine due to stress or other factors then the end result will be lacklustre. In some cases, it wouldn’t be advised to proceed with extensions at all since they could do more harm than good on weak natural lashes. An analogy is like hair extensions – there needs to be healthy natural hair there in order for the final result to look great and be sustainable. If a stressor is still in your life then the lashes will continue to shed abnormally fast and there’s a lot of dough spent for upkeep. A good lash serum will give your follicles the ingredients needed to produce healthy hair.
4. If your natural lashes aren’t like they used to be, read on.
There are many reasons why your lash line might not be as full as it once was. Age, hormones, pregnancy, medical conditions or stress to name a few. Life happens and some fun things – like changes in hair growth – can make us want what we used to have. Luckily we have help as far as our eyelashes go!
The best lash serum available, period.
We carry EyEnvy lash growth serum which is absolutely amazing when used as directed. Our clients rave about it! It takes 6-8 weeks to see amazing results (a full growth cycle), but it can vary. There are other options too, such as Latisse which is very expensive and requires a prescription that you’d get from your doctor.
