Before you go to a beauty parlour for eyelash lengthening cosmetic therapy or before you decide to lengthen your eyelashes on your own at home, it is worth getting to know, how this kind of a beauty treatment looks like and how you have to prepare for it. Similarly important is following the prescriptions of a beautician’s given after the treatment of lengthening eyelashes.
What is the purpose of lengthening eyelashes?
In general, women want to look stunning and they are willing to do almost everything to fix their flaws of their pulchritude. If Mother Nature bestowed some of them with short, thin and weak eyelashes, women spare their time and money to get what is necessary, just for the sake of charming appearance. That is the reason, why the women are eager to undergo beauty treatments of eyelash lengthening, both at home and at the beauty parlours. This kind of appearance enhancement has either long-lasting effects or the results of the treatment can last till the first make-up removal. In the first case, the eyelashes should be covered with special preparations like, for example, oils or conditioners containing active substances. One of those types of conditioners is Nanolash. This conditioner stimulates growth of new eyelashes, lengthens eyelashes, thickens them and changes their colour into darker one. Additionally, Nanolash regenerates, moisturizes and nourishes eyelashes, and at the same time, eyelid skin is provided with the protection from contaminates coming from the external environment. What is more, Nanolash is easy to apply and the first effects become obviously visible after two or three weeks of the cosmetic therapy. The ultimate results, such as long, thick and strong eyelashes, are achieved after two or three months since the first application of the product. When it comes to the short-lived beauty treatments, we can enumerate techniques which require, for instance, attaching of false eyelashes (for example, strip eyelashes, party eyelashes or single lashes) to the natural ones, growing on the eyelids. This kind of treatment can be performed in the beauty parlour or at home, as well. Obviously, eyelashes are often extended mainly either before an important family ceremony (in most cases before weddings) or to make oneself feel better (when the person lost eyelashes as a consequence of an afflicted disease.)
Eyelash lengthening in the beauty parlour – how is it performed?
While deciding on lengthening eyelashes at a beautician’s, we have to remember about a few essential aspects. First of all, is is advisable to check, if we are destined for the treatment, in other words, if we are not in the group of people who cannot benefit from the treatment because of the contraindications. These may include: eye ailments, allergies or dermatological ailments concerning the eye skin area, lack of eyelashes, baldness, too short or too damaged eyelashes, hyperactivity, allergies to an adhesive ingredients or materials used to the production of the false eyelashes, chemotherapy and hair pulling disorder. If no of the above-mentioned contradictions applies to you, you are free to lengthen your eyelashes.
On the very day of the beauty treatment we have to set some time aside because eyelash lengthening process lasts from an hour and a half up to three hours – it depends on the client’s eyelash condition and the beautician’s skills (let them be excellent.) Before the treatment, it is necessary to remove make-up precisely. Obviously, the beautician can do it on her own, nevertheless, some of them adds this procedure to the bill. How does eyelash extension look like? Firstly, the beautician applies tonic on the eye skin area. Secondly, she separates upper eyelashes from the lower with the special pads which, in turn, can be soaked with nourishing substances, such as, collagen or vitamins. When those steps are taken, the beautician can start to lengthen the eyelashes. She picks one natural eyelash and attaches to it one false eyelash. Approximately, 200 false eyelashes are attached to the upper eyelid, whereas, 100 are attached to the lower one. The length, colour, angle of curving and the materials out of which the false eyelashes are made from are individually selected by the beautician, who has to do it wisely enough to achieve the best possible effect of eyelash lengthening process. However, this is not everything. Every few weeks, it is completely necessary to infill eyelashes. The cost of the first visit in the beauty parlour vary from 30 up to 100 pounds, and the cost of infills reaches even 50 pounds. In general, the cost of the eyelash lengthening treatment is set by the individual beauty parlours themselves.
Eyelash lengthening at home – oils, conditioners and false eyelash attachment.
There is no need in visiting the beautician to get your eyelash extended. You can do it at home as well. The most popular method is the application of castor oil bought at chemist’s. It costs us a penny and, it is generally believed that castor oil works. Some women claim that they noticed desired effects due to the castor oil treatment, other said that castor oil causes nothing more than irritations and eyelash and hair (while added to the hair mash) loss. Another drawback of castor oil is the consistency of the cosmetic which is quite an issue in here. The oil can get into eyes easily and cause not only itching but also redness.
Talking about eyelash lengthening, we cannot forget about argan oil. Definitely, it is widely-used cosmetic when it comes to hair care routine. Argan oil has got shining, moisturizing and nourishing effects, and in an opinion of some people, this oil has the ability of lengthening eyelashes, as well. Probably, this can be true, nevertheless, it is extremely important to buy original argan oil, not the cheaper substitute. Unfortunately, neither the cost of the argan oil is low nor the effects are achieved promptly.
Yet another household method of eyelash lengthening is the application of the eyelash conditioners. Usually, this kind of cosmetics work after several weeks since the first application, and are comprised of natural substances. What is more, in most cases, these are sold with the precise applicator which is often in a shape of a brush. This kind of a conditioner is above-mentioned Nanolash, which in a short period of time, makes the eyelashes longer, producing, at the same time, long-lasting effects.
Obviously, we can create a mini-beauty salon at our home and play with eyelash lengthening treatment. If you have the appropriate knowledge and the experience, performance of this kind of treatment will came easily to you. On the other hand, when you are lacking of those basic abilities you can simply harm yourself. Certainly, we can attach false eyelashes, no matter, whether it will be party eyelashes or strip eyelashes, at home. The remaining issues are firstly, to select and buy the materials which are of the highest quality and secondly, our manual abilities.
