What is a Lash Extension?

A Lash Extension is a single fiber that is applied on ONE of your natural lashes.  This process of one-to-one application is repeated 100-300 times PER eye (depending on the client's natural lashes), until a longer, thicker, fuller look is achieved.  This process requires exact technique and does not harm your natural lashes.

These ARE Lash Extensions: Single fibers.

These are NOT Lash Extensions.  

So, Why does it matter?

Lash Extensions:

  • Do Not Harm your natural lashes when applied correctly
  • Should be applied by a skilled, certified lash artist.
  • Usually cost more than "individuals," "flares," or "strips," but that's because it takes time and skill to apply them.  
Know the Facts and make informed decisions about your lashes!  You deserve only the BEST for your eyes.

Grow Your Lashes Without Side Effects

1. Nourish your body with Biotin.  Take it with your "fattiest" meal of the day, as it helps you metabolize fat and use it to nourish your lashes (and hair & skin).  

2. Use a SAFE, Natural, Lash Growth Serum.  I recommend Lipocils Expert.  And when say "recommend," I mean that I wouldn't use anything BUT Lipocils Expert :)  It will NOT change your eye color like that "other lash growth product on the market."  (Starts with an "L" and ends with "atisee.")

Clean Lash Conditioning Pads
3. With your lash extensions, you should absolutely be using the NovaLash Pomegranate Oil Clean Lash Conditioning and Make-up Remover Pads.  These pads provide your lashes with necessary oil to keep them soft and supple (vs. dry and brittle).  Clients who use the pads have better lashes--hands down.

*I will have my PhD in the next year, but I'm not a (medical) doctor.  Of course, ask yours before you take my suggestions.

Are Side Sleeper? That's a Lash No-No!

Side-Sleepers BEWARE!  Sleeping on your side not only damages your lash extensions, but it can also give you wrinkles.

Ladies, the difference between NovaLash Lash Extensions and the other options are the market should be clear! Here are the facts:

  1. NovaLash's Platinum Bond adhesive is medical grade, manufactured in the U.S.A. and does not contain latex or formaldehyde.  It is safe and strong! 
  2. NovaLash Lash Extensions are applied one-by-one.  Which means that each one of your natural eyelashes is extended with a single lash extension, giving your somewhere between 100-300 individual Lash Extensions. This technique does not harm your natural eyelashes.
  3. Lash Artist experience matters!  Many clients comment about how easy it looks to apply lash extensions.  I'm not just saying this...It's NOT EASY!  In fact, anyone who wants to try it, should ask me (or your NovaLash artist) if you can try to apply a lash or two.  Improper techniques can cause damage.  Don't compromise your eyes!  I am an ADVANCED CERTIFIED NOVALASH Lash Artist.  You're in good hands. 
  4. NovaLash is the #1 Lash Extension Brand on the Market.  It is a celebrity choice lash extension, as well as the choice of hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

More on Biotin for Lashes

Since I blogged about Biotin (SEE BLOG Post), I've had lots of questions about it.  I wanted to address a few of those questions here.  
First, I let me establish: I AM NOT A MEDICAL DOCTOR and you should consult your physician before taking my suggestions about biotin or any supplement.  

Now to the information about Biotin...

  1. Biotin is an essential nutrient for the growth and health of your lashes and is also known as Vitamin H. It is found in many hair, skin, and nail vitamins, such as Nioxin. 
  2. How much to take?  Many experts suggest around starting out at 2mg per day and increasing if necessary.  I take 5mg per day. I have found that the 5mg daily dose works well for me.  FYI: Biotin has no known toxicity.  But don't get crazy ;)
  3. Take it with your "fattiest" meal of the day, as biotin helps mobilize the fat in your food and use it effectively to nourish your lashes, etc. 
  4. Where can you buy it?  Biotin can be purchased at any drug store and most grocery stores.  Check near the vitamins.  As for the suggested brand--that's up to you.  
Combine Biotin use with Lipocils Expert and you're well on your way to the best lashes of your life!
