One of the best ways to ensure that your eyelash extensions last is by hiring a professional. Many people take the do it yourself route, only to realize that they have a weak adhesive, no formal training in eyelash extensions, as well as improper technique. If you consult with a qualified eyelash extension professional, you will ensure that a very strong adhesive is used and that they are installed properly. Therefore, if you want your eyelash extensions to last longer, it is highly recommended that you consult with an eyelash professional who specializes in this.
What to Avoid
If your Eyelash Extensions are Too Long, then they can become heavy for your natural lashes and tend to fall out quicker. There are some self-care techniques you can use to make your lashes last as long as possible. Adhesive responds very poorly to heat and humidity. Therefore, you should ideally avoid hot steam as much as possible. The steam loosens the grip that the eyelashes have on your lash line. You should also try to avoid excess water to the eye region, as well. Other important tips include not tugging at the false lashes, as well as apply mascara only modestly, if at all. If you apply excessive mascara to the area, you may run the risk of removing your newly installed lashes. It should be noted that within 24 hours of having your lashes installed, you should avoid water in the eye region at all costs.
Different Types of Eyelashes
Different types of lashes last for varying durations of time. For example, on the market, you will note that there are strip lashes, individual lashes, cluster lashes, as well as permanent lashes and semi-permanent lashes. If you want to solve the problem altogether, simply go for the permanent lashes. This alternative does not require repeated installations of lashes. Instead, you will have beautiful, luxurious and long lashes for the rest of your life. However, this will require the occasional trimming. If you are wondering how eyelash transplants are performed, it is a very specific process. Essentially, a skin graft is taken from the neck area, placed onto the lash line area, and then the hair is grown in that region.
Permanent lashes are an incredibly costly alternative that the average person cannot afford. However, if you would like to have long lasting lashes, the next best alternative is semi-permanent lashes, which can last for up to two months. This is also a very expensive option, but not as costly as permanent lashes.
If you apply these yourself, Individual lashes, cluster lashes and strip lashes last for up to two weeks, and possibly more in some cases but mostly they may only last for a few days. If you use a strong adhesive, you might be able to make them last even longer. However, suppose you had these professionally applied. If this were the case, they would probably last up to four weeks.
If you are serious about making your eyelash extensions last, consider getting touch ups for the duration of the time that they are in. Touch ups allow you to keep in the majority of your lashes, and supplement the ones you have lost, without repeating the entire installation process again.

Of course, there will come a time in which you will have to remove your lashes. It is very critical that you do this with the proper instruction to prevent damage to your lashes, or an infection in the lash area. One method simply involves the use of steam and oil. The first step of this process entails removing your makeup from your eye region. Then, simply steam the eye area with a boiling pot or bowl of water, and do this for about ten minutes, until the adhesive begins to loosen up. After this, take a cotton swab with oil, and simply wipe the area. Remove all excess lashes.
Another popular method is to use simply a solvent that remove the glue. And of course, you have the alternative of consulting with a professional, as well.
