Myths & Concerns

1. Eyelash Extensions would cause own lashes to fall.

We have a simple Carragheen Rule of Thumb: we have created a formula that allows us to make sure the weight of each strand of Eyelash Extension matches each strand of your own lash. Thanks to this, the extension does not add unnecessary weight to your own lashes.

Refrain from unnecessary touching and tugging. And remember, your lashes need breathing space too! Customers who do not re-fill their extensions tend to have healthier lashes than those who frequently re-fill. Changing a new set every 4-6 weeks without re-filling allows your own lashes to breathe. If re-filling is necessary, try keeping it to only one time on the second week after you have got your extensions.

2. Natural lashes that fall off will not grow back again.

Carragheen provides eyelash strengthening serum at the end of each Eyelash Extension that enhances your own lashes with protein and collagen. You can also get this serum for home maintenance. This will definitely strengthen your lashes while you still have Eyelash Extensions on.

3. Eyelash Extensions may cause infection.

Infection is mainly caused by bacteria. The simple precaution to take: keep your Eyelash Extension clean and do not wear a set of extensions for more than 4-6 weeks. This is also why our advice earlier, to change to a new set of extensions in 4-6 weeks time. It would allow us to thoroughly clean your eyelids of accumulated debris.

4. Maintenance is a hassle.

Unless re-filling is needed, you will not be troubled to come back in 2 weeks time to maintain the full look. Only gentle brushing of Eyelash Extension is required to keep it neat and in shape. And we give a complimentary brush for maintenance too!

5. How do I wash my face?

For easy and thorough cleaning, you may use disposable cotton pads. This way you can clean the pores better than splashing water on your face. Alternatively, you can purchase a facial mitten at our counter.

It also acts as a gentle scrubber.

Care Tips

Though eyelash extensions are easy to maintain, the first twenty-four hours are crucial for a strong bond.

Follow these simple guidelines to maintain a new look and lifespan of your extension.

First 24 hours;

  • Keep you lashes dry and refrain from touching them.
  • Do not expose to water or steam to allow the adhesive to bond fully.

At least for 48 hours;

  • Avoid swimming or going into places like the sauna room. (After which, you can enjoy these lashes with little need to adjust to your lifestyle.)

General care;

  • Avoid using oil-based product or mascara on the lashes.
  • Apply the mascara sparingly on the tip of the extended lashes. Gently remove the mascara using water based remover.
  • Do not use mechanical eyelash curler as it will break the adhesive bonding on the extensions.

Common activities or behaviors that may shorten eyelashes lifespan.

  • Constant application of heavy eye makeup may reduce the lifespan of your eyelash extension.
  • A competitive swimmer who is constantly in the chlorinated water may lose some lashes earlier than the average person as well as someone who gets very frequent facials (weekly) or goes into the steam room daily.
  • Tenancy of rubbing eye occasionally or aggressively.

Protective Coating is applied on your initial set which acts as a sealer on the adhesive creating a stronger bond to the natural lash. It can be applied one to two times per week on the lashes to extend the lasting power of eyelash extension. We especially recommend this product to those clients with oily skin.

We recommend getting a touch up of every two to four weeks to maintain the fullness of your eyelash extension.

As the natural lashes cycle complete, eyelash extension will shed with them. Do not try to remove eyelash extensions on your own as pulling the extensions will damage your natural lash. Eyelash extension can be professionally removed by a eyelash adhesive remover. The removal process normally takes approximately 30 minutes.

What Are Carragheen Lash Extensions?

These are semi-permanent eyelash extensions comprised of individual synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. Our lashes are thicker at the base and taper to a fine tip. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one extension at a time, for a natural, elegant look to lengthen and add fullness to the existing lashes. Carragheen’s eyelash extensions are done by trained lash artist. Self-application and application by untrained individuals is strongly discouraged.

What is Carragheen lash extensions made out of?

These are crafted from synthetic polyester and silk. Synthetic and Silk lashes respond better to wear and tear than other materials. In addition, synthetics have the least possible chance of allergic reactions with human skin. Testing has shown that there are higher percentages of people who will have adverse reactions to contact with lash extensions created from animal hairs such as mink.

What do they look like and how do they feel?

Each application is customized to suit the individual. We offer lengths ranging from 6mm to 14mm for different effects. Differing individual synthetic lash lengths are chosen to carefully replicate the shape and frame of a natural lash line. The thickness of the lashes applied is determined by the health and thickness of your natural lashes as well as personal preference. The overall effect is added curl, thickness and length, opening up the eye for added definition.

Natural lash extension is an exact replica of an eyelash; it weighs about as much as a natural lash: practically nothing. You will not feel the addition of the extensions to your lashes and they will not cause your natural lashes to fall out ahead of their natural cycle.

What are the benefits of wearing Lashes?

Most women choose lash extension to lengthen their natural lashes while others want their lashes to look fuller. A number of women with naturally light colored lashes choose extension to darken their existing lashes. Still others love the different, fun looks they can achieve with highlighting and layering. Extensions can create a younger & brighter appearance on many clients.

Several consumers who were contemplating having work done on their faces have informed us that they no longer feel the need as a result of wearing our extensions. Semi-permanent eyelash extensions create the appearance of a brighter, more open and rested eye, thereby creating a more youthful and rejuvenated look.

Above all the main advantage of extension is how much time you can save during your beauty regimen. Extensions allow you to spend less time with makeup; mascara is certainly no longer necessary. Because our lashes are slightly thicker at the base, they create the same effect as eyeliner so that step can be avoided as well.

Overall, extensions will give you the appearance of having put significant effort into your eye makeup when, in reality, you spent no time at all. No application of eye makeup and no need for removal at the end of the day. The added benefit is that they look beautiful morning and night, all day and every day.

Say goodbye to the application of mascara, stained tears and mascara smudged around the eyes. With eyelash extensions you can look and feel gorgeous from the moment you wake up until the moment you fall asleep with little effort.

How long do Carragheen eyelash extension Last?

When properly applied, an eyelash extension will remain in place until the natural lash on which it rests falls out. This can be as long as two months or more.

Natural eyelashes grow in and fall out in cycles (every 60 to 90 days). When a natural lash matures and falls out, a new lash has already been growing and quickly replaces it without us noticing the turnover.

This process is constant and at any given moment our many natural lashes are at different stages of maturity. Some are just growing in while others are ready to shed. People typically shed between 1 and 5 natural lashes each day depending on their individual growth cycles. On shorter natural lashes this growing and shedding cycle is virtually unnoticeable.

When eyelashes are extended, it will be more noticeable when these lashes shed because they are longer and darker than natural lashes. Please keep in mind this is a perfectly normal occurrence with or without extensions. Lash Stylists will apply extension primarily to those lashes that are in the middle of their maturation cycle to maximum the amount of time they will last, without jeopardizing the health of ‘baby lashes’

The extension will fall out with the natural lash it is attached to when it reaches the end of its growth cycle. A few extensions may shed within the first week because the attached natural lashes are at the end of their growth cycle. Most will remain in place for approximately one to two months.

With proper care and maintenance, touch ups are typically needed only once every 2 to 4 weeks to replace the lashes that have shed. Your Lash Stylist will add extensions to the newest mature natural lashes to maintain a full, lush appearance.

How long does the procedure take?

Depending on the expertise and experience of the Lash Stylist and the number of lashes being applied, it generally takes between 60 to 90 minutes to apply a full set of Lashes. Touch ups can be done in as little as 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the style and amount required to re-fill.

Can you describe the application process?

You will be comfortably reclined with your eyes closed while lashes are applied one at a time to your own natural eyelashes. There is no discomfort or pain involved in the procedure. In fact, most clients find it is so relaxing and comfortable that they fall asleep.
