Why eyelash extensions are ruining your lashes and your bank account

Eyelash extensions have been one of the biggest growth areas in the beauty market over the past decade, attributed to ‘quick-fix’ glamour, and an obsession with celebrity style. Women are looking to their favourite celebs for beauty inspiration – but what effect do the fabulous falsies have on natural lashes (and bank accounts)?

Medical experts have warned that the adhesives used for the applications of eyelash extensions can carry risk of infection, allergic reaction and even cause permanent damage to lash follicles. The UK's College of Optometrists in England warned that the procedure can even cause permanent loss of eyelashes. 'Repeated use of eyelash extensions can cause traction alopecia, a condition where the hair falls out due to excessive tension placed on the hair shaft,' a press release stated. As a result, this can damage the hair follicle, which can slow down and even cease production of hair.'

Not only this, lash extensions come with quite the price tag. With an average of £45.00 per application and £20.00 for infills every 2 weeks, the costs really starts to build up. Over the course of 3 months, lash extensions can set you down a whopping £125.00 - that's £46.00 more expensive than Eyelash Logic's 3 month supply!

Christopher Stephen, Director here at Eyelash Logic, said, “Eyelash Logic is different to lash extensions - it makes your natural lashes grow longer and thicker, meaning you have less reason to wear false lashes at all”.
