Semi Permanent Lash Extensions

So I recently attended a Lash extension course by Olawunmi Certfied Master Lash/Brow specialist ( and anytime I tell people about lash extensions I can see a bewildered look on their faces because of what we know as individual lash fixing in Nigeria.
This is because of the way clustered lashes are fixed in Nigeria a lot of women (myself included) are not fans. Let me not even go to the hair bonding glue section….

Imagine doing away with the eyelash curlers, the mascara wand, the smudges, clumps and streaks and the struggle to remove it all a few hours later. This treatment  can give you the freedom to swim, workout, shed a tear (without your tears turning black lol) and still have beautiful, thick lashes.

Semi permanent eyelash extensions are individual strands of lash-like hair made from synthetic material, silk or even mink. A salon technician will apply adhesive to each extension and attach it to one of your natural eyelashes. Extensions are flexible, so they look natural, but they are strong enough to hold their shape and last as long as the eyelash stays in the lid. 

The training was for two days and i enjoyed every bit of it (Thanks to our Lash Mama)

The first day we were introduced to our kits and worked on mannequin heads

The next day we got to work on real people, the best part was we worked on each other (big smiles).

The great part about fixing this extensions is that the client gets to lie down, relax with eyes closed and most times sleep off. It was a very nice experience. absolutely no pain or watering of the eyes. 

Thats me! getting ready for my treatment

Semi permanent eyelash extensions Life Cycle
Eyelashes have a natural life cycle of 3 to 6 weeks. They fall out and grow back again. Because of this, your eyelash extensions will only last as long as each lash’s life cycle. If you intend to keep the extensions in for a long period of time, you will have to go back to the salon for touch ups. The technician will attach new extensions to the new growth so that your lashes don’t have patchy gaps in them. If you have had the extensions put in for a special event like a wedding or holiday abroad, you can have them removed after a few weeks.

Semi permanent eyelash extensions are easy to look after. You should not use any oil-based make up remover or creams on them, as these can make the adhesive loosen and the extensions will fall off. Rubbing your eyes is a no-no, as the extensions can loosen and fall off or break. Other than those precautions, your extensions are care-free.

The beauty of semi permanent eyelash extensions is that they feel like your natural eyelashes. They are so light you won’t even feel them on your eyelid, and because they look natural, no-one will notice they aren’t real.
As the saying goes, your eyes are the window to your soul. Frame them with thick, long and full lashes for big, beautiful eyes that everyone will notice, with semi permanent eyelash extensions.
