Despite my best efforts, today I write with much less enthusiasm and I am sure this will show through my choice of words. With most things in life, we must take the good with the bad and make our best efforts to turn those lemons into lemonade. For those wondering why a 27-year-old woman would have a sulk, it is because I have come to realize that I have lost my sense of direction lately and have side tracked from what is important to me.
I have gone back into my old routine and once again, have become comfortable and ceased to grow. My dear Husband has ever so kindly reminded me of my lack of commitment and due to his dedication of highlighting this point over the last 14 days, I have realized that his pestering may have been the ugly truth. Now how could I possibly turn this sourly mess into a sugary concoction? Well, I think the answer is quite simple… write a blog of course.
So today, I would like to briefly highlight the three golden rules of lashing.
ISOLATION, APPLICATION & MAINTANENCE
Say it, breathe it and live it my friend… Back in the early days when this old bird still had her feathers, it was a common belief that the idea of bunching was normal and acceptable. In addition to that, you were to not touch your lashes or get them wet. EVER. And very much like the predecessors before me, this idea has much gone with the wind. Today, it is a proven fact that we must wash & brush to ensure optimal hygiene. To minimize the possibility of putting you to sleep, I have gone into detail about each rule in point forms.
This first step here will determine whether you come back for your infills with or without your NL (natural lash). As each of your NL is at a different growth cycle, to bind two together will ultimately result in one giving way due the difference in growth rate. It is crucial that only one EE or EE fan is placed on one NL at any given time. Nothing more, nothing less. The process of isolation can be quite time consuming for individuals with multiple lash layers.
Now most people will think that this part comes down to tweezer skills and as much as this may seem to be correct, I would like to stress that this is actually inaccurate. THE SUCCESS OF THE TECHNICIAN’S APPLICATION COMES DOWN TO HER SKILL IN MAINTAINING A CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT SUITABLE TO HER GLUE. Essentially, this means that the humidity and temperature of the room must be within the recommended range for the concentration of the cyanoacrylate in the glue to bind securely (yes, mind blown). This basically means that even if the stroking and attachment is done right but the working environment is not, your EE will inevitably shed with in the first week.
Please excuse my demeanor in this paragraph, as this is something that I clearly have an issue with and due to my inability to stop myself from speaking my mind, I will lay it out for you and the repeat offenders.
1) DO NOT TOUCH
2) DO NOT PULL
3) DO NOT WEAR MASCARA
4) DO NOT PUT EXCESS FORCE ON YOUR BABIES. THEY COST A LOT OF MONEY!
5) WASH & BRUSH
It is evident that many clients are quick to blame their technician when their EE shed quicker than anticipated and I am sure I am not the only tech out there that share this frustration towards clients who play the blame game due to their lack of knowledge. On average, a person will toss and turn 13 times in their sleep. Your body will automatically do this to prevent your muscles from becoming stiff. It is almost impossible to sleep for 8 hours on your back so there is a high chance your unknown sleeping habits are contributing to the premature shedding. Lifestyle, environmental and biological factors should not also be forgotten. E.g. – Hormones, skin type, stress levels, weather, physical activities, etc. Very much like a pair of red bottoms, the soles of the heels will eventually be worn out. At what speed will be determined on how yo a** walks in them.
