Every woman wants to look beautiful and attractive. We always do something that will make us a better version of ourselves. All life we stick to effective diets and perform effective workouts, trying to lose those extra pounds. As for beauty, women go crazy, spending large sums on expensive procedures and cosmetic products. The latest trend is fake lashes. Yes, it's beautiful, but you should know that it's not entirely safe for you.

Well, let's understand what fake lashes are. There are several different types of fake eyelashes. Permanent eyelash extensions (eyelash transplantation) – this is a very expensive procedure that costs thousands of dollars. Semi-permanent lashes (eyelash extensions) – a professional master glues fake lashes on top of your actual lashes. You can wear them for 6-8 weeks. Temporary eyelashes – you can buy them in the store and glue on your own above your natural lash line.

Why can fake lashes do more harm than good? Women who want to become owners of puppet eyelashes should resort to the eyelash extension procedure. A professional master uses a special glue to make these fake eyelashes. The fact is, this “special glue” can cause some bad reactions, because it contains some toxic components. One of these common reactions is conjunctivitis. This bacterial infection occurs when someone touches your eyes with his bare hands. In addition, most eyelash masters do not wear gloves when applying the extensions due to glue.

The second common reaction is loss of eyelashes. Some experts believe that your natural lashes can fall out due to the constant weight of eyelash extensions. What’s more, after the procedure of eyelash extension, you are not allowed to swim or wash your face, or sweat or cry for 12 hours.

Every day you will have to brush your “fake eyelashes” in order to keep them straight after showering, awaking, etc. The average price of this procedure is $100. Just imagine, every 6-8 weeks you have to spend $100 (and more) on eyelash extension. Yes, it's beautiful, but is it worth it?

How can you lengthen your eyelashes naturally? The most important thing is that it is possible. There are some natural remedies that can help you make amazing eyelashes. One of the good ones is coconut oil. Just apply it with a clean mascara wand on your lashes. Other options: castor oil, olive oil, and aloe vera. You can use one of these remedies to your lashes before going to bed. Leave it overnight, and then in the morning you should rinse it with warm water. You should follow this procedure for 2-3 months to achieve better results.

Unfortunately, not all experts agree with the fact that fake lashes can be harmful to health. Disputes continue. Just remember that the reaction of your body speaks volumes.
