Firstly we strongly advise you have a patch test for the bonder. The bonder is basically the glue that is used to attach the extension lashes to your natural lash. Some people are allergic to it. All bonders have more or less the same ingredients, so if you’ve tried lash extensions before and found that you were allergic, then sadly our bonder isn’t going to be any different. Some salons offer sensitive bonders. Here at WINK we haven’t found any sensitive bonders that we feel give us a good enough retention, but we will keep looking!
Sensitive bonders still have the same single ingredient that causes the sensitivity, just at a much lower level and that’s the stuff that makes the lashes stick. Even though the bonder doesn’t actually touch your eyelid, once on the lash the bonder travels up into the folic and enters the body that way. A reaction can also develop later on, it is not common, but it can happen. In some cases it happens after a client has been having lash extensions for many months or even years. On the contrary we have have clients wearing our lashes and have done so for years who still have healthy strong lashes and have had no issues what so ever.
If you are an eye rubber, or face down sleeper, and I mean face plant sleeper, then extensions may not be for you either. If you like to wear dramatic make up, you can still have lash extensions, but you may find you need infills more frequently as the ingredients of the make up can lift the lashes. Contact wearers are absolutely fine to have lashes.
