1. Allergic reactions to eyelash extensions

For starters, allergic reactions are serious risks that can ruin your lush eyelash look. Researchers say formaldehyde-based adhesives can be a source of allergic reactions from applying eyelash extensions.

Doctors say the adhesives can cause allergic reactions, as can the solvents used to remove them. In addition, cosmetic eyelash enhancers carry a risk of bacterial and fungal infection (Orly Avitzur et al., 2020).

2. Eye Infections

Likewise, eye infections are another serious risk of applying these extensions. I guarantee no girl wants an eye infection that could make her lose sight — while enhancing her beauty.

Doctors report that eyelash extensions can cause irritation to the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis) or cornea (keratitis). Direct contact from the lashes themselves or hypersensitivity to the substances used to attach can cause the irritation (Orly Avitzur et al., 2020).

3. Removal of natural lashes

Eyelash extentions have the potential risk of removing your natural lashes. Wild, right? Read on.

The College of Optometrists in England has warned that “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. As a result, this can damage the hair follicle, which can slow down and even cease production of hair.” (Orly Avitzur et al., 2020).

Super Awesome Side Note: It is important to do further research before applying these extensions. We at awayion.com do not forbid you from purchasing eyelash extensions. The purpose of this article is educational only.
