Volume extensions are fans made up of finer eyelashes which makes them more vulnerable when they come in contact with moisture. When they are exposed to moisture, the fans will close up giving your eyes a wet look. In order to prevent this from happening, please be mindful when you are applying makeup, moisturiser and sunscreen near the eyes.
At the beginning of the day and at the end of the day, wash your volume extensions with our foam cleanser, made specifically to remove makeup and excess moisture from the extensions. When you are using the foam cleanser be sure to rub it thoroughly with the brush provided in the brush cleansing kit. Work the brush as close to your eyelids as possible. Rinse with water and blow dry your extensions on low heat. After completing these steps correctly, you will have your fluffy volume extensions back to normal.

Sparse bottom lashes won’t look as natural once the eyelash extensions are applied and can be known to look “gappy” as they fall out a bit quicker, as opposed to those who have a fuller amount of natural hairs to work with.
Do Holy Lashes do permanent eyelash extensions?
There are always confusion when this question is asked. Yes, Holy Lashes do permanent eyelashes extension but the extension is only semi-permanent due to everyone’s natural eyelashes having a cycle of between 60-90 days. The eyelash extension will stay on until our natural hairs fall out, bringing the eyelash extension along with it.
What is the natural lashes cycle?
Our eyelashes are one of the most loved desired features of our face, so when we see one or two lashes fall out on our cheek it can be little unsettling. But it is important to understand that it is perfectly normal for eyelash hairs to shed, just like any other hair on our body. Eyelashes go through a natural growth cycle and replace themselves during a period of between 90 to 120 days, these hairs go through a 3 stage growth cycle and eventually will fall our so a new one can grow. One thing to keep in mind, in our bundle of lovely eyelashes we have a mixture of all three stages happening at one time and we refer to these as the ‘baby lashes, medium grown lashes and adult lashes’ for simpler understanding terms.
Phase One – The Anagen Phase (Baby Lashes)
Also know as the ‘growth’ stage, this is generally where the lashes are actively growing and last between 30 to 45 days. This the time period where lashes grow out to various lengths based on individual genetics.
Phase Two – The Catagen Phase (Medium Lashes)
This is know as the ‘testing’ stage where the eyelash hairs have stopped growing and have reached its desired length and is now settling to being a prefect gorgeous eyelash. During this phase, the hair follicle slowly starts to shrink towards the surface of the skin. This phase generally last between 14 to 21 days.
Phase Three – The Telogen Phase (Adult Lashes)
Now is the ‘shedding’ phase. This is generally where the eyelashe hair lives the longest, lasting up to 90 to 120 days before it naturrally fall out. During this period, a new hair will grown from the follicle underneath and naturally push out the existing when the time comes.
Yes, eyelashes will always grow back as long as there is no permanent damage to the follicle. Keep in mind that depending where the lash is in the cycle, it can take up two months for a lash to re-grow. Also note, that when a clump has been plucked out (or badly damaged especially from bad application of eyelash extensions) each hair will take a different amount of time to grow back. Damaged hair follicles may result in permanent loss of eyelash hair growth.
How do I know when my lashes is done correctly?

Can I apply eyelash extensions to my own eyelashes?
We highly recommend that you visit a professional if you want eyelashes extension applied. The procedure can be poorly resulted in having a bad set of eyelash extensions when they are incorrectly applied. The eyelash extension glue is fast dry and can damage the eye area and skin severely if used incorrectly. Also, tools such as the sharply pointed tweezers can have a safety threat when used around the eye area, incoordination control may lead to these tools being harmful to the eye if you have injured yourself by accidental stabbing. However we can recommend if you want to put lashes on yourself you should try clusters, you can attach them using temporary non-permanent eyelash glue and they can be removed at the end of the night. They are more durable, application-safe and temporary for a one-off use.
What are Clusters? And how are they different to individual eyelash extensions?
Cluster lashes are clumps of false eyelashes bound together in a “v” shape. Clusters come in various densities as well as lengths and are much easier to apply successfully than individual lash extensions. Additionally, since cluster lashes apply several eyelash extensions at one time, application time is shorter than individual lashes. An experienced professional can apply cluster in about 15 to 20 minutes but the cluster eyelash extensions can also be easily applied at home. Clusters are for more of a temporary use and are not as permanent as individual eyelash extensions.
Are the eyelash extensions applied to my eyelid?
No, eyelash extensions are never applied to the skin on the eyelid and we are very careful to attach them 1mm off the skin to avoid any skin/eye irritation that may occur.
