In the life of every woman, sooner or later, there comes a moment when she decides to give up eye makeup at least for a while. However, this does not mean at all that the charming lady ceases to take care of herself. In most cases, a decision is made either about a permanent or a permanent make-up.
Because lash shaping is one of the key aspects of makeup, there are many long lasting design services available to color, revitalize, curl, lengthen and thicken lashes.
Botox occupies a special place among the popular restorative procedures, during which the natural bristles are treated with a complex of vitamins and slightly stained.
With the problem of straight-growing cilia and a lowered look, lamination perfectly fights. Thanks to this service, you can create a beautiful curl with a velvety shine and enhanced elasticity.
If the natural curve and length of natural eyelashes fully correspond to your preferences, you can perform permanent hair coloring, which will save you from the need to use mascara every day.
When you are determined to make a big change, we recommend you try eyelash extensions. The procedure gives complete freedom of volume, length, shade and shape. You are not limited in the choice of bending and effects, and the result of the procedure will remain satisfactory for up to one month.
Moreover, the synthetic materials used for the production of eyelash hairs are hypoallergenic and will suit the vast majority of clients.
Read more about how and what eyelash extensions are made of, we will tell in our article.
How lash extensions became a trend
Fashion for artificial eyelashes came to us from distant Japan. The beam extension technology became known at the beginning of the twenty-first century, and the eyelash fixation method was invented in 2003.
It should be noted that the synthetic hairs were very similar in anatomical form to the real ones: thicker at the base and thinner closer to the tip.
Hollywood actresses instantly jumped on this trend, making makeup with lush curled eyelashes their prerogative. The fashion for extended bristles did not go beyond the stage for a long time, until eventually it became mainstream.
How is the production of synthetic eyelashes for extension in 2022 in the factory
Many of you will think that all stages of mass production are automated. However, the entire process is done by hand and requires a certain level of skill.
Let’s look at the stages of creating hairs in more detail.
- It all starts with the formation of bristles from a predominantly black synthetic mass. It should be noted that the thickness of the hairs at this stage is more important than the length, and varies in the range from 0.03 mm to 0.3 mm).
- The formed “threads” are fixed on a strip pre-treated with glue. Then take scissors and cut the material to the desired length.
- To give the hairs a certain bend, rollers of different diameters are used, to which the bristles are wound.
- When the necessary parameters are set, the cilia are sent to the furnace and remain hardened at a high temperature.
- After a few hours, the hairs are removed, allowed to cool completely, and then put back into the oven for hardening. Treated in this way, eyelashes can last for several years.
- After heat treatment, the stage of formation of substrates begins. To do this, the finished eyelashes are fixed on an adhesive tape, which is divided into parts and packaged in palettes.
The handmade fact is confirmed by the slightly uneven attachment of the eyelashes to the substrate. Most likely, finger pressure of different strengths was used for fixation.
However, if light fastening waves are still acceptable, then there should be no compromise on the quality and parameters of the fibers. Do not use a set with chewed ends and an awkward shade. Moreover, make sure that the artificial hairs are elastic and can be easily removed from the substrate.
If all the cilia that have fallen in a human life are laid out in one line, then its length will be about 30 meters. The life span of one eyelash is 2.5-3 months.
Should I treat artificial eyelashes before extensions?
On this issue, our experts are unanimous: of course, yes.
- Firstly, you cannot control the hygiene standards in the eyelash factory. At best, they’ll just be a little dusty.
- Secondlypre-treatment will enhance the adhesive properties of the tape and extended bristles will last you longer.
In order to prepare the hairs for extensions, spread a little degreaser along the entire length of the bristles using a small brush.
In the absence of a professional formulation, spray your eyelashes with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
What materials are used in the production of eyelash extensions 2022
Synthetic monofilaments can be divided into several subspecies.
Manufacture of polished acrylic eyelash extensions
Eyelashes made of such material are inelastic, have an unnatural reflection, standard bend and thickness. They were used when the extension technology was in its infancy. Now polished acrylic hairs are considered mauvais ton.
Polybutylene terephthalate artificial eyelashes
The PBT fiber is highly elastic, which means that the engineering plastic eyelashes can be shaped into any shape under the influence of high temperatures.
The resulting hairs are lighter than natural ones, therefore they do not provoke premature loss, and are also hypoallergenic, which makes them suitable for many girls.
Polyester for the production of artificial eyelashes is the most popular in 2022
The material does not cause skin irritation, is moisture resistant, does not fade in direct sunlight and has high plasticity. Polyester eyelashes are light and durable, do not weigh down the eyelid. In addition, they are matte, which brings them as close as possible to natural.
Production of eyelash extensions from silicone – an innovation in the market 2022
Innovation in the cosmetics market. The material has established itself as plastic, resistant to mechanical damage, capable of providing long-term wear.
Silicone fiber has a pleasant sheen, which gives the cilia a healthy look. However, these lashes are heavy and even slightly rough, so use them in extensions with extreme caution and only if your natural hairs are strong enough.
We recommend purchasing palettes only in specialized institutions, as well as checking quality certificates to protect clients from allergies.
