Eyelash extensions

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a question about the adhesives for eyelash extensions. I’m talking the lash by lash extensions that are permanent and not the strips you glue to your eyes. Getting eyelash extensions has been a self-care thing for me and it’s cut down on my getting ready time in the morning. 

There is a lot of bad and misleading information out there, and I’ve heard that lash adhesives contain wheat. I know what brand my cosmetologist uses and I went to their website to check out the ingredients. I don’t see anything that blatantly says “wheat” and the ingredients are all names for different chemical compounds and adhesives, plus carbon black. 

Do these types of adhesives contain gluten? If so, will the name of the ingredient be obvious to me or can gluten exist in methacrylates, for example? 

Thanks!

I wish I could tell you but I do not know. I don't imagine it contains wheat and I would imagine any of that stuff would all be synthetic chemical compounds.

However, I have a question for you. Whattttttttt???? Eyeleash extensions that are lash by lash & permanent?????? How permanent? Applied by a cosmetologist? Apparently I am way behind the times. Please explain this to me. It sounds like something I would really love to have.

Well, they aren’t permanent. They’re semi-permanent and you have to have them done every couple weeks because they are glued to each lash and they fall off with your natural lashes. They take about an hour to do each time you have them filled, but your first appointment takes at least two hours. It’s really relaxing to do them and you don’t have to fuss with makeup as much because you always have big doe eyes! :) I like doing it. It’s my little self-care thing. And they’re done by a trained cosmetologist. I’m sure that there are lots of sketchy places you could avoid, but there are also a lot of really awesome lash artists out there and if they know what they’re doing the extensions will be beautiful and won’t  damage your natural lashes or your eyes!

If I got lash extensions - I wouldn't worry about gluten in the glue.  I imagine it is all chemicals that could be derived from anything but would not likely contain the gluten protein.  But it is on your eyelashes - you won't eat it.  If you did get an eyelash in your eye - the amount of the whole glue you ate would be sooooooo tiny.  Then if 1 ingredient was derived from gluten  - that would be an even tinier amount.
