Eyelash extensions for trich?

Hi guys!!

I am new to this forum so bear with me. I have had trich for 4+ years now and have found nothing that helps me stop. I have yet to try therapy/counseling but I do not have a great insurance plan right now so I can't afford continuous counseling sessions. I was wondering if anyone has tried and/or had good luck with professional eyelash extensions? My only concern is I have very few lashes and I'm pretty sure they adhere the fakes to the actual lashes. I wear cheap fake lashes occasionally but I really like the idea of how low maintenance professional lashes would be. Looking for a friend!!

Hey. I tried this. I highly recommend you not get eyelash extensions. If you are still actively pulling you will only pull these out I assure you. They make you want to pull more because you can feel something on your eyes. They consequences are also a lot worse. I had mine on for a day and was desperately trying to get them off with coconut oil because all I wanted to do was pull. Get some eyelash serum rapidlash and revitalash are amazing for helping them grow. Give yourself a goal and treat yourself extensions say.. once you haven't pulled for 2 months say. Big hug to you x

Hi. I also have looked into this. They do attach fake eyelashes to your original lashes. You would need a decent amount of lashes for them to attach the fake ones to. As someone else also said you will probably end up pulling these ones out too. I know I would want to.

I have been picking my eyelashes and eyebrows for as long as I can remember. What really helped me are false lashes that you glue to the base of your lids. I find when I have them on I do not pick my lashes. I am convinced it has to do with the weight of the false lashes on my eyes and it triggers my brain to not go there. Just wanted to make the suggestion! I know its a pain to apply but I also have figured out a way to sleep and wear the false lashes for 3 - 4 days. Best of luck and you can stop!!! I know its hard but you can do it.

Hi Jaclyn- how do you get them to stay on for 3-4 days? What glue do you use? I have tried several different glues, including “waterproof” glues and ghost bond, but I find that there is still lifting and I need to remove and reapply every 1-2 days.

Hey guys.
I just wanted to share something with you that has currently been working for me for 2 weeks now and I haven't picked once!!!!
it is called a KEEN by HABITAWARE.
I stumbled across it whilst googling is quite pricey but for me it has been so worth it. I'm not an ambassador for them or anything lol, literally giving my honest opinion and hope it might help others struggling.

If you are in the UK, I send the owner a message and she has a friend in the UK who sent it on to me...therefore you don't get charged custom fees etc.

If any one gets it let me know how you get on :)

hi gratia
There is a glue called ‘duo glue’ it helps my fake eyelashes stay on for weeks u may need to replace them I would recommend penny’s false individual lashes and then a natural pair of kiss lashes placed above for a very nice lash look and natural stays on for ages

Yes, I have been through this situation. I used mascara a lot. After a long time, my eyelids started drooping and dark circles formed under my eyes. For dark circles, I use potatoes and cold milk. my friend advised me to use Careprost for eyelashes. I use it. My eyes really look very beautiful right now.
