oil they catch and the more strain they put on your lashes and roots.

If you try to curl lash extensions, you might end up with an
unnatural shape that may not go away. If you do need to curl your lashes with a
curler, then do a very light pulse and not a big squeeze.

your lashes may end up damaging your natural lashes too.
extensions are worth the expense but you do need to take good care of them if
you want them to last a while.
In a nutshell, be gentle, read the labels and avoid
oil and moisture to make them last.
