If you're rocking eyelash extensions, you should absolutely be sleeping on a Mulberry Park Silks pillowcase. Our pillowcases are made from 100 percent pure silk in super soft charmeuse weave. No matter your sleep style, your face will glide across the sleek surface with no tugging, pulling, or friction (side and stomach sleepers, we're looking at you!). Our silk pillowcases are made to pamper your lashes; stop them from breaking; and extend the time between pricey refills.
The Lowdown on Lash Extension
Ask any lash lover and they'll tell you: an eyelash extension is an investment of time and money. But the procedure keeps growing in popularity. In fact, the eyelash industry is estimated to reach more than $1.5 billion over the next several years. Once an indulgence reserved for models and movie stars, eyelash extensions have become an everyday accessory.
But beautiful lashes don't come cheap. Expect to pay around $300 for a lash extension session. You'll spend about two hours at the eyelash salon. During the lash appointment, a technician will use lash glue to carefully attach an extension to your natural lash very close to the lash line. You'll work with the lash artist of time how long and full you want your lashes to be so you can achieve your ideal look. Dedicated fans of lash extension say they can go nearly makeup free; they love the freedom of ditching their mascara and lash curler as well as the look of long, luxurious eyelashes.
The downside is the maintenance. Your lashes require filling every few weeks. It must be done at the salon by a lash technician. These touch up-visits cost $50 and up, depending on the thickness of your extensions.
Extending the Life of Your Eyelash Extensions
Eyelash extensions are a big initial investment and require pricey upkeep. The goal, then, is to make your lashes last as long as they possibly can. Of course, lash loss happens to all of us on a regular basis. Lash extensions will fall out when your natural eyelashes do.
You can, however, stop premature lash loss and breakage. Along with taking care while washing and avoiding oil-based makeup remover and products, you should swap your old cotton pillow case for a silk pillowcase from Mulberry Park Silks.
Along with being an absolute luxury, a silk pillowcase is exceptionally gentle on your hair, skin, and eyelashes—especially if you're a stomach sleeper. Even the softest cotton contains rough fibers that can potentially pull and tear at your lashes. This friction can leave you waking with a pillow full of stray lashes.
Silk, on the other hand, is nearly friction free. Your lashes glide across the surface, sweeping the silk with no trauma or damage. This is why many lash professionals recommend sleeping on a silk pillowcase to preserve lash extensions.
