Your choice: false lashes vs. Natural lashes

By Jessy Watson

The main task of natural eyelashes is to protect eyes from harmful external factors. They have to prevent toxins from getting into the eye. However, for most of us, aesthetic features are of much bigger importance. This is why we look for original and sometimes even crazy ideas to improve their condition. Are false lashes really a must?

Absolutely not!

Before you decide to get eyelash extensions or apply false lashes, you must know some facts about it. Sometimes, after a moment of reflection, we come to the conclusion that what seems to be beneficial, does not work in our favour. This also concerns eyelash extensions. The first impression is always great. After a long visit at the beauty salon, we walk out of it with a set of new, long and thick false lashes. Unfortunately, there is also a dark side of the story. Your natural lashes are weakened, become brittle and start to fall out.

This is a brief description of what it all looks like. Making the decision whether to go for false lashes or choose natural eyelashes requires exploring the topic more carefully. Therefore, below we would like to present a comparison with advantages and disadvantages of both options.

False Lashes

How to obtain them?

Long and thick lashes can be obtained in various ways. The most inexpensive (and single use) option is to purchase strip lashes. Such false lashes are to be applied to your upper lashline as the last step in doing your make-up. In the evening, you simply peel it off when doing your regular make-up removal. More durable and more popular method are eyelash extensions. In this case, either individual eyelashes or cluster lashes (depending on the method) are adhered to single natural eyelashes. The effects of semi permanent eyelashes last longer.


Artificiality does not always have good connotations. In most cases, what is natural is a hundred times better. Nevertheless, false lashes also have some advantages. There are two, but crucial ones, because for many people, saving time and the ability to choose is extremely important.

  • first of all, we can choose from a wide variety of types, lengths, thickness and colours. You can mix and match them to obtain the most suitable effects that will fulfil your needs. If you are lucky enough to schedule an appointment with an experience beautician, she will adjust the type of lashes to the shape and colour of your eyes and to the oval of your face. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find a qualified lash extension artist.
  • secondly, false lashes are obtained almost immediately. There is no need to wait long for the effects. Of course, despite the time you must devote for the procedure. Lash extensions or applying strip lashes guarantees that you will be able to enjoy long, thick and shiny lashes the same day. It is a pity that those are not your natural lashes but only their artificial version.


Unfortunately, it turns out that false lashes have more disadvantages than advantages. No wonder. If you only cover up the problem of short lashes with a synthetic camouflage, instead of regenerating and strengthening, you cannot expect tremendous effects. Lash extensions can bring more harm than good.

  • first of all, your eye area can easily get irritated after using adhesives or fibres – or even worse – materials of animal origin (for example mink fur false lashes).
  • secondly, false lashes significantly weaken natural lashes. We are not talking only about excessive loss due to allergic reaction. Overburdening them with heavy false lashes made of artificial fibres and, at the same time, blocking oxygen access to the skin causes fragility and lash loss. This means that they are exposed to mechanical damages as well.
  • thirdly, wearing false lashes does not provide natural look, on the contrary, sometimes it can even look caricatural. Especially when false lashes start falling off and you can see bald spaces. Your lashline is no longer perfect.


It is an undeniable truth that natural lashes have only advantages. They are healthy, beautiful, shiny and resilient. They are much better than false lashes. You can enumerate only one small disadvantage; they require regular care. Let’s concentrate on their care discussing its advantages and disadvantages.

How to obtain them?

The method for naturally beautiful eye frame is a lot easier than false lash application. One may think that eyelash extensions is a less problematic method for long lashes. They couldn’t be more wrong. All you need is an effective eyelash and eyebrow serum, such as Nanolash. Thanks to it, you can enjoy amazing lashes every day.

    I do not like the way eyelash extensions look, they seem very unnatural even if they aren’t that dramatic, individual or cluster lashes look better but still, I prefer getting a good eyelash serum and strengthen my natural lashes

  2. Mona says:

    after having eyelash extensions, my lashes got very weak, luckily I started using this serum and they got back to their good condition. I can recommend this product

  3. Amelia says:

    I have tried getting eyelash estensions a few times but it gave me allergies everytime , I think it was the adhesive

  4. Claude says:

    I was so annoying for me that after getting eyelash extensions I had to watch out for literally everything to protect the new lashes. I couldn’t even sleep comfortable. Yeah, it looks good but it is very impractical. I must finaly try out this serum

  5. Jules says:

    The best thing about this serum is that it doesn’t only increase the length but lashes are really stronger thanks to it. I can see a huge difference

  6. Adelle_26 says:

    Eyelash extensions are a good solution because you do not have to waste time on applying mascara every morning which may be problematic. However, for the mto look good, you must go back in for touch-ups every 3-4 weeks and have enough time and money

  7. Olivia says:

    I got allergic to eyelash extensions, I’m not sure what would it be like with the serum, I’m worried that it could give me allergies as well

    • Jasmine says:

      This serum is supposed to have a great compostion without any dangerous substances that may cause allergies. I use it myself and I love it and I am usually allergic to everythng

  8. Marissa says:

    I like exagerrated bold makeup so eyelash extensions are not a good idea because I wouldn’t be able to remove the cosmetics off my eyes correctly, However, I like applying false lashes for various occasions. On a daily basis, I strengthen my natural lashes with this serum and after appying a generous layer of mascara, I get the false lash look

  9. Camile1993 says:

    this serum is really amazing. It really made my lashes grow very long. I will buy it again

  10. mia_m says:

    it’s cool but a bit pricey

  11. Ginger says:

    Eyelash extensions can damage eyelashes only if the application isn’t done professionally

    • Natalie says:

      All eyelash extensions weakens natural lashes even if you have them done in the best salon. It all depends on the conditio of your natural lashes but all applications are harmful to them. Some people see it faster and others notice it after a while

  12. Grace22 says:

    I had this serum too and I must say that is really made my lashes longer and darker. Now, it is enough that I apply a thin coat of mascara and the effect is great

  13. Dominique says:

    I had eyelash extensions done only once and that’s all, I’ll never do it again because the price is so high and because my natural lashes got very weak ;/ Now, I am applying castor oil but I think I’ll thry this serum soon
