Way Out False Lashes
Maybe it's me, maybe I'm crazy. Or perhaps I'm just extra sensitive to women and their persona; how they present themselves in public. Have you noticed lately, women of all ages walking around doing the most mundane things like grocery shopping and going to work, with 10 INCH FALSE EYELASHES? Okay I'm exaggerating about 10 inches, but that's how it appears. The thing that makes these lashes look totally ridiculous, is the fact that most of these women have on no other make up! If they had on some other make on, these lashes might not look so exaggerated and crazy. But they look like they have a shaggy rug extended from their eyelids! Carol Channing, Liza Minelli, Tammy Faye, these women accrued some fame and notoriety for their 10 inch lashes. In other words, they got paid for looking way over the top. They also wore a full face of makeup to go with the wind shield washer lashes.
And Lord knows, I hope years down the road, there's not some announcement about how using that lash glue causes some kind of eye problems, like blindness! This glue allows these lashes to stay on for up to a month! Kind of scary.
If any of these women are your sisters, friends, cousins, co-workers, neighbors, please pull their coat and let them know, they've missed the boat. Encourage them to go to qualified professionals like Khamit Kinks who has some sense of ethics and who will advise them on the appropriate length and thickness of lash, for not only their face, but their lifestyle.
I am the owner of Khamit Kinks Natural Hair Care Salon located in Brooklyn, NY. Working in natural hair has been an amazing journey that has lead me to interests in other things natural that promote both health and beauty.
I especially enjoy helping women feel and look beautiful. Consequently, I have always had an interest in health. I am not a professional health provider or doctor. I have just always believed in the incredible power that we all possess to influence our own health and well being. We're all aware that true beauty comes from within and I believe that on some level health and beauty are inextricably connected.
I have studied Chinese Medicine and I am a certified Hatha Yoga instructor. I make an effort to do my daily practices of yoga, aerobics, meditation. Some times it's easy and other times it's a challenge.
I love my sisters, my sister friends and I appreciate sisterhood. Women inspire me. My mission is to continue to inspire them and give them the best of what the universe has given me.
