Nakawo Ltd T/A C-Lash

C-Lash was created to provide false eyelashes to people who have lost their own lashes due to cancer treatment and Alopecia. Normal false eyelashes currently on the market attach to and/or rest your own existing eyelashes. This means that for people who actually need false eyelashes, they are very difficult to use.
