We have been asking our customers to share their best advice on the best way to stretch your ears. If you are just starting to stretch your ears, please read some of our customer's advice below. If you still want to give your best advice, please comment below.
Take it Slow
By far the number one piece of advice from our customer is to take your time. It takes time to stretch your ears. Do not rush the process or you may regret it. If you stretch your ears too fast your ears will start to develop micro tears. These tears may continue to grow and cause either a blowout or some other damage to your ear. If this happens it will set you back even more time. It could also stop you from stretching completely.
Do not skip a Size
You might think that if you skip a gauge then you will stretch your ears that much faster. This goes back to taking your time. Skipping a step will increase those chances of micro tears in your ears. Do not skip a size.
Stretch after a Hot Shower
Stretching your ears is much easier after a hot shower. First, clean your ears during the shower to get rid of any unwanted bacteria. After the shower massage your ears. The hot shower and massage allows your ears to be more flexible and will be less painful putting in your plugs. Customers also recommend using a natural oil or lubrication to help get your plugs in your ears.
Do not use Silicon
When stretching, our customers all seem to say to stay away from acrylic and silicone. Silicone is likely to cause micro tears that will damage the ear as time goes on. Porous material (even organic) will trap bacteria and will be more prone to infection. Our customers favorite material to stretch with is stainless steel.
