Double Flare Plugs
The double flare plug will have a flare on both sides of the plug. The middle will be the size your ear is currently stretched at. There will be a 2mm flare that will go out at the ends. The flare will be used to help hold your plugs in place on both the inner and outer parts of your ear.
When to use a Double Flare Plug
Double flare plugs should not be used for stretching your ears. Double flare plugs are meant for ears that have been at the same size for at least 3weeks. You want to make sure that your ears are fully healed from the last stretch. After 3 weeks your ears will have a little more elasticity. This will make it easier to get the double flare plugs into your ears. You never want to force double flares in, too much pressure could end up potentially tearing your skin, and or cause a blowout. If your ears aren't ready yet that's okay! Give your ears some time to rest. If your ears are not ready you can try out different single flare plugs or heavier plugs, like hematite.
How do you get Double flares in your stretched ear?
The first time you try to get a double flare plug in your ear you will want to take a hot shower. This will allow your ears to have my elasticity, and it will be easier to get the double flare into your ears. Next use a natural oil like jojoba oil. You can put the oil either in your ear or the plug itself.
There are a few different methods to get double flare plugs into your ears. We have found the easiest method is known as the button method. It's a simple technique. Start out by putting the bottom of the plug inside your ear. The ear should be on the inside of the plug (not the flare). Next, pull down and pop the top of the plug into your ear just like a button.
There should be little to no pain associated while putting in your double flare plugs. If you experience intense pain or bleeding stop. You are not ready for this size plug. Let your ears heal or stretch more or check to see you are putting in the proper size.
