What are the after care instructions for Lash Extensions?
Keep your lashes dry for 24-48 hours post service. this will ensure maximum bonding.
Cleanse lashes daily - this will maximize retention and prevent buildup on the lash line.
Gently brush lashes daily (center to tip) especially after getting them wet. Do not brush near the base of your lash line due to the adhesive.
Avoid sleeping on your face.
Keep lashes straight and neat. This will prevent straining your natural lashes, and causing breakage/pre mature shedding.
Make sure ALL facial products are oil-free. Absolutely no oil based products near the eye area (Skincare products, make up products, make up removers, etc.) as this will cause the adhesive bond to weaken and you will see quicker fall out.
Avoid direct water on your lashes. This applies when taking a shower as well.
Avoid rubbing, pulling, and touching your lashes as this can strain and damage your real lashes. The oil on our hands can also cause retention issues.
Do not cut your lash extensions. Consult with your lash artist if you wish to make changes to your lashes.
if you experience seasonal allergies, you will experience poor retention. Taking allergy relief medication will help.
For oily skin and sweating - cleanse lashes to avoid poor retention. Oil breaks down the adhesive.
Avoid heat and steam (hot showers, grills, ovens, fire pits, etc.)
Avoid strip lashes on top of lash extensions as this can leave glue residue, cause build up, and may potentially damage your natural lashes/extensions.
