So you just got your new set of gorgeous lash extensions and you now want to know the correct way to take care of your new babies, right?
Well, you have come to the right place. Caring for lash extensions isn't hard at all, as a matter of fact; it only requires a few simple steps to follow so that you will get the maximum wear out of your new lashes.
We have put together a list of Do's and Don'ts that will help you get optimum wear out of your new lashes.
DO NOT get them wet for the FIRST 24 to 48 hours. (Swimming, saunas,excessive sweating)
Getting your lashes wet before the first 24 hours are complete, causes lashes to weaken and fall out prematurely due to the glue not having chance to dry completely.
After a full 48 hours you may submerge your lashes in water. When you do get your lashes wet, please dont rub them dry with a towel, instead dab the lashes above and below softly.
If you're going to the beach or applying Sun screen please be very careful and avoid putting Sun screen on your eyelids. Oils from sunscreen and other serums will break down the glue causing premature shedding.
Do not use eyelash curlers
With lash extensions and so many curls to choose from, you will not need your lash curler. Lash curlers can break the bond of the glue on the lash which could cause damage to your natural lash and cause premature shedding.
Brush and fluff your lashes every morning
After sleeping sometimes your lashes can be a bit twisted and out of place. Simply use a spoolie brush to get your lashes nice and fluffy again. When brushing, please brush from the middle to the tip of the lash, NEVER from the root to the tip.
Also if you can, try sleeping on your back to eliminate friction on your lashes while you are asleep
Do not use oil based products near your lash line
that includes make up remover serums near the eyelash area this will cause the lashes to fall off prematurely due to weakening of the glue.
Please use an oil free makeup remover to remove any eye make up
As stated above any oils will weaken the bond of the glue and cause lashes to loosen and fall off.
Please wash your lashes to prevent oil and makeup build-up
Washing your lash extensions is very simple. Just make sure whatever you use around your lash line is oil-free. Most people formulate their own cleanser using Johnson's baby shampoo and a eyeshadow brush. Click here for a safe DIY lash shampoo that you can make at home.
