Lash extensions aftercare


2 min read

Proper aftercare is crucial for maintaining the longevity and appearance of your lash extensions. Here are some tips to ensure your lash extensions stay beautiful for as long as possible:

  • Avoid getting them wet for the first 24-48 hours: Water can weaken the adhesive, so keeping your lashes dry immediately after getting them done is essential.

  • Be gentle when cleansing: When washing your face, use a gentle, oil-free cleanser and avoid rubbing or pulling on your lashes. Instead, gently cleanse around the eye area.

  • Use oil-free products: Oil-based products can break down the adhesive and cause your lash extensions to fall out prematurely. Be sure to use oil-free makeup removers, cleansers, and eye creams.

  • Avoid using mascara: One of the benefits of lash extensions is that you typically don't need mascara. Using mascara can clump the lashes together and make them look unnatural. If you must use mascara, opt for a water-based, extension-safe formula and apply it only to the tips of the lashes, avoiding the base where the extensions are attached.

  • Be cautious with eyelash curlers: Avoid using mechanical eyelash curlers, as they can damage both your natural lashes and the extensions. If you feel the need to curl your lashes, use a heated lash curler sparingly and only on the tips, being careful not to tug on the extensions.

  • Avoid sleeping on your face: Sleeping on your stomach or side can cause your lashes to bend or become misshapen. Try to sleep on your back or use a silk or satin pillowcase to minimize friction.

  • Brush them daily: Gently comb through your lashes each morning with a clean mascara wand or spoolie to keep them looking neat and to prevent any tangling.

  • Avoid excessive heat: Exposure to heat, such as from saunas, steam rooms, or hair dryers, can weaken the adhesive and cause the lashes to fall out. Try to minimize your exposure to heat sources as much as possible.

  • Schedule regular touch-ups: Lash extensions typically last for 4-6 weeks, depending on your natural lash growth cycle. Schedule regular touch-up appointments to maintain the fullness and appearance of your lashes.

  • Be mindful during exercise: Sweat can weaken the adhesive, so if you're engaging in strenuous exercise, consider wearing a headband to keep sweat away from your lashes. Afterward, gently cleanse your lashes to remove any sweat and oil buildup.

Following these aftercare tips will help you extend the life of your lash extensions and keep them looking beautiful for weeks to come. Please remember to book your refill appointment ahead of time, if you have any concerns please reach out to us.
