- Aftercare -

Following these important aftercare instructions will aid in extending the life of your lash extensions.

The first 48 hours following your application are the most crucial. Directly after application:

  • Avoid rubbing at or scratching your eyes
  • Avoid pulling/picking on your lashes
  • Avoid getting your lashes wet for at least 24 hours after application
  • Do not use a steam bath/sauna, go swimming, or directly wash your face with hot water within 48 hours of getting your extensions

Lash Tip!
Avoid exposing your lashes to extreme heat! Heat can cause lashes to loose their curl and can even singe them!

General Aftercare:

  • Do not use an eyelash curler as they may cause your extensions and/or your natural lash to fall out prematurely (your lash extensions should also look good enough to avoid curling altogether)
  • Do not use mascara
  • Eye makeup enhances the look of lash extensions, just be sure to properly clean lashes at the end of the day
  • Avoid using any cleansers or cosmetics containing glycols and carbonates, as these can loosen the bond of the extensions
  • Avoid using oil based makeup, cleansers, and makeup remover, as oil can also loosen the bond of the extensions
  • Do not rub your eyes or lashes when washing your face, gently cleanse around the eye region with a washcloth, finger, or brush
  • When showering, avoid direct spray on your lashes as well as avoiding getting conditioner on your lashes
  • Brush and cleanse your lashes daily
  • Book lash fills every 2-3 weeks to keep your lashes looking amazing

Retention is 50/50

Lash Technician: should properly apply lashes and inform clients of proper aftercare

Clients: should follow aftercare instructions and book fills every 2-3 weeks

Things that kill lash retention:

  • Dirty lashes
  • Heavy make-up that isn’t removed properly
  • Oily eyelids/face
  • Oil based skincare products
  • Sleeping on your face
  • Gym use that leads to excessive sweating
  • How often lashes are cleaned
  • Picking/pulling on lashes
  • Eye rubbing
  • Tears/crying
  • Medications (contraceptives, acne, etc.)
  • Hormones (pregnancy, post-pregnancy, periods, menopause, etc.)

Did you know?
It’s not uncommon to lose more lashes on one eye than another. Uneven lash cycles, sleeping on one side of your face more, or unconsciously touching one eye more than the other can lead to uneven retention.
