Eyelash Extension Care Dos and Don’ts

Want long-lasting lashes? You, of course, do! That's why it's crucial to understand how to care for eyelash extensions.

The following eyelash extension care guidelines may take some getting used to. It will be a breeze once you get into your lash-loving regimen. Let's get started on the dos and don'ts of lash extension maintenance!

Do Keep Extensions Clean

This one should go without saying, but you'd be amazed how many people fail to do it!

Making ensuring your eyelash extensions are clean is a crucial part of caring for them. Here's how to do it:

With an oil-free liquid makeup remover or face wash, remove your makeup and gently cleanse your extensions.
Wipe the extensions with a damp cotton pad instead of a dry one, as a dry pad could catch on your lashes.

Keep in mind that your eyelash extension salon may have a cleanser on hand or a recommended lash cleanser that you may buy. If you just remember one thing, lash babes, remember to clean your lashes!

Don’t Use Oils in Your Face Routine

Did you realize that too much oil on your lashes can shorten their lifespan? Yes, oils dissolve the lash adhesive that keeps your lashes in place. Don't make it difficult for your lash extensions to stay in place if you want them to last!

Oils in everyday goods like skincare serums, eye creams, and lotions can disintegrate eyelash adhesive. Choose water or gel-based products, and read the ingredient labels before trying something new.

You'll be surprised to learn that many mascaras also include oils. Take a big breath; you don't have to put the mascara wand down for the rest of your life! There are mascaras designed specifically for eyelash extensions that will not harm your extensions. Apply this carefully formulated mascara solely to the tips of your lashes to achieve the glam girl effect.

Do Schedule Lash Refills

Taking care of eyelash extensions entails paying attention to your lashes' requirements. The more time passes, the more difficult it becomes to maintain your lashes' volume. Regular refills with your lash technician are one of the greatest ways to keep your eyelash extensions looking fresh and thick. Although it may appear to be a waste of money, regular lash care can really save you money.

If you wait too long to refill your lash extensions, your lash technician may suggest that you buy a full set to get them back to their former splendor. Make an appointment with your lash technician to find out what they recommend for refilling your lashes. Also, don't be scared to inquire about eyelash extension care from this expert.

Don’t Soak Your Lashes

Similar to excess oils, too much moisture may break down the eyelash glue. No, your lashes won’t fall out excessively in the shower or droop from a light rain, but water can affect the overall look of the lashes. The best practice is to avoid any excess moisture. Now isn’t the time for sauna trips or facial steam treatments!

If sunbathing, sweating and splashing around are part of your regular routine. 

Do Brush Your Lashes

When we give our clients advice on how to take care of eyelash extensions, brushing is always on the list. Long lashes are beautiful, but they can also trap debris and dirt. The solution is simple— make brushing your lash extensions part of your daily routine.

Don’t Use an Eyelash Curler

If you're anything like us, you can't live without a few beauty essentials. This eyelash extension care tip may be difficult to handle if a lash curler is on that list. When you have lash extensions, you don't need to use an eyelash curler.

In fact, using a regular lash curler on your extensions can cause more harm than good. You can wind up with an ugly lash bend that refuses to go away. The good news is that your lash specialist will select extensions with the curl you desire. So, while the extensions are being applied, put down the curler.

Do Enjoy Your Lashes

Eyelash extensions are an excellent investment for women who wish to speed up their morning ritual while maintaining a beautiful appearance. Yes, you should learn how to take care of eyelash extensions, but you should also appreciate them while they're still there!
