It is just as important to look after your lash extensions as it is for your Lash Technician to prep your lashes prior to application.
You have spent not only your hard-earned money but also your precious time having beautiful lashes applied. So why is it important to follow the Lash Extension Aftercare that your lash technician has given you?
- Your lashes will look beautiful for longer.
- You will spend less time on the couch having your lashes prepped.
- Your natural lashes will not suffer.
So what Lash Extension Aftercare should you follow?
We have put together some important advice below for you to follow, however, do make sure you follow the advice of your lash tech as well after all they will know your lashes.
DO NOT get excessively wet for the first 24 hours. This allows the adhesive to cure (dry)
DO NOT use steam rooms, saunas or sunbeds for 48 hours
DO NOT perm, tint or use eyelash curlers
DO NOT use waterproof or oil-based mascara on your extensions as they contain chemical properties that will break down the adhesive
DO be gentle around your eyes, don’t rub or pick at your extensions
DO use an eyelash comb or mascara wand, these are great for grooming your lashes each morning
DO gently wash daily with eyelash cleanser, keeping the root area clean.
