The golden rule for wearing eyelash extensions is the less you touch them the longer they will last.
- Do not use an eyelash curler.
- Do not rub your eyes or lashes when washing your face.
- Clean around the eyes.
- Keep your lashes clean. Use a lash shampoo (available to buy HERE) or wash them gently with warm water (no soap) without rubbing your eyes. Keeping lashes clean helps them last longer and prevents infections.
- Do not pull your lash extensions, as you may pull your own lash out.
- Do not go in a sauna while wearing eyelash extensions.
- Do not use sun bed or steam room within 48h after treatment.
- Use only water-based mascara (You can wash it with pure water or micellar liquid which I have for sale). I would personally not recommend using mascara at all. It either contains oil and that melts glue, or some other vitamins etc which help your natural lashes but not your extensions
- Do not use eye make-up remover that contains any type of oil products such as petroleum (micellar liquid is best). Look for oil free make up remover
- Do not try to remove the Extensions yourself.
- Do not cut the Extensions (you may cut your own lashes).
- Do not let shower go directly on the extensions.
- When drying your face do not rub your eyes, instead blot your face and apply a gently pressure to your closed eyes then allow the extensions to dry naturally.
- Don't dry them with a towel or hair dryer.
- Remember to come in for touch ups.
Semi-permanent individual eyelash extensions will be falling out gradually - 3-5 lashes a day, from Day 1, same as your natural lashes do, due to natural lash growth cycle. Don't panic when you find a false lash WITH your natural lash attached. That's completely normal. Your own ones fall out and grow back without you noticing. It's natural process. During the treatment I apply extensions to all suitable lashes, including new/young and old ones. Some of your natural lashes are ready to fall (remember - they fall out everyday), so the best effect lasts for about 3 weeks and then you see more and more gaps. That's when you can have them either infilled or removed, if you don't want them anymore. Alternatively you can wait til they all fall out (which doesn't look good after a month or 2, I promise) :) - so if you don't need them - have them removed.
I will take no responsibility for any damage you may cause by not following the rules above.
It's been a year since I did this client's lashes for the first time (picture above). I removed them yesterday to give them a break. (It's always good to have one from time to time to let your lashes rest)
Only proper application and careful aftercare DO NOT damage your natural lashes. Make sure you get your lashes done by a certified and experienced eyelash technician.
