How to Care for Lash Extensions
Clean lashes last longer! It just takes following a few simple steps to help keep your lashes looking their best!First 24 hours Do not get your lashes soaking wet. Avoid hot and sweaty situation like hot yoga, saunas, hot tubs, and swimming pools. Cleanse Every Evening Your extensions need a gentle washing every evening. This will remove any natural skin oils as well as dust that has accumulated during the day. We recommend using a foaming cleanser like Lash Collection’s Eyelash & Brow Cleanser. The cleanser is available in a 3ml sachet or 50ml bottle. Add 3ml to a 60ml foaming bottle. Fill the bottle with either distilled or cooled boiled water. Shake the bottle to mix. Squirt a walnut sized portion of foam into the palm of your hand. Load a small fan brush with foam. Cleanse your lash line brushing in the direction of the lashes. Don’t scrub from side to side. Rinse and then pat dry. You can also use a hair dryer set on low and cool to dry your lashes. It makes them fluffy.:) Your lashes will love a regular light brushing with a spoolie. Avoid Oil Based Products Limit the use of gel and liquid eyeliners which will weaken the bond between the extension and your natural lash. Avoid any make up around the lash line. Oil based products will weaken the glue. If you are unsure about a product, ask your lash stylist. Avoid Mascara Never use mascara on volume lashes. Mascara will close the volume fans. We don’t recommend using mascara on classic eyelash extensions. If you want to use mascara on your lower lashes, make sure that the mascara is extension safe. Be Kind to your Lashes Don’t rub or tug your extensions. Be gentle when you cleanse the eye area. Sleep on your back or side keeping your lashes off the pillow. Splurge on a silk pillow case. Great for your hair, great for your skin, and great for your lashes! Book Your Fill Get your classic lashes filled every 3 weeks. Volume lashes need to be filled every 3-4 weeks.
