Lash Extension After Care

Caring for lash extensions properly is crucial to maintain both the health of your natural lashes and the longevity of the extensions.

Here are some key aftercare tips:

1. **Avoid Water and Steam for the First 24-48 Hours**
Keep your lash extensions dry for the first 24-48 hours after application. This allows the adhesive to set properly.
2. **Gentle Cleansing**
Use a gentle, oil-free cleanser to clean your lashes. Avoid cotton pads or swabs that can snag on the lashes. Instead, use a clean, soft brush or a lash cleanser designed for extensions.
3. **Avoid Oil-Based Products**
Oil can weaken the adhesive bond. Avoid using oil-based skincare and makeup products around the eye area.
4. **No Mascara or Eyelash Curlers**
Avoid using mascara, especially waterproof ones, as they can damage the extensions. Also, eyelash curlers can break both natural lashes and extensions.
5. **Sleep Carefully**
Try to sleep on your back to avoid crushing your lashes. Using a silk pillowcase can also be beneficial as it's gentler on the lashes.
6. **Regular Brushing**
Gently brush your lash extensions with a clean mascara wand daily to keep them neat and free of tangles.
7. **Avoid Rubbing Your Eyes**
Rubbing your eyes can loosen or damage the extensions.
8. **Regular Refills**
Depending on your natural lash growth cycle, you'll likely need refills every 2-4 weeks to maintain a full look.
9. **Professional Removal**
If you decide to have your lash extensions removed, have it done professionally to avoid damaging your natural lashes.
10. **Avoid Saunas and High-Heat Environments**
High heat can weaken the adhesive and cause the extensions to fall off prematurely.

Remember, the longevity of lash extensions can vary based on your lifestyle, the type of lashes and adhesive used, and how well you care for them. It's always a good idea to consult with your lash technician for personalized aftercare advice. Check out our:
