How to look after lash extensions

Besides applying mascara and false eyelashes, one way to get long and thick lashes is with lash extensions. This is the easiest and most effective way to save time in the morning and look gorgeous every day!  Eyelash extensions can last 6-8 weeks if you know how to take care of them properly & keep up with your maintenance session!

Here’s a few tips on how to look after your lashes! 

Try to avoid water

Immediately after getting your lashes done, you should avoid water and steam for at least 24 hours as it may affect the bond of the adhesive! But beyond the first 24 hours, your normal daily routines can proceed. When your lashes get wet, make sure you pat them gently with your towel and avoid rubbing your eyes.

Show your lashes some love

Applying lash serum made for lash extensions, daily to condition the hairs around your eyes is very vital as it encourages growth and strengthens your natural lash. 

Be careful when applying your makeup

If you are tempted to apply mascara over your lash extensions to make your eyes look bigger, apply an oil-free mascara and avoid using lash curlers! You can also use an oil-free eye makeup remover to cleanse your eyes and lashes. But try to avoid excessive rubbing!  

Brush your lashes

I’m pretty sure you don’t forget to brush your teeth! This is just the same with eyelash extensions! Brushing your lash extensions in the morning or after you shower using a spoolie to groom your lashes is very important. Try not to overdo it!

Avoid picking

Yess I know, picking lash extension can be tempting! But doing this causes damage to your natural lashes! You may end up pulling out your natural lashes before the end of their cycle & lead to permanent damage. Just give them a quick brush to put them back in place!
