After having your lashes done (full set or refills as well as lash corrections), avoid water, heat, facial service and tanning beds in the next 24 hours. If receiving a facial, request for dry cotton rounds or tanning goggles to be placed over your lashes. Avoid facial products on your upper lids. Goggle should be worn for spray tanning.
After 24 – 48 hours, resume a normal lifestyle but resist heat, sweat, sauna and water.
Clean your lashes at least once a day. See our cleaning instructions.
If you use any kind of cleaning liquid/products, they must be oil free. Oils will weaken the integrity of the adhesive and make your lashes shed.
Brush lashes with a mascara wand at least once a day. Gentle roll the brush over the lashes with your eyes closed to detangle your lashes. Open your eyes and adjust your lashes with a brush.
We recommend an oil-free conditioner and be very cautious with hair conditioners that are oil-based. Lean your head back and do not let it drip onto your lashes.
We recommend oil-free Mascara. Only apply mascara on the tips of extensions. We recommend using an angle head synthetic brush to apply mascara. Do not use waterproof mascara.
Avoid getting close to the heated oven, grill or fire pit. When cooking, open an oven or grill lid, and should wait 20 – 30 seconds so the heat/steam/smoke dissipates before approaching. Excessive heat can straighten your lash extensions.
Avoid shower water stream from directly hitting your lashes.
Use any kind of skincare product but use a washcloth to rinse off and avoid these products which often have high oil concentration dripping onto your lashes.
How to clean your Eyelash Extensions – Step by Step
Remove all eye makeup using an oil and glycol-free makeup remover such as Oil Free Makeup removal. When removing eyeliner, use a cotton tip dipped in oil-free remover and wipe it either across the lid or away from the lid but NEVER towards the extensions. Do NOT use cotton balls as it will cause a huge mess.
If you are wearing a heavy foundation, remove this too before washing your eyes, using your OIL-FREE cleanser of choice but AVOIDING the eye area.
Wet your eyes with cool water. Take a SMALL amount of oil-free baby shampoo or Lady Lash Professional eyelash cleanser available at the studio and lather it up on your palm. Apply this to both eyes, one at a time, splashing it over them. Don’t rub or lather them like washing hair; just gently splash them over your closed eyes. If your eyes still feel grubby, repeat it over again.
Rinse it off and dab them gently dry. It doesn’t matter if they are a little damp, stuck together with water etc. when you brush them they will re-separate.
Use your lash wand to very gently twirl through them and fan them back out.
Do this 2-3 times per week.
IMPORTANT – Please do wait at least 24 hours before wetting your Eyelash Extensions.
