Having amazing eyelashes from the second you wake up, until the moment you go to sleep will make your clients feel incredible. However, to ensure their lashes are in the best possible condition, it's important you inform your clients how to maintain and care for them. Below, we have included some of our top tips to ensure you have long-lasting, full fake eyelashes!
Avoiding water and steam
Firstly, and probably the most important tip would be to avoid contact with water and steam for the first 48 hours after the eyelash application. During this time, the lash glue is still drying, meaning the eyelash extension is still bonding to the natural lash and any contact with steam or water is likely to break the bond and make the eyelash extensions fall out quicker.
Avoiding oil products
Secondly, it's important that you only use oil-free or water-based products, due to the oil in the products being a huge factor in weakening the lash glue. It is always a good idea to have some oil-free products for this!
Cleaning lash extensions
Cleaning eyelash extensions regularly is extremely important if you want them to remain in the best possible condition and last long. Lashbox Foam Cleanser is ideal for you if you love to take care of your lashes. This product is also perfect for giving your lashes a ‘lash bath’ as it removes any dirt or natural oils that could be weakening the bond between the eyelash extension and natural lash.
Oil-free eye makeup remover
It’s important that when you remove your makeup (particularly your eye makeup) that you use an oil-free product to avoid breaking down the lash adhesive and damaging your lashes.
The best choice is to use oil-free cotton pads, so they can be used to remove your makeup before you apply your eyelash extensions, or they can be used as a makeup remover.
Brushing your lashes
Another tip for you to have long-lasting lashes is to brush your eyelash extensions on a daily basis. This may seem like an obvious step, but if you are new to this treatment, you’d most likely forget the eyelash extensions are even on. Brushing them on a daily basis usually means morning and night.
It is also recommended that you brush your eyelash extensions after showers and baths etc, due to the fact the extensions stick together when they are wet.
Caring for your eyelash extensions
- Avoid getting your eyelash extensions wet for the first 24 hours after application.
- Avoid putting makeup on your eyes for the first 24 hours after application.
- Don’t curl your eyelash extensions or put on mascara.
- Avoid the use of sunbeds and saunas for the first 48 hours after application.
- Brush your eyelash extensions daily.
- Treat your eyelash extensions with care.
