Caring For Your Lash Service
The LONGEVITY of your lashes depends on your home care.
THE DOs ~ KEEP THEM CLEAN
Wash your lashes daily. Suds up and rinse immediately with cool water. Use the lash wash that came with your service or buy a wash that is extension safe, avoid makeup removers. Use the white bristle brush that came with your full set to clean your lashes with a gentle downward stroking motion. Don't use the mascara wand to wash your lashes, it will tug them off!
Use your mascara wand to brush/style your dry lashes. Please wait 15 minutes after showers to brush. This allows lashes to return to room temp and reduces the risk of premature shedding.
Working out at the gym? Wash lashes when you get home. Sweat/oils/products will find their way to your lashes during a workout, wash them out!
Pool swimming? Wash lashes right after. Chlorine makes lash adhesive brittle.
At the Beach? Wash lashes when you leave. Even if you don't go in the ocean, be sure to wash your lashes, the salt is in the air!
Sunblock? Keep away from your lashes. If you sweat sunblock into your lashes, wash them right away. Sunblock is greasy and will dissolve the adhesive bond.
The DON'Ts~KEEP OILS AND HEAT AWAY
Avoid hot water on your lashes. This can soften the adhesive bond.
Avoid oils of all kinds. Oil will dissolve the adhesive bond. Oil has a high saturation rate. Even if you are avoiding your eyes, oil applied to your forehead/eyebrows will still transfer to your lids.
Don't sleep on your lashes. You don't want to mush them up!
Don't open ovens or grills with your face close by. Let that heat/steam/smoke escape before putting your face too close, lashes can singe easily.
Hot hair dryers can also singe. Shield your lashes from heat styling tools.
Don't touch them. Oils in your hands will degrade the adhesive.
Don't pick or pull your lashes. Lashes are meant to shed on their own, picking or pulling on them could damage the cuticle.
Don't use regular mascara. Extension safe mascaras are on the market, we sell our favorite brand at the studio. (Mascara must be cleaned off prior to your appointment. It creates a barrier between your natural lash and adhesive.)
Don't worry, be happy, no tears! Tears have salt in them so if you do have a teary day (we hope they are happy tears)...when you're done, wash them out to get that salt away.
