Eyelash extensions are a game-changer if you’re longing for voluminous, fluttery lashes without the hassle of mascara or falsies. These semi-permanent beauties have taken the beauty world by storm, providing a stunning, low-maintenance solution for achieving your dream lash look. Proper aftercare is essential to ensure your extensions last as long as possible and maintain their stunning appearance. Follow along as we share some valuable tips and tricks for taking care of your eyelash extensions, so you can enjoy their lifespan and keep your lashes looking fabulous. 

 

  1. Keep your eyelashes dry for the first 24 hours. After your eyelash extension application, keeping your lashes dry for a full day is crucial. Avoid water, steam, and excessive humidity during this period, as the adhesive needs time to bond fully. This will help prevent premature shedding and ensure a longer-lasting result.
  2. Cleanse your lashes daily. Maintaining clean lashes is essential for both eye health and the longevity of your lash extensions. Use a gentle, oil-free lash cleanser or a specially formulated lash shampoo to clean your lashes and remove any dirt, makeup, or debris. Use a soft brush or a lint-free applicator to cleanse between the lashes without pulling or tugging gently. Ask your technician which cleansers they recommend.
  3. Avoid oil-based products. Oil-based products, such as makeup, makeup removers, and cleansers, can weaken the adhesive bond and cause your extensions to shed prematurely. Opt for an oil-free, water-based formula to ensure the longevity of your lashes. Check your product labels carefully and avoid using cotton pads or swabs that leave behind fibers. If you are unsure if a particular product is safe for use, consult a certified eyelash technician.
  4. Avoid excessive rubbing or pulling. It is natural to feel tempted to rub or touch your eyes. However, resisting this urge is crucial for the longevity and health of your lash extensions. Rubbing your eyes vigorously can cause the adhesive bond to weaken, leading to premature shedding and potentially damaging your natural lashes. Instead, try to find alternative ways to soothe any discomfort or itching, such as using a cool compress or gently patting your eyes.
  5. Brushing and grooming your eyelash extensions is a vital part of their maintenance routine. Regular brushing helps to keep your lashes looking neat, separated, and tangle-free. Using a clean, soft-bristled lash brush, gently comb through your lashes from the base to the tips. This simple practice not only enhances the appearance of your extensions but also helps to distribute natural oils and prevent any buildup at the lash line. 
  6. Schedule regular lash fill appointments. As your natural lashes follow a growth cycle, the extensions applied initially will eventually shed along with your natural lashes. To keep your lash line consistently voluminous, it’s recommended to visit your lash professional every two to three weeks for touch-ups. During these appointments, your lash tech will remove outgrown extensions and fill in the gaps with new ones. Regular touch-ups help maintain the desired length and thickness, ensure that your lashes stay symmetrical and balanced, and avoid needing a full set application more frequently.
