We all love a good laugh but let’s never kid about eyelash extensions and their maintenance; that’s serious business.
For those of us who got stuck with stick-straight lashes and got eyelash extensions, we know just how grateful we are for our fluttery friends. And what better way is there to say thank you than with some good old-fashioned love, care, and maintenance?
If you don’t comb and cleanse your lashes, you’re dooming them to fail; and that’s something we’re here to help you avoid. So pick up your notepad and take a look at all the ways you can care for your eyelash extensions to make them last longer.
Clean and Brush Them Regularly
This is the basis of your “how to care for your lash extensions 101” lesson.
Much like how you need your face to be a clear canvas when you do your makeup, you need your eyelash extensions to be clean before putting any product on them. If you think your day-to-day face cleansing routine is enough to clean your lashes, think again.
Your eyelash extensions require special attention, and that means buying a product that’s specifically designed to clean your lash extensions. We recommend using the Lash Pro foaming cleanser, so it doesn’t affect the lash glue.
Once you’ve cleaned your lashes, use a clean spoolie to brush them out, so they don’t stick together. Do this every day, especially before you go to bed.
Invest In an Eyelash Extension Sealant
If you’ve invested time and money in lash extensions, you should get a lash sealant to extend the life of the adhesive used to put on the extensions.
This product goes a long way in extending the life of your lashes as it locks your extensions in place. Research the kind of sealant you want to buy and make sure that you purchase one that suits your lifestyle.
For instance, if you’re active and always on the go, your sealant should be able to work around any oil or sweat that may gather around the eye area. Investing in a sealant will also increase retention, saving you trips for lash refills.
Don’t Miss Your Refills… Ever!
This one is a no-brainer.
When it comes down to it, your lash refill appointments are the only thing sustaining your extensions. They keep your lashes looking full, fluttery, and just as fabulous as they were on day one.
A lash specialist will perform maintenance on your lashes, freshen them up, and add new extensions to retain the fullness, giving you a lush lash line that you’ll appreciate every time you look at yourself in the mirror.
