Eyelash extensions are a great way to enhance your look and give you the extra curl you want. But, like any other beauty treatment, they come with their own set of rules. Here are seven rules to follow after getting eyelash extensions to ensure you get the best results and keep your lashes looking beautiful.
Wash Lashes Daily. Daily washing is by far the most important instruction for the aftercare of eyelash extensions.
After washing them, or at any other time, if you see that your eyelashes aren't straight, brush them gently with a mascara stick (spoolie). Glad Lash has several to choose from, such as our pink spoolies, which come with 25 per pack.
Don't Touch or Pull Your Lashes. Who can perform eyelash extension services in the United States is regulated state by state. Don't worry about your eyelashes.
Also, avoid touching or pulling them. Let them go through a molting cycle naturally. If you pull on the eyelashes, it can cause them to come off permanently. Remember that eyelashes, like their counterparts in the hair, are not infinite.
You can pull them out one by one until they are completely erased. My clients who respect these rules experience excellent retention of their extensions and refill their eyelashes less frequently.
Avoid Standard Curly Style Eyelash Curlers. While standard curly style eyelash curlers can give your natural lashes the extra curl you want, they're not suitable for use with eyelash extensions.
Don't Use Oil-Based Products. Oil is difficult to clean and the same may require you to scrub your eyelashes hard to remove everything.
Use a Coating Sealant Once a Week.
I suggest using a coating sealant on eyelash extensions once a week, after cleaning them with an eyelash extension shampoo.
Know What You're Getting Into. There are a lot of things you should know before buying eyelash extensions, such as how much they cost, how to clean them and if they ruin your natural eyelashes.
Check Your State's Regulations. The following is not intended to be a complete or exhaustive list or summary of state laws and regulations related to eyelash extensions. The information contained herein should not be interpreted in any way as representing the full content of laws and regulations relating to eyelash extensions nor should it be interpreted as legal advice. Eyelash extensions are individual synthetic eyelashes that are applied to the end of natural eyelashes.
If it's not possible to book an appointment with your specialist, you can try to remove your eyelash extensions at home using home methods. It will have its own requirements before someone is allowed to apply eyelash extensions, but most states require a licensed technician. Because eyelash extensions come with pre-set curls in grades like J, L, B, C, D, M, U, and so on, there's no need to re-curl synthetic eyelash extensions.
