Lash extensions are addictive…you heard it here first.
The first time they go on you wonder what you were doing P.L.E (pre lash extensions) and get excited for the amazing moments you know you’ll experience now you have those bad boys on.
For those as fanatic as us about their beautiful lashes, we have 5 tips on extending out their shelf life so you get the best out of them.
Sleep on your back
It may sound like we’re asking you to do the impossible, but the best thing for your lash extensions is to make sure you sleep on your back as much as possible. The friction caused from your lashes and cotton rubbing will cause premature shedding of your lashes, especially on the side you prefer to sleep on! We stock the best silk pillowcases on the market so as to minimise your lash shedding.
Don’t get them wet 48 hours after application
The adhesive used to glue on your lashes needs at least 24-48 hours to dry. To be safe, avoid excessive heat for the first couple of days as well, including hairdryers, bikram yoga, saunas and so on- due to excessive sweat. Once you can get them wet, make sure you comb them out so they keep their shape.
Use the correct products
Oil based products are the number one reason people find that their lashes don’t last as long. Cleansers such as 'Prolong Lash Complete Care' cleanser is formulated specifically for eyelash extensions and is oil free, and stocked at our salon.
Refrain from rubbing and touching your lashes
It sounds simple but a lot of people habitually touch their natural lashes and find they’re doing the same with their extensions. Natural oils from your finger plus the tugging won’t do you any favours if you’re after longevity.
Keep them combed!
Don’t let your lashes loose their shape and appearance by neglecting to comb them out. We supply you with a small comb after every session to make sure your lashes are kept in tip top shape until the refill rolls around!
