Avoid water for the first 48 hours. Once your fresh set of extensions are installed, any moisture around the eyes is a no-go. You want the glue to really set in so that your lashes last as long as possible.
Clean your lashes – it gets the skin oils off them. Did you know that your eyelids are one of the oiliest parts of your body? Oil causes a war within your extensions–the semi-permanent glue is fighting to keep the extension attached properly to your natural lash, while the oil is attacking and dissolving it. Unfortunately, oil tends to be stronger than lash glue on most occasions, causing dramatic shedding with even one application–so you wake up from your oil-based nightly routine with a bunch of lash extensions on your pillow. Tragedy!
BRUSH! No matter how long or where on your body, Hair needs a good detangle every so often. To maintain your fluttery new lashes, make sure to brush them out daily.
No oil products. Lashes HATE, hate hate oily products, full stop. Micellar water is included here, as many micellar waters actually contain oily ingredients.
Leave them alone! Touching eyelash extensions or rubbing eyes can be a totally sub-conscious tendency. Some clients even rub their eyes in their sleep. Let each client know that doing so will cause their lash extensions to prematurely fall out. The oils or lotions from their hands will break down the adhesive causing them to come in for lash fills much more often – which, in this case, is NOT a good thing!
LOOK AFTER THOSE LASHES!
