Attention all Lash Lovers!!
If you love your lash extensions & want them to last a long time then do yourself (and your Lash Stylist) a favour & use a SPECIALTY LASH CLEANSER EVERY DAY!
Please don’t use just any cleanser as MOST carry ingredients that aren’t suitable for use with extensions & will actually REDUCE the life of your beautiful lash extensions! 😫
Do not be fooled thinking that by not getting them wet that they will somehow last longer because this just isn’t true. Myth busted. End of story.
Bare in mind your eyelids are in fact the OILIEST part of your entire body & oil and lash extensions don’t play well together! Combine natural oils with oils from makeup products & you now have a recipe for a lash retention nightmare! 😭😭
So if you’re having lash retention issues, before you go blaming your Lash Stylist please make sure that you’re holding up your end of the deal & looking after your extensions properly!
Understand that Lash Retention is a 50/50 relationship between YOU & your Stylist.
It’s your Stylists responsibility to always use quality products, fresh adhesive that is suitable for their working environment & the correct technique to ensure the bond between the natural lash & the extension is as strong as possible.
As a client, your responsibility (if you want super long lasting lashes) is to keep your lashes clean using an approved lash cleanser & away from oily products such as moisturisers, sunscreens & other non compatible products & makeups such as mascara.
Tip! When cleansing your lashes concentrate on the base of your natural lashes as this is where your new extensions will be applied at your refill. The cleaner the surface is, the more effective the adhesive will be and the longer your lashes will last.
The reason oil (both natural & artificial) is such an issue is it creates a barrier between your natural lash & the extension/adhesive which means the adhesive won’t be as effective.
A lash extension friendly cleanser retails for about $25 & will last you months, not to mention save you $ when it comes time to refills as your retention will be much better! 💯
