How to Care for Your Lash Extensions: Top Tips from the Pros
Lash extensions can give you the glamorous, full-lashed look you've always dreamed of, but they do require a bit of care to stay looking their best. Here are some top tips from the pros at Dash of Lash on how to care for your lash extensions.
Avoid Water and Steam for the First 24-48 Hours
The lash adhesive needs time to set completely. During this period, avoid showers, steam rooms, swimming, and excessive sweating.
Treat your lashes gently, avoiding pulling or rubbing them. When removing makeup, use an oil-free makeup remover and gently wipe away makeup without rubbing your lashes.
Cleanse Your Lashes
Maintaining clean lashes is essential for lash health and longevity. Use a lash cleanser and a clean, soft brush or lash wand to gently cleanse your lashes and remove any buildup or residue.
Brush Them Daily
Keep your lashes looking neat and fresh by gently brushing them with a clean lash wand daily. Brush from the base to the tips to detangle any lashes.
Avoid Oil-Based Products
Oil-based products can weaken the lash adhesive and cause your lash extensions to fall out prematurely. This includes certain makeup products, makeup removers, and facial cleansers.
Book Regular Refills
Your lash extensions will shed naturally with your own lashes. To keep your lash extensions looking full and fabulous, book in for refill appointments every 2-3 weeks. This will keep your lashes looking their best at all times. Book Online Here
Sleep on Your Back
If possible, try to sleep on your back to avoid crushing your lashes. If you're a side or stomach sleeper, consider investing in a lash extension-friendly pillow or silk pillowcase to reduce lash friction.
Caring for your lash extensions is a small investment of time that will pay off in the beauty and longevity of your lashes. If you have any concerns or questions about lash care, the team at Dash of Lash is always here to help. Enjoy your beautiful new lashes!
