Lovelies, the absolute BEST part about having lash extensions is that you should never need to alter your daily routine because of them! Lash extensions compliment each and every activity you could throw at them! Lash extensions aren’t scared of water, showers, or a swim! Lashes love to be combed through, and pampered! The ONLY thing lash extensions are scared of is… OIL. KEEP THEM CLEAN by washing them everyday. This will ensure long lasting extensions, better comfort for you and keeping bacteria and dirt from building up and causing your problems. Oil on our lash extensions breaks down the bond of our adhesive prematurely, and causes lashes to “slip” off! Definitely something we need to be avoiding!
Oil can get onto your lashes from a number of things:
-oil based eyeliners
-oily make-up removers
Washing your lash extensions plays a huge part in how your lash extensions last, and how comfortable they are for you. If you have experienced any itching at the eyelid (with lash extensions or not) it is most likely caused by a bacteria build up at the eyelid base. Simply taking the time to daily washing of the eyelashes and eyelid keeps bacteria at bay, and ensures each lash lover has comfortable, gorgeous, and LONG-LASTING lash extensions between relashes!
Enjoy, lash lovers!
2 tablespoons baby shampoo
12 tablespoons water
1 tsp baking soda
Mix the ingredients together in a bottle and store.
To apply: using your fingertips, gently work the shampoo into your lashes and lash line. Thoroughly rinse with water, and pat dry (don't RUB!). Comb lashes with a mascara wand. You can hit them with a low, COOL blast of air from your hairdryer to thoroughly dry to a fluffy look.
*Don't get them wet for 24 hours
*do not rub, pull or pick you lashes as you can pull your own natural lashes out when you do this
*Absolutely no mascara on Volume Lashes! Mascara clumps lashes together and they are impossible to fix once you do this to a volume lash extension.
*Clean lashes daily
*Don't tug at the bases with your brush spoolie, brush tips only to straighten
