Keep your extensions clean!!
Keep your lashes looking like the professionals ! Ever wonder why our lashes always look amazing ? For beautiful extensions that last, follow these guidelines faithfully, and keep your extensions looking like the pros!
*Wash lashes twice a day only with lash friendly cleanser . Especially if you are wearing make-up around extensions. Never go to bed with dirty lashes!! Cleansers that are not designed for extensions can be too aggressive , and cause premature shedding
*Brush lashes everyday. Do not brush lashes that have not been cleaned!! If you are brushing and not washing you are pulling on crunchy lashes, and causing them to be break off !
*Keep all oily products not designed for extensions away from lashes. This includes Make-Up (especially mascara), contact solution, eye creams, and hair products. Natural tears can leave a film on lashes as well so be sure to wash lashes after crying, or sweating.
*Do not rub or pull on lashes. Sleep with silk or satin pillow case. Some materials can snag extensions.
*ONLY use lint free products around lashes, do not use make-up wipes, q-tips or cotton swabs on lashes.
*Do not get tanning solution on lashes, or expose them to the tanning beds. Extensions are sensitive to heat sources and can end up looking scorched or lose their curl.
*Schedule regular two week relash appointments
The hard truth is , extensions are going to shed! I know its sad to see those beautiful lashes fall! It is however, inevitable that they do because your natural lashes have their own shed cycle that is unique to you! The average person loses 2-5 natural lashes a day, so naturally extensions are going to shed as well. Our state of the art products help create beautiful lashes that last! however we cannot control how and when your natural lashes shed. Or how well you take care of your extensions after your appointment. So please follow all the recommended guidelines.The photo above, is a good example of what your extensions should look like prior to a fill. Average rate of extension shedding: After 1 week = 10%. 2 weeks-30%. 3 weeks 40-60%. 4 weeks 75% or more of extensions have shed. If you did not follow guidelines and you lost all your lashes, or it has been four weeks since your last appointment, then you need a full set.
Do not excessively brush extensions. Keep hands off! Do not apply make-up to eye area in the first 4-8 hours.
Be prepared to see extensions fall the first time you wash your lashes. Clients who toss and turn in their sleep might notice lashes that have fallen on their pillow.
Wait only 4-8 hours after your fill or full set, before getting lashes wet. Do not go more than 24 hours without washing lashes!!! Vivify salon is not responsible for damage done to lashes after 24 hours. If you are seeing extensions shedding rapidly shortly after your service please contact the salon.
The best thing you can do to help the life of your extensions and to keep your natural lashes healthy is to WASH them regularly. Not washing lashes can cause an overgrowth of lash mites which can effect how well your lashes grow. Without healthy natural lashes, we have nothing to attach a beautiful extension to!! So please wash your lashes ! Twice a day keeps the lash mites away! The photo you see above is what a lash mite over growth looks like!! Yuck!! we cannot attach extensions to lash mites. Extensions need clean, oil free lashes to adhere to. Please come to your appointment with clean lashes and eyes. Please do not apply concealers or powders to lids or under eyes before your service. Time spent deep cleaning your eyes is time lost lashing!
We recommend using Lash Box LA Bubble Lash to cleanse lashes with. Use lint free applicator or clean hands to gently sweep down lash line and around lids. RINSE cleanser off with warm water. Blot around eyes with lint free towel. Use hand held fan to dry or air dry. Gently brush extensions from center of curl out. Do not brush up from base like you would apply mascara.
Never go to bed with wet lashes!
Lashes are not just a luxury, they are a lifestyle and an investment. Protect your investment with our recommended guidelines, and live life with beautiful, sexy lashes!!
