How to Care for Eyelash Extensions: A Step-by-Step Guide

Yes, waiting 24 hours after your appointment is the general rule. However, most eyelash stylists will now use a method to cure eyelash extensions during the consultation. If that's the case, you can start washing your eyelashes much sooner, in just 4 hours. Asako and Naoko are certified eyelash stylists and owners of Divine Lashes, a site for eyelash lovers to meet and learn more about eyelash extensions and lifting.

This is a step-by-step guide to maintaining the quality of eyelash extensions from the moment they are applied until the next session with the eyelash technician. I highly recommend using it several times a week to ensure the strength and health of your natural eyelashes. Begin by brushing your eyelashes gently from just beyond the lash line down to the tips of the extensions. For anyone new to the world of eyelash extensions, Clementina Richardson is here to explain it all, from top to bottom. Before you start cleaning your extensions, make sure to remove all makeup from parts of your face other than eyelashes (such as foundation, lipstick, and blush).

The technician will clean your eyelashes during the appointment and add more extensions to give them a fresh and spongy look. An eyelash brush, an eyelash cleaner and a reel brush are three essentials for cleaning eyelash extensions at home. Place the brush on the lash line and brush towards the ends of the eyelashes, and avoid brushing the base. If you never wash your eyelashes, the oil stays there, accumulating and slowly consuming the eyelash adhesive. If you're one of those people who love to rub your face thoroughly while you're in the shower, avoid the eye area if possible and be kind to the lash line and close to it.

It is recommended to use a professional cleanser for eyelash extensions that nourishes, deeply cleans and protects natural eyelashes. About 4-5 years ago, eyelash artists were taught that customers MUST wait at least 24 hours before they can get their eyelash extensions wet. Caring for your eyelash extensions is essential for keeping them looking beautiful and healthy. To ensure that your lashes last as long as possible, it's important to follow a few simple steps. Start by brushing them gently every day with an eyelash brush or comb.

This will help keep them neat and tidy while also preventing any tangles or clumps. When it comes time to wash them, use a gentle cleanser specifically designed for eyelash extensions. This will help remove any dirt or makeup residue that may have built up over time. Make sure not to rub or scrub too hard as this can damage the adhesive bond between your natural lashes and the extensions. After washing them, pat them dry with a soft cloth or paper towel. Finally, make sure to moisturize your lashes regularly with an oil-free product.

This will help keep them hydrated and prevent any breakage or shedding. With these simple steps, you can keep your eyelash extensions looking beautiful for weeks on end!.
