Tips on How to Care for Eyelash Extensions

For the first four hours, avoid water. This is the best way to maintain your eyelashes. Avoid oil, salt, and glycols in cleansers after that. Regularly clean, and dry, and then brush your lashes.

Day-to-Day Chart for Aftercare Lash Extension

False lash extensions can be customized by a majority of lash techs in 1.5 to 3 hours. This is based on your eye shape, lash texture, length, thickness, and curls.

Here are three things to do next:

What to Do in the First 24 hours?

For the lash adhesives to set or cure, it is crucial that they are fully dried within four hours. For the curing time, don’t let water touch your false extensions. Also, don’t sweat (gym), cry (salt-in-tears), or cook (steam/heat) during this time.

False lashes can be applied in as little as four hours. This is a significant improvement in the time it took to cure lash extensions.

However, curing times can vary depending on the lash glue used and the humidity. Before you leave the salon, make sure to ask your lash technician about the curing times for your eyelash extensions.

What to Do from Day 2-5?

You can resume normal activities such as cleaning, showering, and cooking after the cure period. It’s best to avoid excessive heat and sweat, no matter where you are. Avoid fidgeting with new lashes.

What to Do from Day 5 Until Your Refill?

To avoid dirt and dust from building up on your lashes, it’s essential to brush and clean your extensions every day.

Failure to do this can lead to infections and mites. If you use eyeliner, mascara or foundation regularly, it is a good idea to clean your lashes at least once a day.

How Do You Clean Your Lash Extensions and Lashes?

  • To rinse the cleanser, use a lash shampoo with a soft makeup brush. Then rinse the cleanser with warm water.
  • Let them air dry.
  • You should also untangle them using a lash comb, mascara wand, or a clean lash brush.
