Before Getting Lashes
Are Lashes for you?
Before taking the plunge on some Lash Extensions, Lets go over everything you need to know before.
Before coming into seeing us,
Avoid wearing Mascara, Eyeliner and Eye-shadows for 24 hours prior to your appointment.
Avoid the use of any products containing oils, ie; Creams, Toners and Makeups
This Ensures the glue will adhere its best.
Please keep in mind, the following list does not mean lashes will not last, each case is different, they just MAY effect your lash extension life. Lashes are still able to be applied, however, we are not responsible if your condition effects your lashes.
After- How to care for your new babies
How to ensure the longevity of your lashes.
For the first 24 hours after your application,
Avoid Steam, Saunas, Excessive sweating
Avoid getting them wet altogether- ie, Swimming and Showering
Do not put any product on your lashes, ie, Mascara/ Makeup and skincare (if you are using a spray facial Toner, apply to hands first and pat onto your face, avoiding eyes)
Never touch your lashes with your fingers, your natural oils will slowly break down the glue
Remember lash shedding is normal, daily you loose up to 5 lashes per eye. When we apply we try to avoid the most mature lash, with full sets we cover every lash., baby, teenage and mature. Seeing one of your lashes attached to an extension is normal, that lashes life was over, just like hair on your head shedding. Don't panic, as long as you're not pulling on your lashes, this is just apart of life.
