Have you ever looked down at your shirt or pillowcase to find five or six stray lash extensions? As fun and flirty as professional eyelash extensions are, their impact is short-lived when applied or maintained improperly. Considering how much quality eyelash extensions cost, you want to make sure you’re getting the most wear and “wow!” out of them. If your extensions are falling out, here are a few things to consider.
Our natural eyelashes have a regular shedding cycle
Though we may not notice, our natural eyelashes have a regular shedding cycle of 1 to 4 lashes per day. Unlike faux eyelashes, professional eyelash extensions are applied to our individual lashes – meaning that they, too, can be subject to this cycle. For this reason, we advise clients to come in for a fill every three weeks as new lashes grow in.
Treat your new eyelash extensions with the utmost care
For the first 48 hours, be careful not to rub your eyes, scratch near your lash line or pull at your lashes. You also want to avoid direct water and steam. Steer clear of oil-based creams, lotions or eye makeup removers, as well as any oil-based or waterproof mascara, so as not to disturb the eyelash glue bonds. Professional eyelash extensions are known for their full, dramatic look – which should eliminate the need for an eyelash curler. However, if you would like to curl your new lashes, do not use a mechanical curler.
Invest in a top-notch, professional eyelash extensions service
Quality eyelash extensions cost! Though it may be tempting to explore low-cost options, you owe it to yourself and your health to seek professional eyelash extensions services. Before your eyelash extensions service, be sure to conduct your research on the technician’s training and methods, as well as the quality of materials he or she will use. Not content with lash extensions you received elsewhere? Our Lash Squad would love to help! Take advantage of Cherry Lash’s Plan B service, where we can remove or accentuate your current set for fuller, more stunning lashes.
Get safe and beautiful eyelash extensions at Cherry Lash!
At Cherry Lash, we like to say that professional eyelash extensions are a maintenance beauty treatment. It is important that clients understand how to care for eyelash extensions in order to extend the life of them. When cared for properly, your eyelash extensions can last as long as 60 to 90 days after application. However, if a lash should loosen or become dislodged, be sure to make an appointment with us to replace it.
