Avoid Water for the First 48 Hours
Eyelash extensions are attached to your natural lashes using an adhesive. Once you receive the extensions, it’s important that you don’t get your eyelashes wet for the first 48 hours, so as to allow the adhesive time to properly bond with the natural eyelash. Avoid showering, swimming, and using hot water or steam on or near your lashes until the 48-hour period is over.
Try not to Curl
With your natural lashes, it’s normal to use an eyelash curler to give them a little extra boost of volume. However, with your eyelash extensions, curling your lashes could result in an unwanted curl that won’t go away, or it could cause damage to both your extensions and your natural lashes. Your lash artist will work with you to customize the curl, so if you know that you will want more volume, be sure to talk to your lash artist during your appointment.
Comb Them out When Necessary
Every so often, you may notice that your lash extensions are crisscrossing or appear to be slightly tangled. This is common for people who tend to toss and turn in their sleep. If you notice tangles in your lash extensions, gently comb through them using an eyelash comb. It’s important that you only do this when it is necessary, as over-combing could cause your lashes to fall out.
Don’t Play With or Pull Your Lashes
Try to avoid any unnecessary touching of your eyelash extensions, such as pulling, rubbing, or playing with them. When you pull or tug on your lashes, you risk accidentally pulling some of your extensions out. The same applies to rubbing your eyes to remove makeup. If you need to touch your lashes, do so gently or use a cotton swab to remove makeup close to the lash line.
Properly caring for your eyelash extensions will ensure that they stay beautiful for as long as possible. At Cherry Lash, we strive to provide you with everything you need to look your best and love your gorgeous eyelashes.
