Life Extension for Lash Extensions:
Eyelash extensions should be filled every 3-5 weeks for proper maintenance. Caring for your eyelash extensions will keep your natural lashes healthy and your lash extensions beautiful.
For many years, we were taught to not get our new eyelash extensions wet for up to 48 hours. This was due to the ingredients made up in the adhesive. After much research, studying, and testing, this no longer applies! The adhesive that Hotlashes uses bonds to humidity which means they can get wet right away. Feel free to shower that day!
- Avoid using harsh mechanical eyelash curlers.
- Even though mascara is not necessary with your lash extensions, you can use water-based mascara only on the tips.Use it sparingly.
- Avoid using any oil based or waterproof mascara as this can cause the bond to weaken.
- Avoid using oil based cleansers on or near the eye. Instead, use water or gel based cleansers.
- Use a sponge tipped applicator or a lint free cloth to gently remove makeup around the eye area.
- Do not use cotton balls or cotton swabs as the fibers may get stuck to the bonded area. Best of all, create a foam in your hands and wash face circling around the eyes. With remaining foam on your hands, LIGHTLY rub your eyelashes with your thumb and pointer finger until any extra daily build up or make-up can be removed. Splash water on face to remove cleanser. Most of all, be gentle!
- Do not pick or pull your lash extensions and refrain from rubbing your eyes.
- Avoid too frequent exposure to spas, tanning salons, saunas and any type of steam.
- Try to avoid sleeping on your stomach or on your lashes.
- Get a touch-up within 2-4 weeks
You can enjoy your beautiful lashes with little adjustment to your lifestyle. Your eyelash extensions can last up to 3-5 weeks depending on the natural growth cycle of your own eyelashes and proper maintenance. The life cycle of an eyelash is 60-90 days. Lashes will naturally shed at the end of their life cycle.Get regular fills when you feel your eyelash extensions need a touch up.
