Before and Aftercare
Please read all before and aftercare instructions prior to your appointment.
Before Your Appointment
Come to your appointment free of eye makeup.
Do not use heavy oils and creams around your eye area and eyelid.
Do not curl your lashes prior to your appointment. Extensions do not adhere to crimped lashes.
Stay away from drinks that contain caffeine as they can cause twitching and rapid eye moment during your lash appointment.
Do not expose your lash extensions to water, steam or extreme heat for 48 hours.
When washing and wiping your face, be gentle around the eye area.
Use an oil free, lash extension safe foaming cleanser on your lashes to clean them 2-3 times a week. Use cleanser in conjunction with a soft bristle brush to gently cleanse the lashes.
Do not wipe the lashes directly with anything that has a lot of fibers. This will snag and pull on the extension.
Use oil free products around your eye area as the oils in these products break down the longevity of the lash adhesive. When wearing eye makeup be sure to use oil-free removers.
Do not wear mascara top of extensions.
Do not pluck or pull on hanging or grown out lash extensions. You can cause permanent follicle damage when you do this.
Lashes shed daily so you should expect to lose approximately 2-5 extensions per day as shedding is completely normal.
