Tips on how to groom and treat/repair natural lashes post lash extensions.

Let’s talk….lash extension care! 

Have you ever considered what you would do in the event that your favorite lash artist moved away? Or if you became part of that small percentage of clients that begin to experience irritation? Or the unthinkable….a pandemic put a halt to ALL your beauty services?!? 

Well if you haven’t considered the alternatives to lash extensions , or you would like some tips on how to groom and treat/repair natural lashes post lash extensions, read on.

We need a break…. 

Lash adhesives and techniques have really come a long way since their early days. Reputable Lash Artists will use quality products and proper techniques to ensure your lashes are matched to the appropriate length/thickness to avoid damage while suiting your needs.

Although all precautions may be taken on both your artist and your behalf, extended wear and tear can alter the natural growth. A break from your lashes will help strengthen them up and restore before your next application.  

Keep ‘em clean… 

Keeping your lashes clean is important for proper lash extension care as it allows absorption of lash serums and natural moisture. Build-up on the lashes is also prime feeding ground for harmful bacteria that cause styes.  

Use gentle eye makeup removers to break the bonds of your product and lift away build-up. 

Follow up with a gentle foaming wash. A gentle facial cleanser or a lash foam and cleansing brush gets right down to the lash line. If you are choosing to use a brush, use soft pressure and small circular motions.

For lash extensions, use only if approved by your lash artist.  

This process leaves your eyes feeling refreshed and makes for a squeaky-clean start to your makeup application. 

**TIP** Stick to a gentle eye makeup remover if you have sensitive eyes. 

Our picks for lash cleansing:  

  • Glo Skin Beauty – Gentle Makeup Remover. This light formula removes even the most stubborn makeup and a little goes a very long way.  
  • Glo Skin Beauty – Gentle Cream Cleanser Don’t be fooled by the name, this mild formula melts rights into your skin leaving a hydrated and clean surface.  
  • Lily Anne – Eyelash Foam Bubble Wash ($29.90). This fine foam soaks right down to the base of your natural lashes and extensions leaving them clean and intact.  
  • Lily Anne – Lash Cleaning Brush ($7.90) These soft bristled brushes are made specifically for the sensitive eye area and strip lash cleansing.  

Treat and hydrate… 

Keeping your lashes hydrated and enriched with nutrients will help prevent premature breakage and treat dry brittle lashes. Much like the hair on our head our lashes also benefit from added moisture.  

Lash conditioners feed the hair strands with specialized nutrients that encourage new and longer hair growth. The lashes are able to rebuild and strengthen for better application in the future. Most conditioners are also compatible and recommended for use even with lash extensions.  

Our top pick for lash conditioning: 

Keep in mind that if you have stray lash extensions hanging around, do not pull or cut them off. Contact your lash artist for recommendation for proper removal. 

Hope this info helps ties you over until your next lash appointment!

LASH LIFT Q & A

Q: What is a LASH LIFT? A: Lash lifts are a gentle form of lash perming that curls the natural lashes along the lash line. It gives the appearance of longer more feminine lashes. Q: How does it work? A: The first step is to open the bonds in the hair, giving flexibility within the mid shaft where the curl is found. The second step sets the lashes into position and seals the hair shaft. The third step reintroduces moisture back into the lashes. Q: How long does it last? A: Lash lifts can last up to 12 weeks. This depends on after-care products used and thickness of lashes. Gentle products are recommended on eye area and minimal rubbing. Thick lashes are more resistant and will fall faster than thin lashes. Q: Will the lash lift damage my lashes? A: It is recommended that clients wait 12 weeks between lash lifts. This allows your hair to recover and regenerate new growth. EyEnvy will condition and hydrate hair follicles for stronger-than-ever lashes. Q: How do I care for my lashes following the treatment? A: You must avoid water, makeup, and pressure on the lashes for 48hrs. Afterwards you can return to your regular routine and products. It is recommended to sleep on your back in order to avoid bending the lashes overnight. Using a lash comb to lift and operate the lashes will help set. Q: Are there any allergies I must be aware of? A: It is rare for reactions to occur as the products are kept strictly on the lashes.
  • who have sensitivity to latex are not recommended to have the procedure, as the adhesive used does contain latex.
  • If you have ever reacted to artificial lash glue used for strip lashes, you are at risk of having a reaction.
  • Typical allergic reaction will cause the eyes to swell for up to 72 hours.
