General Information The eyelash cycle is approximately four to twelve weeks. Do not be alarmed if some of your lashes fall out quickly (they most likely were at the end of their cycle). Shedding lashes may be more noticeable simply because they have a darker, longer extension attached to them.
Avoid direct contact with water or steam for 4 to 24 hours. Your stylist will advise you exactly how long depending on the adhesive used (based on your specific needs of regular vs. sensitive adhesive).
Gently cleanse your lashes, lash line, and lid daily to keep your follicles and lashes beautifully healthy. Use lint free pads and applicators with an oil-free cleanser.
Rather than traditional mascara, if you want to further enhance your lash extensions, we have specially formulated eyelash extension mascara that is ideal for coating your extensions. Ask your lash stylist for more information.
Avoid any type of oil-based product around the eyes. Oils will break down the adhesive and cause the extensions to fall off.
Use eyelash combs and spoolies - they are great for grooming your lashes every morning.
Use oil-based products on or near your eyelashes including but not limited to eye creams, eye serums, heavy oils and cleansers as these can come into contact with your lashes and dissolve the adhesive bond.
Use waterproof cosmetic products on or near your eyelashes. Your stylist can recommend lash compatible products, but let the rule of thumb be: water-based products only!
Scrub or rub your eyes. You should not feel your lash extensions - if irritation concerns, let your stylist know immediately.
Use a sauna or steam room frequently. The repeated exposure to moist heat can break down the bonds in the adhesive - leading to a shorter retention time.
Never use a clamp-style eyelash curler on your extensions. This can permanently damage not only the extensions, but your natural eyelashes as well.
Put your face in direct heat from an oven, stove, grill, or dishwasher. The heat/steam can cause the tips of the lashes to melt! Let the burst of hot air out with your face to the side and then continue your project.
