Knowing how to make eyelash extensions last longer is a pursuit for those seeking a semi-permanent solution to achieve a perpetual makeup. While eyelash extensions offer an impressive transformation, expecting them to last for months would be overly optimistic.
Typically, extensions endure for about four to six weeks, but this duration varies based on individual lifestyle factors and constant refill appointment. The maintenance and care of eyelash extensions play a vital role in preserving their durability.
To help you with eyelash extension preservation, we’ve got the best tips and suggestions for keeping your lash extensions for as long as possible.
1. Looking After Lash Extensions
Abstain from touching, rubbing, or manipulating one's lash extensions. Regular manipulation of the items enhances the probability of their becoming less secure or detaching prematurely. It is advisable to exercise caution when engaging in facial cleansing, cosmetic application, or the use of any products in close proximity to the ocular region.
2. Avoid Oil-Based Products
It's best to use specially designed aftercare products for lash extensions. Avoid oil-based products, including makeup removers. Our Flawless foam cleansers, and mascaras, possess the capacity to undermine the adhesive bond of lash extensions. It is recommended to opt for oil-free alternatives in order to mitigate the deterioration of the adhesive and promote the durability of the extensions. Make use of cosmetic products, such as Flawless Eyeliner, that have been specifically developed and formulated to ensure compatibility with lash extensions.
3. Good Maintenance Practises
Clean them using a specialized lash cleanser or a gentle cleanser that is devoid of oil. To effectively remove dirt or debris, it is recommended to employ a soft brush or a lint-free applicator. Lashes that are maintained in a clean state exhibit a diminished probability of amassing residue, thereby potentially compromising the strength of the adhesive bond.
4. Minimize excessive moisture
It is recommended to limit extended exposure to steam, or high humidity within the first 24-48 hours after the application of lash extensions. But in a high-humidity environment, it is okay if the lash artist uses a lash bonder by employing our Insta Cure product, which has the highest level of safety in settings characterized by the presence of water, steam, or humidity.
The presence of an excessive quantity of moisture has the capacity to interfere with the curing mechanism of the adhesive, resulting in a compromised level of bond strength. After the initial phase, it is imperative to minimize extended contact with moisture in order to optimize the preservation process.
5. Refill Appointment
Lash extensions experience a natural shedding process as an inherent component of the lash growth cycle. In order to preserve the voluminous appearance of one's lashes and mitigate any potential loss of extensions, it is advisable to arrange periodic fill-in sessions with a qualified lash technician. This procedure guarantees the completion of any voids or regions with limited coverage, thereby preserving the intended visual appeal.
The utilization of extensions that possess excessive length or thickness has the potential to result in an increased incidence of natural eyelash shedding. This phenomenon arises due to the added weight of the extensions, which exerts strain on the natural lashes, resulting in their gradual deterioration. As a result, the natural eyelashes may experience premature shedding as a mechanism to compensate for the increased weight.
6. Avoid Pulling Re-Grown Extensions
When you pull at re-grown extensions, you risk damaging the natural lashes to which they are attached. This damage can lead to weakened, sparse, or broken lashes, compromising both the longevity of your extensions and the health of your natural lashes.
7. Use Lash Serum
Utilizing our lash growth serum specifically designed for lash extensions can strengthen natural lashes, ultimately extending the longevity of your lash extensions.
