Ways to Keep Your Lash Extensions on Longer and look better, from Red Lotus Lash Salon in Portland, Oregon.
1. Sleep on your back
This might sound like a crazy request (unless you already sleep on your back), but it's really important directly following your application, since the glue takes a while to dry fully and you'll otherwise get weird kinks. After a night or two, resume your normal sleeping position. Special trick sleep with eye mask to keep from crunching them.
2. Give your lashes a little TLC (Tender Lash Care)
When removing your eye makeup (liner, shadow, etc.), gently go over the area with a gentle makeup remover that contains no oil instead of placing cotton pads or puffs over your lids—not only could you eventually weaken the extensions and mess them up, the cotton fibers get stuck on lashes. (Not cute). Makeup remover wipes can also snag the lashes which can pull them out prematurely and leave fibers. I always make my own cleanser with baby shampoo, baking soda and a foam pump bottle with water. Put lots of bubbles on the lashes, gentle pressing the bubbles into the lashes with the middle finger and thumb. Careful not to tangle them just squeeze soap in with fingers to top and bottom of lashes. Rinse by cupping water up to eye, than pat dry with towel and gently comb down onto the cheek to organize the lashes a bit, than let air dry.
3. No oil
Oil weakens the glue bond on your lash extensions causing them to clump and stick together and can make them fall off sooner.
4. Comb them out
To prevent any criss-crossing or wonky-looking lashes, use a spoolie or mascara wand. Close one eye, place the spoolie on top of your lashes, then roll the brush over lashes to keep them defined. However, combing over and over again can pull out the lashes.
5. Resist playing with them
Your eyelashes shed naturally, so when you have extensions, this will help push them off. If an extension looks out of place, avoid playing with it or twisting or pulling it off—you'll risk losing your natural lashes. Let them come out on their own, and use a spoolie to brush them back into place in the meantime.
