The Dos and Don’ts of Eyelash/Eyebrow Extensions
For the first 24 hours avoid wetting your lashes/brows,heat, facials and tanning beds
After 24 hours, resume your lifestyle. When spray tanning, wear goggles. When receiving a facial, place cotton round on lashes.
Cleanse your lashes/brows daily and rinse with water
Only use The Lashe® oil free cleansers formulated for eyelash extensions. Cleansers must be oil free as oil degrades the adhesive bond.
Be careful with facial cleansers, beauty products or hair conditioner dripping onto your lashes/brows, as they often have high oil content. Use a washcloth to wash and rinse face. Lean head back in shower to avoid conditioner dripping on lashes/brows.
Be gentle with the lashes/brows
Excessive touching or rubbing of your eyes/brows will cause premature shedding of your natural lashes/brows and/or extensions as your fingertips contain oil. Wipe your lids and lashes with water after working out or excessive sweating. If you have oily skin, use blotting paper and wear powder, talc or eyeshadow on your lid to absorb oils. Dab brow area and surrounding skin gently with a sponge and water after working out or excessive sweating. Do not use circular motions. Sweat contains oil.
Never use eyeshadow base, gel, pencil or liquid eyeliner
These will break down the bond. Use an angled head brush and powder shadows for eyeliner and moisten the brush with water for a more defined line.
Never use eyebrow gel or liquid or brow pencil
They contain oils and will break down the bond. Use an angled head brush and powder shadow for shading in.
Only use mascaras that have been specially formulated for extensions
We recommend The Lashe® Mascara.
Apply mascara to the tips of extensions. Never use waterproof mascara.
Brush your lashes/brows in the morning using The Lashe® Conditioner and a clean mascara wand
It strengthens the bond, glosses the lashes and fortifies your natural lashes with Biotin and Pro-Vitamin B5. We recommend the conditioner for those with unruly brow hair to train them to grow straight.
Avoid excessive heat from ovens, grills and fire pits
Open oven/ grill doors and allow heat to dissipate first.
