1. The 24 Hour No Heat Rule
Your eyelash extensions can’t get heat or steam on them for 24 hours after application. After that 24 hours is up you can shower, soak, swim, and go crazy with water all you want.This means no saunas,steam rooms, working out, showering, or swimming. Plan ahead for this.
2. High-Heat is a No-No
High heat can take even the best-applied lashes down. Don’t point your blow dryer in the direction of your lashes. The heat will distort them. Likewise, avoid exposing your lashes to high-heat cooking. In other words, don’t put your face in front of that hot oven ! Relaxing in the sun by the pool or beach is no problem.
3. Keep Them Clean And Avoid Cotton
Your lashes, both real and extensions, collect environmental pollutants, such as dust, chlorine and salt water. For best results, pump the lash cleanser onto a fluffy brush or use a disposable lip applicator (found on amazon). With closed eyes, gently apply to base of lashes using downward strokes, softly sweeping across lashes. Follow with a gentle water rinse and then let your lashes dry naturally. This will protect your lashes from eye makeup that may get dusted onto your lashes. If you see that your lashes are not straight, brush through them gently with a mascara wand (spoolie). Never use cotton around your for cotton will pull out the extensions. This includes q-tips and makeup remover wipes.
It is so important to keep your lashes clean to extend your wear time. Clean lashes equal healthy lashes. Clogged follicles can cause lashes to show improperly. We also want you to avoid blepharitis, clogged oil gland near the base of the eyelashes.
4. Avoid Oil Based Products And Use Lash Safe Mascara
The oils in many makeup and remover products are your worst enemy. The oil breaks down the adhesive causing premature lash loss. You can use lash extension safe mascara on your lash extensions for a more dramatic look, but I recommend a light pass only occasionally.
5. Handle With Care
Your natural lashes have their own cycle and shed naturally, so avoid rough handling such as rubbing and pulling which can remove your natural lashes and the extensions. Never be tempted to pick or remove extensions yourself. Always consult your technician for help.You can even help out your lash longevity when you sleep. By sleeping on your back, you can minimize lash loss.
6. Satin Pillowcase
Using a satin pillowcase can help you maintain your lashes. Not only does a satin pillow case look and feel great, the silky smooth fabric reduces friction which can help keep your lashes in place. Studies have shown that sleeping on a satin pillowcase can help eliminate hair loss and breakage.
7. Ditch the Crimp Curler
While standard crimp style eyelash curlers might give your natural lashes the extra curl that you want, they are not suitable for use with eyelash extensions and will only cause damage. Don’t crimp your extensions, ever.
8. Schedule a Fill
To keep your lashes gorgeous, follow your natural eyelash growth cycle and keep up with a fill every two to three weeks. Yes, eyelash extensions do require maintenance, so please be prepared for the upkeep. This is a super important part of your after care regime.
1.Handle With Care
Be very gentle with your lashes. No rubbing or itching. Sleeping on your back is best if you are a face or side sleeper.

Do not get your lashes wet for the first 24 hours. Do not use any oils, lotions, creams, shampoos, face washes, makeup remover wipes or pads on your lashes for a minimum of 24 hours. Swimming should also be avoided during this time.
3.No Product For 24 Hours
Allow 24 hours before applying any type of product to your lashes. After 24 hours, you may apply regular mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, or any type of makeup products you desire; it will not affect the lashes. However, NO WATERPROOF MASCARAS.
