If they are not properly cleaned, your lash extensions can become caked with dust, pollen, makeup residue, dead skin cells, and oil over time. This will cause bacteria to start growing on your extensions, which could cause blepharitis or a serious eye infection.
So, washing your lashes regularly is very important. Plus, keeping them clean has actually been proven to extend their life. Who wouldn’t want to keep their lashes looking beautiful for as long as possible?
It is recommended that you wash your lashes 12 to 24 hours after they have been applied. This will allow time for the newly applied lash adhesive to completely dry, and minimise the need for you to touch or rub the eye area.
💡 Lash Jungle PRO Tip for Lash Artists
Use Superbonder after you finish applying lashes to instantly dry the adhesive! Our Superbonder is designed to expedite the curing process, so your clients can wet their lashes immediately after the treatment. It also reduces adhesive fumes and sensitivity for your client’s comfort.
It is recommended that you clean your eyelash extensions at least every other day using a lash cleanser. Here’s our step-by-step guide on how to clean lash extensions:
Wearing heavy eye makeup is not recommended with lash extensions. If you do though, avoid using waterproof products, and use oil-free makeup removers only. Also, do not apply mascara on your lashes – it is extremely hard to get off.
Do not use a baby shampoo to clean your lashes, as most baby shampoos contain a harbor oil can affect lash retention. They are also not designed for use around the eye area, and as you know, the skin around the eyes can be very sensitive.
Only use a cleanser that has been specifically designed for eyelash extensions. This will safely remove oil, dirt, and makeup residue, and extend the life of your eyelash extensions.
Avoid using any products that contain oil. Oil-based products will weaken the bond between the extensions and your natural lashes, causing them to fall out prematurely.
Touching or rubbing your eyes and sleeping on your face will also cause poor retention.
