The Pros And Cons Of Getting Eyelash Extensions 3
Dos and Don’ts of Eyelash Extensions
- After reading the above points, if you decide to do eyelash extensions, there are the following points to pay attention to:
- Avoid contact of water or steam with your extension for the first 48 hours after completing the procedure.
- When you take a shower, you have to blow dry your wet lashes with a hairdryer. Keeping them on the lowest speed and coolest, use a spool brush to dry them gently.
- Eyelash extensions are necessary as they start to look clumpy and sagging after 2-3 weeks due to your natural lash cycle.
- Don’t remove them yourself, or you may lose your natural lashes in the process.
- Your skincare and makeup routine must be updated to maintain the shape of your lashes.
- For example, oil-based cleansers and moisturizing eye creams are a big no-no.
- They allow the adhesive to become non-stick and allow the extension to come off faster. Also, mascara can add too much weight to the mascara and cause breakage.
- Finally, you have to be very gentle and careful with them. That means no rubbing, using only silk pillowcases, and being extra careful when using eye accessories like glasses or sleep masks.
