The beauty of having eyelash extensions is the fact that you can wake up and instantly look and feel flawless! Some concerns that lash wearers might have is the idea of showering. This is a very common worry as we all want our lashes to stay on for as long as possible. The great part about lash extensions is that you do not have to change up your shower routine at all!
Right After a Full Set/Fill
If you have just received a full set of fresh lashes, or a fill, you will want to wait 24-48 hours before running them under water. The lash adhesive is waterproof, and meant for these kind of activities, but since the glue is still fresh it needs time to fully sit. This is a standard time period before fully allowing water to run through them.
When showering, allow as much water to run through your lash extensions as you want because they too need to be cleaned. There can easily be unnoticeable bacteria or dirt stuck in between your extensions. Making sure that you clean your lashes is just as important as cleaning your body. You want to make sure you avoid heavy water pressure on your extensions.
You should keep in mind that any activity that involves steam, or heat, will loosen the bond of your lash extensions. Activities such as hot yoga, or going into a sauna are not usually recommended when your lashes are freshly applied. The more moisture you allow on your extensions the more chance of the adhesive wearing down. This is completely normal as any lash glue is not permanent. These are some tips to keep in mind with lash extensions.
With eyelash extensions you get the luxury of having beautifully full lashes 24/7! There are many myths regarding eyelash extensions that you should be aware of. Lash extensions should be pain-free and hassle-fee. It is important to set the record straight on these false interpretations on extensions.
One myth that needs to be addressed before deciding to apply eyelash extensions is that they ruin your natural lashes. This is completely untrue. If your eyelash extensions are applied correctly and properly, they do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Your own natural lash thickness and length should be taken into consideration before choosing the proper styles and fibers specifically for you. In order for there to be no damage to your natural lashes, the fibers should be 3mm longer than your own lashes. If you choose to wear longer lashes for a long period of time, they might weigh down your lash roots.
Your lashes should not have too much glue on them or else they will become irritated. Make sure that your lash tech does your lashes by going through each individual lash. This allows for a more clear and clean set of extensions. Your lashes are constantly growing even with your lash extensions. So it is important that you clean them and take proper care of your extensions.
Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and may actually damage your natural lashes. If you notice that your lashes are diminishing over time, there are lash serums to help with growth. With the proper technique you should have no worries about your natural lashes falling out. This is a myth that makes potential users hesitant. It is all about the proper lash care and the lash techs expertise.
