How to prevent lashes from falling out.

Today in the beauty industry lash extensions are the newest obsession. The idea of having effortlessly fluttery, gorgeous, long lashes is what draws people towards the art of eyelash extensions. Ladies who have sticky, stubby, or thin lashes are ideal for this service because who doesn't like waking up with their lashes done? You may hear about "how hard it is to maintain your lashes" but in reality they are completely manageable as long as you follow the correct steps.

Before diving into the lash world, let's talk about the dos and don'ts of eyelash extensions.


Get your lashes done by someone who is certified

All certified lash techs are trained to properly attach the lash extension to your natural lash, using the lash adhesive. Your eye is one of the most sensitive parts of your body so you want to make sure that whoever is working on your lashes knows what they are doing. Ladies, do not feel shy ask your lash technician as many questions that you have.

Wait 24 hours before getting your lash extensions wet

The lash adhesive takes at least 24 hours to completely cure even though there are products that state that curing time is reduced.

Do not go to the gym, get a facial or go get tanned the same day that you got your lash extensions.

Clean your lashes regularly

Everyday when we blink we are removing any eye secretions that may hurt our eyes. AT night since you are not blinking you will need to clean your eyes to remove all of the gunk build up. If you don't clean your lashes it can block your lash follicles and cause your lashes not to grow.

Make sure you clean your lashes with lash-safe cleanser after working out, bathing, swimming and as part of your everyday skincare routine. Other than washing your lashes you need to make sure that they stay dry after getting them wet. If they are over exposed to moister it can cause the adhesive to break down, causing your lash extensions to fall out faster.

Tip: Make sure to keep a lash brush in your purse to that you can brush your lashes throughout the day.

Sleep on a silk pillow case.

Cotton pillow cases tangles up your hair and causing hair breakage. It sucks the oil out of your hairs causing it to become dry and brittle. This also causes your lashes to fall out faster. How can you resolve this? Throw the cotton away and order yourself a silk pillow case off of Amazon.

Protects your lashes from heat

Another enemy is heat. When your lash extensions are exposed to a lot of heat and sunlight, they will dry out and start to fall out. Just make sure to wear your sunglasses everyday and avoid hot baths, steams, or saunas.


Use unsafe lash products

Many beauty products contain oils and alcohol that is very disastrous towards your lash extensions. The oil and alcohol that is found within these beauty products causes the lash adhesive to start to break down causing your lash extensions to fall out.

Try to keep shampoo and other hair products away from your lashes. Don't worry this is easy! All you have to do is tilt your head back and wash all of the product out.

Tip: Make sure your hair products are oil free.

Never ever use mascara with your lash extensions, there's no point! Applying mascara will tug at the lash glue with will damage the lash bonding.

Pick at your lashes, rub or pull them

If you pick at your lashes and mess with them this will cause not only your lash extension to fall out but also your natural lashes. If there is an uncomfortable sensation just use your lash brush to brush through them.

Sleep on your stomach

If you sleep on your stomach you will squish your lashes which will cause your lashes to fall out. It is always best to sleep on your back when you have lash extensions.
