4 tips to properly and effectively clean eyelash extensions
1. A mild cleanser is a must
To remove the excess oils and build-up on the lash extensions, make sure to tell your client to use a gentle, oil-free cleanser.
It will ensure that they are happy with their lash extensions appearance and increase the lashes' longevity.
2. Brush the lashes
Be sure to instruct your clients to brush their lashes daily with a lash brush. This way, the debris in the lashes is kept from building up over a day. It also helps to keep the lashes in place and avoid lash straggling or clumping. You could even suggest to your clients that they brush their lashes when they brush their teeth. Just another way to show them how this needs to be a DAILY habit to implement for the best results.
3. Absolutely no oil
Your client mustn't use any makeup removers that contain oil when they are cleaning their face. The oil affects the glue by breaking it down, thus causing the lash extension's life to be drastically shortened or worse, detach them immediately from the natural lashes.
Inform your clients that oils can be found in many mascaras, face washes, and makeup removers. So, make sure to tell them to check the ingredients of every product they put on near their eyes before use.
4. Makeup - less is more
Unfortunately, makeup gets easily caught between lashes and can be challenging to clean off. So debris will build up on the lashes and may lead to a premature lash loss.
If your clients are willing to try and hold back on the eye makeup, there will be less intense scrubbing and rubbing of the lashes.
The more your client messes with the lash extensions, the more likely they are to remove lashes accidentally. You might consider telling them to use a lash brush to go through and reset their eyelash extensions giving them a fresh look, in the end, making mascara unnecessary.
