Once you have eyelash extensions, caring for them properly is very important.
Daily cleansing is essential because eyelashes protect your eyes from dust, debris, pollen, pollutants, mold spores, and all other environmental debris. When you have eyelash extensions, your protection is essentially being doubled, hence they are likely to collect even more debris. If debris is allowed to build up on the extensions, your eyes are going to feel irritated, itchy, and uncomfortable.
Always make sure you use a cleanser and conditioner that is carbonate and glycol-free–which are often found in oil-free makeup removers–they can break down the lash adhesive.
Another beneficial step is brushing or combing your lashes. This will greatly reduce the potential of tangling and twisting of the longer extensions. Without brushing, it will cause tension on the twist and tangle of the natural lashes and could cause premature shedding.
cleanLASH by NovaLash. This product is a 3 in 1 conditioner, cleanser, and makeup remover. The pads within this jar are tightly woven so when they are swiped over an extension it will not get caught and cause damage. Using anything like a q-tip or cotton swab can catch onto the extensions and cause it to shed prematurely or the fibers will be caught in between the extensions.
