To The Lash Clients Who Don't Clean Their Lashes!
Clean Lashes = Longer Lasting Lashes Proven fact that cleaning your lash extensions helps improve your long-term retention. Wash your lashes using a lash-safe eyelash extension cleanser. Using the proper lash cleanser and a cleansing brush is so important. Q tips, cotton balls or swaps are harsher on the lash extensions, so stay away from those. Borboleta Beauty sells the preferred lash cleanser but you can also find a OIL-FREE cleanser at your local Target, CVS, Walmart, etc.
Eyelash Extensions Can Get Wet! It’s a common myth that lash extensions cannot get wet. For whatever reason, lash clients think that if they get any water on their lashes that it will ruin the integrity of the adhesive bond. False. You can still shower as you normally do and a little water never hurt a lash.
Prevent Infections! Part of the job of your natural lashes is to prevent bacteria from getting into your eyes. Once applied, lash extensions perform that same task. Only here’s the difference, if you’re not washing your lash extensions what happens to the bacteria your eyes pick up every day?
That’s right. Bacteria will start to build upon your extensions! Yes, it is gross, but you can do something about it!
Stronger Adhesive Bond Have you ever tried to stick a dirty sticker or piece of tape onto something? Does it work? Maybe for like a second. Apply any pressure to it and it pops right off!
Dirty lashes and adhesive works the same way. Adhesive can only do so much when the lashes are dirty or covered in makeup residue. Give the adhesive its best chance and a strong bond by cleaning your lashes DAILY!!
