Thank You for choosing I Heart Lashes! To best help you enjoy your new lash extensions as long as possible, we recommend you follow these essential aftercare information and advice to ensure your lashes not only remain gorgeous but remains healthy!

After your appointment: Tips!

  • Following your eyelash extension treatment, TRY to avoid washing your face with hot water or getting your lashes wet for a minimum of 12-24 hours. Very hard we know! but by doing so, this allows the adhesive glue to properly settle and bond to your dry eyelashes. Furthermore refrain from going for a swim, getting exposure to bath steam, sauna or undertake any strenuous activities that may cause your eyes to become in contact with water. After the minimum time frame has passed, all normal activities can be resumed.
  • Do not use regular or waterproof mascara as these products contain oily substances that may cause the adhesive glue to weaken and in turn, cause your eyelash extensions to fall off. Similarly, removing mascara after such application can result in your lashes falling off.
  • When cleaning your face, special care should be taken to avoid rubbing or scrubbing your eyes. Gently cleanse the eye area and always pat the lashes dry after such application. Avoid using oil-based products (such as make-up removers) around the eyes as these contain properties that may weaken the adhesive glue and cause the lashes to fall off. Unless necessary, use water-based products to remove make-up.
  • Do not attempt to perm or use any eyelash curlers on your lashes. This will not only cause damage to your extensions but may adversely damage your natural eyelashes.
  • Do not attempt to remove the lash extensions yourself as this will cause damage to your natural eyelashes.

Maintenance & looking gorgeous

Just like all things, lash extensions have a lifespan! Generally speaking (depending on how well you look after them), lash extensions will typically last up to 4 weeks. During this time you will notice your extensions gradually and naturally shred as a new cycle of natural lashes will begin to grow. Do not be alarmed if this occurs as its completely normal! as every hair on our bodies follow a natural growth cycle.

To keep your lashes looking beautiful indefinitely, we recommend you schedule an appointment with us every 2-3 weeks to have an ‘infill’ applied. An infill procedure basically adds extra individual extensions to places where your natural lashes has grown – by consistently ‘topping up’ ensures you maintain a fabulous full and luscious set of addictive lashes.
