Shampoo Your Lash Extensions to Make Them Last
You love your lash extensions. They make you feel fabulous and help you take your look to the next level. But there's one downside to lash extensions: They can be high-maintenance. In order to keep your lash extensions looking their best, you need to perform regular cleansing and upkeep.
Here's a step-by-step guide on how to cleanse your lash extensions and keep them looking gorgeous.
Step 1: Remove all makeup from your eyes before cleansing. Use a gentle, oil-free eye makeup remover on a cotton pad to remove all traces of mascara, shadow, and liner. This will help prevent any buildup on your lash extensions.
Step 2: Time to cleanser! Gently massage a lash extension-safe cleanser into your lashes with your fingertips or a soft bristle brush. Be careful not to get the cleanser directly in your eyes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
We recommend doing this at least once per week, but you can do it more often if you wear a lot of eye makeup or if you live in a big city full of smog and pollution (looking at you, Los Angeles!).
Step 3: Brush those babies out! Use a clean, soft bristle brush to gently brush out your lashes after cleansing and conditioning them. This will help them stay nice and neat and prevent any tangles or clumps.
Step 4: Let them air dry or use a blow dryer on the cool setting to dry them completely before going to bed. Sleeping with wet lash extensions is a recipe for disaster—they'll end up sticking together.
And that's it! By following these simple steps, you can keep your lash extensions looking their best for weeks. Just remember: The key is to be gentle! Treat your lash extensions with care and they'll treat you right back.
By following these simple cleansing steps once per week, you can prolong the life of your lash extensions. Now which lash shampoo should you buy? That's a great question! We tested them and decided that the following are our favorites. Tap the button to see the short list!
