How to Clean Eyelash Extensions: 4 Tips
Before your client leaves the shop, make sure they are equipped with these tips to clean and maintain their eyelash extensions!
Tip #1: Use Mild Cleanser
It goes without saying, but your client should use a mild cleanser daily to remove excess debris and oils. Bonus points: recommend an oil-free cleanser to help your clients refresh their lashes at home! Overall, with regular maintenance, clients can maximize the life of their lash extensions.
Tip #2: Brush Daily
Brushing eyelash extensions can work wonders for client’s who want to extend the life of their lashes! Daily brushing with a disposable or reusable lash brush can remove any excess debris that gets caught in long lashes throughout the day. In addition, this process can fan out the lashes fixing any clumped and straggling lashes. An easy trick to remind clients to brush their lashes is to brush them at the same time they would brush their hair or teeth.
Tip #3: Avoid Excess Oils
We love natural skincare solutions; however, we’re going to have to pass on the oil cleansing method and other makeup removers and cleansers that use oil to clean out the pores. Ultimately, the oils break down the lash glue used to adhere the extensions to the natural lash. Take the time to warn your clients of hidden oils found in mascara, face washes, and makeup removers.
Tip #4: Scale Back Eye Makeup
One easy trick to keep lashes clean between fills is to scale back eye makeup. This reduces the client’s need to harshly scrub and brush at their extensions. At the end of the day, the less your client has to needlessly come into contact with their lashes, the less likely they are to accidentally remove lashes. Offer your client helpful alternatives to ease their need for eye makeup. For example, instead of mascara, offer a brush to fan out lashes for fresh-faced lashes.
