While lash extensions are a great way to improve the look of your natural lashes without spending hours in front of the mirror each morning, it’s important that you give them the proper care and attention they need. In part one of this two-part series, we talked about a couple of mistakes people often make with their eyelash extensions. As we continue with part two of our series, we will discuss a few more mistakes you should avoid once you finally receive your lash extensions.

Mistake #3: Exposing Your Lashes to Water Too Soon After Your Appointment

One of the biggest selling points for lash extensions is that you go about your normal daily routine without worrying about your mascara running or your lashes falling off. Once your lash extensions have had plenty of time to dry, you can sleep in them, exercise, and even go swimming. However, it’s vital that you give your lashes the necessary time to adhere fully to your normal lashes before you can go about your normal routine. In our previous post, we mentioned that one common mistake is not listening to the instructions laid out by your lash artist, and one of the instructions they will give you is to avoid water for 24 to 48 hours after your lash extensions are applied. During the process, your lash artist will apply the extensions to your natural lashes using a special adhesive. This adhesive will need time to dry, and exposing your lashes to water, steam, or sweat too soon can cause the adhesive to dry improperly and may even cost you a few lash extensions. With that in mind, if you want your lash extensions to look their best, then it’s a good idea to follow instructions and avoid water until you can be sure that the adhesive is fully dry.

Mistake #4: Failing to Maintain Your Lashes

You may be under the impression that once you’ve received your lash extensions, you can just leave them and let them do their own thing until it’s time for your relashing appointment. However, there are a few things you will need to do to ensure your lash extensions continuously look their best. For example, as you sleep at night, your lashes may become tangled. Therefore, it’s important that you take the time to gently comb out your lashes in the morning using a special comb. This will help them last longer and look their best day after day. If you have any questions about how to make your lashes last as long as possible, be sure to ask your lash artist during your initial appointment.
