Getting ready to get eyelash extensions for the first time? Or are you an eyelash enthusiast who’s looking to take better care of your extensions? No matter which camp you fall in, cleaning your eyelash extensions should become an important part of your everyday hygiene routine. Not sure why you should clean your eyelash extensions or how to clean them at home without damaging them? Read on!
Why Clean Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelashes are made of hair, and just like the hair on our head, eyelashes should be regularly cleaned once or twice daily. Cleaning your lash extensions can:
- Help your extensions last longer
- Keep your lashes fluffy and tangle-free
- Maintain the health of your eyes and natural lashes
Has your lash professional advised you not to clean, wash, or touch your lashes? You could be putting your health at risk. Read our blog to learn more about the importance of cleaning eyelash extensions and what to do if your lash professional uses lash extension products that can’t handle regular cleaning.
How To Clean Eyelash Extensions
Step 1: Use cleanLASH to Cleanse The Lash Line
Every night, use cleanLASH to cleanse your lashes and remove makeup and other debris. cleanLASH pads are specifically formulated for use with NovaLash extensions. The specialty pads clean the lash line while moisturising and conditioning your natural lashes and extensions. This helps your extensions stay radiant and flexible – even weeks after your initial appointment.
Step 2: Brush Your Extensions Every Day
Brushing your lashes each morning and night helps your extensions from twisting and tangling. You can use a clean, one-time-use mascara wand – but be sure you use a new one each time you brush your lashes. If you want a more sustainable way to clean your lashes, try the reusable, retractable LASHwand. The brush is more hygienic than other lash wands and can be shampooed to ensure it stays clean.
Step 3: Fill In With Lash Extension-Friendly Products
If you regularly follow steps 1 and 2, your NovaLash extensions can last up to 8 weeks! If you’re due for your next appointment and need to blend your natural lashes with your extensions, try NovaLash’s eyelash extension-friendly mascara or eyeliner. Specifically made for NovaLash eyelash extension products, these cosmetics can help fill in your lash line until you can see your lash professional.
That’s it! In less than 10 minutes a day, you can ensure your eyes and natural lashes stay clean, healthy, and radiant. If you’re ready to take better care of your eyelash extensions, ask your lash professional about NovaLash’s aftercare products or order an aftercare kit online.
