Lash Aftercare

Updated: Jun 27, 2019

Now that you have your beautiful eyelash extensions, you will need to follow some simple aftercare rules to keep them looking their best.

Remember, just like nails, your eyelashes grow! They will need a maintenance appointment after a few weeks - that's if you wish to keep them looking their best.


During a fill we replace the extensions that naturally shed with your natural lashes.

Humans shed approximately 3 upper lashes per lid, per day. We apply approximately 100 lashes extensions to each eye, so after 7 days you will lose 21 extensions, 14 days 42 extensions, 21days 63 extensions.


Eyelash adhesive actually takes 24 hours to completely cure, so the first 24 hours 

are the most important time to ensure 

that your lashes will last.


  • Do not get your extensions wet for the first 24 hours. Exposing your new extensions to any moisture such as steam, high humidity water and event heat; will result in the lash glue over curing, and becoming brittle. Your extensions will fall off within a few days.

  • Please keep your extensions clean- clean them gently and every 3 days with a designated lash cleanser.

  • Keep oil based products away from your extensions and limit the use on your face.

  • Do not pick or pull at your extensions.

  • Do not sleep on your face, as “face planting” in your pillow will damage your extension.

  • Brush your extensions  throughout the day to keep them looking neat and tidy.

During the spring and autumn, humans experience natural lash sheds. Just like animals, we shed hair from all over our bodies – including our lashes. At these times of year you may find your lashes do not last as long because of this natural shed. After a few weeks our bodies do calm down, so do not be alarmed. 


Lashes also grow in cycles – the average cycle is usually 9-12 weeks. This means that the amount of lashes you have week after week will vary depending on what stage of your lash cycle you are in. Some weeks your lashes will look fuller than others, and some weeks your retention will be better.


If you wish to maintain your extensions, then please return for your fill within 3 weeks, and with at least 50% of your set remaining. 


After 3 weeks you may be charged additionally for the fill.
