6 Shocking Habits Ruining Your Lash Extensions

Did you know that even with the most meticulous application, everyday habits can drastically reduce the lifespan of your lash extensions? Studies show that up to 50% of clients experience premature lash fallout due to unintentional mistakes in their aftercare routine!


Those luscious, dramatic lashes you adore after your lash appointment deserve some TLC to stay flawless for as long as possible. But let's face it, navigating the world of eyelash extensions can be tricky. Here's the shocking truth: some everyday habits you might not even realize are ruining those missing lashes!


Don't fret! We're here to shed light on these sneaky lash destroyers and empower you with the knowledge to keep your extensions looking fabulous. Keep reading to discover the 6 shocking habits you might be unknowingly guilty of, and learn simple tips to ensure your lashes stay long, luscious, and envy-worthy!


1. YOU DON'T CLEANSE THEM.


Those gorgeous new extensions might tempt you to leave them untouched, but daily cleansing is crucial! Unlike strip lashes, extensions are bonded with a special adhesive that doesn't love natural oils. Daily cleansing with a gentle lash cleanser, like Clean Lash Foaming Cleanser or Novalash Clean Pads, removes these oils and keeps your lashes healthy.


2. SLEEPING ON YOUR FACE.


Side and stomach sleepers, beware! This sleep position can cause friction that loosens and shortens the lifespan of your extensions. Consider using a satin or silk pillowcase to reduce friction, or invest in a specially designed "Beauty Sleep Mask" with moulded eye contours to protect your lashes while you snooze.


3. WAITING TOO LONG BETWEEN FILLS.


Everyone's lash growth cycle is different, so how often you need fills depends on your natural lashes and how you care for them. Generally, refills are needed every 2-6 weeks. Aim to get a fill when around 50% of your extensions have shed – waiting too long might mean there aren't enough lashes left for a full, beautiful set.


4. YOU DON'T COMB YOUR LASHES.


For the fluffiest, most beautiful look, gently comb your lashes daily with a specialized lash comb. Avoid harsh brushing at the base, which can loosen the extensions. Daily combing also helps remove any cleanser residue that might make your lashes appear clumpy.


5. YOU WEAR THE WRONG MAKEUP


Oil-based makeup and waterproof mascara are a no-no for lash extensions. They can loosen the adhesive and shorten their lifespan. Opt for oil-free makeup and water-based mascara specifically formulated for extensions. Avoid eyeliner directly on the lash line, and use eyeshadow as a liner instead. When removing makeup, ditch the cotton pads - they can snag your lashes. Use oil-free makeup remover and a gentle touch.


6. OVEREXPOSURE TO HEAT AND HUMIDITY

Steamy environments like saunas, hot yoga sessions, or even blow-drying your hair too close to your face can negatively impact your lash extensions. The heat can loosen the adhesive or even cause the extensions to straighten or curl at the ends.
