The Lash Extension Aftercare Guide

This comprehensive guide will walk you through everything you need to know about caring for your lash extensions after the application.
Follow These 10 Tips to Proper Eyelash Extension Aftercare
1. Avoid Wetting Your Lashes for the First 24 Hours
During this initial period, it's essential to keep your lashes dry. Water can weaken the lash adhesive while it's still curing.
Avoid hot showers, steam rooms, swimming, or intense workouts that may cause excessive sweating.
2. Gently Cleanse Your Lashes Regularly
After the initial 24 hours, cleanse your lashes daily using a lash extension-safe cleanser. These cleansers are designed not to weaken the adhesive.
Use a soft, lint-free brush or applicator to clean between the lashes, removing debris, makeup, and natural oils.
Be gentle while cleansing; excessive rubbing or pulling can damage both your natural lashes and extensions.
3. Say No to Oil-Based Product
Avoid oil-based makeup removers, cleansers, and skincare products near your eye area. Oil can break down the lash adhesive, causing extensions to fall out prematurely.
Opt for oil-free, water-based products instead.
4. Mind Your Mascara and Eyeliner
Most lash extensions provide a voluminous, mascara-like effect, so additional mascara is often unnecessary. If you must use mascara, choose a water-based, extension-safe formula and apply it only to the tips, avoiding the lash base.
Put mascara on the BOTTOM LASHES ONLY; not the tips of extensions; and only to use LASH EXTENSION SAFE MASCARA
When using eyeliner, choose a smudge-free, water-based liner. Be gentle when applying to prevent tugging on the extensions.
5. Sleep Smart
Sleeping on your back is the best way to avoid unnecessary friction and lash damage while you sleep.
If you're a side sleeper, consider using a silk or satin pillowcase to minimize friction.
6. Avoid Touching Your Lashes
Refrain from touching, twisting, or playing with your lash extensions. Frequent contact can cause them to tangle or prematurely shed.
7. Regular Lash Fills
Lash extensions naturally shed as your natural lashes go through their growth cycle. To maintain a full look, schedule regular lash fills as recommended by "Lashed by Brooke."
Avoid attempting to remove extensions yourself; this can lead to damage.
8. Protect Your Lashes from Heat and Humidity
Excessive heat and humidity can weaken lash adhesive. Use caution around high-temperature environments like saunas, ovens, or hair dryers.
9. Maintain Overall Lash Health
Proper nutrition and lash serums can promote healthy lash growth, contributing to the longevity of your extensions.
If you experience any irritation, redness, or discomfort, contact "Lashed by Brooke" for guidance and assessment.
