So how can I make my eyelash extensions last longer?

Now that you have a set of stunning extensions applied to your eyelashes, you may be thinking to yourself “How can I make my eyelash extensions last longer?”  

Think of eyelash extensions as an investment - you just spent money and time to get these beautiful eyelash extensions. You’ll definitely want to put in the extra effort to upkeep and maintain these delicate beauties.

It’s no rumor that taking care of your lashes is extremely beneficial.  If you are new to the lash world and don’t know where to start, Salty Lash can assist you with maintaining your lashes and the look you want.

Stay away from water the first 48 hours

Water is your enemy the first 48 hours after an application! When your extensions are first applied, your lash artist will most likely remind you to avoid water.  

Avoid showering and physical activity for at least a full 24 hours in order to ensure your lash glue has dried properly. If your extensions are exposed to water during this time period - the glue bond can be weakened and your lash life will be shortened.

Clean and brush daily!

The best way to extend your lash life is to keep them clean! Giving your lashes their required daily TLC will help them last in between appointments. 

Your lash artist will most likely give you a clean spoolie after every appointment. If you’re like me, you may end up having a spoolie almost everywhere like your purse, car, or bathroom!

I love this pack from Amazon - the price and quality can't be beat! Looking for more lash extension product faves? Everything is linked here!

Are you wondering about ways to keep your lashes clean? Salty Lash brings you three key, easy simple steps to help guide you!

  • Use an oil-free and alcohol-free eyewash that is specifically used for eyelashes (baby shampoo and water mixed together is great substitute if you can’t get your hands on lash cleanser)
  • Avoid picking and pulling at your extensions.  Use a dry, clean eyelash spoolie to brush your extensions.
  • Rinse off the cleaner and any makeup residue with clean water. 

Eyelash extensions may seem like a lot of maintenance, but adding this extra step to your day to day routine will only take up a few extra minutes!

Make sure to brush your eyelash extensions every morning. Why in the morning? When you’re sleeping your lashes can be prone to entanglement. The secret to upkeep your extensions is simple - just brush them! For sleeping, substitute that old pillowcase with a silk one! 

Use lash friendly products

Not all beauty products will get along with your extensions. Avoid any oil or alcohol based products that are applied to your face. That can include waterproof mascara all the way to certain facial moisturizers.

Spend the extra time to ensure the products you use daily won’t interfere with your lashes! My favorite lash friendly products are linked here!

Don’t forget to book your fills!

Overall, the best way to take care of your extensions is to keep up with your fill appointments. Salty Lash offers mini-fills and fill appointments - whatever you need, we got your back.  

When you book an appointment for a touch up, new extensions are added to replace the fullness and give you that fresh lash look.  When you book regularly, your lash artist will ensure a full, fresh, and camera ready look for you.
