Waking up every day with beautiful, full-looking eyes sounds like a dream come true - especially if they don’t require any additional effort or product after getting them done by professionals. The downside? They might not last as long (though this really depends). You may also find yourself paying more money than expected because upkeep appointments go beyond just touch-ups; many people book monthly touch-ups. No different than getting your manicure every month.
What are eyelash extensions?
In the beauty industry, eyelash extensions are all the rage. They're semipermanent and hand-glued to your natural lashes. The most amazing thing about these beautifying lashes is that they can be customized for every women's individual style.
How long do eyelash extensions last?
Your natural eyelash growth cycle is about 175 days, and as they age the lash extension falls off, with them. Proper care of your extension includes replacing the extensions that fall out with a new one to fill in the gaps. This means that your extensions can last for quite some time!

Do eyelash extensions ruin your natural lashes?
When people think of eyelash extensions, they often imagine long luscious lashes that will last for weeks.

But don’t stress—this isn't common.

Can I shower with my eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions feel just like your natural lashes, but don’t quite function like your natural lashes. Let me explain. Soon after your eyelash enhancement treatment, you’ll have to wait 24 hours before water can touch your eyelashes. Eyelash extension adhesives require time to cure. This means the adhesive needs time to dry thoroughly to bond the lash extension with your natural lashes. During this 24hr period, you must be gentle with your eyes and not allow water to touch them. After the 24 hour curing period you may shower as normal. Just be sure to be gentle around your eyes.
Can you put mascara on eyelash extensions?
The whole premise of enhancing your eyes with eyelash extension is to eliminate the need for wearing mascara to get big, bold beautiful eyelashes. It is highly not recommended to wear mascara over eyelash extensions. For one, when you attempt to clean the mascara off of your lashes you will run the high risk of tearing the lash extension off along with your natural lash. Tearing of your natural lash prematurely will cause traction alopecia.
Can you wash your eyes with eyelash extensions?
As noted before, you’re going to want to wait for 24hrs before any form of liquid touches your brand-new eyelashes. This is due to the curing process of the adhesive to the natural lash. The bond must be complete before any water touches the lash. After 24 hours proper care of your eyelash extension includes a daily cleansing. For this, you must use extension-friendly products. These products consist of a foam-like cleaner and a soft brush.
Should you brush your lash extensions?
Lashes can get tangled when you're sleeping or showering, so it's required that you gently brush your lashes with a clean spoolie brush before bed and at the end of each day. To prevent unnecessary tangling, try to sleep on your back or side (not your stomach) and use a silk pillowcase- which is gentler for extensions!
