One way to bring out the beauty of one’s eyes is to invest in long full eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions will give your eyes a naturally feminine look that will accentuate the raw beauty of your eyes. However, if you have not had this procedure done before, there are a few things you need to know.

To ensure that you will experience the full benefits of eyelash extensions, it pays to know how to take care of them properly. This blog post will talk about what to expect when you get these lash accessories and how to make your beautiful lashes last as long as possible.

Important Eyelash Extension Dos and Don’ts for First-Timers

In your excitement to get eyelash extensions, here are some of the most essential need-to-know dos and don’t about the immediate aftercare of your extensions.


1 - Do Understand That It Is a Commitment

Getting eyelash extensions is a long-term commitment. After getting your initial extensions placed, you will need to come in to get a refill to maintain the fullness of your lashes. Keep in mind that as your natural lashes shed, the extensions will fall off as well.

2 - Do Buy Eyelash Serum

Eyelash serum will help your lashes grow naturally and healthily. The fuller your extensions, the more serum you may need to apply.

3 - Do Clean Your Lashes

Cleaning your lash extensions at least every other day will help them stay on and prevent premature fallout. Dust and other debris may fall on lashes, so they need to be washed once in a while.

4 - Do Dry Them Well

Ensure that after cleaning your lashes or having a shower or bath, you pat your lashes dry. Any excess moisture may cause the adhesive to weaken, causing the lashes to fall out.


1 - Don’t Rub Your Eyes!

Rubbing your eyes is the number one nemesis of false eyelashes! Rubbing, picking, or pulling your lashes may cause them to fall out, leaving you with an unsightly bald spot.

2 - Don’t Use Eyelash Curlers

Lash curlers have the knack of pulling off your natural lashes. They will also pull off the extensions if you are not careful. This is why it is best to stay away from eyelash curlers at all costs. Your extensions will already be styled, so there is no need to use any styling tools on them.

3 - Don’t Get Them Wet for the First 24 Hours

Keep your eyelash extensions away from moisture, especially for the first 24 hours after they had been applied. It is best to avoid activities that make you sweat for the first two hours, like exercising and going to the gym. Only attempt to clean your lashes after at least one day after the initial application.


One bonus “DO” is to ask questions before leaving the eyelash salon. Getting all your questions out of the way will ensure that you will know exactly what needs to be done to make your eyelash extensions last for the maximum amount of time. Also, selecting a reliable eyelash extension salon will go a long way in terms of the quality of your extensions.
