Sassi Eyelash Extension in Silk Mink Sable

Summer is finally here, and you'll find us by the pool or beach. With so much time by the water, we're opting for eyelash extensions all summer long. So here are some tips to take care of them, so they last as long as possible.

Be patient

We know you want to flaunt your lashes as soon as you step out of the salon, but don’t go too crazy. While your eyelash glue may seem dry, it is still curing. Its holding power is much more durable if you don’t let it get wet for 6 hours after the treatment. Better yet – hold off on the swimming pool, sauna, or beach for about 3 days. We know it’s hard, but those lashes will stay longer for it.

Keep them tidy

Yes – even lashes are getting Marie Kondo-ed…Kinda. After you shower or wash your face, you’ll notice your lashes may kink. Brush them with a disposable spoolie (or clean mascara wand) to keep it straight. 

Use the right makeup

Choose oil-free cleanser and makeup. Oil breaks down the eyelash adhesive, which may cause your extensions to fall out prematurely. That means waterproof eyeliner and mascara are also out of the rotation because they require oil cleansers to remove. Make sure to use eyelash extension safe eye makeup, and if you do swipe mascara, start from the middle to the end and try a lighter coat.

Don’t touch the eyelash curler!

Standard eyelash curlers are too aggressive to be used with your eyelash extensions. Instead, consult with your lash stylist on what style of lashes you would like. We suggest a C curl for effortlessly curled lashes or D curl for an extra lifted look.

Seal it up

Use a lash coating or sealant to protect your extensions from dust, dirt, and sweat. A bit runnier than mascara, it's usually clear to make your extensions look glossy. Use it every morning when you apply your makeup for longer extension wear.

Give your lashes TLC

What we mean by that is try to avoid rough handling of your lashes. Excessive rubbing of the eyes or pulling at the extensions can remove your natural lashes and even damage them. Consult your lash technician to safely remove the extensions.

Don’t sweat it!

You might notice a few lashes falling off every day. Don’t worry – your natural lash cycle sheds a few hairs every day. It’s just more noticeable when your lashes are longer, thicker, and more curled than your natural lashes!
