How to shower with eyelash extensions?

Here are a few tips and tricks on how to shower with eyelash extensions. You should not shampoo your hair for 24 hours, use an oil-free makeup remover before showering, remove lash extensions before taking a bath or going in the pool, pat dry instead of rubbing with a towel, and do not put too much water on top when washing your face.

 

Things to keep in mind while showering with your eyelash extensions

1. Do not shampoo your hair for 24 hours

It is advised to wait at least 24 hours to wash your hair after getting eyelash extensions or you will risk having the shampoo ruin all of your hard work. You can use dry shampoo instead of washing your hair.

2. Towel-off instead of rub-dry

You should not rub the eyelash extensions with a towel because this could cause them to fall out or damage the adhesive on the lash band and it will be more difficult for you to remove makeup as well.

Instead, simply blot your face by using a damp washcloth or a towel to gently rub and absorb the water.

3. Use oil-free makeup remover before showering

Oil from your skin can get into the adhesive on your extensions, making it harder for them to stay in place.

This is why you should use an oil-free makeup remover before taking a shower or washing your face so that these products won’t make it difficult to remove your makeup.

4. Remove lash extensions before taking a bath

It is best if you do not take baths with your eyelash extensions because the water could seep underneath and loosen them from their adhesive band, which can lead to removing lashes by accident or cause damage in other ways.

Take care when getting in and out of the bath to avoid this.

5. Do not use conditioner

Conditioners can be very heavy, which will weigh down your lashes while they are still wet, causing them to fall off before you have a chance to dry your hair completely.

Try using baby shampoo instead if you want something less harsh on your skin that won’t weigh down your lashes.

6. Pat dry

When you pat dry, it will help to remove excess water and keep the extensions from getting wet any further. This is helpful for maintaining their condition as well as keeping them in place so that they do not fall out or become damaged when drying off with a towel.

7. Use baby powder to dry your face

Baby powder can be a great way to keep the extensions from getting wet. When you pat or rub it all over, it will help remove excess water and prevent them from sliding off of your eyelid while drying off with a towel.

8. Remove eye makeup before showering-

The key is removing any waterproof mascara that may have been used before taking a shower. This is because once it gets wet, the mascara will be impossible to remove.

9. Do not use too much water!

When you are putting your hair up in a towel or even using conditioner, do not put an excessive amount of water on top as this can lead to them becoming damaged and falling off before you have a chance to dry them.

10. Wet them with warm water before turning on cold water

If you want to use a traditional shower head, make sure that it is first running hot water for at least 30 seconds and then turn the water to cold.

If you don’t do this, it could cause your extensions to become damaged and fall off because of the sudden change in temperature from one side of the head to another.

11. Fold hair up before taking a shower

Make sure that all loose strands are folded over or tucked underneath so they do not get wet and affect the adhesive of your extensions.

 

Why is it important to be careful while showering with eyelash extensions?

When you take a shower with eyelash extensions, it’s important to keep them in good condition so they can stay on your lashes for as long as possible.

When not careful when showering, this could cause the following –

1. Shampoo and other products from getting into the adhesive

This can result in the extensions becoming loose and falling off before they are fully dried.

2. Conditioner

Conditioners can be very heavy, which will weigh down your lashes while they are still wet, causing them to fall off before you have a chance to dry your hair completely.

Try using baby shampoo instead if you want something less harsh on your skin that won’t weigh down your lashes.

3. Extensions coming loose or falling out due to the sudden change in temperature

When you use a traditional shower head, make sure that it is first running hot water for at least 30 seconds and then turn the water to cold.

If not taken care of properly, this could cause your extensions to become damaged and fall off because of the sudden change in temperature from one side of the head to another.
