The 3 Step Aftercare Program for your Eyelash Extensions that LashDesign Studios Melbourne swears by.
At LashDesign we have heard so many different ways to look after your eyelash extensions, some crazier than others. The one that stands out to us as one of the craziest is “to wear goggles in the shower and to avoid getting any water on your lashes… EVER”. If you prefer your eyelashes to look extremely oil damaged and clump together then continue to pop your goggles on when entering the shower. BUT if you prefer to have your lashes looking like you’ve just had them applied continue to read the correct way to look after your investment.
3 words that every woman with eyelash extensions should remember…
PROTECT PROLONG AND MAINTAIN
PROTECT Your natural growth cycle and reduce extension loss and clumping by avoiding oil based products, glycerine, glycerol and essence. Make sure you are checking all your products for these ingredients. Although that “Oil free” cleanser may state on the front that it does not have oil, 9 times out of 10 it in fact does have those ingredients in it. Keep your extensions dry for the first 24 hours after application.
PROLONG Your extension life in optimum condition by using Prolong Lash Oil Free Cleanser to remove make-up, oil residue, dead skin cells and debris from extensions. It has been proven that by using the Prolong Lash Cleanser you will come back with at least 50% of your extensions at refill time.
MAINTAIN Your extensions, reduce pulling at your natural lashes, use a hair dryer to dry, untangle and shape extensions. Schedule refill at 2-3 weeks to maintain optimum lash effect. By following this simple 3 step aftercare program you will not only protect your investment but your lashes will continue to look fresh all the way up to your next refill appointment.
We put one of our girls to the test to prove that Prolong Lash Cleanser is the best way to cleanse your eyelashes. With clear results of what oil does to your eyelash extensions.
What is the difference between the types of eyelash extensions? One of the most common questions we get asked here at LashDesign, Melbourne. For majority of our loyal clients they would surely know what the difference is and what they prefer. But for those of you that don’t know or that are new to the eyelash scene here you go.
Acrylic Eyelash Extensions – The original, firmest and most dramatic. Think Kim Kardashian. A coarser lash made out of acrylic that will give you a bolder look. The toughness of the acrylic really accentuates the black pigment. Acrylic lashes were the original type of lash and very popular until the silk came along. While they come in a wide variety of thicknesses and curls, and can be applied to look very natural, these are most popular with ladies wanting a more dramatic look. They hold their curl extremely well due to their firmness.
Silk Eyelash Extensions – The one that introduced softness. They are soft to the touch and are by far the most popular among the more natural woman. Think Chyka Keebaugh from the Real Housewives of Melbourne who is one of LashDesigns VIP clients and absolutely loves the silk lashes. They can be made to look very natural or very glamorous depending on the amount of lashes applied per eye. Because they are lighter weight, they are often a much better option for your lashes if your own ones are weak or fine.
Mink Eyelash Extensions They are the most natural looking lash you can get. A real natural fibre from the mink’s tail. Most people love mink lashes because they are not as heavy and people can’t tell you have eyelash extensions on. Which most ladies with eyelash extensions are having them applied to enhance their natural lashes. They are so light and fine, they feel exactly like your own lashes with a very subtle curl. An alternative option to the mink lashes would be the Russian 3D Volume lashes as they are a lighter weight lash.
LashDesign Melbourne prefers the eyelash fibers that are manmade rather than coming from a living creature.
