Proper way to care for your lashes...
Nightly conditioning is necessary to maximize the life of the extensions. Novalash's nighttime conditioning/cleansing pads or baby shampoo and coconut oil, are perfect for cleaning the lashes free of any makeup or debris, while moisturizing the lashes to maintain flexibility. Using a lash wand to comb the lashes free of tangles is also recommended.
Mascara is typically not needed with lash extensions. Mascara should only be used when a touch-up is drawing near. Water-soluble mascara can be worn; however, constant use of mascara may shorten the lifespan of lashes. Waterproof mascara is NOT recommended for use, as it will dissolve the bond with the lashes. Novalash glycol and corbonate free mascara is specifically formulated for use on extensions without interfering with the adhesive.
The average person has between 90-120 lashes per eye (upper lid). My goal is to extend all mature lashes on the average eye.
Each eye sheds approximately 2-5 lashes every day! So let's average this to 3 per day. This is what you can expect to shed...
Week 1 = 21 lashes
Week 2 = 42 lashes
Week 3 = 63 lashes
Each fill will be different depending on the lashes I have to work with.
Reasons your lash extensions don't last as long as they should...
You don't cleanse them.
You sleep on your side or stomach.
You don't comb them.
You wear the wrong makeup.
