Lash & go -

 

​These days with the modern lash systems we use there is no need to avoid moisture, oil, or heat on your lashes. Once our work is completed your lashes are fully set and you are ready to go.

Keep your lashes clean and promote good optical hygiene by washing your lashes daily. Using just a microfibre lash cloth and lash wash with some warm water - clean lashes will last longer. (These products are available to buy in the salon)

Do not fiddle with your extensions, and absolutely do not pick them - doing this will risk damaging your natural lashes.

Do not use lash curlers to curl them - as they will put stress on the bonds. If you would like them more or less curled - we can make adjustments to the curls used at your next infill.

To keep your lashes looking fluffy and aligned, you need only roll them through from above using the lash wand provided.  Don’t worry about losing a few lashes when you do this, as it will merely be lashes which are shedding naturally as they reach the end of their lifecycle. Grooming them through will fluff open the lash fans and keep your lashes looking neat.

Keep any products containing glycol, alcohol, or ethanol away from your extensions as these are the few ingredients that can adversely affect the lash bonds.

Your lashes should feel completely comfortable straight away. If you experience any discomfort or irritation to your eyes or eyelids within the first few days of having your lashes done, you should contact the salon immediately so that we can take a look at them for you.

Natural eyelash cycle.

 

This is the length of time any given eyelash takes to fall out. This is one issue that cannot be changed; no matter how well the extended lash is applied, if a customer's natural lash is at the end of its cycle, then both it and the extended lash will shed.

 

Hair grows in cycles, and each cycle has three phases – growth (anagen), transition (catagen), and resting (telogen). Hair only grows during the first phase and then it transitions and 'rests' until it falls out. The duration of each phase differs depending on hair's location on the body; for example, the hair on your head has a much longer growth phase than your eyelashes do, which is why the hair on your head can grow to great lengths, while your eyelashes grow only a relatively short length. Once your eyelashes stop growing, they transition to the resting phase where they remain until falling out. While the eyelash is resting, the growth cycle starts again from the same follicle and a new eyelash pushes the old one out. The cycle is specific to each individual follicle, however, so some of your eyelashes will be growing while others are resting.

This means that eyelashes are continually falling out, causing gaps to appear after time. We, therefore, recommend each customer comes in for in-fills every 3-5 weeks to prolong the quality of the effect of the lashes. Some customers, however, may have a faster growth cycle, meaning they will require in-fill appointments more frequently.
