Retention Killers! Make your Lash Extensions Lash Longer

If you're a lash lover, you know that maintaining the perfect set of lash extensions takes effort. After all, you invested time and money into those beautiful lashes from Luxury Lash Beauty, and you want them to last as long as possible. However, there are certain things that can sabotage your retention and leave you with a sad set of sparse lashes. We like to call these "Retention Killers."

Here are some of the worst retention killers that you should avoid like the plague:

  • Water, Water Everywhere: Lash extensions and water don't mix. If you get your lashes wet too soon after your appointment at Luxury Lash Beauty, the adhesive can weaken and your lashes will fall off faster. So, avoid water at all costs, especially in the first 24-48 hours. No showers, no swimming, and definitely no crying.
  • Rub-a-Dub-Dub: Your lashes are delicate, and rubbing them too hard can cause them to fall off prematurely. So, avoid rubbing your eyes like crazy, and be gentle when you're removing eye makeup. If you need to scratch an itch, use a clean spoolie brush to gently brush the area.
  • Oil Slick: Oil is the enemy of lash extensions. It can break down the adhesive and cause your lashes to fall off faster. So, avoid oily products like eye creams, serums, and makeup removers. If you must use an oil-based product, be sure to use it far away from your lashes.
  • Sleeping Beauty: Sleeping on your face is a big no-no if you want to keep your lash extensions looking their best. When you sleep on your face, you put pressure on your lashes, which can cause them to fall out. So, try to sleep on your back or on your side. If you're a die-hard stomach sleeper, invest in a satin pillowcase to reduce friction.
  • Heat Wave: Heat can also weaken lash adhesive, so avoid heat sources like saunas, hot tubs, and hair dryers. If you must use a hair dryer, use it on the cool setting and keep it far away from your face.
  • Tug-of-War: Lash extensions are not meant to be pulled off, even if they're bothering you. If you have a rogue lash that's poking you in the eye, resist the urge to tug it off. Instead, come in for a professional removal or use a lash serum to encourage it to fall out naturally.

In conclusion, lash extensions are a commitment, and avoiding these retention killers is key to keeping your lashes looking their best for as long as possible. Remember, a little TLC goes a long way when it comes to lash extension retention.
