The truth of the matter is, the cleaner your lashes are, the longer they will last! Some people are afraid to get their lashes wet, but that is the best thing for them! The fear is that, if you wash them, they will fall out faster & that is false! When you wash your lashes you may see 1 or 2 fall, but those were going to fall out anyway! You did not make them fall faster by cleansing your lashes! People who regularly wash their lashes are the ones who return to their lash fill with a greater retention than the ones who don’t! Dead skin cells, oil, make up, and dirt will build-up on your lash line. You may not be able to see it, but it’s there! All of the build-up on your lashes eats away at your lash extensions adhesive & over time weakens the bond resulting in your lash extensions falling out sooner than they should.
A large buildup of dirt on your lash line is not good for your eyelash extensions, but it also isn’t good for your natural lashes. All of that bacteria buildup on your lash line will block your lash hair follicle aka your papilla duct, & your natural lashes will not be able to grow in their natural cycle. This is not healthy for your lashes or your eyes and can lead to eye infections, red eyes, bacterial infections, dry eyes, and itchiness.
Just remember: you would rather see 1 or 2 lashes fall while you clean them, then see 10 fall because you didn’t! Washing your lash extensions leads to cleaner, happier, & healthier lashes!
