Cleaning Eyelash Extensions

To all the clients out there who wear mascara on their ELE... you must know how to clean your lashes in order to prevent infections and to assist with general ELE hygiene. 

A great way to care for your natural lashes as well as your ELE is to wash them in a warm water solution of baby shampoo and water mix. Another great idea is to purchase one of our Foamy Bottles to put the water and shampoo mix in so that it foams up perfectly where ever you are. 
These can be brought here: Foamy Bottles or check out the website at www.hypnoticlashes.com under accessories.

Take you Foamy Bottle and mix:
1 part baby shampoo (no tears)
3 parts Water 
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

Wash your ELE's daily with upward strokes letting the foamy soap clean between your lashes and getting rid of any buildup. Rinse well with warm water. When drying your eyes make sure you are not too rough with the ELE's and do not use any materials that will get caught in your ELE's such as cotton pads or furry cotton buds. You are best to use a towel that has no loose threads and gently pat your eyes dry ensuring nothing gets caught on the lashes. 

If your lashes are tangled or crossed over, use the Spoolie given to you at your appointment to gently brush them straight and put them in place. In between fills if you feel that they are crossing over, you can  purchase a longer life coating to use on the lashes to keep them in place. 

If you find that you still need to use mascara ensure that it is a water based mascara and that you are removing all traces of make up each time it is worn. This also aides in preventing infections and extends the longevity of the ELE's.
