leaving them conditioned and squeaky-clean. By regularly cleansing their lash extensions with a specially formulated eyelash cleanser, your clients will extend their lash wear and improve the health of their natural lashes. This means you’ll get more time to actually lash during an appointment, rather than spending ten to fifteen minutes cleaning dirty extensions. Talk about a win-win!
Picture the end of the average lash appointment – your client has experienced your beautifully clean salon and is admiring their gorgeous, new, safely-applied lash extensions. Hopefully, this is the time that a client will ask how to clean and care for their lashes – and if not, it’s time to lay some wisdom down about lash aftercare. It’s important to explain how aftercare works, but I think it’s equally key educate your clients about exactly why cleansing their lashes is such a game changer. Here’s the lowdown: skin oils, eye makeup, foundation and everyday grime are caught in your lashes and build up. This happens with all hair follicles, including the ones on your head – this is why we use shampoo so religiously! If you don’t wash your lashes, this lash buildup can form a crust which blocks hair follicles and causes a lot of itching and just plain discomfort. If left unchecked, lash grime can even lead to blepharitis, an irritable inflammation of the lash duct that causes crusty eyelids and watery eyes. Blepharitis is a chronic condition and often results in eyelash growth problems – every lash lover’s worst nightmare! If your client spends five minutes every few days cleansing their lashes, all this can be so easily avoided.
So how do you ensure that your clients are enjoying happy, healthy lashes long-term? and fits easily into an everyday cleansing routine. All you have to do is dispense the foamy cleansing solution into your hand and gently brush it through your lashes using the handy cleansing brush. Splash your face with water and you’re done! Once a client starts a lash cleansing routine, you’ll be able to see the difference during the very next infill – brace yourself for clean, clear lashes and improved retention. Bring it on!
