Aftercare – Eyelash Extensions

Now that you have your beautiful extensions, you will need to follow some simple aftercare rules to keep them looking their best. Remember, just like nails, your natural lashes grow, so they will need a maintenance appointment after a few weeks – that’s if you wish to keep them looking their best. At an infill we replace the extensions that naturally shed with your natural lashes. Humans shed approximately 3 eyelashes per upper lid, per eye per day.


We apply approximately 100 extensions to each eye, so after 7 days you will lose 21 extensions, 14 days 42 extensions, 21 days 63 extensions. Eyelash adhesive actually takes 24 hours to completely cure, so the first 24 hours are the most important time to ensure that your lashes will last


Do not get your extensions wet for the first 24 hours - exposing your new extensions to any moisture such as steam, high humidity, water and even heat, will result in the lash glue over- curing, becoming brittle and your extensions will fall off within a few days.

  • Please keep your extensions clean - clean them gently and daily with a designated lash cleanser.

  • Keep oil based products away from your extensions and limit the use on your face.

  • Do not pick or pull at your extensions.

  • Do not sleep on your face as “face planting” in your pillow will damage your extensions

  • Brush your extensions throughout the day to keep them looking neat and tidy.


During the spring and autumn, humans experience natural lash sheds. Just like animals, we shed hair from all over our bodies – including our lashes. At these times of year you may find your lashes do not last as long because of this natural shed. After a few weeks our bodies do calm down, so do not be alarmed. Lashes also grow in cycles – the average cycle is usually 9- 12 weeks. This means that the amount of lashes you have week after week will vary depending on what stage of your lash cycle you are in. Some weeks your lashes will look fuller than others, and some weeks your retention will be better.


If you wish to maintain your extensions, then please return for your infill within 3 weeks, and with at least 50% of your set remaining. After 3 weeks you may be charged additionally for the extra work needed, or may require a full set again.
