Maintaining GirlGotLashes during wear couldn't be easier! Unlike extensions from a typical lash studio, our extensions don't need to be cleaned with special shampoo. You'll be glad to know that you can skip this step since our lashes are designed for a week's use at a time. After a week, for hygiene reasons, we recommend applying a new set of extensions instead of simply cleaning and recycling your current ones. Opting for a new set guarantees a fresh, fluffy, and fabulous result!
~ Here are a few pointers to keep your lashes looking fabulous for the full week ~
Avoid exposing your extensions to warm water whenever possible. Fortunately, this is easily managed! During showers or hair washing, simply tilt your head back to prevent warm water from getting into your eyes. In case it does, no worries. Allow your extensions to air-dry (avoid patting them dry!) to ensure the adhesive stays strong.
For daily face washing, simply maneuver around the lash area. Just close your eyes, cleanse the lower face, then the upper, and delicately clean around your eyes - you'll get the hang of it in no time!
Fan of eye shadow, eyeliner, or kohl? Again, no worries! You can still use your iconic pieces with lash extensions in. When it's time to remove your makeup, use a gentle baby wipe or makeup remover around your eyes before cleansing your face as usual.
Aim to keep your eyeshadow/powder away from your lashes, but if it does happens (these things do), grab a spoolie or a clean mascara brush. Dampen it slightly with cold running water, then gently brush through your lashes for that fresh look once more.
As you can see, GirlGotLashes extensions require hardly any care during wear, and they're not time-consuming at all.
When you want to remove the extensions, apply LET IT GO Remover liquid on and around your extensions, and let it sit briefly (20-30 seconds is enough). Gently brush the extensions off your lashes or slide them downwards with your fingers. After removing your extensions, you can easily comb out any residue glue from your natural lashes using the fine micro-brush.
This process will remove the extensions without pulling out your natural lashes. If you happen to spot a natural lash among the removed extensions, don't worry. We naturally shed between 4-8 lashes every day and, when you're wearing extensions, these have nowhere to properly fall!
Pro Tip: After removal, be sure to thoroughly wash off the coconut oil as it can clog pores (especially for oily skin types). Nonetheless, coconut oil works wonders for your lashes! We suggest giving your natural lashes a little T.L.C. between sets: grab your spoolie and gently apply a small amount of coconut oil for an overnight nourishing treatment.
