Getting eyelash extensions is one of the options of those who want to get their eye features enhanced especially if they have short and thin eyelashes. Some people also get eyelash extensions if they have events to attend to. Well, it’s really up to you for whatever reason, you can have this service done.
Just keep in mind that before you get eyelash extensions, you have to be ready of what’s to happen after the process and of what you are supposed to do. There are important actions that you must not neglect if you want your eyelash extensions to last beautifully. At the same time, there are wrong moves which you must not even think of doing or else, your eyelash extensions won’t last long and at the same time, there might be some irritations also.
Here is a list of 6 things you MUST NOT DO right after or hours and even days after getting eyelash extensions. There are many others, but these 6 are some of the most likely done RESTRICTIONS. Keep on reading, and take note of how important each one is!
 DON’T PICK AND PULL
The additional eyelashes placed on you are well-made, especially if you select and have yours done by a really excellent eyelash extensions clinic. They use an adhesive specifically used for this purpose, of course, so that the extensions will stick onto your very own natural eyelashes.
While that adhesive used is created for that indeed and is safe to use, still, if you pick, pull and rub your eye area harshly and strongly, your natural eyelashes might get affected. They might fall off together with the artificial ones.
Remember, do not pick and pull your eyelash extensions. In the first place, you had them to thicken your lashes so don’t pick them if you don’t want to lose your own lashes instead. That makes all your efforts wasted.
 DON’T WET
After any chemical hair treatments in a salon, hairdressers advice the clients to not wet their hair after a day or three. It’s because the chemical will easily be washed off without even performing its full work on your hair. This is somehow alike with eyelash extensions. You should not let water get in contact with your eyelashes.
If you’re going to wash your face, be very careful with the eye area. The water weakens the glue which causes your eyelash extensions to last not too long but falls off. After a day or as advised to you, then it will be safer to do so.
 DON’T APPLY MASCARA
Eyelash extensions are hairs also, made looking exactly like the natural ones. You know how removing mascara on natural lashes is challenging. It often happens with some hair getting pulled out with the makeup.
Others say that you can put on light mascara only at the tip of the extensions if you want to give even more emphasis and darken your eyelash extensions. While, it could also be an option, most especially if you really insist or need to, there are some risks to it so better think carefully and wisely.
Applying mascara would be no problem but removing it would be, so to be sure and safe, just don’t apply. Also, thick eyelash extensions already lay attention to your eyes, so mascara might be a bit of too much. It is not very necessary anymore.
Mascara gets in direct contact as it clings to the lashes, so you are definitely convinced that removing it isn’t easy and safe. If wrongly done or if anything doesn’t go well, then you might need to have your eyelash extensions removed.
 DON’T CURL
You might find it fun and exciting to curl your “eyelashes” now that you have thicker and longer ones — thanks to those extensions! However, do not curl them. Aside from the fact that they already have their own range of curls which you can select before the extension process, the eyelash curler can damage the shape and form of your eyelash extensions.
 DON’T SLEEP ON YOUR FACE
One of the challenging parts of eyelash extensions aftercare has something to do with sleeping. You’re not aware when you sleep, so it’s not very easy to take care of your lashes. When you sleep, do not sleep on your face. Some people might be used to that kind of sleeping position, and if you are, you have to forget about that for your eyelash extensions’ sake! Position your head well, and use a pillow that helps you sleep better without rolling and without damaging your eyelashes.
 DON’T NEGLECT PROPER HYGIENE
Cleaning your eyelash extensions doesn’t demand you to clean them with lots of water since as mentioned before, your eyelash extensions and water don’t get along.
For cleaning, the eyelash extensions clinic will let you use a certain cleaner for those. Listen attentively and remember the proper steps of cleaning them harmlessly and properly. Don’t forget to clean them when it’s already time to do so. The body releases natural oils, and if they visit your eyelash extensions, the adhesive might get attacked, again, causing its tight hold to diminish. The worst thing that might happen is bacteria build-up in and on the eye area if not cleaned right and well.
TAKE CARE OF THEM.
Having eyelash extensions, of course, financially costs you. Consulting a great quality eyelash extensions clinic is the best thing, so you will get the price of your payment! At the same time, you will get the results you want and the pieces of advice you need. Always pay attention to them as they give you instructions on how to take care of your eyelash extensions because they won’t be around your house to remind you.
Take good care of your extensions very well. Keep in mind these common mistakes that people who get eyelash extensions do — that put their money and efforts to waste and their health at risk.
