TROUBLESHOOTING COMMON RETENTION ISSUES



FACIAL HYDRATION SPRAY AND FOUNDATION SETTING SPRAY

Research the ingredients in these sprays. Some contain glycol which dehydrates the deepest layers of the skin, your natural lashes and the adhesive. Some contain sodium which also dehydrates. 

Recommendation: Xtreme Lashes® Protective Coating



MAKEUP WIPES

Contain solvents and glycols which dissolves the cyanoacrylates in the  adhesive. The glycols in the wipes dehydrates the skin in the deepest layers leaving the skin look flat. Doesn't matter if you wash your face with quality facial cleanser after using facial wipes, the ingredients in the wipes already entered into your skin barrier.


Recommendation: Xtreme Lashes® Eye Makeup Remover and Facial Cleanser




DRY EYE

If you use eye drops for dry eye, rinse lashes with room temperature water immediately after applying drops. The oils get into the lash line will effect the adhesive resulting in premature extension loss.

Recommendation: Xtreme Lashes® Protective Coating


EYE CREAM | CONCEALER | SERUMS | PETROLEUM JELLY

Do not use oil based eye cream around the eyelids or under the lower eye area. When you open your eyes, products on the upper eye will get onto the extensions and when you close your eyes (blinking also), products used on the lower eye will get onto the extensions. This will result in extensions dropping prematurely. Be careful not to use Petroleum Jelly around the eye because this too can clog follicles.

EXERCISING | EXTREME HEAT | SAUNA'S | CRYING 

The salt water in perspiration breaks down the adhesive. When participating in activities that cause you to perspire be mindful not swipe your eyes with anything - including your hands. Not only does swiping damage and/or break your lashes, you are also depositing bacteria onto your eyes and lashes which could cause an eye infection in one or both eyes.

HOT YOGA | HOT PILATES

The excessive continued heat in hot yoga will cause premature loss of eyelash extensions.

  • Q: I see other people in my hot yoga class wearing eyelash extensions and they don't drop extensions?
  • A: Often times it's because extensions are not individual extensions. When extensions and natural eyelashes are clumped together with glue, then the extensions will stay on for 6 weeks or longer - BUT at the expense of a healthy lash line. When eyelash extensions or individual clusters (yes, people say they do a feathery types of extension which is just another word for cluster), these clusters require more adhesive. More adhesive equals more natural lashes get glued in with the "feathery" individual clusters. Overtime, when the faster growing natural lashes attached with multiple lashes, the slower natural eyelashes are pulled out prematurely. Overtime, like with plucking or over waxing brows, eye lashes stop growing back. Extensions and clusters and strips can only be adhered if there are lashes to glue them to. Just ask people who have lost their hair due to medical conditions. There is nothing that can be done to reverse the damage.

LASH GROWTH SERUM

Avoid Latisse!!! Latisse damages lashes. This is like steroids for lashes. The lashes grow at an accelerated rate, however, like in body building there is a cost. The lashes look long yet, they cannot hold weight of an extensions and the natural lashes look like the behind of a Golden Retriever. When over used, the follicles can get damaged and stop regrowing hair. Hair can grow in other areas of the face like in the corner of the eye so not only do you now have to get your upper lip waxed now you are wanting the corners of your eyes waxed due to excessive new hair growth. My recommendation is stay far away from Latisse.

PICKING | RUBBING

Do not touch, pick or wiping the extensions. This breaks the adhesive attachment at the base resulting in extensions dropping prematurely. Picking not only removes the extensions, also breaks off the natural lashes and/or causes the natural lash to split/peel in layers. Again, continued touching deposits bacteria which could result in an eye infection.

SLEEPING

Avoid sleeping on your face. Burying your eyes in a pillow can cause extensions to bend resulting in adhesive separating from the eye lashes resulting in premature extension loss. Do not use sleeping eye covers/blindfolds.

Recommendation: Sleep on back
Recommendation: Silk pillow case


GLASSES

Extensions are too long if they hit the lenses of your eyeglasses and sunglasses. Lashes at are pushed against the lenses cause friction with the adhesive result in premature extension loss. Blindfolds will cause the eyelashes to begin growing in a downward motion resulting in premature extension loss and also when natural lashes begin growing downwards, the lashes become unlashable.


Recommendation: Shorter eyelash extensions
Recommendation: Do not cover eyelids with anything



HEAT

Extreme heat from hair dryers, ovens, boiling pots and the sun will melt the tips of the extensions and/or dry out the adhesive and natural lashes resulting in premature extension loss.
