Have you been losing your lashes too quickly? Here are a few things that could cause premature lash extension loss.


  • Cause: Hair Conditioner
    Your hair conditioner may be the culprit behind premature lash extension loss and poor attachment. Some types of hair conditioner (or even hair conditioning masks) can leave behind residual film, and as a result, negatively affect lash extension attachment and longevity. This is why it is so important to cleanse lashes thoroughly before any lash application.

    • Cure: To combat this problem, cleansing and creating the optimal surface for lash attachment is key. To do this, use Xtreme Lashes® Eye Makeup Remover & Facial Cleanser to cleanse and create the optimal surface for attachment and minimize the chances of this problem occurring again. Regardless of how clean your lashes may appear, cleansing and priming will ensure you’ve removed any residual hair conditioner, skincare, or makeup that may not be visible to the naked eye.
      Additionally, protect your lashes from hair conditioner run off when showering. We encourage you to reposition your showerhead, tilt your head further back than usual, or utilize a hand-held shower head attachment when shampooing, conditioning, and rinsing your hair.
      As always, remember to arrive with clean lashes, and face, for every appointment.
  • Cause: Eye Rubbing and Itching
    Everyone gets itchy eyes, and it is a natural habit to rub them. Rubbing can break down the lash adhesive and cause lash loss.

    • Cure: When your eyes feel itchy gently brush the tips of your lashes, or rub one finger over the eyelid without applying too much pressure on the lash line.
  • Cause: Products Containing Glycols and Carbonates
    These types of products will weaken the bond on the adhesives. The chemicals react with the adhesive and may cause irritation as well.

    • Cure: The cure is quite simple, try a new product that does not contain any glycols or carbonates.
  • Cause: Oil based Products
    Oil is slippery. This can make it difficult for the extensions to attach in the first place. Another reason why coming to your lash appointment with a clean dry face is so important. The oil in your product can also weaken the adhesives.

    • Cure: The cure is quite simple, try a new product that does not contain oils. Use an oil free makeup remover and clean your face thoroughly before your next lash appointment.
  • Cause: Extreme Temperature Changes and UV Exposure
    Fluctuation in temperatures and exposure to prolonged UV rays can make the adhesive brittle. Brittle adhesive means that it won’t be flexible, so when you rub, or catch the extensions on anything, it can break the extension off of your natural lashes.

    • Cure: Try to keep from prolonged exposures to extreme heat or cold when going outside. Also, if you use a hair blow dryer, curling or flat iron, be sure to keep the heat away from the lashes. Never try to curl your lash extensions. Avoid using tanning beds as much as possible. Lash extensions aside, tanning beds really are bad for your skin or your body anyway.
