Do's and Don'ts
Do wait 24hours before getting your lashes wet. This includes showering, splashing water on your face, visits to the sauna/steam room, swimming, crying, and sweating during exercise.
Do clean your lashes using color safe / extensions safe only makeup remover specially formulated for gently removing debris and oils around the eyes to prolong the life of your lashes and encourage their growth. MICELLAR water will loosen bond of the extensions, droop yoru lift or even strip down your lash tint.
Do keep your hands off your lashes no matter how bad you want to touch them. Don’t rub, pick or pull your eyelash extensions to avoid permanent damage to your natural eyelash. Just as plucking your eyebrow hair can cause damage to the root causing it to not grow back ─ the same is true for eyelashes.
Do contact Dallash if you experience signs of irritation. Signs of irritation may appear as redness, itchiness, or swelling around the lash line, which may occur within 24 hours of the application. In case of an allergic reaction, the lash extensions might have to be removed. To avoid damage to your natural lashes, avoid removing the lashes extensions yourself. Please read on how to prepare for your appointment to minimize common allergy reaction.
Do love your lashes. ENJOY!
Don't use cotton swabs when cleansing your lash line. Always use a sponge applicator or a micro swab which can gently sweep across the base of your lashes without leaving behind trace fibers. After using cleansers, or when your lashes are wet from the shower, always pat them dry ─ avoid rubbing them with your towel.
Don’t excessively rub lashes or eyes while washing face. Gently pat dry.
Don’t use oil-based eye products around or on the eyes. Oil-based products around or on the eyes will dissolve the bonding agent of eyelash extensions, droop your lash lift. NO MICELLAR WATER.
Don’t use face wash as your lash cleanser: This will break down the bond with extensions and cause severe dryness to your natural lashes. Only color safe/ extensions safe lash cleanser should be used.
Don’t use over the counter mascaras!
This will dry out your natural lashes if you had a lash lift done - you must use ELLEEPLEX as your primer if you choose to wear ordinary mascara.
With lash extensions the use of mascara is absolutely prohibited. If we do find a trace of mascara on your extensions we will have to remove all extensions and start with a New Set due to the chemicals include most mascaras that can affect the bond and retention.
Don’t use manual lash curlers: This will ruin your extensions and natural lashes!
It is pulling and adding stress to your lashes. at some point they simply will not grow back.
In between your lash lifts you may only use an advanced heated eyelash curler.
Don't sleep "face down" on your pillow. Avoid rubbing your eyes too aggressively on your pillow while sleeping.
Try our SILK pillow case or "Save the face pillow".
Don’t receive acidic facials: Avoid Acidic peels such as Chemical Peels, Alpha and/or Beta Hydroxy Peels for 5 days before / after lash & brow treatments.

Is Lash Lifting Safe For Mama And Baby?
BY ZOE MITTER from Elleebana
Pregnancy is a wonderful time for a woman, loads to look forward to with the impending arrival of a little one. Acupuncturist and Midwife at Gold Coast University Hospital, Melissa Thompson, has caught her fair share of newborns in the delivery suite but also spends a considerable amount of time with the expecting mothers while they are pregnant and even after the delivery and during breastfeeding stages. She notes there is so much to consider both during and even after pregnancy with hormonal fluctuations within the mother’s body.
“During pregnancy, often women comment on their hair loss, structural changes of their hair or even new hair growth. These are due to either increases or decreases of hormones such as Prostaglandin and Oxytocin. There is not one simply rule to say that every woman’s hormones will behave in the same way as we are all unique and our bodies all respond to pregnancy differently” Melissa says.
“In some pregnancies, women can see hair become curlier or straighter and during breastfeeding hair can fall out. I see this, or other hair alterations in a considerable percentage of woman I care for and we can mostly attribute this to the change in hormone levels’’
It’s because of these hormonal changes that sometimes an eyelash lift might not work on an expecting or breastfeeding mother, it could also mean the processing time that is required could be longer or shorter.
If you have an expecting mother who books for in for an eyelash lift it is important to confirm if she has previously had this treatment performed with the brand that you are using. Most times if the mother has not had an eyelash lift before falling pregnant, it would be recommended to not perform the treatment without educating the client of the potential issues such as the lift not working/dropping out or over processing.
The first trimester of pregnancy is often the period of higher hormonal changes and many women are experiencing higher sensitivities during this period so Elleebana recommends avoiding performing eyelash lifts during this first trimester. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers who do experience a reaction are not able to take antihistamines or antibiotics as these treatments can affect their child and so there are some cautions that need to be taken.
Regardless of pregnancy or non pregnancy you should always have an up to date indemnity form from your client on file that has their current medications or any developed allergies
