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 only water based make up remover specially formulated for gently removing debris and oils around the eyes to prolong the life of your lashes and encourage their growth.
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 & brows. 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.
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.
Don’t use regular, over the counter mascaras pencils: We recommend using mascara that is specially formulated for lashes. Ask the stylist on tips how to apply the mascaral.
Don’t use manual lash curlers: This will break both extensions and natural lashes! Instead, we recommend using an advanced heated eyelash curler. Use to curl lashes only on the tips of the extensions, do not head from the room of the eyelashes.
