Eyelash extensions are a great way to take any look to the next level, but removing them can be tricky. Strong adhesives and sensitive skin make your eyelids a dangerous place to play tug-of-war without knowing exactly what you’re doing. And, if your objective as a #girlboss is to keep it cute, balding lashes are a no-go. At Cherry Lash, we offer the best eyelash extensions in Las Vegas, so we know a thing or two about safe installation and removal.
Here are a few tips from the pros to help you remove your extensions with ease:
Use lash glue remover on your eyelash extensions
If you’re unable to make it into the salon for professional lash removal, purchasing a glue remover should do the trick. Lash glue remover is intended to loosen the adhesive, allowing you to carefully remove your eyelash extensions after applying the product.
Loosen eyelash extensions with steam
A little DIY action never hurt anybody! You can skip the removers entirely and opt for a more natural, at-home method, using steam to loosen the adhesive on your eyelash extensions.
To start, you’ll first need to heat a bowl of water. After pouring the hot water into a wide bowl, use your hand to test the temperature of the steam. Find a sweet spot where you can comfortably feel the warmth.
Take a dampened towel and place it over your head, trapping in the steam. Keep your face at a safe distance from the heat and let the steam rise for about 10 minutes. After time has passed, your lash glue should have loosened enough for individual removal.
While this method is a bit more time-consuming, it can be both safe and effective. In fact, it’s best to take your time and use great care when removing eyelash extensions. So, seize an opportunity to pour a glass (or three!) of wine, cue up a new season of your latest Netflix obsession, steam away if you must. Your lids and lashes will appreciate the extra TLC.
Use olive or coconut oil as a natural glue remover on your eyelash extensions
If you’re able to dig into your pantry to use olive or coconut oil, do it. You can use either one in combination with steam, or on its own, to remove your eyelash extensions. Soak a cotton ball in the oil and gently run it over your lashes. Allow the oil enough time to loosen the adhesive, then continue moving the swab back and forth on your lash line, gently, until your eyelash extensions begin to fall out.
Factor professional removal into your eyelash extensions cost
While these hacks can help, the best eyelash extensions removal involves professional assistance. Quality eyelash extensions can be pricey for some; however, preserving the health and integrity of your natural lashes can make the decision to factor removal into your eyelash extensions cost worthwhile. You worked hard to look this fierce, so don’t be afraid to leave safe removal to the pros!
The best eyelash extensions are adhered individually to your natural lashes using a safe, yet secure adhesive. That means a DIY removal puts you at risk for serious lash loss, a major no-no! A professional will have the tools and the know-how to safely remove your eyelash extensions and protect your natural lashes. If you’ve invested in a significant eyelash extensions cost, it’s worth it to have them removed properly.
