Maintaining Your Lashes During a Pandemic

As we trudge through this pandemic, battling lockdown and isolations, it’s tough on our lashes. Though we can’t be there for you during closures, we’re still here! And this post is to help you get through this!

 

How to maintain your Lash Extensions during lockdowns 

These 3+week closures have been the most detrimental to your extensions, but here’s some tips on how you can do your best to maintain your extensions:

  1. Wash your lashes! But not too much! We all know that oils affect the lash adhesive, this is one of the reasons it’s important to wash your lashes. Excess build up of natural skin oils can cause your extensions to fall off prematurely. If you’re wearing eye makeup daily, then yes, wash it off your lashes. However, if you do not wear makeup daily, try washing your lashes every other day using an extension-safe foaming lash bath. Also get yourself a lash brush to ensure optimal deep cleaning!

  2. NO TOUCHY! Aside from washing and brushing your lashes, do not touch them! I know as they grow out more, playing with them can become irresistible, however dirt and oils also transfer from your hands onto your lashes, circling back to tip #1. Also, tugging on these can cause your natural lash to shed before they are ready. Resist that urge!! DO NOT TOUCH!
  1. Book a “New Set” for when we reopen. Even if you still may have some extensions on, booking a new set with your artist will ensure they have enough time to remove and grown out ones (which will likely be almost all of them) and then fill those lashes to the best of their ability!
  2. Try Lashocracy! Lashocracy is our glueless strip-lashes that are extension safe. If your extensions are not handling the lockdown well and you need a lash boost, these are a great fix till your lash fill! The fact that they are glueless makes them easy to apply and remove without damaging your lashes!

How To maintain your natural lashes during lockdowns

The tips above also protect your natural lashes while wearing extensions, however there’s more you can do:

  1. Get on the Eyenvy train! This forced break is a great time to boost your lashes, and get them growing longer and stronger! Eyenvy is an excellent ay to do so. This has to be used DAILY for optimal results. But start this routine A.S.A.P. and your natural lashes will be even longer and stronger, and even If your getting a New Set, or a Keratin Lash Lift when we reopen, this will be highly beneficial!
  2. Use your Keratin Mascara! (Not extension friendly). Whether you have a lift that is growing out, or has already completely grown out, continued use of this will help to maintain the strength and integrity of your lashes. If your lift is still growing out, this will really help to tame the sometimes wild grow-out stage, and also help your lift last longer through these lockdowns. If your lift has already grown out,

    using this daily will only give added nutrients to your lashes and prime them for your next lift when we reopen!

WET LASH LOOK: New Lash Extensions Style

THE WET LASH LOOK is one of the hottest lash extension styles trending on Instagram right now and you can get yours at Keravie Lash Loft – Edmonton’s top lash extension studio! 

SALE ALERT– Book your New Volume Set with @keraviebymegan to save $30 off this look using code WETLASHLOOK** until April 5!

(Reg. $190, Sale $160)

 

WHAT IT IS: This look mimics the look of your lash extensions when you get them wet; creating a spikier and more wispy effect. 

HOW WE CREATE IT: Using a bundle of ultra-light and ultra-fine volume lash extensions, we make straight to very narrow fans to apply to each of your individual lashes. 

Wet Lash Look Bundle in 0.03s

The Wet Lash Look appears similar to Classic Lash Extensions, but they are thicker and bolder looking because of the wider appearance of the lash bundles. 

We’ve been combining the Wet Lash Look with Strip Lash Mapping Styles by using varying shorter and longer lengths in a stylized pattern and we are loving the effects! 

BEST SUITED FOR: Natural lashes that are moderate to full. Generally speaking, we wouldn’t recommend this look for someone with sparse lashes since sparse lashes benefit most from volume fans that are fat and wide as opposed to skinny and straight like the style demanded from this look.
