You just spent two hours and $200 for the perfect eyelash extensions and they look FAB! We want you to keep those lashes as long as possible, so here are a few tips on how to take care of your eyelash extensions to ensure you’re getting your time and money’s worth:
1. Avoid Oil-Based Products
Many cleansers and cosmetics are oil-base, and this means bad news for your eyelash extensions. Oils will dissolve the adhesive that bonds your lash extensions, causing near-instant fallout.To make sure you’re not sabotaging your lashes,it’s time to start checking your beauty products’ ingredients and switch to products that are oil-free and gentle, including your makeup remover, to avoid this common lash snafu.

2. Use a Lash Serum Daily
You may think eyelash serums are the enemy of extensions. Au contraire! An oil-free eyelash serum that will strengthen your own lashes and elongate the anogen (growth phase) of the hair cycle is the perfect complement to your extensions. Swipe on vegaLASH Volumizing Serum and notice how much longer your eyelashes — real and faux! — stay fabulous.

3. Extend the Life of Your Eyelash Extensions
Like any treatment, sometimes our body needs a rest. We challenge you to skip that next extensions appointment and instead invest in the ultra-amazing Combo Plan 1, which features everything you need to repair, strengthen, and revamp your very own eyelashes. With a quick swipe on each lash line twice per day to start, you should notice improvement within the very first month! Keep up the swiping once daily for maintenance, as you learn to love your new, natural eyelashes.
We appreciate a beauty breakthrough as much as anyone--and eyelash extensions can be wonderful! But if your own eyelashes aren’t quite up for the challenge, definitely add an eyelash serum to the mix to keep them strong and gorgeous.
