Why should I clean my eyelash extensions?
Just like you clean your hair, teeth and skin, there is a way to keep your lash line clean, happy and healthy. When you wear mascara, you remove it with a cleanser that dissolves your makeup and the movements you make over your eyelashes removes the sweat, oil, dust and dirt that accumulate each day, Your “Lash Poo” does exactly the same thing for your lash line and your eyelash extensions and is a very simple step to add to your daily cleansing routine.
What is the foam pumper for?
The specialised foamer bottle takes the liquid and injects air as it dispenses, making the “lash poo” mixture into a foam, which makes it very easy for the cleanser to get between the lashes. The high water and air content of the foam also makes it easy to rinse away, leaving the lashes squeaky clean, without any residue.
Why do I need to use Baking Soda?
Baking Soda is mildly antiseptic and very soothing to the eyes, helping to calm allergic reactions and neutralise impurities like chlorine. It adjusts the PH and it makes the baby shampoo a more effective cleanser, also buffering the gas produced by the glue when it is curing, reducing possibility of sensitivity. The combination of baby shampoo and baking soda is one often recommended by opthalmologists to care for and soothe eye conditions and irritations.
Why do I need to use bottled water?
We need a clean mixture, free of the bacteria that is likely to be lurking around taps, kitchens and bathrooms.
So, how do I wash my extensions?

This part is very easy. Make up the “Lash Poo”, using the simple recipe enclosed in your Lash Care Kit with your foamer bottle. Take a small ball of foam in your fingers and keeping your eyes closed, move the foam over your lashes with the brush provided with gentle strokes, from the root to the tip. Rinse thoroughly with clean water. You can leave them to dry naturally, or if you want to, you can lightly blow dry them on a cool setting. You can gently brush through your lashes with the enclosed wand.
