How to Remove Lash Extensions at Home
My Lash was like a little bit Hamajang, that is a Hawaiian word means crisscross. My husband always calls me that, especially the last couple of weeks. Because they are kind of messing up and falling apart. So now, I’m about to teach you guys how to remove your lash extensions at your own home.
Step 1: Wash Your Face
Wash your face like you would normally do. Make sure not to scrub your eye area as it may pull on your lashes and cause damage.
The purpose of this step is to remove any mascara or eye makeup that may have settled on the eyelash extensions.
Step 2: Use Steam
Fill a large bowl of water with steaming-hot water. Place your face over it and cover your head with a towel to keep the steam in.
Let it sit for a few minutes to loosen up the bond of the eyelash extensions glue. I generally recommend steaming for 15 minutes.
Step 3: Warm the Oil
Get a small bowl and fill it with oil. Coconut oil will give the best results in removing lash extensions but vegetable oil, olive oil, and castor oil can also be used.
The next step is to warm up the oil slightly. Make sure that the oil isn’t too hot because you’re going to deal with a highly sensitive eye area.
Check the warmth by dipping your clean pinky finger. A mild warmth is all you need to accelerate the process.
Step 4: Soak the Pads
The next thing to do is soak one to two cotton pads in warm oil. Once you’re done, place the oiled cotton pad on one of your eyes, over the lashes.
Let it remain there for five to ten minutes, or as long as it takes the cotton pad to lose heat. Gently wipe your upper lash line with the oily pad and let the oil sit on your extensions for a few minutes. Alternatively, you can use a lint-free applicator to dispense the oil on the lashes.
