How Lash Bath Can Help You Improve Your Retention

What is a lash bath? What is a good eyelash shampoo? Best eyelash wash? Because you can't apply lash extensions to dirty natural lashes, you'll need to do a lash bath to ensure that you have a good starting point for the lashes.

We'll discuss lash baths in today's blog. We use foam cleansers to guarantee that our client's lashes are perfectly clean. You can use it before or after a service.

LASH BATH BENEFITS

First of all, what is a lash bath? A lash bath is a cleansing process that we use to prepare our client's natural lashes before applying extensions. The purpose of the bath is to remove oil and impurities from your natural lashes, which will ensure that your extensions last longer.

Lash bath isn't just for lash artists. It's a must-have for all clients and anyone with eyelash extensions. We give it to our clients when they first visit us in our lash room so that we can ensure that they're following proper aftercare at home. We use a lash shampoo on extensions because it's an oil-free product. Anything with oil in it will cause the lashes to fall off.

The lash foam shampoo helps clean the lashes, and there aren't many oil-free alternatives on the market, so it's a must-have. When cleaning your client's lashes, you should use a soft bristle brush to get right in between the fans or lashes and give them a thorough clean.

To avoid the buildup that will cause lashes to fall out, make sure you're continuously washing it out with recommended lash shampoo.

You'll have a lot of buildup on the lashes if you don't wash them enough, which could lead to an infection or blepharitis in the eyes. Not cleaning the lashes can lead to plenty of eye problems. A lash bath is required. Before you begin your lash set, make sure your client's lashes are clean.

Before their appointment, some lash artists advise their clients to wash their lashes. Before starting each lash appointment, I prefer to take a lash wash. 

Some of our clients have said that they had washed their lashes before coming in. But consider this: she drove from her house to yours, and her lashes were sweat and can contact dust and oils. Perhaps she'll travel somewhere else before her lash appointment, then return to your area a few hours later. 

If she gets an extension on top of the oil or dust that she gets while traveling to your place, you'll put it there, then she'll wash them the next day, and they'll all fall off, which clients blame for the lash artist, and then you'll have to fix them again.

However, if you don't want to give out a free lash bath, you can charge an extra $6 or depend on your area's price range, but at the very least, you'll know you're not wasting any time or money.

HOW TO USE A CLEANING SHAMPOO BRUSH?

Before using the brush, apply your favorite foam cleanser on the lashes. You must use a cleansing brush in a circular motion to get the best results. The best way to avoid uneven and crisscrossed lashes is to brush them upwards from the middle.

CONCLUSION

Clean lashes equal better retention. Therefore, you should always have a lash shampoo in your cart and send it home with your clients when they leave.

Every time a client comes in for a fill or complete set, I clean their lashes. People typically blame everything on the glue, but the truth is that cleaning the lashes is essential for longer retention.
