AFTERCARE

Lash Extensions Aftercare Advice

 

For best results and retention we recommend you adhere to the following advice:

  • Avoid steam and getting the lashes wet for 24 hours – this allows the solvent in the adhesive to fully evaporate.

  • Avoid rubbing the lashes as it may tug on the natural lashes and pull them out from the root. Over a period of time this may lead to alopecia.

  • Avoid picking the lashes off. Always schedule a removal appointment if you wish to have the lashes removed.

  • Avoid waxy eyeliners as they contain beeswax and oils which break down the lash adhesive. We recommend using Eyelash Emporium Amplify Eyeliner.

  • Avoid oil-based make up remover as it will break down the adhesive bonds.

  • Avoid Micellar Water as it contains oil.

  • Avoid make up wipes and cotton wool as they will snag on the lashes.

  • Avoid heavy pressure to the lashes.

  • Book your maintenance appointments no longer than 3 weeks apart.

  • Wash the lashes twice a day – we recommend using Eyelash Emporium Lash Cleansing Duo.

  • Gently brush the lashes daily with a clean mascara wand. It is natural to lose lashes daily, this is part of the natural lash shed. On average expect to lose a few lashes per eye every day. In spring and autumn we experience a lash shed where we lose more lashes, this is completely normal and your lash tech will advise how to adjust your appointments in order to keep the lashes looking full.

Nail Services Aftercare

 

To maintain the best results from your nail service you should adhere to the following advice:

  • Apply cuticle oil twice a day. It should be applied to the skin surrounding the nails and to the tip of the finger underneath the free edge. This will keep the skin soft so you have nothing to pick and helps to avoid service breakdown. We recommend using Light Elegance Cuticle Oil.

  • Use hand cream to hydrate your skin but AVOID rubbing it in to the nails as these creams may contain ingredients that can cause the gel overlay to lift away from the natural nail.

  • Wear gloves when washing up to avoid exposing the nails to long periods of time in water.

  • Avoid prolonged exposure to water as the natural nail will soften and may pull away from the gel overlay.

  • Wear gloves for any chores that involve using your hands. Nail services are designed to make the nails look pretty not to make them strong enough to be used as tools.

  • Do not bite or pick the nails or skin. This will cause damage to the natural nail. Nails that are damaged have poor adhesion to products and therefore you may find that future services do not last as they should.

  • Schedule your maintenance appointments for no longer apart than 3 weeks. Spreading your appointments too far apart will result in service breakdown leading to breakages and chipping.

Waxing Aftercare Advice

 

For 24 hours after waxing it is important to follow these guidelines:

DO NOT touch or scratch the waxed area.

Avoid swimming/chlorinated water.

Do not apply the following products to the area after waxing:

  • Tan

  • Body Butter

  • Moisturiser

  • Make-up

  • Deodorant
     

These guidelines ensure there is no risk of pathogens or product entering the follicle where the hair has been removed from, preventing folliculitis or infection.

You should also -

  • Avoid Hot showers/Baths

  • Avoid Sun beds/Sun Exposure

  • Avoid Sauna/Steam Room

  • Avoid Tight, Restrictive Clothing

  • Avoid excessive perspiration eg gym, running, exercise classes
     

For best results after waxing we recommend

  • Using Wax:One Care to prevent ingrown hairs (wait 48 hours after wax treatment)

  • Exfoliating 2-3 times per week

  • Using a moisturising product to keep skin hydrated and smooth

  • Return in 4-6 weeks to maintain the results

Tint Aftercare Advice

 

To maintain the best results from your tinting service we recommend adhering to the following advice:

  • Avoid the use of astringent cleansers, micellar water, facial wipes around the brow or lashes as this may fade the tint quicker.

  • Minimise sun exposure to prolong the results of the tint.

  • Avoid the use of tanning products over tinted brows as this may affect the colour of the brow.

  • We recommend using the HD Brows Tint Lock Serum to coat the brow hairs with a film which will prolong the results of the tint to reduce rapid fading.

  • Whilst we do everything we can to avoid it, it is normal to experience a little bit of staining on the skin immediately after treatment. We will do our best to remove any stain however it will fade within 24 hours as you wash your face.

  • Leave a minimum of 3-4 weeks before tinting the brows/lashes again.

HD BrowSculpt Aftercare Advice

 

To maintain the best results from your HD BrowSculpt service we recommend adhering to the following advice:

  • Avoid getting the brows wet for the first 24hrs after treatment. This allows the brow hairs to settle into their new position.

  • Avoid the use of astringent cleansers, micellar water, facial wipes around the brow.

  • Leave a minimum of 8 weeks before your next BrowSculpt service to avoid over processing the brow hairs. In between BrowSculpt appointments you may want to book a HD Brow appointment to keep the brows in shape and maintain the colour.

  • Avoid the use of tanning products over tinted brows as this may affect the colour of the brow.

  • It is essential to use the HD Brows Tint Lock Serum to nourish the brow hairs and prolong the results of the tint.

  • The brows will not remain in the same lifted position as they appear at the end of the service. You will need to style the brow by brushing them and if you want to achieve the strong brushed up brow look you may want to apply HD Brow Glue to set hairs in place all day.

Colouring Aftercare Advice

 

  • Avoid washing your hair for at least 48 hours after your colour service, this ensures your colour will be ‘locked’ in

  • Avoid the use of hot tools like straighteners and curling tongs for at least 48 hours as these can pull colour out of the hair

  • Avoid using shampoos and conditioners which contain ‘sulphates’. Sulphates are an agent which helps a product to lather up. ‘Sodium Lauryl Sulphate’ (SLS) and ‘Sodium Laureth Sulphate’ (SLES) are widely used in cheaper shampoos and conditioners. These sulphates strip colour out of the hair, so if you notice your hair colour fades quickly then this will be one of the reasons why. They also remove natural oils from the scalp so if you notice your scalp is dry then this could be why. We recommend Tigi Copyright shampoos and conditioners as part of your home care routine. They are all ‘sulphate’ free so your colour is preserved and Tigi’s Colour Care Complex blend of Coconut Oil, Lipids and Keratin ensure the hair is healthy and shiny.

  • Ensure you always use a heat protector when drying and styling your hair as heat will cause colour to fade. We recommend Tigi Copyright Heat Protector Spray applied before blow-drying. This will ensure your hair is not only protected from heated appliances up to 230c but will also protect from UV and works like a leave-in conditioner too, de-tangling and nourishing the hair.

Luxe Links Hair Extensions Aftercare Advice

 

  • Always brush your hair before washing to avoid any tangling and matting.

  • Separate your links by gently pulling them apart to ease out tangles.

  • Apply Racoon-Xtend Luxurious Shampoo to wet hair and ‘squeeze’ through from roots to ends, do not rub in as this will cause tangling. Use a downward zig-zag motion with your fingertips to massage the scalp instead.

  • Ensure you rinse thoroughly and repeat the shampoo process if necessary. Then apply Racoon-Xtend Luxurious Conditioner using gentle strokes through the mid-lengths and ends, then rinse thoroughly.

  • Comb through the hair from the mid-lengths to ends first working up to the roots using a Racoon Wide Tooth Comb. When you get to the roots place your free hand over the links to ensure there is no excessive tension being applied to them. Do not comb directly over the links.

  • Use Racoon-Xtend Everyday Conditioner or Racoon-Xtend Thermal Defense Spray to protect your hair during drying and also protects from UV rays.

  • Ensure your links are thoroughly dried with the hairdryer (without a nozzle) using a downward pointing motion, once the links and hair is almost dry (slightly damp) then the hair can be dried and styled with a brush as normal.

  • When using heated appliances always spritz with Racoon-Xtend Thermal Defense Spray and do not exceed the recommended temperature of 160℃.

  • Avoid exposure to chlorine or chemicals in a swimming pool and salty sea water as this can have an adverse effect on the links, dry out the hair and discolour them. If you do swim then ensure your hair is tied up in a high bun or plait and kept out of the water.

  • If your hair becomes dull or tacky to touch there may be a build-up of product. We recommend using Racoon-Xtend Detox Shampoo to remove the build-up followed by a treat with Racoon-Xtend Conditioning Hair Mask.

  • Always attend your maintenance and rotation appointments to ensure the links are kept in good condition.
