Have you heard that you can’t get eyelash extensions wet because they’ll fall off? Yup, we’ve heard that too and all we can say is that the poor person that had his/her extensions fall off after getting them wet didn’t get them done at FCL. Most eyelash extension places in the GTA will tell you to A) avoid getting them wet at all – how would this ever work in real life other than showering with goggles on or B) avoid getting them wet anywhere from 24 to 48 hrs – that’s the old school way of applying lashes. Technology has come a long way since then in respects to “sealing” the extensions, keeping up with it is part of any lash studio’s ongoing education.
So no, you don’t have to shower with goggles on and you don’t have to wait to get them wet. Any water source: poolside (chlorine), salt water, lake water and the shower are totally fine. A simple flick of your finger nail or a comb through with a dry mascara wand will pop those beauties right back into formation. You can dunk your head as much as you like, however we can’t guarantee that your hair will look as good as you lashes will after.
