Did you know that a bad pre-treatment routine is one of the causes of poor retention? This, in turn, leads to unhappy customers!
A good pre-treatment routine is a MUST if you want to make sure the set of eyelash extensions you have just spent hours on will last on your clients, assure satisfaction and keep your customer returning!
Where to begin?
A Good consultation! By advising your clients not to wear any eye makeup before the treatment you will save yourself a lot of time!
Of course, it will happen that some of your clients will still show up with the makeup on. It is good to be prepared for such a circumstance and offer your client some kind of makeup remover. That could be an oil-free product like wipes, micellar water or lash shampoo with warm water.
To ensure that the extensions will last maximum time you need to make sure natural lashes are sparkly clean. We recommend Protein Removing Pads to remove any makeup traces, natural oils, and protein. They are also very efficient; one pot will easily last you for over 30 treatments.
If you can definitely say that your client does not wear any makeup you can use the liquid cleanser and microfibre brushes to remove any natural oils, proteins, and dust. Don’t forget that if you are using alcohol-based cleanser you are removing all water and moist from lashes, so to bring back the balance you have to use a product that will moisturize and hydrate the lashes for example water-based primer.
Additionally, if you are an experienced lash technician, you can as a very last step use pre-bonder. It’s a relatively new product on the market, that changes the PH of the lashes to ensure even better bonding with the glue.
