Lash Lift & Brow Lamination Aftercare Do's and Don'ts

You’ve just finished giving your client a beautiful lift lash or brow lamination and stepped back to admire your work. Looking good! Now it’s time to educate your client on the correct aftercare to keep their lashes and brows lifted and healthy until their next appointment. 

Aftercare is crucial, but it can be overwhelming for first-time clients. To make them feel as comfortable as possible, emphasize the importance of proper aftercare to make their lash lift or brow lamination last. Answer their brow lamination or lash lift questions thoroughly and walk them through all the correct steps following their treatment.

To make things convenient, we’ve compiled a list of lash lift and brow lamination post-treatment do's and don’ts for you and your clients. Let’s start with what not to do first!


After the procedure, there are several things your client will want to avoid:

  • Don’t get your lashes or brows wet. Refrain from wetting your lashes or brows for the first 24-48 hours since water can interfere with the setting of the lifting solution, causing the hairs to lose their shape prematurely.
  • Don’t go near heat or steam. Avoid exposure to saunas, hot showers, and direct sunlight for 24-48 hours. Heat weakens the hold before your lashes or brows have fully set.
  • Don’t use eye makeup. Avoid applying mascara, eyeliner, or eyebrow makeup for the first 24-48 hours. These products weigh down the hair and disrupt the hold.
  • Don’t rub or touch your hair. This can disrupt the hold and cause the hair to lose its shape. Be gentle when cleansing the eye area, and pat your lashes or brows dry after washing your face.
  • Don’t sleep on your face. Avoid sleeping on your side or stomach if you don’t want to crush your lashes or mess up your brows.
  • Don’t use eyelash curlers. The lash lift is designed to enhance the natural curl of your lashes, so additional curling is unnecessary and could damage your lashes.
  • Don’t use oil-based skincare products. Don’t use oily products around the eye area, as they break down the lamination and lifting solutions. Opt for oil-free or water-based products instead.
  • Don’t pick or pull at your hair. This can cause damage and breakage. If you notice any adhesive residue or clumping, gently comb through your lashes or brows with a clean spoolie brush.
  • Don’t expose your hair to harsh chemicals. Steer clear of chlorine from swimming pools or hair dye solutions, which can weaken the hold and cause the lamination to degrade prematurely.
  • Don’t sweat excessively. Avoid activities that cause excessive sweating since this can disrupt the hold, causing the hairs to lose their shape. Gently blot your face with a clean tissue. 


Now that we have the don'ts out of the way, it’s time to share with your clients the essential things they should be doing after their lash lift or lamination:

  • Do be gentle. Be careful when touching or rubbing your eyes, as excessive friction can weaken the lifted lashes or laminated brows, causing them to lose their hold prematurely.
  • Do use a conditioner daily. Consider using a nourishing lash serum to keep your lashes healthy and hydrated. Look for serums containing peptides, biotin, and hyaluronic acid to promote growth and strength.
  • Do brush your lashes or brows daily. Gently brush your lashes or brows daily with a clean spoolie brush to help maintain their shape and separation. This can also prevent the hair from clumping together or becoming tangled.
  • Do attend touch-up appointments. Depending on your lash or brow growth cycle, you may need to schedule a touch-up appointment every 6-8 weeks to maintain the hold and keep your lashes or brows looking their best.
  • Do protect your hair while sleeping. Consider sleeping on your back using a silk or satin pillowcase to minimize friction and protect your lashes or brows while you sleep.


Effective communication, education, and support are vital for ensuring your clients understand the importance of aftercare and can achieve the best possible results from their lash lift or brow lamination treatment.

Educate the Client

First and foremost, politely remind the client of the importance of following the aftercare instructions. Explain how neglecting proper aftercare can affect the longevity and quality of the results.

Provide Written Aftercare Instructions

Offer the client a written copy of the aftercare instructions to take home. This can serve as a visual reminder and reference for them to follow independently.

Offer Additional Guidance

If the client seems unsure or confused about certain aspects of the aftercare routine, offer additional guidance and clarification. Answer any questions your client may have.

Follow Up

After the initial appointment, follow up with your client to check their progress and ensure they follow the aftercare instructions correctly. This provides an opportunity to offer further support if needed.


It can lead to poor results if your client doesn’t follow the proper aftercare steps for a lash lift or brow lamination. This might mean you must reassess whether they’re a good candidate for future treatments. In extreme cases, you may be better off suggesting alternative solutions or treatments that agree with the client's lifestyle or habits.
