There’s no denying that we all want our eyelash extensions to last as long as possible. After investing time and money at the salon, the last thing we want is for our lashes to start falling out prematurely. That’s where eyelash extension sealer comes in. But what exactly does it do, and is it something you need? Let’s find out.
What Does an Eyelash Extension Sealer Do?
Think of an eyelash extension sealer as the top-coat nail polish for your manicure. Just like nail polish protects your nails, a lash sealer forms a barrier to shield your lash extensions from the elements that break down the lash glue. This “sealed effect” not only helps retain your extensions but also prevents them from twisting.
How Is Lash Sealer Different from Other Products?
You may have been instructed not to put anything on your extension lashes, but a lash sealer is different. It is a water-soluble, oil-free aftercare product that specifically prolongs the retention of lash extensions. While other cosmetic products may interfere with the adhesive, a lash sealer is designed to enhance it.
Our Black Diamond Coating Sealant, for example, not only extends the life of your lashes but also adds a slight shine to their appearance. Infused with Gardenia Florida fruit extract, it naturally deepens the black color of the extensions, making them look more defined.
What to Look for in a Lash Sealer?
When searching for a lash sealer, it’s essential to look for one that offers multiple benefits. Our worldwide best-selling Black Diamond Coating Sealant is formulated with proven ingredients like allantoin, hyaluronic acid, and essential B vitamins. These elements provide hydration, protein, and vitamins to strengthen your natural lashes.
Additionally, our Black Diamond Coating Sealant incorporates earthy natural ingredients from Eastern medicine. This holistic approach ensures long-term lash health and beauty, giving you the best of both worlds.
Frequently Asked Questions about Eyelash Extension Sealer (FAQ)
Do You Have a Clear Lash Sealer?
Yes, we do! Our Crystal Drop Coating Sealant is perfect for use with color lash extensions. It has almost the same ingredients as our Black Diamond Coating Sealant, but without the natural black dye component. So, if you prefer a clear color, the Crystal Drop Coating Sealant is the one for you.
When Can I Start Using the Eyelash Sealer?
It’s important to wait until the eyelash extension adhesive has fully cured before using a lash sealer. We recommend waiting 2-3 days after the treatment to ensure there is no blooming effect.
Can I Use the Lash Sealer on Volume Lashes?
Absolutely! Contrary to popular belief, lash sealers can be used on volume lashes too. Just remember to apply a light coat and brush them thoroughly with a fresh mascara brush to avoid the lashes sticking together.
How Do I Apply the Coating Sealer?
Applying a lash coating sealer is as easy as applying mascara. Just make sure to spread it evenly on the eyelashes, avoiding contact with your lash line. Once applied, use a dry lash wand to brush them well.
Extra Tips When Using an Eyelash Extension Sealer:
- When applying a lash sealer, it may temporarily create a “wet lash” look. Use a new, dry lash wand to spread the sealer evenly and prevent the extensions from sticking together.
- Avoid applying the sealer onto your skin or lash line. Give it a 2-3mm room from the lash root for easier cleaning.
- Wait at least 48 hours after the lash extension application before using a coating sealer.
- If applying a sealant at the end of a client’s service, use a brush-tip lash coating sealer instead of a mascara-tip one to avoid cross-contamination.
- Once opened and used, the recommended shelf-life for one bottle is 6 months.
