When it comes to removing eyelash extensions at home, it can be tricky to know where to start. While a fresh set of lashes can look amazing and leave you looking wide awake - they can start to look sparse in no time at all.
Whether you're just not happy with the result after having them done, or you're due for an infill but can't make your next appointment, there are two main methods you try while still keeping your natural lashes intact.
How to remove eyelash extensions:
Method 1: Buy a professional product
There a few professional-grade formulas designed to dissolve eyelash glue efficiently. While there are relatively few products on the market - these two are the best-rated on Amazon. Try Blink Gel Remover or Eyelash Extension Alluring Glue Remover Gel.
We recommend asking a friend to help you and avoid getting eyelash remover gel in your eyes. Leave the gel on for three to five minutes and your lash extensions should slide off. Remove any excess glue on your natural lashes with warm water and a washcloth.
Method two: Go natural
For a removal technique that is both easily accessible and chemical-free try coconut oil. Similarly to the gel remover, natural oils are can be used to break down the glue. Soak a cotton pad with natural coconut oil and hold the moistened pad to your lashes for a few minutes and then you should be able to slide your extensions off easily.
