So, you’ve tried out eyelash extensions and it’s time for them to come off? Removing your own lash extensions can be tricky, especially if you’ve never done it before. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of removing Kiss lash extensions safely and effectively.

What are Kiss lash extensions and why remove them on your own?

Kiss lash extensions are a type of semi-permanent eyelash extension that is glued to your natural lashes. These lashes are designed to stay in place for several weeks, but they can be removed when they start to fall out or when you’re ready for a change. There are several reasons you might want to remove lash extensions on your own:

  • You don’t want to spend money for a removal service done professionally
  • You want to avoid driving to the beauty salon where you got them applied
  • You may have had an allergic reaction to the glue/fiber
  • You would like to skip the long waiting time required for getting an appointment for a professional removal

Preparing for the removal process

Before you start to remove the lash extensions, it’s essential to be able to identify the type of lash glue used on your extensions. If you’re unsure, you can contact the salon where you got them applied and ask them; or better, ask their professional opinion on the matter before you proceed with the removal process.

You’ll need a few things before you get started:

  • A clean, dry face
  • Lint-free cleansing cotton pads or disposable micro brushes
  • Coconut oil or olive oil
  • A bowl of hot water
  • A clean and sanitized pair of tweezers

Make sure everything is within easy reach before you start, and have a steady hand. Ensure you’re calm and not in a rush since the process requires patience and care.

How to Remove Kiss lash extensions

Follow these steps to remove your Kiss lash extensions safely:

Step 1: Cleanse your face

Before starting, ensure your face is clean. Use your usual makeup remover or cleansing oil and make sure there are no traces of makeup or oils. Dry your face thoroughly with a clean towel.

Step 2: Steam your face

Boil some water, pour it into a bowl, and let it cool until it’s warm. Hold your face over the bowl for a few minutes. The steam will help to soften the glue and make it easier to remove the lash extensions.

Step 3: Apply oil on your lashes

Apply a small amount of coconut oil or olive oil to your lashes, ensuring it gets on every lash. Leave the oil on your lashes for 10-15 minutes to soften the glue even more. Using coconut or olive oil will also prevent your lashes from getting dry or breaking off when you start to remove the extensions.

Step 4: Gently remove the lash extensions with a pair of sanitized tweezers

Use a pair of sanitized tweezers and gently start removing the lash extensions by gripping them at the base of the lash, where they are attached to the natural lash, and pull the lash extension gently. Most of the time, they’ll come off easily if you’ve completed the previous steps correctly.

Step 5: Clean up the leftover adhesive

If you can’t remove the extensions with only tweezers, use a micro brush or a cotton pad and use oil to gently break down any remaining glue. Take extra care when performing this step as you don’t want to pull out your natural eyelashes.

Step 6: Wash your face

Once you’ve removed all of the extensions, cleanse your face to remove all the oil residue used in the previous steps. Wash your face with your preferred facial wash or cleansing foam.

Tips for a successful removal process

Here are some additional tips to ensure your Kiss lash extensions removal goes as smoothly as possible:

  • It’s recommended not to apply lash extensions back-to-back between appointments. Give your natural lashes time to recover and regrow.
  • Don’t use force when trying to remove the extensions. Grip them gently and move on to the next lash if they don’t come off easily.
  • If you start feeling any discomfort or irritation in your eyes, stop the process immediately and contact a professional.
  • If you’re afraid of removing Kiss lash extensions on your own, consider having them removed by a professional in the future.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals or tools to prevent damaging your natural lashes or causing harm to your skin or eyes.

Removing Kiss lash extensions may be intimidating, but if you follow the right steps and are patient, it can be done safely at home. Just remember to be gentle, use the right tools, and take your time. If you have never done this before and you are not confident in your skill, it’s best to leave it to the professionals but you can also gain confidence over time if you practice removal of Kiss lash extensions.
