Following after care is KEY to having the best results. Trust me, we know when you didn't because you'll be too faded, missing too many strokes or your hair strokes will blend a little leaving you with a fuller look. Wetting your brows, picking off scabs, using too much ointment and wearing making around or on the brows will all effect your results! Please be responsible so you can have great results. Plan accordingly so you don't have to wear makeup around the brows for a good week. Get your hair washed by a friend of you can't figure out a way to do it yourself. Buy a silk pillow if you must sleep on your stomach or side.
