How many lashes do you lose with extensions?

This process is continuous, and people lose between 1 and 5 natural lashes every day. This means that you could lose 1 to 5 eyelash extensions per day. Eyelash extensions are placed in a way that allows the natural cycle to continue as usual. This means that natural lashes will peel off with their extension as they adhere.

Therefore, the detachment of eyelash extensions reflects the natural detachment of the eyelashes. In other words, if you normally lose 2 to 5 lashes per day, you're likely to lose about the same number of eyelash extensions per day. Full growth can take a few weeks, so eyelash extensions usually last between 2 and 4 weeks. Eyelash extensions don't damage eyelashes when applied correctly.

To avoid damaging natural lashes, eyelash extensions should be carefully selected (length and thickness) and correctly applied to one natural eyelash at a time. When eyelash extensions are applied correctly, they must absolutely respect the natural growth cycle of natural lashes. If the growth cycle of your natural lashes is carefully respected, eyelash extensions won't damage your natural lashes. Stay calm and take a deep breath, as falling out eyelash extensions may not be a sign of pessimism.

When mascara is applied to eyelash extensions, the ingredients can compromise the adhesive and weaken the bond, causing the extensions to detach from the eyelashes and peel off. Eyelash extensions won't cause natural lashes to fall out faster than normal: natural lashes simply follow their growth cycle. However, winter cold and dry air cause eyelash extensions to become brittle and eyelash glue can crumble. With just your natural lashes, it can be difficult to track your normal eyelash loss cycle, but with extensions applied it will be easier to see how your lashes fall out.

Taking these two variables into account will allow you to select an eyelash extension that balances with natural lashes. How long eyelash extensions last depends on multiple factors, including how customers care for them. There is no need to let natural lashes break up between eyelash extension sessions when applied correctly. There's a reason eyelash tape is on every eyelash professional's list of must-have eyelash extension tools.
