Do Eyelash extensions make your lashes fall out?
Your lashes are on a lash cycle which means they naturally fall out at the end of their cycle. You naturally lose around 1 – 5 lashes everyday. You lose approximately 20% of your lashes every 2 weeks. After 30 days you have gone through a full lash cycle. The cycle works in three stages; growth, transition, and resting. At the end of a resting phase the natural lash will fall out and be replaced with a new lash. Your natural lashes continue this cycle as normal even with lash extensions attached to them. Eyelash extensions don’t actually make your lashes fall out. They will simply fall out with your natural lash on its cycle. If you are losing more than 3- 5 lashes a day there may be something wrong and we recommend talking with your Eyelash Club lash tech.
Do Eyelash extensions ruin your natural lashes?
No, lash extensions will only hurt your lashes if they are applied incorrectly.This is why it’s crucial you go to a reliable lash tech. In fact your lashes may actually become healthier due to you not applying/ removing mascara or strips on a daily basis. Make sure you are following proper after care instructions after a fresh set or fill. Some things included are not rubbing your eyes, to make sure your lash extensions don’t fall out prematurely. Be sure not to get your lashes wet for a minimum of 24 hours after your lashes have been applied to assure the glue is fully set. Other complications you might experience could be from the glue irritating your eyes. If you feel any irritation at all during the application process let your lash tech know immediately. Allergic reactions to the glue can become severe, so if you naturally already have sensitive skin be sure to let your lash tech know so they can use sensitive glue on you. The main thing you need to do is make sure you have a good lash tech that has experience with lashing. All lash techs at the Eyelash Club have hundreds of hours of training to ensure the health of your natural lashes. Check out our lash tech’s work on our instagram @Eyelashclubdotcom.
Do Eyelash extensions make your natural lashes shorter?
Your lashes should never have any sort of damage from your extensions. The two biggest things to keep your lashes strong and healthy are to take care of them and make sure your lash tech is properly qualified. To take care of your lashes it’s important to be gentle while cleaning, sleeping, and only use gentle products without oils around your eyes. When getting your lashes done, you should have the extensions applied to fully isolated natural lashes. Your natural lashes are all growing at different speeds. If extensions are glued to more than one lash, this will cause irritation and pain as your lashes are growing as they will grow at different speeds and start to pull the other out.
Overall your extensions won’t make your natural lashes shorter but if you have any concerns about your lashes or any discomfort at all be sure to voice that to your Eyelash Club technician. If they dismiss you or seem unhelpful, immediately ask for a removal and go to another lash tech. Eyelash extensions that are applied properly should never be painful or damage your natural lashes.
