Is it normal to lose eyelash extensions the first day?

The extensions are placed on lashes that are in the middle of the last stage of their cycle and there is no way of knowing the exact time when the eyelashes will naturally fall out, so it's not uncommon for a newly extended eyelash to come off the day of application. The eyelash extensions are meticulously placed 1 to 2 mm from the eyelash line. However, your natural lashes are constantly growing. This means that the location of the base of the extension is also growing further and further away from the eyelash line.

Try to comb your lashes more gently from the middle to the ends closer to the filling date to avoid removing overgrown extensions from your natural lashes. How long eyelash extensions last depends on multiple factors, including how customers care for them. Before you pick up the phone and ask your eyelash artist, you should check if your natural eyelashes fall out (you can see a white tip) or just the extensions section. Due to the natural fall of eyelashes on a daily basis, regular “refilling” or “retouching” is necessary to keep your eyelash extensions looking their best.

There's a reason eyelash tape is on every eyelash professional's list of must-have eyelash extension tools. When the natural eyelash reaches maturity at the end of its growth cycle, the eyelash extension attached to it will also fall out. Ever since I got my eyelash extensions, some of them fell out every day without an eyelash on. Full growth can take a few weeks, so eyelash extensions usually last between 2 and 4 weeks.

This is to maximize the lifespan of eyelash extensions and not damage young lashes that are just starting any cycle. Be sure to give detailed aftercare instructions, so that no one has to deal with eyelash extensions falling out prematurely. Usually, if you lose a lot of natural lashes with extensions, the problem is with your eyelash technician.
