What happens to your eyelashes after extensions?

If applied correctly, eyelash extensions will have no effect on natural lashes. For eyelash extensions to be applied correctly, it is important to have them done by a professional. Eyelash extensions are applied directly to the lash line and tend to last until natural lashes fall out. One of the most common things I've seen in my career is that clients damage their own eyelashes by pulling and poking around.

If you put on your extensions, you're more likely to remove your own natural lashes as well. This can make your lashes look plump and thinner than before you put on your extensions. Nor can I stress enough the importance of aftercare in keeping eyelashes healthy. Proper aftercare will not only keep your lashes healthy, but it will also prolong the time between fillers and make your lashes look fuller for longer.

In severe cases of not cleaning your eyelashes, microscopic mites can make your eyes inflamed and itchy. Like the hair on your head, eyelashes can get greasy and greasy if they aren't washed. This is a perfect breeding ground for Demodex mites. When you put on eyelash extensions, the cycle continues normally.

Since each eyelash extension is connected to a natural eyelash, extensions fall out in the same cycle as natural lashes. If a customer asks, “Will my lashes grow back after eyelash extensions? You can assure them that their eyelashes continue to grow even with the extensions on. It's all part of the eyelash growth cycle. There is no need to let natural lashes break up between eyelash extension sessions when applied correctly.

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. But do eyelash extensions ruin your natural lashes? Whether you're an eyelash technician who gets asked this question by customers or you're curious to buy yourself a new pair of eyelashes, we have answers for you. If, unfortunately, an eyelash technician fixed your eyelash extensions and didn't apply them correctly and you made one of the three mistakes above (extensions that are too heavy, sticky, or shaped like a nail head), your natural lashes could be damaged.

Eyelash extensions won't cause natural lashes to fall out faster than normal: natural lashes simply follow their growth cycle. As for me, I could try an eyelash extension and skip the false ones so I don't have to find out from personal experience. So let's address the common question: “Do eyelash extensions make your natural lashes shorter? If you're anything like us, every time you open your Instagram you're probably bombarded with beautiful before-and-after photos of women with eyelash extensions. To avoid damaging natural lashes, eyelash extensions should be carefully selected (length and thickness) and correctly applied to one natural eyelash at a time.

Taking these two variables into account will allow you to select an eyelash extension that balances with natural lashes.
