Why am i losing so many lash extensions?

Your eyelash technician may have used too little adhesive and eyelash extensions may not adhere properly to the natural eyelash. If this has occurred, the eyelash extensions will simply come off. Often, several eyelashes reach the final phase at the same time and they all come off as a group. This is known as the detachment phase.

A healthy and balanced diet results in healthy eyelashes. The adverse is also true, since deficiencies also appear. Vitamins and supplements can also affect if you have long, strong eyelashes or weak and brittle eyelashes and hair follicles. Using mascara, especially waterproof mascara, can damage natural eyelashes.

Many masks contain ingredients that cause build-up on eyelashes and eyelash lines, which can lead to damage and hair loss. When mascara is applied to eyelash extensions, the ingredients can compromise the adhesive and weaken the bond, causing the extensions to peel off the eyelashes and come off. Usually, if you lose a lot of natural eyelashes with extensions, the problem is with your eyelash technician. Or it could be a glue quality problem.

We found some interesting cases where women weren't very used to their eyelash extensions, but were too embarrassed to go back to their eyelash artist to have them removed. So they ended up tearing out their eyelashes with their bare hands. In most cases, you'll also end up removing your natural lashes. Your best bet would be to retire them professionally or wait for them to come out naturally.

Keep your lashes strong and healthy. The eyelash extensions are meticulously placed 1-2 mm from the lash line. However, your natural eyelashes are constantly growing. This means that the location of the base of the extension also grows further and further away from the lash line.

Aim to comb your lashes very gently from the middle to the tip closest to your filling appointment to avoid tearing off the overgrown extensions of your natural lashes. It is recommended not to wet the new eyelash extensions for at least 24 to 48 hours after applying them, as the glue is still hardening. If you wet your new extensions, they can crystallize and cause irritation, causing rubbing that is harmful to the eyes. Once they have completely dried, you can swim and exercise as usual.

Thyroid medications can change the environment in the eyelash area, causing natural eyelashes to become more oily, dry, or brittle. It's always a good idea to explain to your customers how to properly care for their eyelash extensions, both after applying them and weeks later. The lifespan of eyelash extensions also depends on how well the extensions adhere to the customer's natural eyelashes. If any of these situations apply to you, you may need to contact your current eyelash technician and look for someone else.

If you can see a single eyelash attached to an extension, you can breathe out knowing that it is a natural part of the cycle. Eyelashes, eyebrows, arm hair and leg hair have a relatively short active growth phase that lasts 30 to 45 days. They are fantastic products, but they make eyelashes fall out more quickly because they accelerate the growth cycle of natural eyelashes. Store your eyelash cleanser in your gym bag and wash your eyelashes after training, before leaving the gym.

Before you pick up the phone and question your eyelash artist, you should check if your eyelashes fall out with natural eyelashes (you might see a white tip) or just with the extensions section. We all have different sleeping positions that make us feel more comfortable at night, but those who sleep on their stomach or in a strange position may have problems with drooping eyelash extensions. For best results, it is recommended that you shake it before use and between appointments if you want to get the most out of your beloved eyelash adhesive. The environment can have an impact on the lifespan of your client's eyelash extensions, as it can affect the effectiveness of the adhesive used.
