Is it normal to lose lash extensions every day?

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. This is perfectly normal and is to be expected with or without eyelash extensions.


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.

One to five eyelashes fall out a day, depending on the person, their age, health, lifestyle and a thousand other factors. It is perfectly normal and is produced with or without eyelash extensions. Therefore, about 20% of our eyelashes fall out every week. On average, you lose about 1 to 5 natural lashes a day.

This means that if the eyelash extensions are attached to the natural lashes, that is the number of eyelashes that will fall out. If you have oily skin or if you have used makeup that contains oil, some of it will always be stored in your eyelashes. A new set of eyelash extensions, also known as semi-permanent lashes, should last approximately two to three weeks, depending on where you placed them and other factors. In addition, following the eyelash extension aftercare instructions provided is essential to ensure adequate retention.

We'll break it down into two main categories: what happens in the eyelash salon and what happens after the appointment. If the adhesive hardens before the extension adheres to the natural eyelash, there will be poor adhesion and eventually the lashes will peel off after a day or two. There's a reason eyelash tape is on every eyelash professional's list of must-have eyelash extension tools. However, if you don't clean your lashes regularly, this grease will stay there, gradually breaking down the eyelash glue.

Do not use an eyelash growth serum that contains oils, as this will adversely affect the performance of the adhesive. If you choose to use eye makeup, such as an oil-free mascara, be sure to gently clean your lashes at the end of the day to avoid damaging them. Although you can't change the rate at which natural lashes fall out, you can do your best to keep eyelash extensions on existing lashes for as long as possible. This process is endless and slowly fades away only as a person ages or when bad habits damage the eyelashes.

So, tell your customers not to be surprised when they see extensions falling, this is totally normal and expected. Eyelash extensions will last longer than false eyelashes or mascara, but they will need to be replaced every 2-3 weeks, depending on where the extension was done. The truth is that there are many factors that contribute to eyelashes lasting a long time and this blog is here breaking it all down.
