Eyelash extensions can last up to 4 weeks depending on the health and amount of natural lashes you have. Only a professional beautician can apply long lasting eyelash extensions that wont clump, fall out and look terrible.
How often should you refill your eyelash extensions
Eyelash extensions are a huge life saver when it comes to grabbing a few extra minutes of shut eye in the morning. But they do require regular maintenance to look their best. On average you should be getting a refill done every 2 to 3 weeks. If you wait any longer, your eyelash extensions will start to look like spider lashes. A refill at Dear Lashes can cost between $40 and $70, depending on how long its been since your initial set or refill.
Why are my eyelash extensions falling out
Don’t stress, this is perfectly normal. Unfortunately there isn’t a magical cure to stop your eyelash extensions from falling out over time. People naturally lose 2 to 5 lashes every day and this doesn’t include eyelashes falling out due to lack of proper maintenance. The most common reason for eyelash extensions falling out rapidly is caused by getting them wet in the first 24 hours. This is because the glue that connect the natural lash to the eyelash extension has not been given enough time to bond and strengthen.
Clumping eyelash extensions are a warning sign
Be wary of some beauty salons that can apply clumpy eyelash extensions that last upwards of 5 weeks. Eyelash extensions that last this long are most likely damaging your natural lashes. Imagine having 5 or more false lashes hanging off 1 natural lash. This breaks the natural lash and damages the hair growth cycle. Another big no no is not brushing your eyelash extensions. This can make them appear more full, but in the long run it will distort natural lashes.
