When it comes to eyelash extensions, it's important to understand that regular maintenance is key. Generally, it's recommended to get a refill every two to three weeks. This is because everyone's eyelashes and goals are different and require different levels of upkeep. Having an open line of communication with your eyelash technician is essential for achieving the best results.
Most technicians suggest refilling your lashes every two to three weeks, although you may be able to wait up to four weeks depending on the retention and maintenance of the extensions, as well as the skin care products you use. For optimal results, it's best to get a refill within three weeks of getting a full set. After this period, it may be more cost-effective to get a new full set. On average, eyelash extensions last two to four weeks.
It's normal to lose a few lashes each day as natural lashes progress through their growth cycle. According to our research, most people prefer to get refills every three weeks in order to maintain a full lash line. To extend the lifespan of your extensions and reduce the number of refills you need in a year, there are certain steps you can take. If you're still losing a lot of lashes after following these steps or if your extensions fall out before your natural lashes do, you may be overprocessing them.
Once you have a full set of extensions, you'll need to come in periodically for refills. This will help prevent dryness and peeling, but it will also cause some of the extensions to soften and fall out. The bond between your natural lashes and the extensions weakens over time due to oil or other impurities. Your monthly salon visits are essential for keeping your eyelashes healthy and getting the most out of your extensions. Your technician will give you recommendations at each visit about how to care for your lashes and extensions.
The full eyelash cycle is about 90 days ± 5 days, depending on genetics. When it comes to eyelash extensions, it's best not to take any risks with your first experience. To ensure that your extensions look their best, it's important to keep your natural lashes in good condition as they are the foundation for the extensions.
