How Often Should You Give Your Lashes a Break from Lash Extensions?

To ensure that eyelashes remain healthy and strong after the constant use of eyelash extensions, it is recommended to remove them every six to eight months. This allows the eyelid line to be thoroughly cleaned after months of makeup and bacteria build-up, and also gives natural lashes the opportunity to grow and thicken. For those who believe that their eyelashes need a break from time to time, the reasoning is simple. Eyelash extensions are a type of beauty treatment that involves attaching artificial eyelashes to natural eyelashes.

If you have not experienced any loss of eyelashes or irritation due to repeated use of extensions, and you clean and care for them regularly, then you probably don't need to worry about giving your natural lashes a rest. When a customer asks me if they should take a break from their eyelash extensions, I keep two things in mind. Firstly, if you are on a budget, taking a break can help you save some money. Secondly, if you notice an increase in itching or redness, it may be time for a break.

This is usually not the case unless, of course, you clean the eyelash line rather roughly with your fingers. Remember that your natural lashes work in a cycle just like your hair; there are new small lashes that grow constantly and older lashes that fall out when it's time to disappear. If you need to grow your eyebrows or eyelashes, consider using the Lash Affair Serum and applying it twice a day for even faster results. And if you took a break for several months, you'll probably need to start from scratch with a new pair of eyelashes.
