Eyelash extensions are a popular way to enhance the look of your eyes, but it's normal for some of them to fall out the day of application. On average, you lose between 1 and 5 natural eyelashes a day, and this number increases with eyelash extensions. Factors such as age, health status, lifestyle, and oil-based makeup can all contribute to the loss of eyelash extensions. To maximize the lifespan of your extensions, it's important to use a sealant to protect them from water, dust, moisture, tears, grease, sweat, and dirt.
Additionally, you should clean and brush your eyelashes properly every day and sleep on your back or use a 3D mask. It's also important to note that each eyelash extension is attached to a separate natural eyelash, so it will fall out when the natural eyelash falls out. Medical conditions such as alopecia areata, trichotillomania's tangle, chemotherapy, and thyroid condition can cause eyelash extensions to fall out faster. A new set of eyelash extensions should last approximately two to three weeks depending on where you had them done and how well you take care of them. If you're noticing that your eyelash extensions are falling out faster than expected, it's important to speak with your technician. They can help you determine the cause and provide advice on how to maximize the lifespan of your extensions.
With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy beautiful lashes for weeks at a time.
