Eyelash extensions typically last between six to eight weeks. An eyelash extension’s lifespan depends on factors such as the natural lash growth cycle, aftercare and maintenance, and individual preferences of eyelash type. Since extensions are attached to natural lashes, they gradually fall out as the lashes go through their growth cycle.
Even though the time eyelash extensions take to apply is long, it is worth investing to get beautiful lashes that last for weeks.
Avoid rubbing, pulling, or tugging on your lashes, as this can cause the extensions to loosen or fall out prematurely. Be mindful when cleansing or drying your face, and gently pat your lashes dry instead of rubbing them.
Good hygiene is essential for maintaining eyelash extensions. Cleanse your lashes regularly using a lash extension-safe cleanser or a mild, oil-free cleanser. Use a clean spoolie brush to comb through the lashes gently.
Oil-based makeup products, cleansers, and removers can weaken the adhesive used for lash extensions. Opt for water-based or oil-free makeup products and cleansers around the eye area to prevent premature extensions loosening.
Mascara is usually unnecessary with lash extensions since they provide a fuller appearance. If you must use mascara, choose a water-based and lash extension-friendly formula. Apply it only to the tips of the lashes, and avoid applying too much pressure when removing the mascara.
Sleep on your back to avoid friction between lashes and pillow. Alternatively, use a silk or satin pillowcase, which creates less friction and is gentler on your lashes.
While keeping your lashes clean is important, excessive water, steam, or humidity exposure can weaken the adhesive. Avoid prolonged exposure to these conditions, such as steamy showers or saunas, for the first 24 to 48 hours after getting the extensions.
Over time, lash extensions shed as your natural lashes go through their growth cycle. Schedule regular infills or touch-ups every two to three weeks to maintain a complete and consistent look. This helps replace any fallen extensions and keeps your lashes looking fresh.
Remember, every individual’s lashes and maintenance routine can differ, so it’s crucial to follow the specific aftercare instructions provided by your lash technician. They can offer personalized advice for safe eyelash extensions and recommendations for making them last longer based on your unique circumstances.
