How long do eyelash extensions last for

Eyelash extensions typically last as long as your natural lash cycle, which is about 6-8 weeks. However, most salons recommend touch-ups or "fill-ins" every 2-3 weeks to maintain a full, lush appearance. Here's why:

  1. Natural Lash Shedding: Just like the hairs on your head, your eyelashes go through a growth cycle, which includes shedding. This means that as your natural lashes fall out due to their growth cycle, the extensions attached to them will fall out as well.

  2. Care and Maintenance: The longevity of eyelash extensions also depends on how well you care for them. Being gentle with your lashes and avoiding rubbing or pulling can help extend their lifespan. It's also recommended to avoid oil-based products and heavy creams around the eyes, as these can break down the adhesive.

  3. Type of Extensions: There are different types of lash extensions, like synthetic, silk, or mink, and the kind of adhesive used can also affect longevity.

  4. Activities: Frequent swimming, steam rooms, saunas, or heavy workouts might shorten the lifespan of your lash extensions due to the increased exposure to moisture.

  5. Application Technique: Proper application by a skilled and certified lash technician can also influence how long the extensions last. Incorrect application can lead to clumping or premature shedding.

To keep eyelash extensions looking their best, regular fill-ins and proper aftercare are essential. Always follow the care instructions provided by your lash technician.
