- How long do lash extensions last?
They will last until your natural lash sheds. Around 3-5 weeks. You have approximately 150 follicles in your upper lash line and approximately 70 in your lower lash line. They grow and shed at different rates. There is the anagen phase, which we refer to as baby hairs. Then there is the catagen phase, which we call the teenagers and the telogen phase, or the adult hairs. The baby hairs are too weak so we try to use the teenage hairs and the adults. On a daily basis you will be shedding lashes. This is normal and your lashes are healthy.
- What is the maintenance?
Maintenance depends on the strength of the adhesive used and how you care for them at home. We recommend you get a fill every 2 to 3 weeks to keep them looking full and beautiful.
- Will Extensions damage my own lashes?
They will not damage your eyelashes if they are applied correctly. Choosing the proper curl and diameter and using the right amount of adhesive prevents damage. You cannot self remove your lashes or pull them out as that will damage them. Keeping them cleaned daily is very important. Cleanse daily with Lash Cleanser.
