What happens when you stop eyelash extensions?

The rate at which natural lashes grow varies from person to person. On average, a natural eyelash grows half an inch per month and takes 90 days, more or less 5 days, to completely shed. Therefore, once you stop using the extensions, it will take nine to 12 weeks for the new natural lashes to grow back to their original state. If you take a 4-week break to stop your extensions, you should see your natural eyelash line grow back.

If you don't, it has been damaged and continuing with the extensions will only cause more damage. For me, it's been years since my last eyelash extensions and my natural lashes never fully recovered. They are less crowded now than they were in the days before the extension.

won't cause your natural lashes to fall out faster than normal: natural lashes simply follow their growth cycle.

To avoid damaging natural lashes, eyelash extensions should be carefully selected (length and thickness) and correctly applied to one natural eyelash at a time. After having Diego and literally not even having time to brush my teeth, I let go of my eyelash extensions. I had very long eyelashes, but almost straight and not dark, so the only reason I put on eyelash extensions was because I was tired of curling them every morning and putting on mascara. An eyelash growth serum with an innovative formula that helps improve the length, volume and thickness of eyelashes and eyebrows.

Taking these two variables into account will allow you to select an eyelash extension that balances with natural lashes. Another factor related to the problem that some may have with the natural weakening of the eyelashes after the use of eyelash extensions may be related to the size and length of the extension, since the heavier the glue-laden extension on natural eyelashes, the more likely it is that the hair will break, so it is advisable to consult the expert before ordering the longest and thickest eyelash extensions available, since it is possible that eyelashes in poor condition cannot withstand them for long periods of time. There is no need to let natural lashes break up between eyelash extension sessions when applied correctly. One of my clients arrived at the hairdresser a couple of days before she booked to remove her eyelash extensions, worried that she wasn't doing the right thing by taking them off and wanted a second opinion.

The interesting (some would say daunting) thing about eyelash extensions is that you'll never be able to see progress while the technician is working; you just have to sit back and trust that they are creating beautiful lashes customized to the shape of your eyes. So it's no wonder that, like thousands of girls, I've always wanted to have longer, thicker eyelashes. You see, the reason I'll never put on eyelash extensions again has nothing to do with the procedure itself.
