How Long Does it Take for Eyelashes to Return to Normal After Extensions?

On average, a natural eyelash grows half an inch per month and takes 90 days, plus or minus 5 days, to completely peel off. This means that once you stop using extensions, it will take nine to twelve weeks for your natural eyelashes to return to their original state. However, eyelash extensions can cause damage or tear natural eyelashes. If natural eyelashes are lost due to extensions, they usually grow back within a few months.

Eyelash extensions that stick to natural eyelashes can cause some damage. However, natural eyelashes usually grow back in a matter of months. The long-term use of synthetic eyelashes involves risks, especially with regard to the condition of natural eyelashes, as they can suffer trauma and thinning, and in some cases, total loss of natural eyelashes may occur. There is also a risk of medical eye problems such as conjunctivitis and the long-term problem of blepharitis, which could mean that the future use of eyelash extensions is no longer considered.

To ensure that natural eyelashes recover after the constant use of eyelash extensions, it is recommended to remove them every six to eight months. This allows the eyelid line to be thoroughly cleaned after months of makeup and bacteria accumulation, and also for natural eyelashes to grow and thicken. We recommend a minimum break of two months after eyelash extensions to allow natural eyelashes to fully recover and regrow. Eyelash extensions are fibers that stick to natural eyelashes to create thicker, longer lashes.

Another factor in the problem that some people may have with the natural weakening of the eyelashes after using eyelash extensions may be related to the size and length of the extension. The heavier the glue-loaded extension on the natural lash, the more likely it is that the hair will break. Therefore, it is advisable to consult an expert before ordering the longest and thickest eyelash extensions available, as lashes in poor condition may not be able to use them for prolonged periods of time.
