Everything You Need to Know About Eyelash Loss and Growth

Do you ever wonder how many eyelashes you shed in two weeks? It's normal to lose between one and five lashes per day, and over the course of two weeks, you can lose up to twenty percent of all your lashes. On average, we lose about five natural lashes every day. In a week, that adds up to 35 lashes (i.e., approximately 20% of the eyelash extensions in a set). This is considered normal, healthy eyelash loss.

Everyone is born with a predetermined number of hair follicles, and each individual eyelash is programmed to reach a certain length before falling out. This is the intermediate phase in which an eyelash ends its life cycle and prepares for a new one to grow. But once you have the extensions, you'll notice after 2 or 3 weeks that you've lost a lot of eyelashes. The season of eyelash loss is a completely normal thing that usually occurs during the spring and fall season.

Growing at a rate of about 0.15 mm per day, eyelashes can grow up to 9 mm in length and can take about two months to regenerate when removed. We recommend the Revitalash eyelash growth serum for customers who want to lend a hand to their lashes. But don't worry, like everything on earth, alive or not, eyelashes go through a natural cycle of fall and growth. With Flawless Lashes your lashes can grow, move and fall just like they would without extensions.

Eyelashes are also the most pigmented of all human hair, so they don't usually turn gray. It's important to understand the natural cycle of eyelash loss and growth so that you can take proper care of your lashes. Knowing how many eyelashes shed in two weeks will help you determine when it's time to replace your extensions or use an eyelash growth serum. Taking care of your lashes will ensure that they stay healthy and beautiful for years to come.
