What Causes Eyelash Extensions to Fall Out?

It's normal to lose 3 to 5 eyelashes per day as part of the natural cycle. But if you lose most of your eyelash extensions during the first week, that's not normal. Eyelash extensions are placed so that the natural cycle continues as usual, and the fall of eyelash extensions reflects the natural fall of the eyelashes. Extensions usually last between 2 and 4 weeks, but your natural eyelashes are constantly growing.

To avoid tearing off the overgrown extensions of your natural eyelashes, try to comb them gently from the middle to the ends when the filling appointment approaches. Mascara can break down the glue that holds your eyelashes together, so it's best to avoid it when you have extensions. Water and oil can also stop the glue from doing its job, so avoid moisture for 24 hours after application. It's important to understand that eyelash loss is a normal part of the growth cycle, and following after-care instructions is essential for proper retention.

Applying just the right amount of eyelash glue is key to using extensions in the long term, as it creates a more natural and professional look and keeps the hair follicle healthy.
