When is the Best Time to Apply Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions are a great way to enhance your look and make your eyes stand out. But when is the best time to attach them? The answer lies in understanding the eyelash growth cycle. The full eyelash cycle is around 90-100 days, which is divided into three phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen. The anagen phase is when the eyelashes are actively growing and are too delicate to support an extension.

The catagen phase is when the eyelashes have reached their full length and are strong enough to hold an extension. This phase lasts for 2-3 weeks, making it the ideal time to apply extensions. The telogen phase is when the eyelashes are in a resting state and are slowly detaching from the follicle. During this phase, extensions can still be applied, but they may not last as long as those applied during the catagen phase.

It's important to note that if an extension is applied to an anagen eyelash, it will slowly begin to fall out due to excess weight at the tip of the eyelash, and it may break or remove it completely from the follicle. This is why it's important to educate your customers about the shedding cycle and how it will affect their extensions. Using eyelash extension products, such as eyelash enhancement serum, during resting and hair loss phases can help you see results more quickly. It's also important to ensure that each natural eyelash is isolated and not too much glue is used during application. By understanding the eyelash growth cycle and applying eyelash extensions correctly, you can enjoy beautiful lashes without needing a break from them.
