Will Eyelashes Grow Back After Extensions?

If you've ever had eyelash extensions, you may have wondered if your natural eyelashes will grow back after you take them off. The answer is yes, in most cases, your natural eyelashes will grow back within a few months. However, there are some cases where the eyelash follicle can be damaged due to the extensions or the glue used to stick them to the eyelids, causing temporary or even permanent damage. When it comes to taking care of your natural eyelashes, it's important to be mindful of how you treat them.

Rubbing hard to remove waterproof mascara, using a product that irritates the eye area, or even stress can cause eyelashes to fall out. To help promote healthy eyelash growth, you can use Latisse, a treatment that takes into account the long-term health of the eyelashes and allows them to look good without the application of mascara or the excessive use of eyelash curlers. If an eyelash falls out during this phase, it won't grow back immediately as the follicle must complete the cycle phase. During chemotherapy, eyelashes may fall out and not grow back for a while as this treatment causes a temporary interruption of the hair growth cycle.

If you're looking for a way to enhance your natural eyelashes without extensions, an eyelash lift and dye is a great option. When it comes to extensions, they adhere to natural eyelashes so as natural eyelashes grow, it can become increasingly difficult for the original eyelash to support the weight of the artificial extension and are therefore likely to break. However, if the follicles are healthy and the damage is minimal, full and natural eyelash growth can take up to six weeks. Extensions generally require glue and any glue that is applied to the eyelashes means allowing a certain amount of chemicals to come into close contact with the very sensitive hair follicles around the eyes, increasing the likelihood of infections.
