Having beautiful lavish lashes is amazing! So to keep those lashes looking luscious fills are recommended on average about 2-3 weeks apart. Usually and ideally, you should come back for a refill around the second week. During this period, not a lot of your lashes will shed, and they will still be easy to work with. However, if you come back with less than 40% of lashes, you will need a new set.
Some people have faster or slower growth cycles. There are several factors that can cause those extensions to shed before their time, this will depend on you and your upkeep, as well as maintenance.
Here are some skincare tips to help:
Don't use oils- avoid oils in makeup and skincare, as oils breakdown lash glue and don't allow it to completely set when it is not yet dry.
Don't use lash curlers or mascara- your lashes are already long and beautiful. using mascara causes them to clump together and can cause you to ripe your lashes out if you curl them as extensions are glued onto your natural lash.
Avoid water and sweat- try to expose your lashes to minimum heat and water, especially during the first 48 hours after just having your extensions done. Let the glue settle and bond with your natural lashes, and slowly go back to your everyday routine.
DON'T FORGET TO WASH YOUR LASHES!- When you clean your lashes regularly, you are helping to keep your natural oils at bay. Cleansing regularly also helps prevent premature lash shedding. ... THE SCARY TRUTH: When you skip your daily lash cleanse, your lash follicles can get clogged with oil, dirt and debris, which can make it difficult for new lashes to grow and can cause a bacteria to build up overtime.
Once bacteria starts to build up, it can cause your oil glands along the lash line to get inflamed which will result in lash loss. This is a condition called Blepharitis and you DO NOT want it.
The good news is that this can all be prevented by simply cleaning your eyelashes on a daily basis.
