How to Make Your Eyelash Extensions Last 4 Weeks

Most people want their eyelash extensions to look great for 2 to 4 weeks. During that time, the extensions should remain full and fluffy. When they start to look and feel bad, it's time to go back to your eyelash artist for a retouch. Touchups are usually cheaper than the original set of eyelashes.

On average, eyelash extensions will last 2 to 4 weeks. It's normal to lose a few lashes each day as natural lashes progress through the hair growth cycle. According to our research, most people prefer to book refills every 3 weeks (60.1%) in order to maintain a full lash line. Clementina Richardson, founder of the Envious Lashes salons, states that properly applied eyelash extensions can last up to six weeks.

When a natural eyelash falls out, so will the false eyelash attached to it. Heat can also damage your eyelashes; if you get too close to an open oven, the heat can cause your eyelashes to scorch and curl. Eyelash extensions require maintenance and upkeep; they have a growth cycle similar to other body hair, and the glue that holds an eyelash extension can weaken and dissolve over time. If you've had a bad application, it's best to wait a few weeks before re-testing your eyelashes, as this gives the hair cycle time to progress and ensures that your natural eyelashes don't get too stressed.

It's important to wash and brush your eyelashes daily, but excessive handling can affect the adhesive bond. The cost of eyelash extensions can vary widely depending on your location, your eyelash technician, the type of eyelashes being used, and the style you want. It's essential to use an eyelash shampoo every day, especially on the day you get your extensions done. To make your eyelash extensions last longer, you should avoid exposure to steam, rubbing your eyes or sleeping on your stomach as these factors can damage your lashes.

You should also wait at least 24 hours after applying your eyelashes so that they are not exposed to any type of moisture. If you're a chronic eye fanatic, you have to quit this habit if you want to continue using eyelash extensions. At some point, your eyelash technician may have no other option but to propose a completely new set. Eyelash extensions are great for those who don't know how to apply eye shadow or who don't want to worry about it every day. To make sure your lashes last 4 weeks or more, it's important to follow all of the instructions given by your technician and use an appropriate shampoo for cleaning them.
