Do Eyelash Extensions Affect Natural Lashes?

If applied correctly, eyelash extensions will have no effect on natural eyelashes. For them to be applied correctly, it is important to have them done by a professional. Eyelash extensions are attached directly to the lash line and tend to last until natural lashes fall out. If the extension is too heavy, it will stress the natural eyelashes to which it is attached, leading to premature detachment and natural loss of eyelashes.

Over time, this could cause your natural lashes to look thinner and thinner as your eyelash extensions start to fall out. Sometimes, extensions can disrupt the natural growth cycle of eyelashes. Your eyelash technician may have used too little adhesive and eyelash extensions may not adhere properly to the natural eyelash. If this has occurred, the eyelash extensions will simply come off.

To promote faster eyelash growth, over-the-counter eyelash growth serums contain special components. It is also important to take breaks between extensions so that natural eyelashes have time to recover. Oils can reduce the retention of eyelash extensions and cause them to fall out prematurely. This could be due to natural oils produced by the body or ingredients in products used on the face. Usually, if you lose a lot of natural lashes with extensions, the problem is with your eyelash technician.

Because they are applied one at a time to a single natural lash, natural lashes can freely go through the growth cycle and eventually come off with the extension attached. If you're willing to risk your natural lashes for long, thick, full lashes of your dreams, there are a few things you can do to minimize trauma. Make sure that your technician uses proper adhesive and applies the right weight of extensions for your natural lashes. Also, be sure that they use nail tips instead of glue directly on your lashes. Finally, take breaks between extensions so that your natural lashes have time to recover.
