Why extensions don't last

There are several reasons why lash extensions may not last as long as expected:

  1. Natural lash shedding: Our natural lashes have a lifecycle, and they naturally shed and regrow. As the natural lashes shed, the lash extensions attached to them will fall off as well.

  2. Improper aftercare: Inadequate or incorrect aftercare practices can significantly impact the longevity of lash extensions. Not following the recommended guidelines, such as avoiding oil-based products or excessive rubbing of the eyes, can cause premature lash extension loss.

  3. Poor adhesive quality: The quality of the lash adhesive used during the application plays a crucial role in the longevity of lash extensions. If the adhesive is of low quality or not applied correctly, it may result in poor bond strength and cause the lashes to detach sooner.

  4. Excessive moisture or humidity: Exposure to excessive moisture or humidity, such as steam rooms, saunas, or swimming pools, can weaken the bond between the natural lash and the extension, causing them to come off prematurely.

  5. Rubbing or pulling on lashes: Frequent rubbing or pulling on the lash extensions can cause them to loosen or detach. It's important to resist the urge to tug or play with the lashes to ensure their longevity.

  6. Sleeping position: Sleeping on the stomach or side with the face pressed against the pillow can put pressure on the lashes, leading to their premature loss. Sleeping on the back is recommended to minimize friction and maintain lash extension retention.

  7. Poor overall lash health: If the natural lashes are weak, damaged, or unhealthy, the lash extensions may not adhere properly or last as long. It is essential to maintain good lash health by keeping them clean, conditioned, and free from any eye infections or conditions.

To ensure longer-lasting lash extensions, it's crucial to follow proper aftercare instructions, choose a skilled and experienced lash technician, and maintain good lash hygiene. Regular touch-ups and fills can also help maintain the fullness and longevity of your lash extensions.
