THE LASH CYCLE – The reason why we need lash fills and get to see our favourite lash artist every two to three weeks! 💜
As a lash artist, it is important to know exactly what the lash cycle is, why it happens and how it affects lash extensions.
On average, every person loses 3 – 4 lashes per day, and each week you lose about 20% of your entire set of eyelashes. As natural eyelashes shed, the eyelash extension that is attached will shed with it. All the fallen lashes are immediately replaced by new “baby lashes” that have already started growing in their place.
The client’s diligence when it comes to personal hygiene and lash aftercare will also influence the retention of the extensions. While you can’t control your client’s behaviour outside of the salon, you can make sure that they are well-informed!
