Eyelash fillers are individual lashes or fans that fill in the gaps in the eyelash extensions that may appear after 2 to 3 weeks, due to natural hair loss. It is important to consult with an eyelash stylist to determine the best cleaning and maintenance routine for your extensions. A classic set of lashes should look full and lush four to five weeks after the initial consultation, but if they appear sparse after a few days, there may be an underlying issue. Specialized cleansers and extension products are ideal for cleaning them, as they are gentle on your eyelashes and work better than water.
It is important to understand your own eyelash cycle in order to determine how often you should get infills. A set of lashes full of extensions may look great for a couple of weeks, but naturally the lashes will start to fall out. Lash education is key to getting the most out of your extensions, so it is important to talk to your stylist about your individual eyelash growth. Ramy Gafni, famous makeup and eyebrow guru, advises opting for extensions that align with the shape of existing lashes, rather than extra long and spectacular lashes.
Playing with extensions can not only remove false eyelashes, but it can also end up damaging natural lashes. The typical lifespan of eyelash extensions is approximately six to eight weeks, depending on your own eyelash cycle (which can last as little as two weeks and as long as eight weeks). This is due to the natural eyelash cycle, which causes natural lashes to peel off and newborn babies' lashes take their place. Maintaining a regular and timely routine of alternating between full sets and refills will ensure that your eyelashes always look their best.
That special moment when, every few weeks, you can rest and relax while your stylist enhances those delicious lashes.
