The full cycle of eyelash growth can take anywhere from four to eleven months to complete. During the first phase, known as the anagen phase, eyelashes actively grow for around 30 to 45 days. At any given time, approximately 40% of your eyelashes are in this phase. Each tab will continue to grow until it reaches a certain length and then stop.
The length of eyelash extensions will depend on the natural eyelash growth cycle. Your natural eyelashes go through three stages of growth, and it is normal to experience some natural eyelash loss during this process. When the natural eyelashes separate due to their growth cycle, the eyelash extension must still be attached. The second phase is called the catagenic phase, or transition phase.
This phase lasts between 14 and 21 days, during which your lashes will reach their peak strength and length. Within this 14-21 day cycle, the follicle will start to shrink, causing the eyelashes to shed and stop actively growing. If a Catagen tab is pulled off at the end of this phase, it will not cause any damage to the follicle. However, it will take time for a new tab to appear since the follicle needs to complete its full cycle through all three phases.
During this phase of hair loss, the newly grown natural eyelashes begin to slowly detach from the hair follicle to make room for new ones. The third and final phase is called the telogen phase. This is when the eyelashes naturally fall out and it can take between one and two months before the next anagen phase begins and a new delicate eyelash starts to grow in its place. If you have been using Uklash regularly but haven't seen any changes yet, your eyelashes may not have completed a full cycle of growth.
Skin inflammation in the areas surrounding the eyes can also cause delayed eyelash growth and may have many underlying causes. To maintain strong and healthy-looking lashes, it is important not to sleep with makeup on as this can have a negative effect on your eyelashes and cause premature skin aging due to lack of hydration. There is some evidence that castor oil may promote eyelash growth, but more scientific research is needed to confirm this.
