We recommend a minimum of two months of rest after eyelash extensions to allow natural eyelashes to fully recover and regrow. When new customers arrive at the salon, they don't know if eyelash extensions can cause irritation and discomfort. If clients notice redness, itching, swelling, or even pain around the eye area, it is strongly recommended to give up eyelash extensions. There are some benefits to taking a break from eyelash extensions that should not be overlooked. First of all, it can give your natural eyelashes a chance to rest and recover.
If you use eyelash extensions all the time, your natural lashes can become weak and brittle. Taking a break will allow them to grow stronger again. Although the serum had worked really well and my natural eyelashes looked great with the mascara on, I had to return to my first love, eyelash extensions. This gives your eyelash cycle time to restart on its own, with those baby lashes growing nicely and strongly.
This is because, as natural eyelashes grow, they cannot support the weight of the extensions, which in turn causes the extensions to twist or fall out and, potentially, to be lost prematurely. Personally, I do less makeup when I have eyelash extensions, so even though my eyelashes are fake, I feel more natural if that makes sense. Most good eyelash serums contain conditioning and stimulating ingredients, which can improve eyelashes when used regularly. Eyelash extensions are a luxury and, thankfully, you can continue to fill in as long as your natural lashes can handle it. Therefore, if a client's natural eyelashes are damaged or too weak for this reason, look for healthy eyelashes before applying new extensions. The purpose of this story is not to point out how slow I was during my eyelash pause, but rather to highlight the power of eyelash extensions.
Second, eyelash extensions may not look as good when you put them back on after a break, as it may take some time for the eyelash artist to get back to looking the right way. At the end of eyelash growth cycles, many customers get impatient waiting for their extensions to fall out and start pulling and pulling their eyelashes. For the most part, eyelashes grow and fall out, so if a customer buys lightweight extensions suitable for their own natural eyelashes with high-quality glue and regular fillers, their natural eyelashes should be perfectly fine. Their biggest concern is that eyelash extensions are straining your natural lashes or causing them to fall out faster than they should. Taking a break from eyelash extensions is an important part of maintaining healthy lashes. Not only does it give your natural lashes time to rest and recover but it also allows you to enjoy other beauty treatments such as lash serums or mascara without worrying about damaging your lashes.
Taking regular breaks from eyelash extensions, even if it's just for a few weeks at a time, can help keep your lashes healthy and strong.
