Eyelash Hair Cycle and the Best Time to Get Your Extensions Done.

Did you know the there are hair cycles to eyelashes? The hair cycle refers to the growth cycle of each hair, and eyelashes have a hair cycle, just like hair and body hair.


Phase 1. The early growth stage, when the hair life cycle begins.
Phase 2. Growing phase
Phase 3. Regression phase
Phase 4. Resting phase, when the hair enters the preparatory phase for hair growth after they fall out.

The lash hair cycle lasts about six weeks, from when it grows to when it falls out. The preparation stage for hair growth is about two months, making the entire cycle about four months.

So what's the relationship between the eyelash hair cycle and eyelash extensions?

Eyelashes naturally fall out when they enter the resting phase. It's best not to apply extensions to lashes going through the early growth stage because it could interfere with their growth. But you still want voluminous lashes? We carefully choose extensions with less stress and apply them carefully. We are very particular about not damaging your natural lashes and the time the extensions last. We recommend visiting back in about three weeks to keep them looking beautiful because that's the standard time for lashes to enter the dormant phase when they gradually start falling out.

Enjoy eyelash extensions while giving attentive care.
