Stages of Lash Growth
1. OUR LASHES SHED DAILYWe lose anywhere from 2-5 lashes per day! We don’t notice it, but it’s happening. During different seasons, the shedding may be more or less, but it is a completely natural occurrence. Due to this shedding, refills are needed to replenish the shed lashes so the set can be beautiful and full again.
That is why refills are recommended every two - three weeks. Some people have slower growth cycles and can push to three - four weeks, but it is not recommended as run the risk of having to pay for a full set instead of a refill if you lose too many lashes.
The average person has between 75 – 220 natural lashes per eye on the upper lid. I aim to lash all of these lashes !
If each eye sheds approximately 2-5 lashes every day, the loss of extensions adds up pretty quickly the longer you wait for a refill.
For the example example below, I averaged lash loss at 3 per day:
In 1 week you will lose 21 lashes
2 weeks 42 lashes
3 weeks 63 lashes
By week 4, a full set is probably needed, unless you have a slower lash cycle, but you would have lost 84 lashes in a 90-120 Lash Extension Set.
2. SO YOUR LASHES CAN BE IN FABULOUS SHAPE CONSISTENTLY
When lashes shed, they do not shed evenly. One eye might shed more than the other or a few in a group might shed together leaving a gap! Most times it won't be terribly noticeable, especially if you stay within your natural length and style, but because the shedding can not be predicted or controlled, getting regular refills solves this problem.
3. SO YOUR LASH ARTIST CAN REMOVE ANY OUTGROWN LASHES.
You will notice that your once sleek cat-eye look isn't looking so catty around the end of 2-3 weeks and this is because in addition to your lashes shedding, some have grown out - affecting the overall shape and of the look of your set. During your refill appointment, outgrown lashes are gently removed as well and replaced with new lashes restoring your perfect feline flick!
If you choose to not get refills and prefer to do a full set once a month or whenever you feel, that is okay as well. You just need to take really good care of your lashes during that time.
I hope you found this info helpful!!

Do not wash eyes or shower and avoid crying, sweat and steam for 48 hours after lash application.
Take special care around the eye area when cleansing your face. Gently cleanse the eye area and do not scrub or rub your eyes.
Avoid any type of oil-based product around the eyes. The oils in these products will break down the adhesive and cause the extensions to fall off.
Avoid makeup removers that contain GLYCOL. This product is in most make up removers and soaps as a cleansing agent. It is also used in eyelash adhesive removers and reduces the platinum bond adhesive.
