Lash extensions are a gorgeous way to enhance the appearance of your natural lashes. However, these extensions require maintenance and regular refilling. There are a few telltale signs that it’s time to get yourself a lash refill. Here’s a guide on how to know when lash extensions need a refill.
The first telltale sign that your lash extensions need a refill is lash shedding. Of course, it’s natural for your lashes to shed, just like the hair on your head. However, each lash is at a different point in the growth cycle, causing shedding to happen at various times. There’s nothing innately wrong with lash shedding, so you don’t have to worry because new ones will grow back. This shedding means that it’s about time for you to get them refilled.
Drooping lashes is another sign that it may be time for you to schedule a lash refill. As your lashes grow out, the placement of the extensions will move further from the lash line. This lash growth and moving placement of the extension will cause your lashes to become heavier. The heavier your lashes become, the more they will begin to droop or hang. Drooping lashes on the upper lash line can cause poking and discomfort to the eye. So if you notice that your lashes have begun to droop, have no fear! Just schedule a refill.
Refills are necessary to extend the life of your lash extensions. They’re essentially touch-ups that keep you from having to pay for another full set. As a general rule of thumb, it’s best practice to refill your lash extensions every two to three weeks. This time frame will vary a bit depending on each individual and their specific growth cycle. However, you shouldn’t wait too long to refill as it can cause damage to your natural lashes, which you’ll want to avoid.
Now that you know how to tell when to refill your lash extensions, you can schedule an appointment to take care of your lashes. Contact a certified lash technician who knows how to do a lash refill if you have any further questions.
