Eyelash extensions are a great way to enhance the natural look of your eye without having to wake up early and spend hours in front of the mirror applying layer after layer of mascara. Not everyone is blessed with long, thick eyelashes, but with lash extensions, you can give yourself a completely unique look.

Understanding Your Natural Growth Cycle
Before you can begin to understand why relashing appointments are necessary, you first need to understand the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes. You can probably recall a time in your life where you picked an eyelash off of your face and used it to make a wish. At the time, you may not have questioned why your eyelash had fallen out. The reason you lose your eyelashes is the same reason you find hair in your brush or in the drain after you shower. Eyelashes and hair go through a natural growth cycle. They start out very small, mature, and eventually fall out only to be replaced by another hair.
Growing and losing eyelashes is completely normal, but you may be unsure as to how this affects your lash extensions. When you receive eyelash extensions, the lash artist will apply the extension directly to your natural eyelash. Unlike strip lashes which sit directly on your eyelid, lash extensions are adhered to your natural lash, therefore, they will fall out when your natural lash has completed its growth cycle. As a result, you will need to schedule a relashing appointment every three to four weeks if you want to ensure that your lash extensions look their very best.
How to Get the Most Out of Your Lash Extensions
You may not like the idea of scheduling an appointment to receive new lash extensions every three to four weeks, but you will be happy to know that if you give your lash extensions the proper care and attention, they will look beautiful for a longer period of time. In a previous post, we discussed a few mistakes you should avoid making with your eyelash extensions, so be sure to check it out for even more tips. That being said, essentially, the best way to ensure that your eyelash extensions look their best is to give them the care they need. This involves not rubbing your eyes, combing them out using a special comb if they become tangled, and not using oil-based products on your lashes. If you’re careful with your lashes, then you will be able to schedule your relashing appointment farther out.
