HOW TO GROW BACK YOUR NATURAL EYELASHES AFTER EXTENSIONS

HOW TO GROW BACK YOUR NATURAL EYELASHES AFTER EXTENSIONS

So it’s no surprise that just like thousands of other girls, I’ve always really wanted longer and thicker eyelashes. Mine were pretty good before, but I still wanted MORE (haha). So, I decided to get eyelash extensions. I did my research and found the best girl to do them for me.

Fast forward to three years later, and I still had them! (Insert screaming emoji here, haha). I was extremely happy with them, because even when I was not wearing makeup on my face, having the lashes still made me look presentable.

Boy, was I was wrong!

To my horrified surprise, the majority of my natural eyelashes were gone! Yes, gone! The ones that I did have left were super short–my eyelashes did not look at all like they used to before I added the extensions.

Before we jump in and talk about ways to grow your eyelashes back, it’s important to understand why they fall out in the first place and the stages of the eyelash growth cycle. Eyelashes can fall out for multiple reasons aside from extensions, such as harsh rubbing to remove waterproof mascara, using a product that irritates your eye area, or even stress. However, in most cases your eyelashes will grow back, and they go through several stages:

Your lashes are constantly going through these 3 phases, and it’s very normal to lose a few lashes day to day, even if you don’t notice!
