There’s a myth that if you’ve had lash extensions for a while, you should take a break every now and then and let your natural lashes have a chance to grow back healthy and strong. But this is just a myth! In most cases, there is absolutely no need to take a break from lash extensions if they’re being applied properly. This is one of my lovely clients who has had lashes for almost 2 years now. You can see the natural lashes are still looking very strong and very healthy.
This client comes in every three weeks for a fill. As I conduct the fill I place bolder, heavier lashes onto the thicker natural lashes, and lighter lashes onto thinner natural lashes. Sometimes, a fill will be made up more of lighter lashes as her natural lashes are looking a bit thin. My clients trust me and know that I am going to do what is best for their lash health. Sometimes that means a fill with lighter lashes, and sometimes it’s a more dramatic fill as I can use thicker lashes. This rotation, and ensuring I never use thick extensions on weak natural lashes, means that there is rarely any need to take a break from lash extensions!
