I occasionally get asked if it is necessary to periodically take a break from lash extensions. The answer is: No, unless you want to!
Because we are constantly shedding and growing new lashes, the lash supply is constantly renewing itself. I’ve had clients who have maintained their lashes since I’ve started doing them (4+ years), and have had no negative effects. As long as the appropriate extensions are used and that they are maintained correctly, you can have beautiful lash extensions indefinitely!
I have heard people make a correlation between lash extensions and acrylic fingernail nail extensions numerous times, and the only similarity is that we call the monthly maintenance “fill-ins” . While acrylic nails pretty much destroy your natural nails and nail beds, lash extensions do not destroy your natural lashes or future lashes. Again, if applied & maintained properly, your natural lash follicles continue to shed & produce normally, indefinitely!
