Eyelash extensions are fibers that stick to natural eyelashes to create thicker, longer eyelashes. However, eyelash extensions can damage or tear natural eyelashes. If natural eyelashes are lost due to eyelash extensions, they typically grow back within a few months. The good news is that, over time, your natural eyelashes will grow back.
1 The speed at which natural eyelashes grow varies from person to person. On average, a natural eyelash grows half an inch per month and takes 90 days, plus or minus 5 days, to completely peel off. Eyelash extensions do not damage natural eyelashes when applied correctly or shorten them. When an inexperienced eyelash technician places the extension on the skin of the eyelid, it creates a clove head.
My eyelashes were very long, but almost straight and not dark, so the only reason I put on eyelash extensions was because I was tired of curling them every morning and putting on mascara. It is also a treatment that takes into account the long-term health of the eyelashes, allowing them to look without applying mascara or overusing eyelash curlers, which can weaken them over time. The eyelash artist isolates and applies the extensions one by one to the natural eyelashes, creating beautiful wavy eyelashes. I've always had relatively short eyelashes, but after wearing extensions for 3 years, the few I had are completely damaged with a pair of bald spots.
Extensions usually require glue, and any glue applied to the eyelashes allows a certain amount of chemicals to come into close contact with the very sensitive hair follicles around the eyes, and the risk of infections is high. When an extension sticks to several natural eyelashes, it can cause natural eyelashes to break, lose and thinning.

After having Diego and literally not even having time to brush my teeth, I left my eyelash extensions behind.
The extensions adhere to the natural eyelashes, so as the natural eyelashes grow, it becomes increasingly difficult for the original eyelash to support the weight of the artificial eyelash, so it is likely that they will break, if not expected.
