All the hair on our bodies sheds and re-grows, as each part of the body, sheds hair in its cycle of growth.

Eyelashes go through ๐“๐‡๐‘๐„๐„ distinct phases in the eyelash growth cycle:

This is the phase where your lashes are growing, and will normally grow to a full length. This process usually lasts between 4-6 weeks.

This transition phase is when the lash has stopped growing but isnโ€™t yet ready to shed. The hair follicle will start to shrink, making room for the new hair to start growing underneath. This stage lasts approx. 2-3 weeks.

Itโ€™s a resting stage in which the eyelash can stay in the follicle for up to 100 days before falling out and starting the new lash growth cycle.

Therefore, it is important to understand that itโ€™s perfectly normal for your eyelashes to shed. However, proper aftercare of your lashes is also imperative to the shelf life of eyelash extensions and maintaining healthy eyelash follicles.
