These symptoms don’t usually last longer than 48 hours. Eye infection, known as Blepharitis, this happens due to poor eye hygiene, when dead skin is not being regularly washed. You’ll experience a red tender bump on eyelid, burning, tearing, swollen and/or crusting on the eye’s waterline.

No, but it is recommend to remove your lashes every 6 months and clean the lash line due to the possible development of blepharitis, cleaning and reapplied extension can be done same day.

Why my lashes don't last?

It's hard to say why one persons lashes last longer and the other persons lashes doesn't last long, it depends on daily routine and activity. A person who suffer from oily skin or a person who has dry skin that is using oily products to help with the dryness may lose their lashes sooner, wetting your lashes within 24 hours after having them applied, too little moisture will not cure the glue and too much moisture will over cure causing the glue to go in shock resulting in brittle bonds and can also cause the glue to turn white (happens often with watery eyes during the application as well). Trichotillomania Tangle is a hair pulling/tangling condition where a person has the urge to pull out their own hair. Thyroid Conditions can make your hair brittle, thin, and dry and cause hair to fall out earlier than usual. Alopecia Areata is a skin disease that results in hair loss, your immune system attacks hair follicles causing them to fall out into round bald spots.

HAIR STRUCTURE & SHEDDING CYCLE: 

The upper eyelid has more and longer lashes than the lower lid. A person has between 70-160 lashes on each upper lid, while there are only 60-80 lashes on the lower lid. The upper lashes are generally between 7-12mm in length and their average lifespan is anywhere from 45-90 days. People lose between
2-5 lashes per day during each natural cycle.


Each natural lash goes through 3 stage of growth:
Anagen - natural lashes are growing
Catagen - natural lashes stop growing
Telogen - is the resting stage; older lashes will be pushed out by new lashes.
