Book your fills within the appropriate time frame (2-3 weeks)
Extensions fall off along with your natural lashes during your eyelash shed and growth cycle. You lose 1-4 natural lashes a day. That is, on average, 21 lashes a week. Refills are recommended every 2-3 weeks since you lose about 42-63 lashes by that time period. During the refill process, the technician will simply place new extensions on the natural lashes as the old ones fall off. The grown-out extensions will also be replaced with new ones. Refills are a great time to change up the style, length, or volume of your lash look as well. Factors that can influence how often you need a fill include: aftercare, eye makeup use, body chemistry, etc.
