At Luxury Lash Beauty, we want to help you understand the natural growth and shedding cycle of your lashes, so you can care for them and keep them looking luxurious for longer.
The Lash Growth Cycle: Phases and Timing
The lash growth cycle consists of three phases: the anagen (growth) phase, the catagen (transition) phase, and the telogen (resting) phase.
- Anagen (Growth) Phase: This is the active growth phase of the lash cycle. During this time, your lashes are actively growing and can reach up to 1cm in length. This phase lasts around 30 to 45 days for most people.
- Catagen (Transition) Phase: This is a transitional phase where the lash stops growing and the follicle starts to shrink. This phase lasts around 2 to 3 weeks.
- Telogen (Resting) Phase: This is the resting phase of the lash cycle where the old lash rests and the new lash starts to grow. This phase lasts around 100 days for most people.
After the telogen phase, the lash will naturally shed, and a new lash will start growing. The entire lash growth cycle can take anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks, depending on the individual.
Understanding Lash Shedding
At Luxury Lash Beauty, we know that every lash is precious. That's why we want you to understand the importance of proper lash shedding. It's normal to lose a few lashes each day as part of the natural lash shedding process. On average, most people lose 1 to 5 lashes per day.
However, sometimes people may experience more lash shedding than usual due to various factors, such as aging, stress, or hormonal changes.
When it comes to lash extensions, it's important to understand that the extensions will shed along with your natural lashes. This means that you will need to come in for regular touch-ups at Luxury Lash Beauty to maintain the fullness and length of your lashes.
Caring for Your Natural Lashes
At Luxury Lash Beauty, we believe that self-care is an essential part of any luxurious lifestyle. Here are a few tips to keep your natural lashes looking their best:
Avoid Pulling or Rubbing Your Lashes: This can cause damage to your natural lashes and lead to premature shedding.
Cleanse Your Lashes with Our Luxury Products: Use our gentle lash cleanser or an oil-free makeup remover to clean your lashes daily. This will help to remove any dirt or debris that may be clogging your lash follicles and preventing healthy growth.
Sleep on Our Silky Pillowcases: Sleeping on our silky pillowcases can help reduce friction and damage to your lashes. Try them out for a luxurious night's sleep.
