How often should I get touch-ups?
A natural eyelash falls off every 45 – 90 days, on average, due to the natural growth cycle and is replaced with the growth of new lashes. At any given moment, each of your natural lashes is at a different stage of its growth cycle. A touch up is needed to replenish the natural lashes that have completed their life cycle.
Green Leaves Lash Artist recommend getting a touch up every 2-3 weeks to keep your lashes full and beautiful!
Do eyelash extensions harm natural lashes?
When applied properly, lash extensions will not harm your natural lashes. Proper technique allows natural lashes to grow and thrive with extensions applied.
