Frequently Asked Questions About Eyelash Extensions

What is a Relash?

A relash – also known as a fill – is maintenance for your eyelash extensions. During a normal extension application, an extension is applied to all of your adult eyelashes; when your baby lashes grow in, they need to have extensions applied to them too. A normal fill will take 1 to 1.5 hours, and replaces the eyelashes lost during your lash cycle. Every person’s eyelash growth cycle is different, but Friendly Lashes is glad to help you identify when you’re due for your next fill!

How Do I Care for my Eyelash Extensions?

Your eyelash extensions need some extra care and attention to ensure they keep looking good between fills. Some of this maintenance can include:

  • Not using oil-based cleansers and / or makeup removers, as they can cause the lash glue to fail
  • Avoiding applying mascara over extensions, as removing it can snag the extensions and cause them to fall out
  • Being careful when washing your eye area, as any movement of the lashes will increase the chance of the lash falling out or getting twisted
  • Not letting water from the shower fall directly on your face, as hard water pressure can loosen the lash
  • Not rubbing your face with a towel, or pressing your face too hard (for example, in to a pillow while sleeping)
  • Using a dry mascara wand at least once a day (in the morning, or several times during the day) as needed, to comb through your lashes and gently straighten them out – just be sure not to tug too much, as they can loosen and fall out
  • Being careful how you apply make up, avoiding oil-based skin care products around the eyes, or greasy eye pencils and concealers, as they will breakdown the eyelash glue and cause it to fail early

How Long Do Eyelash Extensions Last?

A full set of eyelash extensions, when properly cared for, last through a full growth cycle of your natural lashes, which is typically six to eight weeks in length. Getting a fill every three to four weeks can prolong the length of time your extensions last for.
