Spring Lash Shed

Spring has sprung! Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, but have you noticed your lash extensions seem to be falling out more than usual? Don't worry, this is normal. It's simply natural spring lash shedding.

Just like animals shed their winter coats for a lighter summer look, our bodies adjust to seasonal changes. Now that it is Spring, and the weather is getting (slightly) warmer, our bodies react. This includes our eyelash growth cycle, which can experience some fluctuations during spring.


Lash Shed

Here's the Science Behind Lash Shedding:

Natural Lash Cycle: Our lashes, like all hair, follow a growth-rest-shed cycle. This cycle typically lasts 60-90 days, with the shedding phase lasting around a month.

Spring Cleaning: During spring, our bodies may shift more lashes into the resting phase in response to warmer temperatures and potentially lower humidity.

Extension Effect: Since lash extensions are attached to your natural lashes, they'll shed along with them during this natural process

So, What Does Natural Lash Shedding Mean for Your Lash Extensions?

It's Normal: Spring lash shedding is perfectly natural and shouldn't cause undue stress.

Be Prepared: Knowing about seasonal shedding can help you manage expectations and avoid freaking out when you see a few more lashes in your mascara brush or on the bathroom sink.

Be Refill Ready: Because of the increased shedding, you might need lash refills a bit more frequently during spring. Communicate with your lash technician to adjust your infill schedule as needed.


Here are some tips to keep your lash extensions looking luscious throughout Spring:

Gentle Cleansing: Be extra gentle when cleansing your lashes to avoid dislodging any weak ones. Use a lash-safe cleanser – look for cleansers which are oil-free.

Avoid Touching: Try to resist the urge to rub or pick at your lashes. This can cause unnecessary stress and breakage.

Hydration is Key: Dryness can affect your lash health. Make sure you're drinking plenty of water to keep your lashes (and skin!) hydrated.


Spring is a time for renewal and fresh starts. By understanding spring lash shedding and taking proper care of your extensions, you can keep your lashes looking flirty and fabulous all season long!
