Eyelash Extensions Retention

Eyelash Extension Retention.

When it comes to eyelash extension retention, there are several factors to consider. Eyelash retention can vary from person to person based on the amount of natural lashes, shedding cycles, skin and lash oiliness, and how well aftercare advice is followed.

What is the Key to Good Retention?

The proper lash application is the key to good retention. It is essential to prep natural lashes well, ensuring they are clean and free of any oils or residue. Knowing your products and how to get the most out of them is crucial for achieving long-lasting results.

Why is Proper Application Important?

Properly applied eyelash extensions will adhere well to the natural lashes, ensuring a strong bond that lasts through the natural lash shedding cycle. This means fewer touch-ups and longer-lasting results for your clients.

How to Ensure Good Retention?

By taking the time to properly prepare the natural lashes, selecting the right extensions for each client, and applying them with precision, you can ensure good retention. Educating your clients on proper aftercare and maintenance will also help them prolong the life of their extensions.

Remember, the goal is to have many happy returning clients who love their eyelash extensions. By focusing on proper application techniques and providing excellent aftercare advice, you can achieve great results and build a loyal client base.


Here are some go-to products that will help you achieve the best lash retention possible.
