Every lash artist can understand this struggle.
Or maybe it's something else…
That is why in this blog post, we've compiled a list of top five lash retention issues..
And we’ve got some tips on how to rectify them.
Not Knowing How Your Glue Works
In relation to that, it is also important that you understand your adhesive because a lot of people don't, and it is an issue.
Now, here's a lash retention hot tip for you...
The best practice to ensure the lash glue is fresh is to change it every 3weeks.
Base Not Properly Attached (Attachment Issue)
They didn't realise they were lifting until they zoomed in using a camera.
You must have that attachment. So zoom those lashes and see if they are attached firmly at the base 2-3 mm.
As a result, you will get a weak polymerisation, and it's going to be quite brittle.
The goal is that if you magnetise it, you get the right amount of glue.
Natural Lashes Are Not Clean Before Application
Your clients will be able to see their beautiful lashes for more extended periods if you ensure their lashes are clean and not covered with makeup or debris before application.
Clients Not Following Aftercare Instructions
Explain it well to them that if they don't protect their lashes, they risk the extensions falling off prematurely.
If clients religiously follow these instructions, they can expect their extensions to last two to three weeks.
That said, here's the lash aftercare guide you can send directly to them:
- Make sure to avoid rubbing your eyes vigorously.
- Use a mild lash cleanser and warm water to cleanse them gently every morning and evening
- Gently pat lashes dry. Do not rub, pick or pull them.
Clients Not The Right Fit For Eyelash Extensions
Before your clients even get to a point where they will tell you how to make eyelash extensions last longer, you should first check if they are the right candidate.
Yes, believe it or not, Lash Extensions is not for everyone.

On the other hand, if your clients have long and thick lashes, they're likely a good candidate for eyelash extensions.
Plus, you can help ensure that your clients receive the best possible outcome from their eyelash extension treatment by considering these factors beforehand or explaining the realistic outcome they can expect to keep their lashes healthy.
