GET TO KNOW YOUR LASHES
Ever wondered what your eyelashes are made out of? How many lashes you lose on a daily basis? Or how long it takes for your lashes to grow? You’ve come to the right place!
EYELASH FACTS YOU DIDN’T KNOW…
WHAT ARE EYELASHES MADE OUT OF?
Your lashes are made up of 97% keratin and 3% water.
Keratin is a form of protein that makes up the vast majority of our hair structure.
WHAT IS THE TYPICAL LIFESPAN OF YOUR LASHES?
Your eyelashes go through a three-phase growth cycle, which typically lasts around 90 days! They go through three stages during this growth cycle: the active growth period, transitional period and resting period.
HOW MANY LASHES DO I LOSE PER DAY?
There’s nothing more unsettling than taking off your makeup to find that some of your eyelashes have come away with it. DO NOT PANIC. This is a completely normal phase of eyelash growth. On average, you will lose around 1-5 lashes per day.
HOW LONG CAN LASHES ACTUALLY GROW?
The average lash length is around 10mm, but the longest lash on record fluttered at 6.99cm!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR EYELASHES TO GROW BACK?
For each lash lost, it takes between 4-8 weeks for a new one to grow back to its full length.
HOW MANY LASHES DO I HAVE?
Typically, you have between 150-200 lashes on your upper lid and around 100 lashes on your lower lid.
