There's a lot of talk in the industry lately about the dreaded
autumn lash shed
A POST FOR CLIENTS & ARTISTS
Here's the good news:
It's natural, it's normal and it's TEMPORARY.
Here's the bad news:
Clients, your lashes will fall out quicker and more frequently for the next 6-8 weeks. They will appear thinner and more sparse. This is your body's biological response to the season change. When the days grow shorter and we have less hours of sun, your body begins to shed hair. This is because (one of the reasons) HAIR is on our bodies to protect us from the sun. Sunlight, similar to a plant, promotes hair growth. Everyone's lashes were longer, fuller and thicker in the summer.
Blood will be re-directed away form the hair follicles and toward the body's main organs. This is paramount as we will become vitamin D deficient, thereby lowering our immune systems come fall.
This means you may have to book your fills sooner than usual.
It is normal for lash retention to suffer during this time. Don't be alarmed, if you're worried about damage, talk to your lash artist. Stay open minded to lighter lashes or shorter lengths - you may like it!
Artists, please be aware of what modifications to make during this time. You may have to (temporarily) incorporate lighter fans (lower dimension), thinner diameters, or shorter lengths to maintain the integrity of the natural lash. Let your clients know to expect and remind them that at each fill, you will monitor their natural lashes and can begin to create thicker lashes as the natural lashes strengthen.
