In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’re sharing how lash extensions can empower you and when you can get them.

If you or someone you love is experiencing challenges with breast cancer that’s affecting their lash line or ability to get lash extensions, we hope this post provides insight, knowledge and assurance for life with lashes again!

Breast Cancer And Your Natural Lashes

While having and treating breast cancer, your hair and lashes can be affected as well. Why does this happen? As your body adjusts to its current state, as you undergo treatments or take medications, your hair and lashes are adjusting just like the rest of your body.

Your Lash Life: During and After Breast Cancer

How can a health condition such as breast cancer affect your natural lashes? You might notice a change in the texture, density, strength, color and even your usual lash growth cycle.

Whether you notice a small or great difference in your lash line, your eyelashes are trying to get used to the current circumstances your body is experiencing. This is often the case if you’re undergoing chemotherapy and have experienced hair and lash loss.

If this happens, unfortunately, you’ll need to temporarily press pause on your regular lash extension appointments. That’s because our expert stylists must be able to safely attach extensions to healthy natural lash hairs. But don’t worry…

Resuming Life with Lash Extensions

If you do have to temporarily suspend your favorite lash service, it doesn’t mean your love affair with eyelash extensions is over!

Once you’re well on the road to recovery, you’ll want to give yourself 6 months to let your natural lashes regain their health, vitality and strength.

When that happy day comes and you notice your lash line is back to normal, you can schedule a complimentary consultation at a Lash Lounge near you and allow one of our expert stylists to assess your lash line and discuss your customizable options for lash extensions!
