Eyelash Growth Cycles

Do you want to learn about biology Are you ready for a lesson on biology, ladies? Here’s the complete rundown of cycle of growth in your eyelashes. In any moment the eyelashes of your are in three different phases which are Anagen, Catagen, or Telogen. Let’s glance at each and how they impact developing those gorgeous natural eyelashes that we’ve all hoped for.

Anagen Phase

It is the Anagen phase, also referred to as the active growth phase is when your eyelashes start to grow. The natural lashes in your eye are with an abundance of blood to support their development during this phase of the growth cycle for your eyelashes. A small percentage of your eyelashes will be during this stage at a period, which is the reason the lashes are still sporting their gorgeous appearance. Anagen is a phase that Anagen period can last between 4 and 10 weeks, giving your lashes time to develop to their maximum potential.

Catagen Phase

In the Catagen phase of the cycle of growth the eyelashes are at their maximum length. They stop developing by shrinking the follicle, and separating from the source of energy. They will remain in this phase of transition approximately for a couple of weeks prior to transitioning to the next phase of the growth cycle for eyelashes.

However, if a lash loses its luster or disappears during the catagen phase of the cycle, it cannot regenerate until the process ends, at which point the Anagen phase starts again. This is why eyelash artists need to be extremely cautious with eyelashes, as we can’t tell the moment they’re going through this stage!

Telogen Phase

The final stage of your eyelash development cycle is when your lashes spend their last few days until the Anagen phase starts again. The Telogen phase lasts around four to eight weeks. In this phase of shedding, the newly developed natural eyelashes slowly drop out of your hair follicles to allow room for the new eyelashes. If you find your eyelashes fall out by themselves, do not worry! This is just the Telogen stage working its magic.
