How quickly do eyelashes grow back after they have fallen out?

Something horrific happened: a couple of eyelashes fell off. Maybe you can even see a gap in your lash line and you are panicking by wondering when your lashes would grow out fully and start looking normal again.

The eyelashes protect the eye from dirt, and is sensitive to touch. In many cultures, long eyelashes are a sign of femininity. Nowadays, eyelash extensions are becoming more popular and can be done at regular salons. Some eyelash diseases include madarosis, trichiasis and blepharitis.

How long does it take to grow back?

It is perfectly normal for your eyelashes to fall out from time to time, just like the hair on other parts of your body.

Some activities such as makeup removal, the rigorous wiping of your eyes (a mechanical cause), heavy mascara, eyelash curlers, pillows and false lashes may trigger this.

How long does it take for eyelashes to grow back?
Just like the hair, eyelash growth occurs in cycles which includes a growing phase and a resting phase. Hair falls out at the end of the resting phase, hence making way for new hair to grow in the follicle.

On the average, eyelashes grow back in the space of one to six months. The rest fall out and begin all over again.
