Eyelash adhesives or glues have the power to perfectly hold the beautiful eyelash extension to your natural lashes. This sounds pretty simple. But, it’s not! Some days your adhesive does not react the same way it did the other time. Sometimes it helps you slay that eyelash extension but the other time, it ruins the whole eyelash extension excitement. Ever wondered the reason? Sometimes weather plays its role and other times the technique.
Though it’s a tricky topic, we have covered a few tips and tricks to help you how to take care of the eyelash extension adhesive in a proper way.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF THE EYELASH EXTENSION ADHESIVE ?
Many factors affect lash extension glue but you can avoid that if you have good knowledge about the lashes and adhesives. Through these points, find out how you can take care of your eyelash extension adhesive.
SHAKING OFF THE ADHESIVE
The adhesive works the best when all the components of the adhesive are combined well together. If you do not use adhesive for a few days, the components separate quickly. So, remember to give it a vigorous shake before using it.
Now, test! If the first few drops look dodgy that means you need to shake harder the adhesive. Also, don’t forget to give it another lighter shake before each drop.
HUMIDITY AFFECTS YOUR ADHESIVE
Ever wondered the reason behind the ruined eyelash when you have used the same adhesive to slay the look a few days ago?
Never underestimate what the weather and temperature of your room can do to your eyelash extension glue. Low humidity makes the adhesive take a longer time to dry. While, if the humidity is higher than the adhesive dries too quickly. In both situations, it will not allow your natural lash to bond correctly with the extension.
So, the question arises – how to resolve this?
There are a few tricks used by professional eyelash technicians to balance the humidity in the room or of the adhesive. You can invest in a dehumidifier or have different adhesives with different humidity levels or just simply, pick up more glue so, by the time you bond your natural lash to extension, it doesn’t dry out fast.
KEEP IT COOL AND DRY
To keep it in the best condition, the most favorable trick is to keep it cool and dry and protect it from temperature fluctuations and humidity. Keep it upright in a vacuumed sealed box or in your pouch along with a silica gel bag.
These were the do’s but there are also some don’ts that you need to follow :
- Don’t leave it next to a heater or window.
- Don’t keep it in the fridge, it’s a big no-no.
- Don’t use old and discarded adhesives.
- Don’t stock many adhesives of the same type as that will only lead to monetary loss.
The best way to make the most of your adhesive is to study it. Research well and know about the adhesive and temperatures. Shake it, adapt, store it right, and experiment with different adhesives to find the best one that works for you.
