Choosing lash adhesive can be a total disaster when we don’t know the facts about your glue. The consequences can lead to bad retention and lashes will fall out faster therefore you are risking losing your clients. Your responsibility is to know exactly how to work with your glue in order to make extensions last enough for upcoming infill.

The second important thing when choosing adhesive is the ideal room conditions you must maintain in your working space. Temperature and humidity meter is therefore an inseparable tool you must have in your working space. Without it, you won’t be able to understand if the lashes you apply will stick to natural lashes properly, or why you have difficulties in applying extensions in the first place.
The ideal humidity for our lash adhesive collection named above is 40-60% and 20-24 Celsius degrees in room temperature and you should not compromise these rules. If you notice that the glue doesn’t dry fast enough, most probably your humidity is too low – use a humidifier to raise the percentage of humidity in the air. If you notice that lashes you have applied are falling out when you are brushing them through, your glue has dried before you to place extensions on to natural lashes. This can be an indicator of too high humidity in the air. Try to lower you humidity with dehumidifier and or use slower glue, for example when you used 1 second glue, use 1-2 second glue instead. Keep in mind that temperature work in a similar way as humidity. The higher the temperature, the faster your glue dries, the lower, the dryer the air and slowing down bonding of your glue.
Did you know that wrong conditions can seriously irritate your clients eyes under application and your volume lash fans can close themselves when the glue is drying too slow?
