Eyelash extension glue affects the retention of eyelashes. Adhesives vary in their drying time. Slow drying eyelash glue is recommended for beginners, and quick drying eyelash glue for professionals.
How to choose eyelash extension glue?
Ideally, you want an universal eyelash extension glue that works well for all types of clients. However, there is no such adhesive that will meet the needs of every customer. Thanks to science, there are many options for each different situation. We understand that it can be difficult to choose the right eyelash extension glue with the huge number of options we offer - especially when you are new to eyelash extensions.
Below are the factors to consider when looking for a quality eyelash extension glue:
Always have glue for sensitive eyes. Your customer's health and safety is the highest priority. There are often customers with a high sensitivity to glue vapors and an allergic reaction to glue. To avoid irritation, it is recommended to use a latex-free adhesive. You must also inform the customer that formulas for sensitive eyes have a shorter retention period than usual. In addition, the drying time of such glues is slower, which means that it can be difficult to perform volume styles.
Choose the glue that suits your pace. The ideal drying speed of the glue is directly proportional to the speed of your hands. If you are new to eyelash extension, choose an adhesive that allows you to attach your eyelashes flexibly and effectively. Note that the quick drying glue will dry before you apply the lash extensions if you work more slowly. On the other hand, the lashes will stick together if the glue dries too slowly.
Consider the style of eyelashes. Popular voluminous eyelash extensions require a special adhesive formula or quick work using quick-drying adhesives. If the glue dries too slowly, the thickness and hold of the eyelash fans and voluminous lash styles can quickly become compromised.
Assess the influence of humidity and temperature. It is necessary to pay attention to the condition of your workplace, because this aspect has a direct impact on the performance of the adhesive. Cyanoacrylate is the active ingredient in all adhesives that hold the extensions in place. Moisture activates the cyanoacrylate and hardens the adhesive, so moisture directly affects the drying speed and durability of the adhesive. If the room humidity is higher than recommended, the eyelash glue will harden and dry faster than usual. If the room humidity is lower than recommended, the glue will not have enough moisture to start curing. Prolonged exposure to cyanoacrylate usually results in sticky eyelashes and an allergic reaction.
In short, the best glue is the one that best suits your client's needs and your ability to properly apply lashes at a speed that is comfortable for you. That's why we offer a wide range that can meet everyone's needs.
