Over the many questions that got posed to me by students and salon owners, the ones about glue selection gave me the need to address this with an article. More often than not, lash technicians or people who came to purchase our K Lash glue ask me if the glue we use is a 'one size fits all' glue. Whatt? Now let me explain, glues are generally produced based on factors such as the drying up time i.e how long it takes the glue to set, the temperature and humidity level it works best in and if it is suitable for very sensitive eyes. Therefore to choose the right glue for you, logically you will need to know your speed, the room temperature that you are working at, as well as the humidity level in the room.
The second frequently asked question about glue is, will this glue make my extensions long lasting? Now now now, whoever sells you the glue will never tell you that using the glue will cause the extensions to fall! First you got to understand that lash goes through a regular growth cycle where around 80% of the lashes are in the Telogen (resting) phase, meaning they are shedding anytime. The extension that is attached to that lash will fall off together. Furthermore, whether your extensions lasts is highly dependent on the how well it is attached to the real lash. If the attachement is not on point, even the best glue in the world can't make the extensions last.
Here's all for choosing glue! Please feel free to email us for any further discussions : )
To the Love of lashing!
