Are You Having Adhesive Issues?

Are you wanting to dive in and get to know adhesive a bit better? Here are some tips and tricks that can make your experience with our adhesive better. This is regarding no specific adhesive but more of a general guideline to all adhesives.

-- First, you want to give your bottle of adhesive a really good shake. Begin by taking the cap off and using a small sponge to cover the tip before shaking. Then shake, shake, shake. Shake it like you mean it!

-- Next, make sure you get a new glue dot every 20-30 minutes so that you always have a fresh dot. The glue cures in the presence of hydrogen which is in the air, and you do not want your glue curing or drying before you use it. If your glue is curing before 20 minutes you may need to lower your humidity if possible. That just means there is a lot of moisture in the room that the glue is curing faster. The adhesive can also dry quicker if you have any fans, AC, heaters, or windows open. 

-- If it is not possible to adjust the humidity then you may need to change your dot sooner or switch to a slower drying glue. Also, you will want to replace your glue bottle about every 6 weeks. This will also help with your retention and keep the glue fresh.

--Make sure that your client comes in with no mascara on and no other make up around her eyelid. Make up and make up residue will result in prematurely shedding lashes. Even if you wash that make up off when the client gets there retention will still not be great. 

-- Lastly, take proper steps for preparing for the initial set. Make sure the lashes are very clean and use a primer to help the glue adhere better to the natural lash. Make sure your Primer does not have oils in it, oils can dry out the natural lash. The glue will adhere better if there is moisture present. 

And there you have it! We hope this helps with some of your glue troubles. If you are in need of replenishing your adhesive supply, you can order here: Adhesive
