Humidity and Retention

I’ve been hearing a lot of lash techs struggling with retention this winter. Just because your temperature is VERY COLD, doesn’t mean you need a low humidity adhesive! On the contrary, if it is SNOWING or RAINING it will significantly increase your humidity. This will cause your adhesive to cure way faster than what you are used too. If you’re using 3-4 sec drying adhesive (with the suggested humidity range of 20-45%) in high humidity it can cure within 0.5-1 sec! This means, if you’re applying lashes at the speed you’re used to, you will be applying partially dry adhesive which will result in lashes popping off right after the application - bad retention.
