Lash adhesives are a crucial part of the lash extension application process. They are used to attach the individual lash extensions to your natural lashes, providing a secure and long-lasting bond. With so many different types of lash adhesives available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one. In this post, we'll take a closer look at lash adhesives and their differences.
Lash Extension Adhesive Drying Time:
The drying time of lash adhesives can vary from 0.5-5 seconds. Quick-drying adhesives like iLevel Lab Oil Ninja may be preferred by lash artists who want to work quickly, while slower-drying adhesives like iLevel Lab Mrs. Bond may be preferred for beginners who need more time to adjust the lash placement.
Lash Extension Adhesive Humidity Range:
Humidity is an important factor to consider when working with lash adhesive because it affects how fast the adhesive bonds to the natural lashes. Lash adhesive typically cures or sets by reacting with moisture in the air.
If the humidity is too low, the adhesive may not cure properly, which can cause the extensions to fall off prematurely, therefore we recommend using iLevel Lab Low Humidity Adhesive. On the other hand, if the humidity is too high, the adhesive may cure too quickly, resulting in a weak bond that can also cause the extensions to fall off. For higher humidity levels we recommend using adhesives with a wider humidity range, like iLevel Lab Non Shake Adhesive or Cherrylicious Lash Adhesive.
Formaldehyde-Free Lash Adhesives:
Formaldehyde-free adhesives are becoming more popular as people become more aware of the potential health risks associated with formaldehyde exposure. These adhesives provide a strong hold without the use of formaldehyde, making them a safer option for both clients and lash artists. All iLevel Lab adhesives are Latex and Formaldehyde-Free.
Lash Adhesive for color lashes:
When it comes to applying color lash extensions, clear lash adhesive can be a great option. This is because it allows the color of the extensions to be more visible, as opposed to traditional black adhesive which can make the color of the extensions appear darker or less vibrant.
When applying color lash extensions with clear lash adhesive, it is important to use high-quality color extensions, as some lower-quality extensions may not adhere properly or may lose their color over time.
We recommend iLevel Lab Clear lash adhesive for clients with sensitive eyes, as it lacks the carbon black pigment that can cause irritation in some clients. Clear lash adhesive can make it less likely to cause irritation or allergic reactions than other types of lash adhesives.
Choosing the right lash adhesive depends on a variety of factors, including clients individual needs and preferences, as well as your skill level. It's important to communicate with your clients about any allergies or sensitivities they may have, as well as the desired lash look. With the right adhesive, you can achieve beautiful and long-lasting results for your client.
