Are you still looking for the best lash glue?

Every day we hear hundreds of lash technicians complaining about their lash glues. Especially if it's a volume lash glue. The truth is, in most of the cases of poor lash retention, there is nothing to do with the brand of the eyelash adhesive. Most of the retention problems are caused by incorrect usage/storage of lash glue. 

Today we will tell you how to store and look after your glue correctly to get the most out of it!

TIP 1 - DON’T OVERSTOCK YOUR GLUE!

We understand that it’s probably easier for most of you to do one big order from eyelash supplier once every 6 months, but this might be a problem for your glue. The shelf life of an unopened glue is up to 6 months. If you buy 4-5 bottles at the same time, the last 2 bottles that you'll open will probably be out of date.

TIP 2 - STORE YOUR UNOPENED GLUE IN COOL, DRY PLACE.

Make sure you store all unopened glues in a cool place. This could be a fridge or perhaps a wooden drawer in a basement. For extra protection against humidity, we recommend storing your glue in an adhesive thermopack or an airtight container. The temperature shouldn't be just cool, it should also be constant. Big changes in air temperature can cause condensation inside the bottle can affect the glue properties.

TIP 3 - AS SOON AS YOU'VE OPENED THE GLUE, KEEP IT IN A DRY PLACE, AWAY FROM HEAT AND HUMIDITY.

Once you have opened the glue it WILL start to polymerise inside of the bottle very quickly. So it's very important to keep your adhesive away from heat, direct sunlight and moisture. You can use a jar of rice or an aluminium package with silica gel to store your lash glue.

TIP 3 - NOTE THE DATE WHEN YOU FIRST OPENED THE GLUE.

As soon as you open your glue, make sure you write down the date of it's been opened. You can write it on the last page of your appointment book or simply write it on the lash tape and stick it to the bottle. If you want your adhesive to be fresh and work at its optimum, we advise to change it every 3-4 weeks.

TIP 4 - SHAKE IT.

Before each new drop, shake the bottle for at least 15-20 seconds to make sure all ingredients are mixed well together. An indicator of "poor shake" is clear glue coming out of the bottle.
