Let’s address a lash salon phenomenon: Despite its great qualities, eyelash glue can be a real pain in the ass sometimes! There’s nothing more annoying than opening a lid only to find the adhesive has dried.

The challenges of eyelash glue are many, but have no fear! We are here to provide solutions and relieve your upset. Whether it’s solving common problems or providing tips for maintaining adhesive quality, we’ve got you covered.

Why is my lash glue losing its stickiness?

It’s upsetting to find your favorite false eyelash glue losing its stickiness. What’s the main problem? Air seeping into the bottle. Once opened, the glue begins to polymerize, a process that can’t be stopped but can be slowed down.

Air Exposure: Just like with lash glue, air is the primary reason for adhesive losing its stickiness.

To ensure your lash adhesive performs at its best, always burp the bottle before use. Hold the bottle upright and gently squeeze out any glue trapped at the top of the nozzle. This simple step prevents air bubbles and guarantees that each drop is fresh, enhancing retention and extending the shelf life of your lash extension glue.

Troublesome glue nozzle

To prevent the glue nozzle from getting clogged, be sure to clean it with a nozzle rag before the glue dries. A dirty nozzle will prevent the bottle from sealing properly. Keeping the nozzle clean ensures an airtight seal for better glue retention.

If you find that the applicator tip is completely clogged or stuck in the cap, don’t worry! Our adhesive rescue kits and replacement nozzles can save the day.

Do you store eyelash glue correctly?

It is crucial to keep eyelash glue away from direct sunlight, moisture and heat, as these factors can significantly affect its polymerization process. To ensure optimal storage, place glue in an airtight container or. Luckily, our adhesives come in convenient heat packs with a manufacturing date label!

Maintaining the proper temperature and humidity in your salon is critical to maintaining the quality of your glue. Low humidity and temperature will slow drying time, while higher humidity and temperature will speed up the curing process. A moisture meter is extremely helpful for monitoring and regulating these conditions in your workspace to ensure your glue is performing at its best!

Can I stock up on adhesive?

It’s tempting to stock up, especially during a sale. However, the shelf life of an unopened adhesive is up to 6 months from the manufacturing date, and only up to 2 months after opening. Stocking up might not be the best idea. Remember, the more you open the bottle, the more your glue is exposed to air – if you’re using it daily, consider replacing it every 4-6 weeks.

The best approach is to buy 2-3 bottles, judging your usage so they don’t expire. Store unopened adhesives in the fridge, but let them reach room temperature before use. Once opened, keep the glue in a cool, dry place and never return it to the fridge.

Has my lash glue expired?

As discussed above, your lash glue doesn’t have the longest shelf life – sad, we know. The BEST thing to do as soon as you open your glue is to write down the date and stick it to the bottle. We advise you to change out your adhesive every 3-4 weeks to keep it at its freshest. If your glue has changed in consistency, e.g. too watery – throw it out!

Why doesn’t my eyelash glue stick?

If your eyelash glue doesn’t stick, it could be due to improper storage or expired adhesive. Adhesives lose their stickiness when exposed to air or extreme temperatures for extended periods of time. To fix this problem, store eyelash glue in a cool, dry place and make sure the lid is sealed. If it’s still not sticky, it may be time to replace the bottle with a new one.

WHY IS MY LASH ADHESIVE NOT WORKING? Aside from all the hacks we’ve already mentioned, the key to success is to shake, shake, shake! Before each use and before dispensing each new drop, shake the adhesive bottle for 1-2 minutes. Regularly shaking the adhesive ensures that the ingredients are thoroughly mixed and distributed, which leads to improved performance.

We highly suggest using a glue shaker to save time and reduce wrist fatigue. Believe me, it will make a world of difference!

Aftercare: Remind your clients that maintaining their lash extensions involves careful attention to aftercare guidelines. Advise them to avoid touching or rubbing their lashes, especially in environments with high temperatures like saunas or steam rooms. The heat can weaken cyanoacrylate, the main ingredient in lash adhesive, leading to premature lash loss. Additionally, stress the importance of keeping their lashes clean and avoiding oil-based products around the eyes. Regular follow-up appointments are essential to keep their lashes looking full and beautiful. By following these aftercare instructions, clients can enjoy long-lasting lash extensions and reduce the risk of damage.
