We all agree that it feels good to provide the longest lash retention possible for our clients. Lately, when talking shop with other artists, the conversation quickly turns to choice of glue. Lucky to be a glad girl, I’m able to explore different adhesives within a brand that I trust. For years I only used sensitive adhesive for all my clients. I simply could not get on board with adhesives that were causing clients to experience fume sensations. That was until the tools arrived to accommodate more intense adhesives.

My stance now is to educate clients on glue options, and let them decide if they would like fume or fume free, within professional reason of course. If you choose to have this conversation, clients will feel comforted to know you are mindful of the materials being used around their eyes. Here are some tips for keeping all your clients comfortable, even the sensitive ones who opt for lash maximum lash retention.

Reliable Aftercare Tips

Washing lashes with an eyelash shampoo such as Wash and Wink reduces the risk of sensitivity, and also keeps the lashes oil free, which gives the adhesive longer structural integrity. After cleansing:
  • Brush lashes with a spoolie. A technique for this is to come from above the lashes holding the spoolie long ways. Turn it in a circular motion upward for best fluffing. The lashes will roll around the spoolie and separate quite easily.
  • Then grab a fan, giving them a cool breeze until the lashes dry and fluff apart. Do this anytime your lashes get wet. This is a client and personal favorite. :)
Fan Lightweight, blade-less and rechargeable, the Glad Lash fan is your friend for drying extensions quickly.

Nebulizer - How To...

A nebulizer is your best friend for strong fumes! Let the nebulizer float a sealing mist all over the lashes with two quick pass throughs. Then fan until dry. The vapor actually seals glue enough so that when your client opens their eyes, irritation is greatly reduced, if not absent! Also, don't have them open their eyes until they are sitting upright. ;) Make the changes above, and you may even notice up to an added week, or more, of extension retention. Let me know your thoughts about glue fumes in the comments below.

I do have a client whos eyes swell after every single service and she has tried every glue and every brand possible and no luck . I ended up using and loving Flash Your Style Maximun 2 second drying glue and I love it and it retains well. Is there something like that that glad has I could get a sample of?
