When the temperature climbs and the heat and humidity wreak havoc on our skin, hair and nails, it also affects our brows and lashes. Where I live you can literally fry an egg on the sidewalk. It has been over 110 degrees F here and other places around the globe. How do we handle client retention? Can you imagine getting into your hot car after its been sitting in the heat for hours? It takes some time for the AC to kick in.

Hot, Hot, Hot

Temps inside your vehicle can climb to over 140 degrees F. It’s basically like getting into an oven. We all know that extreme heat can make the lashes go straight. There are a few things your client can do to help maintain her lashes or brows during this very warm time of year. Wearing the lashes a bit shorter can help the look of the lashes if they start to lose their curl. Using a coating sealer can also help with the bonding on the lashes.

The Thing About Glue...

Your hair including lashes will expand and contract with temperature changes. The glue however does not. Glue is an inert substance, and with continuous swelling and contracting by the hair, it can create air pockets where the lashes no longer have a good bond. It’s not your fault. Just make sure your glue is very fresh. If your glue gets gummy or thick, it’s either too hot or the air is too dry or humid. Just try and be patient, the temps will come down and we will all let out a sigh of relief. Send your client home with after care products for that extra help along the way.

Hi Seebol,

Working with the sensitive glue can be a little challenging. The sensitive glue is a slower dry time. So our suggestion is to do one or two lashes on each eye spaced a little bit apart. Rotating between eyes gives the glue more time to dry. A hand held fan helps in this process too. Remember to go through your lashes frequently with your tweezer tips to gently separate any stickies. We hope my tips help.
