Eyelash glues and removers – why are they so important?
Since the dawn of civilization Beauty has been wielding power over people to such a degree that it has made many of them not only its passionate admirers but also its suffering victims. In the irresistible quest for impeccably good looks they have been turning a blind eye to all precautions to prevent any possible damage.
Like all means of Beauty accomplishment, Eyelash extensions also pose important issues to consider for a safe application and usage.
In this respect, two of the essential elements of crucial importance are the eyelash extensions-glue and the eyelash extensions glue- remover. The two major aspects of their vital significance concern their safe application and their most suitable choice. Additionally, it is necessary for both clients and technicians to have full information and good knowledge about the basic characteristics of the eyelash extensions glue and the glue-remover.
Regarding application, the glue is intended to ensure a perfect, fast /for a couple of minutes/, strong and durable fixation of all types of extensions. Conversely, the remover should dissolve the glue, making extensions fall safely from the natural eyelashes. All this is possible only if the technician has chosen a high-quality product of of the proper variety. Glue types /liquid, gel or cream/ should be selected considering their short or long-time duration /5 to 10 days – 4 to 6 weeks/, their suitability to clients’ eyes and the skin-types /sensitive or prone to allergies/. The same holds true for the adhesive-removers. The expiry date, the handling and storage requirements should be followed very strictly too. Otherwise, the chemical ingredients in the glue and the gel-remover would dmage the natural eyelashes, the eyes and the surrounding skin zone. An unopened adhesive container lasts about 6 month or up to 8 months, if stored properly, and an opened one – 1 month. The storage place for the adhesive should be a fridge or a cool dry place without any direct sunlight, while for the glue-remover – it should be additionally well-ventilated and heat and flames-free. Air-humidity could affect the glue by hardening it, which means that the air humidity in the different places across the world is worth considering too.
Not less challenging and significant for the adhesive and the remover is the careful and damage-free application of the eyelash extensions on natural lashes. It includes the sound judgment what amount is both necessary for the strong fixation or the safe removal and how to put in to prevent the contact with the eyes and the skin around them. The natural lashes protection is not to be neglected either. Moreover, in the case of the glue-remover, still another very significant requirement is the assessment of the exact time it needs to dissolve the adhesive – around 3 to 5 minutes.
Overall, keeping in mind the great importance of the glue and the glue-remover, it is advisable to avoid doing either of them on your own. The best decision will be to trust a highly-qualified specialist and a studio of excellent reputation.
