How To Master Adhesive Control

As any lash technician will attest, the adhesive is the unsung hero behind those stunning lash extensions. In this blog, we delve into the nuances of lash adhesive control, exploring techniques to ensure seamless application and impeccable results.

The Science Behind Lash Adhesive Placement

Contrary to popular belief, the process of applying lash adhesive isn't merely a matter of dabbing a dot and sticking on the extensions. There's an intricate science behind achieving optimal adhesion and longevity. One of the key insights in mastering this art is understanding that the freshest adhesive lies at the center of the adhesive dot.

Picture this: you're delicately dipping a lash extension into the adhesive. The motion must be precise—slow and deliberate. Rushing this step risks creating unsightly beads or uneven application. The ideal approach is to dip the lash approximately 2mm into the adhesive, ensuring that it's coated evenly without excess buildup. This meticulous technique not only guarantees a secure bond but also prevents clumping, ensuring a flawless finish.

The Importance of Controlled Dipping

The dipping motion might seem like a straightforward step, but it's where many novices falter. Dip too quickly, and you risk encountering those adhesive beads. Patience is key here; a steady, controlled dip ensures that the lash extension absorbs just the right amount of adhesive for optimal bonding. It's a delicate dance between precision and finesse.


Retention for Weeks

After you get the perfect dip, make sure the connection between your lash extension and their natural lashes touch at least 2mm to create a secure hold. 

Introducing the Glue Palette: Your Secret Weapon

Now, let's talk about the glue palette—a game-changer in the world of lash extensions. This nifty tool not only facilitates easy cleanup but also promotes efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Simply dispense a small amount of adhesive onto the palette, ensuring that the freshest adhesive is always within reach. The smooth surface allows for seamless dipping and precise application, while also preventing wastage. Plus, its reusable and is an economical choice.

So, the next time you embark on a lash extension journey, remember: slow and steady wins the race. Embrace the finesse of controlled dipping, harness the power of the freshest adhesive, and let your artistry shine through. With the right techniques and tools at your disposal, you'll elevate lash extensions from a beauty treatment to a true work of art.
