What causes good lash retention?

Environment: As an eyelash artist, it's up to you to ensure that the humidity and temperature in the eyelash area are optimal for glue and other products. If it's too hot, cold, or dry, you'll have problems with the application that could also cause eyelash retention problems. Many eyelash artists know that moisture plays a role in the performance of the adhesive for eyelash extensions. Too high humidity (or heat) can cause shedding depending on the adhesive you are using.

What is poor retention or what does that mean when we say it? Poor retention relative to eyelash extensions means that eyelash extensions don't hold up as well as they should. Eyelash extensions are removed before natural lashes come off. This means that you are doing something, perhaps not intentionally, that affects the strength of the adhesive and causes the extension to peel off. It's one of the main reasons we spent almost a year creating our advanced online eyelash retention course on eyelash retention.

Now think, how many customers do you see in 2 weeks? Even with just 4 per day for 10 days, that's 40 customers. All you need is one of them (2.5%) to not return and now you're losing money. And if your client's eyelashes don't last as long as they should, it's very likely that you'll lose more than 2.5% of your customers. There is no single adhesive for everyone, some are suitable for environments with high humidity (more than 70%), while others adapt to low humidity environments (35%).

Most work best in the range of 22 to 25 degrees Celsius. For example, True Love Bond by Lash Affair works best at a humidity of 40 to 60%, while The One Bond works best at a humidity of 35 to 45% and Love Potion works best at a humidity of 40 to 70%. This just means that you may need to take extra steps to care for your extensions or simply know that these activities could affect the lifespan of your eyelash extensions. It's important to have realistic expectations about the eyelash extension process before you commit to buying this service for yourself.

While you may need to do a retouch about 3 weeks after applying your extensions, not all eyelash extensions fall out evenly. If your Lash Stylist schedule doesn't allow you to add additional time, you'll need to schedule another appointment in the future. There can be no mascara, eyeliner, moisturizer, or grease-based products on the eyelashes before application. When it comes to priming, it is essential to clean your eyelashes properly, not just moisten them, as many believe.

INSULATE PROPERLY It is best to practice insulation with both hands, which means that you have already chosen and isolated a natural eyelash before placing an extension on the adhesive and over a natural eyelash. When your eyelashes stop looking and feeling good, you'll need to go back to your eyelash artist for a retouch. If a customer uses one of these products, it can take up to 90 days for the eyelash cycle to return to normal and the steroid disappears from their system. Not cleaning your lashes daily will weaken the joint and cause your lashes to slip prematurely.
