If you're a lash technician, you know how important it is to have a reliable lash glue. However, even the best glue can lose its effectiveness if not stored or used correctly.
Here are our top 5 tips to help you get the most out of your lash glue:
1. Don't overstock your glue
Unopened glue has a shelf life of up to 6 months, so it's best to purchase only what you can use in that time frame.
2. Store unopened glue in a cool, dry place
Keep your unopened glues in a cool and consistent temperature environment. For extra protection against humidity, consider using silica gel packs or an airtight container. It's important to note that sudden changes in temperature can cause condensation inside the bottle, which can affect the glue's quality.
3. Keep opened glue away from heat and humidity
Once opened, the glue will start to harden quickly inside the bottle, so it's crucial to protect it from direct sunlight, moisture, and heat. To keep your lash glue fresh, you can store it in an airtight container, a jar of rice, or an aluminum package with silica gel.
4. Write the date when you first opened the glue
This will help you keep track of how long your adhesive has been open. For best results, we recommend changing your glue every 3-4 weeks to ensure it stays fresh and works effectively.
5. Shake, shake and shake
Shake the bottle before each use to ensure all ingredients are mixed well. An indicator of "poor shake" is clear glue coming out of the bottle. Consider using a glue shaker for even better results.
By following these tips, you can ensure that your lash glue is always performing at its best. And if you ever have any questions or concerns, we're here to help!
