DISCLAIMER: this is an experiment showing how excessive moisture to glue can cause polymerization. We in no way are telling you as a lash artist what is the right or wrong way, and definitely are not implying to never wash your lashes. We 100% believe in proper after care of your lashes. What works for one lash artist may not work for another.
For today’s #lashtips we’re going to talk about 🌟WHY WE SHOULD WAIT 24 HOURS BEFORE WE GET OUR EYELASH EXTENSIONS WET💧 °🌟
° In the video above there are three separate glue dots. The one on the left was placed 24 hours ago. The one in the middle was placed 2 hours ago. The one on the right was placed just before starting the video🖤
° After placing a drop of water on the fresh dot of glue, the glue instantly starts to become hard & begins to turn white/grey. This is called POLYMERIZATION, which basically means the glue cured too quickly💀
° After placing a drop of water on the glue dot that had been left out for two hours, the glue once again began to harden & polymerization began to occur😰
° After placing a drop of water on the glue dot that had been left out for 24 hours nothing happened✨
° After checking back an hour later, the dots of glue are completely hardened. The fresh glue dot & the glue dot that had been sitting out for 2 hours are flaky & white. The glue dot that had been sitting out for 24 hours is completely fine⚡️
° Long story short, please wait 24 hours before getting your eyelash extensions wet (this includes steam & sweat)💦 Otherwise you will experience poor retention!

#sessiontiptuesday on this rainy, dreay afternoon!
I know this one sounds kinda strange...but it can really make a huge difference. Sometimes, as mom and dad you get so focused on trying to get your kids to smile. And then the moment they actually do, you look miserable, ha! If you know my camera is on you and you're just walking with your kiddo to the next spot, try to relax and still look joyful...it can make the call between a great moment and a throw away shot. Laugh, smile, and interact with your kids while I'm shooting in a way that you're still looking like you're having a good time. :)
