Choosing the glue that best suits your needs can be a complicated task. In this article we present everything you should consider so that you can choose the right glues for you and your customers. They are almost always the same ingredients present in eyelash extension glues, but small variations in formulas and ingredients cause very different characteristics, such as durability, drying time, sensitivity, viscosity and color. Always try to know the characteristics of a glue before buying it or you could simply be wasting money.

Glue features:

  • Durability: how long the glue maintains adhesion after it dries 

  • Speed: how many seconds between soaking and laying before the glue dries

  • Sensitivity: how strong/irritating the vapors are

  • Viscosity:whether the glue is more liquid or thicker

Durability, drying time and sensitivity, what's the connection?

Cyanoacrylates are responsible for the adhesion ability, but they inevitably give off some fumes that can be irritating to eyes, mucous membranes, and skin. A stronger, longer-lasting glue will also likely have more fumes and be more likely to cause irritability. If the glue is made to have reduced vapors, the adhesion strength and consequently the durability is also reduced. Realizing and getting your customers to understand this can help keep expectations realistic about the durability of the extension.

Fewer vapors = Less irritation and less durability

Lots of vapors= More likely to irritate and last longer

We have faster glues (drying time 0.5 seconds) and also slower glues (up to 6 seconds), but does the drying time also relate to the level of vapors?
Actually yes. The faster the glue dries, the greater the vapors emitted and consequently the irritation. If you have an extremely allergic client, it is advisable to use a cola hipoalergénicaso that it doesn't cause irritation, despite the fact that your work's durability is predictably shorter.

eyelash extension glues for beginners

During the learning process and during the first periods of practice it is convenient to use a slower glue and with less vapor emission, so you will have more time to handle and work more safely. You may lose a little in the retention and durability of your work but in addition to giving you more time to handle, starter glues are lower in vapors, making them more likely to be tolerated by more sensitive customers.

Fastest eyelash extension glue

If you already have enough practice and your experience allows you to work with greater speed, it is normal that you prefer a quick drying glue and that allows you to speed up the entire eyelash extension process. The fastest glues dry between 0.5 to 1 second and last up to 8 weeks, however these glues must be used taking into account the sensitivity of the customer so that it does not cause irritation to more sensitive customers.

Now that you know all the elements you should consider when choosing your eyelash extension glue, find the best option for you at a truly fair price! 😊 If you have any questions, send us a message, we will be happy to clarify them!
