How you can easily adjust temperature inside room? The easiest way is to use AC, fan or heating, and to increase or decrease the humidity, use a humidifier or dehumidifier.
How to ensure maximum retention?
There are number of things to consider for maximum retention. It mainly depends on type of glue you are using. Some of the general considerations are:
- Level of humidity: each glue has certain threshold of humidity to work the best. Before buying any glue, read the instructions on the bottle to adjust humidity and temperature of the room.
- Wash natural lashes rightly: if any residue left on natural lashes after washing it can mess up placing false lashes. Therefore, it had better to wash natural lashes with SIVOTE lash shampoo/foam properly.
- Using retention boosters: It helps to open cuticles and allow the glue to bond better with a natural lash. Use them!
- Use of right viscosity: Retention is also corelated with type of natural lashes a client has. For those clients who have curly eyelashes, it is better to use glue that has a high viscosity, using a low viscosity glue will decrease the retention of the extensions.
- Keep Glue protected: while buying a lash glue, check if it is fresh. Shake it well before each drop and usage. Take out the airby pressing the bottle. Make sure you ALWAYS work with a fresh glue drop (it's preferred to change a glue drop every 10-20 minutes - or even more frequently during the hot months). Make sure to NOT add fresh glue to the previous drop of the glue, to avoid glue getting thick. Make sure you pick up a good amount of glue - a too-small bead that is not visible or a very thin layer of adhesive might not be enough to hold the extension on the natural lash for the next few weeks
- Glue drop used should be neither too large(the greater the surface, the more the adhesive will come in contact with the air), nor too small (the glue drop will dry too fast).
- Check if your attachment is correct: there should be at least a 2mm attachment with the natural lash, with no split or crisscrossed bases.
- Cap the bottle and store it in a cool and dry place
