The first twenty-four hours are critical in keeping your lashes full and beautiful as long as possible.
Eyelash extension glue cures rather than dries. It takes about twenty-four hours for the bonds to be strong and flexible. If there is too much moisture, “shock-curing” happens. The bonds are less flexible. In extreme cases, the glue may even appear grey.
That’s why Londin Lash has the 24-hour No Water Rule.
Some water is common sense:
- Don’t go swimming.
- Don’t shower.
- Don’t get in a water fight.
Other water is less obvious:
- Avoid strenuous exercise. The sweat rolls down your lids and deposits moisture and oil on those lovely new extensions. The same goes for hot yoga or saunas.
- Avoid environments with high humidity. No facials. If you are planning a tropical holiday, get your lashes done a minimum of 48 hours before you go.
- Don’t watch the Titanic or read any Nicolas Sparks books. The moisture from your tears can cause shock curing.
You may notice the hygrometer in the lash style area. Your stylist is aware of not only temperature and humidity in the studio, but also the temperature and humidity outside. Your stylist has a range of eyelash extension glues to choose from each with a range of ideal temperatures and humidity levels.
But, hey, wait...
What’s with that fine mist applied at the end of my appointment? It feels fantastic. But, is it messing with my lashes?
The fine mist is produced by a nanomister. It’s little like the story of Goldilocks and the three bears... The nanomister gives not too much moisture, not too little moisture, but just the right amount. The controlled humidity starts the curing
process. We find that it results in less irritation and better hold.
