Preparations For Eyelash Extensions
If you haven’t made eyelash extensions part of your routine, you’re missing out. Eyelash extensions are the best service. They have an incredible wow factor. Add time-saving lash extensions and you wake up beautiful—the list goes on.
However, there is one downside to be aware of: some clients may experience allergic reactions. But this is usually not an actual allergic reaction to grafted eyelashes. In most cases, the client is allergic to the adhesive, not the eyelash extender itself.
We wanted to learn about some of the ways we can do everything we can to avoid allergic reactions. But first let’s talk about the biggest signs of an allergic reaction. In most cases, swelling occurs in either one or both eyes. It quickly becomes apparent that there is some kind of eyelash irritation, so be sure to use the best eyelash extension gel for allergies.
Let’s start with the Lash Adhesive ingredients:
Not all adhesives are created equal. We have found that many people have allergic reactions to latex. Since this is the case, we recommend finding a latex-free adhesive. There are many cyanoacrylate based adhesives on the market today. Most people can tolerate cyanoacrylates.
Fewer ingredients are usually best. Try to find a binder that doesn’t have a long list of ingredients. Using a clear adhesive can help reduce allergic reactions to eyelash glue. Some customers may be sensitive to the black pigment in the adhesive.
One last tip: your eyelash glue cures with water. You can introduce this water in small amounts using a nanospray. Curing the adhesive helps stop the fumes from the adhesive from becoming active. Adding a nanospray at the end of your appointment can greatly reduce the chance of an allergic reaction to eyelash glue.
Many people have skin sensitivities, but that doesn’t necessarily stop them from enjoying the full benefits of eyelash extensions. Once you know that using the right eyelash glue can prevent allergic reactions to eyelash extensions, all you have to do is find a high-quality professional product you trust.
