The Importance of Misting
The adhesives used by Lash professionals is commonly mistaken for glue. What is actually used is Cyanoacrylate adhesive, which are technically considered Acrylic Resins. Acrylic Resins don’t dry, they cure in the presence of Hydrogen. Hydrogen is in water. When introducing a micro-mist of hydrogen to the adhesive, we are able to activate the curing process immediately after the extensions are applied.
With this curing process clients can get their lashes wet as soon as 8-12 hours after the extensions are applied. Too much water will also breakdown the bond of the adhesive. Thats why a Lash mister provides sufficient moisture but not in excessive amounts.
Curing is beneficial for several reasons:
Clients no longer need to wait 24-48 hours to get their lashes wet.
Clients will experience less irritation from the adhesive. Adhesives used for eyelash extensions thrive on moisture. So, they tend to pull moisture from the eyes during the treatment, which causes dry red eyes. Using the mister replaces that moisture which then minimizes redness and cures the adhesive at the same time.
How to cure lash adhesives:
Hold the Lash mister 8-10 inches away from lashes and mist for about 10 seconds on each eye. Mist while clients eyes are closed to get the top of the lashes, then have your client open her eyes and mist bottom of lashes.
