In today's post we're going to talk about why brush offs happen and share our top tips on how to avoid lash extension brush offs.
Why do I get lash extension brush offs?
In short, 99.99% of the time, brush offs are caused from the adhesive drying too quickly.
How do I avoid lash extension brush offs?
Brush offs can be avoided, here are a few things to take into consideration when lashing...
Make sure to select an adhesive that suits your speed and technique. After a break from lashing you may find your speed has changed. Working with an adhesive that's too quick for you will result in more brush offs, as the adhesive will cure before it's placed on the lash. This will result in the extension not adhering to the natural lash. We have a range of adhesives with different curing times, if you would like to browse the range you can find it here. You may want to start with a slower curing adhesive, whilst you build your speed back up. You can always switch back to a faster curing adhesive later on!
Make sure you are isolating correctly and leaving enough time for the extension to adhere to the natural lash. Wait a couple of seconds, before moving on to another section, and brush through the lashes throughout the set. All these little tips will ensure the lash extensions adhere to the natural lashes correctly, and will help prevent brush offs at the end of the set.
