When you brush them they just fall off...

While you're putting on the extensions, you'll probably grab the brush every now and then and brush the eyelashes that have already been set vigorously. Has it ever happened to you that some of your eyelashes have fallen off? Then this article will help you identify the reasons and eliminate them.


Depending on how quickly or slowly an extension or fan is pulled out of the glue drop, less or more glue will stick to it. Too much glue can cause sticking and create an unclean overall appearance. Too little glue can result in poor durability. The area where the natural eyelash and extension are connected is not completely covered with glue. The adhesion is correspondingly poor. This can happen if you pull an extension out of a drop of glue very slowly. Especially if it is a very liquid/watery adhesive. Very often, stylists wipe off excess glue and then place the extension on the natural eyelash using exactly the area that they have just removed from the glue. The amount of glue still left is enough to stick for a short time, but the brush takes most of these extensions down again. Very little glue on the extension also hardens much faster than a little more. With a very fast adhesive, the curing process can already be so advanced that there is a short adhesion but everything falls off when brushed.


Especially with the volume technique, many stylists want an adhesive with which you can set a fan and then release it immediately without it collapsing. The problem, however, is that the adhesive must still be liquid enough at the moment of placement in order to be able to optimally connect the extension to the natural eyelash. Slower stylists in particular will now have our problem again with a quick glue. Very fast adhesives also require very fast work. You should also be careful with adhesive accelerators that are applied to the extensions. Sometimes they make the glue too quickly. A natural adhesive accelerator are high temperatures and humidity. Increasing the room temperature by 10 degrees can double the glue speed. But can you work twice as fast? In order to avoid this problem, it is important to find an adhesive that suits your own working speed and the existing room conditions. In some circumstances it makes sense to have a summer and a winter glue. A slightly slower one that is sufficiently fast due to high temperatures and high humidity in summer and a quick adhesive for the cooler days in winter with dry heating air.


One of the most important points in the setting technique is that the extensions are well connected to the natural eyelash, especially at the beginning. If this is not the case, a small hook will appear at the base of the extensions. Since the eyelash glue is very strong when it comes to pulling forces but unfortunately not when it comes to peeling forces, eyelashes that have been set in this way can practically still be brushed down.


In most cases, it is a combination of gluing too quickly and using too little glue that causes the extensions to fail when brushing immediately after gluing. Check yourself. Make sure your work flow is quick. Pay attention to the amount of glue you absorb. Do not strip off glue and be careful with glue accelerators.


Thanks to its extremely mild formula, our Force Superbonder can be applied directly to the natural eyelash. This means that its accelerating effect only starts immediately when it is attached to the natural eyelash, thus preventing poor durability caused by too fast an adhesive.
