ADHESIVE: Curing VS Drying

Posted by Jade Penson on

What is drying?

Drying is when the outside of the lash adhesive dries quickly enough for you to continue lashing without any lashes getting stuck together. To get scientific, the chemicals in the adhesive evaporate into the air, causing the adhesive to harden. Then, you can move through lashes quickly and safely.  

What is curing?

Curing is when the adhesive dries completely all the way through to the center, by absorbing moisture from the air. Because water is also naturally found in air (in the form of humidity), the lash adhesive would eventually polymerize/cure over time. However, it would be a much slower process, taking up to 24 hours to cure.

What is a superbonder?

Superbonder adds elasticity to the adhesive; the additional flexibility ensures the bonds don't break as easily, therefore resulting in better retention. Superbonder instantly polymerises the glue, without shock curing! It locks in the fumes from the adhesive and with the fumes contained, irritation and sensitivity are significantly reduced! Additionally, because the bonds have been sealed, the lashes therefore are instantly safe to get wet.
