Hi there, I have only ever used glam lash glue, but have found this lasts really well. You always get lashes falling aou after a few weeks, they naturaly shed with the natural eyelash, and this is when clients should book back in for infills, and you can top the lashes up i the area's that have shed, infills should be done every 2/3 week.
If you are finding that all the lashes are coming out, maybe the lashes still had some make up or products of some kind on before application, that would act as a barrier and stop a good bond between doner lah and extention, cleansing the lashes with an oil free cleanser, and using a primer before initioal application should help with this, also aftercare is really important. If your client is using oil based moisturisers/make up removers and these are repeatedly gettin used in the eye area, this weill break down the glue, and so cause the lashes to fall out prematurely, maybe ask your clients how they are doing things afterwards, it might not be the glue??
hope this has helped x

Hi. . I should declare an interest as I'm from the Eyelash Emporium. We've found that no matter which glue you use there are four factors that influence how long the lashes will last more than the glue.
Selection of healthy mid-cycle lashes to bond to; if the donor lash falls out in 2 or 3 weeks it doesn't matter how strong the glue is.
Meticulous preparation of the lashes; the glue needs a clean surface to create a durable bond.
Aftercare; avoid any oil-based cleansers, makeup or mascara, especially in the first 24-48 hours (depending on glue) and be very careful with the lashes in this period as the glue is not fully cured.
Technique; you need to adapt your technique to the speed of the glue, or find a glue that matches the speed at which you apply the lashes. You also need to have exactly the right amount of glue on the lash to form a strong bond without clumping.
There are many good glues out there (and many bad). We took 2 years to develop our Ultra Platinum eyelash glue, working with Europe's top adhesive chemists. Of course we think our glue is the best out there as it's ISO tested to medical grade and we sell many thousands per month. We are all experienced lashers and we developed our glue to suit our real life needs but you will probably need to experiment to find a glue that suits the way you like to work. It may change as you get more experienced and there are plenty of good suggestions on this forum. Hope this helps and sorry for plugging my own glue.
Does anybody know if there is a brand from America called "Flash Lash" apparently these are thicker individual lashes that last 10 days???
It seems this is the number one quest of all serious eyelash extension technicians. I have tried many glues, and had all kinds of problems over the past three years with glues. The best one I have found so far is sold by Eyelash Addict. It is a low fume glue that holds the extensions on the individual lashes for the length of the lash life. (Up to eight weeks.) Most of my clients can easily go three weeks till their next fill, and usually have at least half of the original extensions still on. This glue has a very thin consistency, and dries within 2-3 seconds. The best part is that I have virtually eliminated recurring glue allergies amongst my clientele.
I use LASH by Francesca's glue as it gives a clean and precise finish. I have been using this glue for a couple of years and while I do check out new glues on the market, I always come back to this one.
hi , definately ensure the lashes are prep'd with a protien remover prior to application. select your pre to mid term lashes as these have the longest growth cycle left, try going down a lash thickness / lenght in case its is putting to much stress on natural lash, ensure the lash unit is bonded root to tip. i use nouvea lashes pro 5, make sure your glue is keft out of sunlight and shake well prior to use. relistically lashes should look ok for around 4 weeks , with an infill every 3 weeks, express lashes should be romved and replaced every 2-3 weeks cath
The best adhesive out there is OutLash from USA, it does not clump the lashes together so it does not attract the lashes either side of the one you are putting the extension on. Infills would be every 3/4 weeks and on the infills you can add a lash to the one that is growing out. This is very expensive but you should get 150/200 application per pot.
I have used several lash adhesives: Nova, 3-D, Shavashana, generic and Xtreme. I find the Xtreme lash glue to be the most effective. It tends to last and has little or no fumes ( which can be problematic.) I agree with the responders that suggest more emphasis on pre-application lash area preparation and post lash application home care. The lash area needs to be thoroughly clean and dry prior to application. And, written home care instructions need to be discussed and written instructions need to be provided to the client, as well. The first 24-48 hours after application is crucial. Clients must understand that they must follow the instructions in order to maintain optimum appearance and to extend the life of the lashes. With proper care, you should expect to see your clients within 2-3 weeks for replenishment. There should be 3/4 to at least 1/2 of the lashes, that you applied, still on them. Less then this, after only two weeks, indicates a lack of care.
Since I have personally worn lash extensions and I know how long they can last ( with proper care) I do not accept excuses. If you return with little or no lashes, you pay for another FULL set. By taking a no-nonsense approach with your clients, you force them to take better care of their investment.
Hi there I agree with the below but there is a really good glue that I use. Both are good I will post the links for you to check out.
I do also think that it really depends on the the person and the aftercare process, not many clients follow this exactly and it really does make a difference.
Good Luck! x
