One of my favorite things about NovaLash Platinum Bond adhesives is that it allows the lash stylist to be in charge. All they have to do is find your perfect, consistent setting of temperature and humidity and they will be unstoppable. The higher the humidity level the faster the adhesive will dry. The lower the humidity level the slower it will dry and the more liquefied it will look in appearance. The optimal humidity level for the Platinum Bond is 50%, however. according to the environment you work in and the climate level outside the level may need to be adjusted. This is also a topic clients should be educated about.
Let me explain how I came across this topic. I worked in a studio where I would get drafts and constant temperature changes. I thought having a humidifier would help… and it did. As did the miniMR to use for speeding up the adhesive dry time. But this up and down of temperatures was causing my adhesive to adjust to the different temperature, without me noticing these 1-15 degree changes. Causing the dry time to adjust slightly to the new room setting each time. This was starting to affect my clients retention because the adhesive needs to be fully cured to ensure there are no irritation from fumes and no chance for pesky stickies. I was beyond frustrated.
Then I got my hands on the AURA. Boy, did things change real quickly for me. It told me humidity level and current temperature and the high and low for the past 24 hours. So how did this magical tool help? Because I could leave it on 24/7 and then track the levels until I found my perfect setting for my technique of lashing. This helped me stay on schedule with clients and be able to book them correctly! This also was a game changer for my clients retention as well. We all were noticing them getting to that 4 week infill goal.
With that being said, what can a client look for to ensure their lash stylist cares about the perfect setting for them?
- Making sure the service room is consistently feels the same.
- Look for the AURA in the lash stylists room.
- Keep an eye out for heaters, humidifiers and de humidifiers that may be helping maintain the room at certain setting.
- Ask about it! Especially with a NovaLash certified lash stylist, since they can match the settings to the perfect settings for them.
Humidity & Adhesive are a perfect couple in the right setting. They can really give the client amazing retention and you a faster appointment!
