*SIGHS* Yes I said it! Hair Bonding Glue On Eyelashes??? Where They Do That At!??
I’ve been getting a lot of talk about using bonding glue as a substitute for lash glue if you want your lashes to last longer. Well, I’m here to shed some light on why that is the worst idea EVER! I’m going to share some FACTUAL information. I’m sure this subject may be controversial because many do use it.
First, what is Bonding Glue for those that may not know and never heard of it? Bonding Glue is an adhesive glue that is particularly made to adhere hair to your head of hair.
Weave Glue Ingredients: Latex, Water, and Ammonium Hydroxide Avoid contact with eyes, chemical, sensitive allergic skin and reach of children, Flammable, keep away from Fire or Flame. Hair Bonding Glue: Do Not Use If Scalp Is Irritate Or Injured.
Eyelash adhesive and weave glue as we can see do have similar ingredients and that is the latex and natural rubber which helps to camouflage the false hair within the natural hair. And it is true that many that use bonding hair glue to apply false eyelashes do plan to keep in the false lashes for a long period of time. However, when individuals use bonding hair glue to bond false lashes to their natural lashes, they do just that: they place a very strong bond between the natural lashes. So much so that there is a large amount of hair loss. The weave glue is way too strong for your natural lashes and when it comes time to remove the falsies, many of your natural lashes come right out with the falsies. There are many who have to wear false lashes now because of the frequent use of bonding hair glue. If not already they will eventually fall out. Do you want that to happen to you???? I know you don’t!
You may think all glues are created equal, but this is not the case obviously because in that case, super Glue would be the same also but it’s worse than Bonding Hair Glue. You may ask “But doesn’t the weave glue have latex like so do many eyelash adhesives? So it’s all good, right?” Yes, that’s true HOWEVER bonding hair glue specifically states to avoid contact with the eye area. And the bond of hair bonding glue is not the same as lash glue. It was not formulated for this purpose. It’s like saying Alcohol is alcohol, right? Contact the Poison Control Center and they would say otherwise.
Eyelash adhesives are gentle and safe for the eye area because they were formulated for that purpose. We all know that the eye area is one of the most sensitive parts of the human body. It is prone to redness, swelling, watering, stinging and other allergic reactions. So why would you put something on your eye that would cause irritation or maybe worse... Cause you to go blind? I would suggest either sticking to eyelash adhesives or no adhesives at all which means no lashes. I also know some that are allergic to latex. Did you know there are latex free eyelash adhesives available for those who are allergic to latex? If the professional makeup artist uses anything other than eyelash adhesive, RUUNNNNNNNNNN and run quickly! Bottom line: eyelash adhesive is for false eyelashes; weave glue is for weave. Keep it that way.
I followed a Twitter conversation between celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine and a few of his followers who swore by using hair bonding glue over eyelash adhesive to apply lashes. Sam Fine stood firm on using eyelash adhesives. His favorite being DUO eyelash adhesive.
I’m going to suggest some eyelash adhesives and latex free eyelash adhesives. I will put the latex eyelash adhesives in a gallery with latex-free adhesives and the descriptions will be with the photos. These are some of my favorites and are approved to be used on the eyes.
