The first hours are decisive
The hours which follow the installation or the filling of eyelashes are the most decisive. In fact, during this time, the glue will polymerize, that is to say, carry out its transformation process from its liquid state to its solid resin state. You must therefore pay particular attention to your extensions. Four hours after installation, the eyelash adhesive glue will have polymerized and reached 90% of its final stability level. This is why you absolutely must not wet your eyes for the first 4 hours after applying for eyelash extensions.
The eyelash adhesive glue is completely stable between 12 and 24 hours. It is also necessary to avoid applying makeup on the eyes and steam, which will alter the transformation of the glue. Once the deadline has passed, you can go to the pool, the beach, in the shower without any problem because the eyelash extensions are waterproof.
