Don’t Use Hair Extension Glue On Your Eyelids.

Every since my wedding photos were taken, I have gotten so deep into eyelashes. When I tell you it completes the look, I mean that literally. There isn’t anything that can take the place of  beauty enhanced eyes! I don’t mean your eyeballs. No, leave them alone. I don’t want you messing with those. You need to see. Right?

Ok where do I start with this exciting blog. See, I hate when I get too excited to write, because I began to fumble my thoughts. I just want to hurry and get the words on paper. Help me Father! Ok, Ok, here we go. As I get deeper into all types of eyelash extensions, I began to do research on different types of adhesives to use. one type doesn’t fit all for sure. There is white, clear and black adhesive . I’m not sure why anyone would want the glue to cure to a white finish, but it’s yours for the taking. There are so many brands. Revlon, Duo and Kiss and Bella Lash to name a few. They are formulated  specifically  to use on the eyelids.  There are some adhesives on the market for sensitive eyes.

This is great but this blog is more about using hair extension glue on your eyelids. Is it safe? I’ve read so many blogs, forums and comments on social media regarding it’s safety simply because they’ve used it for before and it didn’t have an adverse effect on them. But does it mean it’s safe because you didn’t noticeably have any effects? It’s like smoking a cigarette and saying it didn’t bother you.

My take on it  is, hair bonding glue is for hair and eyelash glue is for the eyes, for a reason.  For instance, Salon Pro 30 seconds hair bonding glue, states in the  ingredients: Do not use on hair that is damaged. Keep out of reach of children. Keep out of eyes, if contact occurs, wash thoroughly with water. Ingredients: latex, water (aqua), sodium polyacrylate, dimethicone, quaternium-15, ammonium hydroxide, fragrance (parfum), may contain CL77262422.  Do you know what CL77262422 is?  It is chlorpyrifos which is used in pesticides.  Possible side effects:  Mild poisoning can result in eye watering, increased saliva and sweating, nausea and headache. Moreover, it may lead to muscle spasms or weakness, vomiting or diarrhea and impaired vision. Symptoms of severe poisoning include seizures, unconsciousness, paralysis, and suffocation from lung failure.Why would you want that near your eyes? No adhesive is meant to put directly in your eyes, but with something used near your eyes, it could possibly get in your eyes.  Plus when removing your falsies one’s real lashes  are very likely to come off. Amen?

Some would say, eyelash glue doesn’t hold as well as hair bonding glue. It’s not supposed to hold for 30 days. Your eyes are precious . If you’re not removing the eyelashes daily before bed, shame on you. If  eyelash glue is applied to the lash band properly you can get a great all day hold with something like Duo clear. I’ll admit the glue looks clear depending upon the lash band. If you’re using lashes with the clear plastic band, it can have the tendency of looking like  build up from the glue. I’ve had so much success with Duo. My lashes remain in place until I gently remove them. There isn’t any hair loss in the process.

Throw away the hair bonding glue. It’s just not worth it.  Give these a try. If they don’t work out; there are various options that are far safer than hair bonding glue. DSC_4866.jpg
