The Lashe® Rapid Dry adhesive is the same quality of adhesive as those used for suture-less wound closure. It is the most sterile adhesive available on the market. The adhesive is so effective that extensions will bond to the natural lash and hold from 4-6 weeks to the end of the natural lash’s life cycle, which could be up to 90 days, depending on client characteristics and homecare. Suitable for more than 95% of your clients.
The Rapid Dry adhesive is the basis of The Lashe® Technique. Its concentrated formula will increase your speed and efficiency during lash application. You will be able to apply more lashes per minute that hold without having to separate extensions at the end of the appointment. The extensions will feel soft and light with maximum hold.
The Lashe® exclusive packaging keeps the adhesive fresh. You will always be able to dispense your adhesive within its shelf life. Drying and hardening are a thing of the past. We guarantee 100 applications per bottle, if instructions are followed. A stylist with 2 or more years of experience can expect to get more. Shelf life of the Rapid Dry adhesive is 4 months, opened or unopened.

Rapid Dry Adhesive Instructions
Step 1: Shake adhesive well. To open, hold the bottle at the neck and unscrew the cap. Do not squeeze the body of the bottle as it will force adhesive through the nozzle. One hand must be on the neck and the other on the cap.
Step 2: Attach a dosing tip by placing it on the nozzle of the bottle firmly and leave it on for the duration.
Step 3: If lashes are clean and free of makeup, saturate them with saline using two oval and pointed cotton swabs. If lashes are not clean, cleanse with an oil free cleanser, like The Lashe® Cleansers, and then you must rinse with saline twice. Use two sets of cotton swabs to do this in order to thoroughly rinse cleanser and then dehydrate the natural eyelashes. Avoiding this step is like putting makeup on a soapy face.
Step 4: Dispense a small drop of adhesive on a flat, non-porous surface, like our 2” round Adhesive Shield. You will need to re-drop a small drop every 15 to 20 minutes or so, depending on your speed and room dynamics.
Step 5: Coat only the base of the extension up to 1/4 of its overall length (half of the half). Enter at the bottom of the adhesive drop, then down and out to exit. At this point you should have a bead of adhesive at the end of the extension no larger than twice the thickness of the extension at the base, i.e. with a 0.15mm extension you should have a bead no larger than 0.30mm.
Step 6: Place the extension on the natural lash 2mm away from the lash line (about the thickness of a nickel). Move the extension to 1mm from the lash line (a little less than the thickness of a dime), orientate and release. Make sure there is a seamless connection between the extension and natural lash with no air pockets.
Store adhesive in a cool, dry place; not on a cold surface. Do Not Refrigerate.
We recommend the use of our dosing tips; they help control the size of the drop and keep the air out of the bottle. They prevent accidents and over-pouring thus controlling adhesive usage.
The proper method for coating the extensions is to be entering the adhesive drop at the same point and close to the flat surface. This will keep the outer layer intact. Breaking the surface tension will cause the adhesive to dry out faster. Exit the drop by pushing down and out to create a smooth coating and to pick up a bead at the end of the extension. So long as there is a seamless connection, the extensions will stay on for the full life cycle of the lashes and shed together with the natural lashes. If you see popping off at the back, this is a technique issue or the client is using oil based products at home.
The formulation is concentrated and very little adhesive is necessary to create a seamless bond. The adhesive will allow you to work quicker once you get the rhythm of it. Do not over work the adhesive as it will dry in the air and not bond properly. Do not “paint” the adhesive on the lashes. You should not see any clumps or have to separate lashes at the end of the appointment. The adhesive is formulated not to cross bond with itself or cause static electricity.
The Lashe® Conditioner is a fabulous aftercare product, but we also use it as a prep product prior to the extension application in order to un-tangle unruly or wiry lashes. In that case, and after you have cleansed the lashes, take two micro-brushes and acquire a small amount of conditioner from the conditioner applicator. Apply to the natural and extension lashes, if any. Rinse with saline. The conditioner has a built in detangler that will separate the lashes. It will also bring extended lashes back to life.
If dosing tip self-seals, snip the tip of the dosing tip to dispense. The dosing tip need not be removed during the day as the adhesive creates a meniscus after adhesive is dispensed, creating an airtight seal. We recommend that you place the bottle cap atop the dosing tip for added protection.
