Why do we always stress the importance of using a Nano Mister at the end of every lash service? We tell our clients not to wet their lashes for at least 24-48 hours, yet we still spray their lash extensions with fine-misted water. Sounds confusing right? Well let us help you make more sense of this.
The reason we use the Nano Mister is because it actually helps expedite the curing process of your adhesive, also known as flash curing. Instead of taking the usual 24-48 hours for the adhesive to cure, the Nano Mister cuts the recommended drying time down to 4-5 hours! This is a win/win for both you and your client as they no longer have to wait as long to wet their lashes and you, the lash artist, don’t have to worry about the threat of lash extensions curing together. Another great advantage of flash curing is that the Nano Mister helps reduce you and your client’s exposure to harmful fumes.
BUT HOW DOES THIS ALL WORK?
Well it really comes down to a bit of science. Cyanoacrylate, the main active ingredient in all eyelash extension adhesives must go through a polymerization process in order for it to “cure.” Polymerization is the act of single molecules reacting together to form a chain of molecules known as a polymer, which essentially means turning the adhesive from a liquid state to a solid state. For this process to occur, the Hydrogen molecule, which is found in water, must be present. This is why the Nano Mister is used to help accelerate the polymerization process.
BUT ARE ALL NANO MISTERS THE SAME?
Even though Nano Misters are designed to do the same thing, many Nano Misters are just not as effective and can actually be more damaging than good. Many Nano Misters on the market may actually spray water molecules that are just too large and instead wet your client’s lashes. A big no-no for good retention! A high-quality Nano Mister sprays only ultra-fine misted water that doesn’t wet your clients lashes and only aids in the adhesives curing process. It is an absolute must have and will change the way you lash!
