Humidity’s Role in Lash Fallout

Lash fallout is a cycle we all learn to develop a love-hate relationship with. We love to hate it because it takes away from the fluffy, voluminous lashes we aspire to have, but we have no choice but to love it because it ensures that our natural lashes are still staying healthy. A few reasons come into play when dealing with an excessive amount of lash fallout, one being humidity. Although we cannot blame mother nature entirely for lash fallout, the weather certainly plays a factor.

If you have stepped foot outside in New England during the summer months, it is very likely you have crossed that threshold from your air conditioned home to the harsh, humid air. Boston summer’s average 81% humidity, and where your hair probably doesn’t agree with the humidity, lash adhesive doesn’t either. Although lash artists have mastered their own professional skills of lashing, they don’t stand a chance against New England’s summer heat. If you have experienced an excessive amount of lash fallout recently, there could be a number of reasons behind it, but one possibility to look into is the humidity. The hot moisture we all feel in the air is also felt by the adhesive used with extensions. The initial strong bond between the natural lashes and the extensions is easily softened due to the moisture in the air.

When getting your lashes done at WinQ Lash Bar, you may notice at the end of every appointment the artist uses a nano mister. This is to seal the outer layer of the adhesive in order to ensure your lashes are ready to brace the Boston air and anything else that comes their way. Also, we ensure that our rooms humidity levels are low enough so that the adhesive dries properly.  

Although we cannot avoid the humidity during the summer months here in Boston, we do have a few helpful tips in order to ensure your lashes last as long as possible, despite the humidity.
