What is a Silk Press?

A silk press is the clever combination of the right products and hot tools to create a super silk-like straight hairstyle – even on very curly or kinky afro hair. Silk presses date back to as early as the 90’s where a hot comb and oil/ the press and curl technique was used.

 

Gone are the days where one would have to subject themselves to the horrors of a hot comb. A flat iron should be your go to tool.

 

What products do you use for a Silk Press?

A shampoo and conditioner of your choice as well as serums and light oils are preferred before doing a silk press. Ensure that you deep condition your hair in order to lock in moisture and avoid damage.

 

Is a Silk Press bad for your hair?

Too much heat can definitely cause damage to your hair. It is often advisable to use a heat protectant serum before you do a silk press to prevent any damage. Avoid too much heat and use moderate heat instead.

 

How long does a Silk Press last for?

A silk press can last for 2 to up to 4 weeks with the right maintenance in place. Avoid too much humidity, water or steam.
