Discover the Beauty of Silk Pressing
Silk pressing has gained immense popularity as a safe and effective hair straightening technique for those with naturally curly hair. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the silk press process, maintenance tips, and essential hair care advice. At our black-owned salon, specializing in natural hair, we are dedicated to making your hair beautiful, manageable, and healthy.
The Silk Press Process:
Cleansing and Conditioning: We begin with a cleansing shampoo and deep conditioner. Additional treatments, such as Olaplex, can be added for an additional charge. Olaplex helps revive curls and maintain strength while adding softness to the hair.
Blow-Drying and Prepping
After drying the hair as straight as possible, we apply serum, heat protectant, and sealer to achieve a silky effect. We use high-quality tools that ensures efficient straightening without causing damage or breakage.
Trim for Smoothness: To achieve optimal silkiness, a trim is essential after the press. Our stylists are conservative and will only cut as much as you are comfortable with, removing split ends and reducing frizz.
Maintaining Your Silk Press:
1. Protect from Moisture: A silk press must stay dry to maintain its straightness. Use a shower cap during showers to prevent moisture from affecting the style.
2. Overnight Care: Properly wrap your hair overnight to preserve the style. One technique is to keep the roots tight with a ponytail to avoid root puffiness.
3. Limit Excessive Heat and Chemicals: Avoid excessive heat or harsh chemicals, as they can cause damage and breakage. Touch-ups with a straightener at home can be done sparingly.
