What is a silk press and how does it work?
A silk press is a spin-off of the “press and curl”, which was a popular 1990s method of straightening curly hair through the use of oil and high heat. Silk presses are like the press and curl’s, cooler, younger sister—with this method giving the effect of smooth and straight hair, without the use of harsh chemicals, using less heat, and providing more bounce and movement than a press and curl could ever accomplish.
Just like most other in-salon hair treatments, a silk press will always start with a thorough shampooing. Washing the hair to prep it for a silk press treatment is essential, as it cleanses the scalp and hair from any existing product, residue, or debris. Following a meticulous wash, your stylist will perform a deep conditioning treatment on your hair that will nourish and add moisture to further prepare your locks for the upcoming steps.
The next step entails blow-drying the hair using a round or paddle brush, where your hair will be blown out until it is completely dry. Blow drying the hair as straight as it can get serves as a way to eliminate applying extra heat to the hair unnecessarily with a flat iron, in turn giving a softer and smoother texture. The final stage of completing the silk press is the actual “press”—the freshly dried hair is smoothed to perfection with a flat iron, from roots to tips.
