A silk press is a modern day press and curl that gives natural hair the look like it has been relaxed. It allows the natural hair to be very straight, shiny, silky, and soft. It is for natural hair only because relaxed hair is already straight so the need to press it is not necessary. A silk press on relaxed hair is just a flat iron. Unlike a traditional press and comb, a silk press does not use a hot comb. Instead, a very good flat iron is used. Also, absolutely no grease is used with a silk press, although a light oil serum can be used to add shine without weighing the hair down. I use the high quality products from the Silk press line which is infused with a ton of moisturizers, like liquid silk, already in the products. Let's take a look at a client I had who received her first silk press in a long time.
