Natural hair that’s soft, straight, and blows in the wind, bouncing as you move is one simple treatment away. Enter: The modern-day silk press. Silk pressing is an African hair straightening technique that has taken the international stage by storm and is currently making a comeback in South Africa.
Silk pressing is considered the best way to straighten natural ethnic hair. The emphasis is on natural hair because chemically relaxed hair is already straight and does not need to be pressed. The technique uses a titanium flat iron, but no heavy oils, as excessive use of these can add weight to the hair. Instead, a light oil serum is used to promote a silky shine.
This is one of those hair techniques that has dramatic before and after effects. It creates an illusion by transforming your ethnic hair to look as though it has just been relaxed. Hair pressing is all about a drastic transformation to the look, texture and appearance of African hair. If you’re looking for a new hairdo that your friends will rave about, then this is it. The best part? It lasts as long as 2 to 3 weeks.
Silk press hair straightener processes make use of heat straightening and pressing oil for natural hair. It’s all about keeping the hair light, shiny and conditioned. Your hair needs to be strong and nourished enough to survive the heated straightening procedures however.
