Achieving the Perfect Silk Press with Curls

July 21, 20232 min read

When it comes to hairstyling techniques that transform natural hair into a sleek, shiny, and voluminous masterpiece, the silk press reigns supreme. For those who want to enjoy the smoothness of relaxed hair without the commitment or potential damage, a silk press with curls is an ideal option. In this post, we'll dive into the details of achieving the perfect silk press with curls.

What is a Silk Press?

A silk press is a modern version of the traditional press and comb method. It's a temporary hair straightening technique that doesn’t involve any chemicals. Instead, it employs a combination of heat and deep conditioning treatments to straighten and smooth natural curls, resulting in straight, silky hair that has bounce and movement.

Adding Curls to Your Silk Press

For a silk press with curls, the process involves an extra step. After your hair is silk pressed, the stylist will use a curling iron or curling wand to create stunning, voluminous curls that add an extra level of sophistication and glamour to your look.

The Process

The process starts with a thorough shampoo and conditioning, ideally using sulfate-free products to avoid stripping your hair of its natural oils. This is followed by a deep conditioning treatment to infuse the hair with moisture, essential for protecting the hair from heat damage.

The hair is then blow-dried using a comb attachment, ensuring it's as straight as possible before the flat iron comes into play. A heat protectant is applied to shield the hair from potential heat damage. The stylist will then use a high-quality flat iron to press the hair from root to tip, achieving the 'silk press' look.

Next, the stylist will section your hair and use a curling iron to create beautiful, bouncy curls. The size of the curls will depend on the size of the iron's barrel. Smaller barrels create tighter curls, while larger barrels give you loose, glamorous waves.

After the curls are set, the stylist will apply a light finishing spray to keep them in place while maintaining the hair's natural movement.

Benefits of a Silk Press with Curls

A silk press with curls allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds. You'll experience the softness and manageability of straight hair, with the added elegance and volume of curls. It’s an excellent choice for special occasions, or just as a treat to yourself.

The key to a successful silk press with curls is to have it done professionally. At Anishia Styles, we have expert stylists experienced in this technique, ensuring you receive a high-quality service that leaves your hair healthy, shiny, and beautifully styled.

In conclusion, a silk press with curls offers a fantastic way to change up your look temporarily, giving you silky, straight hair combined with bouncy, vivacious curls. Always remember to maintain proper hair care practices post-treatment, and consult your stylist for any personalized advice.
