About our signature Silk Press

A silk press is a hair-straightening technique typically used on natural, curly hair to achieve a smooth, sleek look without the use of chemical relaxers. The process involves washing, conditioning, blow-drying, and flat-ironing the hair with specialized tools and products to enhance shine and manageability. Here’s a step-by-step overview of the silk press process:

1. Cleansing: The hair is thoroughly washed with a Natural Hair Rocks moisturizer shampoo to remove any buildup, followed by a moisturizing shampoo to hydrate the hair.

2. Conditioning: A Natural Hair Rocks deep conditioner or a moisturizing treatment is applied to nourish and strengthen the hair, ensuring it remains healthy during the heat styling process.

3. Blow-drying: After rinsing out the conditioner, the hair is blow-dried using a blow dryer and a brush or a comb attachment to stretch and smooth the hair.

4. Heat Protection: A heat protectant product is applied to safeguard the hair from potential damage caused by high temperatures.

5. Flat-ironing: Small sections of the hair are straightened using a flat iron, typically set at a high temperature. This step is crucial for achieving the sleek, silky finish characteristic of a silk press.

6. Finishing: Natural Hair Rocks Silk Serum A light serum or oil applied to add extra shine and reduce any frizz.

A silk press can last up to two weeks, depending on hair type, maintenance, and environmental factors. It’s a popular choice for those seeking a temporary change from their natural curls to a straight hairstyle.
