Silk Press FAQs

Prep for your appointment

Hair should be taken out of any previous style and  completely detangled. Clients cannot have used oils or waxes in their hair 14 days prior to silk press appointment. If so, wash your hair with Kinky Curly Come Clean or Malibu Un-doo Goo.

Clarify Your Hair

As stated, if any oil or wax was used in styling your hair in the last 14 days please clarify with Malibu Un-Doo Goo or Kinky Curly Come Clean. If residue is present in the hair upon appointment, this can result in heat damage.

** Disclaimer **

If you hair is dehydrated, your silk press longevity will be around four to seven days.

After Care

Products applied are heat activated, do not add any extra products after appointment. This will cause heat damage and product build-up. Clients are advised to wash their hair within seven to ten days post appointment.

Why is my hair frizzy after a silk press?

Two major reasons why your hair will frizz up after a silk press. First, It may be dehydrated. If you are not using the correct products, shampooing, often, or wearing a lot of protective styles, your hair is dehydrated. Your hair will find any opportunity to acquire hydration. This is how frizzing happens. Second reason may be because of your hair type. Fine, cottony hair types are usually porous. Highly porous hair gains and releases moisture fairly quickly which results in frizzing hair.

Science behind Silk Presses

Silk press is using an anti-humectant to stop the hair from reverting or frizzing out. It’s not one single product that creates the silk effect. it starts with the detox of all buildup and minerals, then the balance of pH through conditioning. and finally, the products and process of the blow dry and flatiron.

Design Essentials Treatment

The Design Essentials STS is an amino acid treatment that combats frizz and smooths your surface texture. This treatment is ideal for those who would like to smooth their surface texture and elongate their curls. It is also ideal for clients who would like to wear their hair straight And avoid frizz. This is not a relaxer, but it does permanently alter how your curls act.

How does it work?
The design Essentials STS works by utilizing small amino acid molecules to coat the hair. In this treatment, the hair is blow dried and flat ironed to seal this product in. You do not have to leave the salon with straight hair, we can turn it back curly after it has been blown dried and flat ironed.

How long does it last and what is the upkeep?
On the product website, it states this treatment lasts in the hair for up to 12 weeks. I have been using this product for 10 years and can tell you from firsthand experience this product stays in your hair until it has grown out and cut off just like any other smoothing treatment.

Who is it for?
This is not for everyone. If you want to learn your natural curl pattern, and how to care for it, this is not the service for you. This service best for clients who are having a hard time managing their curly or Coily hair and want some ease. This is for clients who want longer lasting silk presses.
