5 Ways to Make Your Silk Press Last Even Longer
Well, I've got you on how to make your hair last longer.
It’s already a given that we would want our silk press to last for a good amount of time.
However as I have mentioned before your silk press will normally last for approximately 2-3 weeks max. So here are 5 ways to make your silk press last longer.
1) Keep Your Split Ends at Bay
Trim your ends regularly. When your hair has been straightened it’s easier to see those split ends so ensure that your hair is trimmed when you decide to wear it straight.
2) Opt for Flat Curls
Curling those layers of natural curls into bouncy curls will look majestic. Opt for a smooth, flat silk press with a light curl on the ends. It will be easier to maintain and less likely to revert as easily.
3) Use Less Products
To keep your strands bouncy and silky, avoid using too much product, which will cause the hair to look weighed down.
4) Avoid Moisture
Try your best to avoid getting any moisture in your hair. The smallest amount of moisture and/or humidity in the air will have your freshly silk pressed hair looking frizzy and puffy. In the shower, make sure you wrap your hair with a satin scarf and a shower cap!
5) Wrap Your Hair
If you’re not into the mood of keeping your hair down, secure your strands with a silk wrap. Keeping it wrapped will shield your mane from environmental factors like wind, humidity, or harsh weather which could potentially ruin your hair.
