Have you ever seen a video of a straight and shiny hairstyle and thought to yourself, Man, I wish my hair could look like that...but I would HATE to damage my curls"?
If so, then you're not alone.
Many women with natural hair get occasional silk presses when they want their hair straightened. However, some women avoid using heat on their hair altogether out of fear that their hair will not revert back to its natural state.
The term silk press is used to describe the process of temporarily straightening natural hair without the use of chemicals.
People who like to rock a sleek and shiny look but don’t want a relaxer, often turn to the use of blow dryers and flat irons to get the job done.
