How to Get Your Curls Back After a Silk Press

Over the last few months, we have seen a surge in silk presses and the recent phenomenon of texture releases. These straightening hair
treatments are taking the natural hair scene by storm and honestly, we are so here for it as we see more and more curlies experimenting with their natural hair.But as much as we love trying something new, and we all know how versatile straight hair can be, what we don’t often see is how to revive your curls after a silk press and texture release. In this blog, we look at ways on how to get your curls back after a straightening session.


heat protectant for natural hair

Use a heat protectant

We cannot stress enough just how important it is to use a heat protectant prior to adding heat to your hair. It will help to protect your curls from damage in the first place making a non-negotiable step in your routine. Heat styling tools can often dry out the hair which can lead to your hair becoming brittle and prone to breakage. A heat protectant acts as a barrier between the styling tool and your curls. A good heat protectant will aim to preserve your curls. Heat damage where?

Hydrating ingredients is key!

After the straightening process your hair needs a whole lot of moisture! A hair moisturizer that contains hydrating ingredients such as Argan oil, Avocado oil, Vitamin E oil or Coconut oil will not only give your tresses a sleek look but also prevent it from drying up. This will help to penetrate the hair shaft and help to restore your hair. Apply a serum or moisturizer to your hair right after your silk press to help keep it shiny and hydrated.

Using a clarifying shampoo will remove any excessive build up from all the styling products that may be weighing your hair down. But remember not to overuse it as it can dry out the hair. Following up with a moisturizing conditioner can enhance and boost your curls and spring them back to life in no time.
