One of the things I love about natural hair is its versatility. There are many different options when it comes to styling natural hair, and a silk press is one of them. As you may or may not know, the silk press is a pretty popular styling technique.
A silk press is simply a modern-day press and curl. Instead of using a hot comb or a marcel iron, it is done using a flat iron. A silk press gives your natural hair the look of a relaxer, and you are left with hair that is light, silky and full of body.
In this video, hairstylist Annagjid “Kee” Taylor does a silk press on her client’s 4C hair.
