Silk Press on Kinky/Coarse Hair

 This client thought there was no hope for her hair.  She really didn't think that it would get straight, let alone look cute. Boy, was she wrong!  I was so excited to get started on her.  She was headed somewhere very important and needed for her hair to be on point. Let's get started on her process.

Just to give you some history on her hair she has been relaxer free for about five years.  She has worn braids and weaves but rarely wore her own hair out. So she had no idea when her last trim was and thought she was going to be practically bald when she left because she knew she had to get one.  In this process I shampooed and conditioned with Silk Hydration by L. Jones Clarifying Shampoo and Intense Moisturizing Treatment.  After I towel dried the hair, I then applied Silk Hydration by L. Jones Leave-In Conditioner before I proceeded to blow the hair out.  
 After blowing it out I was able to get a better view of the ends.  I forgot to take a before picture of how it looked without a trim but there was about 2 1/2 inches that needed to be cut.  Relaxer free ladies can always tell when their ends need to be trimmed when getting a silk press because the hair will look very frizzy and feel really rough on the ends.  It will be silky straight from the root then all of a sudden look unruly on the ends.  This is due to the fact that relaxer free women don't wrap their hair so their ends are exposed.  Once sleeping, the friction from the hair rubbing against different fabrics makes the ends split more often. It's hard to tell if they are split when all of the hair is curly but very easy to notice when getting a silk press.
To maintain this look she will wrap nightly and put on her silk scarf.  To control frizz she can spray Silk Hydration by L. Jones Miracle Potion no9.
