Kid's Silk Press for Easter



For Easter this year I did not have nearly as many kids to do as some other hairstylists, but I did do a few silk presses.  I simply love the look on a child's face once they see their hair transformed from being very curly to becoming very straight.  It is like an automatic confidence booster.



 This is a before picture.  The client has extremely thick, coarse, and tightly coiled hair.  Her hair reminded me of how my hair used to be before I got a relaxer.  I had to take very small sections with her hair to ensure that it all got straight.  I prepped her hair by using Silk Hydration by L. Jones Extreme Clean Clarifying Shampoo. I used this twice on her hair before I moved on to the Silk Hydration by L. Jones Extreme Moisture Shampoo.  I then put Silk Hydration by L.Jones Intense Moisturizing Treatment in the hair, let it sit for a while, then rinsed.


Next was time for the blow dry.  As I sectioned each piece of hair, I sprayed generous amounts of Silk Hydration by L. Jones Leave-In Conditioner on the hair to help me detangle and blow dry.  Once I did this on the entire head, I then began pressing it with my ceramic iron.  She had over one year's worth of dead ends so I trimmed that of which made a world of difference.


To maintain this her mother can wrap her hair for her every night.  Her mom can also put it in ponytails or style it however she wants.  Since the hair has been straightened, styling will be much easier.  Once she shampoos it again or gets it wet, it will go back to its natural state.  When your silk press is done correctly you do not have to worry about whether your hair will revert back or not.  Now this client's hair is all ready for Easter!
