Silk Press Sunday | Adding Permanent Color Highlights To Natural Hair
Before I begin this post, let me first go ahead and apologize for not taking ANY before pictures. I have plenty of excuses as to why but the fact of the matter is that I did not even realize that I had not taken any pictures yet until after I had gotten finished. Anyway, this client has 90% relaxer free hair when she first came in and only a few relaxed ends. She was ready for a change because she was tired of wearing her hair in a bun/ponytail. Her hair is extremely thick, so much so that she shampoos it in four separate sections. So by the time she got finished shampooing she had no desire to even try to attempt to style, hence the ponytail/high bun life.
When she came in, I first began by coloring her hair (foil method) all over the head.
After her hair was colored, I rinsed well, shampooed with Silk Hydration by L. Jones shampoo (both), then gave her hair a deep conditioning treatment with Silk Hydration by L. Jones Intense Moisturizing Treatment. Once I rinsed that, I generously applied the Silk Hydration leave-in.
The next step was doing the silk press. I blow dried the hair and right before I was about to actually press it, I went ahead and clipped the ends and cut her hair into long layers, cutting most of the relaxed part off (per her request).
After I finished pressing, I simply curled it into is layered cut.
After done, this client was very happy with her hair. She loved the look of the color, as well as the cut which means I have done my job! To maintain her look she will wrap it up every night. It will go back to its natural state when she shampoos it again.
