For several years now I have been doing silk presses on natural hair. As of now, since more and more people have gone natural, I pretty much do them every day. I have also done a lot of posts on the process of a silk press because a lot of women who do not have a relaxer still choose to wear their hair straight, but they just do not want the chemical in their hair. Others choose to wear their hair straight just every now and then when they want a length check.

No matter how often you choose to get your hair silk pressed, the fact of the matter is that a silk press is basically the illusion of making unrelaxed hair look like it is relaxed. The question came up of can you get a silk press if you have relaxed hair. The answer is no because if your hair is already relaxed, you do not need to make it appear as if it were relaxed. All you would be doing is getting your hair flat ironed.

Relaxed clients get this look without as much effort as it takes to get a silk press so not only is it much easier to maintain, it also lasts longer because if you have relaxed hair you really do not have to worry about frizz and your hair going curly on you.
