Stylist Secrets to a Perfect Silk Press
There are some secrets that we feel you should know regarding your next Thermal Silkening service. Just what does it take to get a Silk Press that outlasts the summer weather while preventing damage?
The Tools: Does a $50 flat iron do the same thing as a $250 professional flat iron? No, absolutely not. Having the best possible quality of tools allows for more efficient plates, better heat capacities, and sizing that leads to a smoother result
The Products: It is crucial to begin with a shampoo and conditioner that clarify and cleanse the scalp, then optimize moisture and prevent frizz. Then, you must protect the hair with the best leave-in and thermal sprays for your texture. And of course, the right finishing products ensure you stay selfie-ready
The Preparation: Pairing your silks with a treatment plan as recommended by your stylist is really the key to making sure your silk press lasts! Let’s say you have naturally curly hair, rarely straighten it out, and go straight in for that silkening. You might expect to need a refresher in a few days. Clients who keep up on their healthy hair treatments and STS Express services can get 2 weeks out of their salon visit
The Aftercare: Your stylist will recommend finishing under the dryer to set your style, and we know how much you dread dryer time, but it matters. It helps with sustaining a straight strand. Use the product recommendations from your stylist and their sleeping instructions to make sure you stay fresh and clean!
