Marietta Natural Hair Pressing
More and more women are getting in on the natural hair care movement, but what can you do if you want to go natural but still wear your hair straight from time to time? Don’t worry, being a naturalista doesn’t mean you have to forego silky straight hair thanks to hair pressing!
What is hair pressing?
Hair pressing uses heat to straighten curls and waves. It is a way for women with naturally curly hair to occasionally wear their hair straight, and can last for anywhere from a few days to well over a week depending on your activity level, how you care for your pressed hair, humidity, and other factors. A skillful stylist can take your hair from tight coils to sleek and straight with hair pressing.
How to care for pressed hair
As with any type of heat styling, it’s important to protect your hair. Hair pressing works best with clean hair that is free of unnecessary products. A heat protectant should be applied to clean, dry hair before heat is applied.
To keep pressed hair looking good longer, wrap it, braid it, or put it in a bun to workout and be sure to wrap it or wear a silk scarf while sleeping.
If you miss the look of smooth, straight tresses, but don’t want to get a relaxer on your natural hair, having your hair professionally pressed is a great solution. Call Levell’s Salon in Marietta today to make your appointment!
