How to Silk Press

The Silk Press service has taken salons by storm. Bringing the client flexibility and manageability, we can see why it’s popular. A silk press smooths out the hair, promoting a sleek look with enhanced shine, lasting up to two weeks. Clients can wear hair however they like – poker straight or with added waves, curls or volume.

However, the success of a Silk Press will stand or fall depending on the products you use. Avlon’s KeraCare range of styling products will ensure your Silk Press service stands out from the crowd.

You want to start your service by making sure your client has freshly washed hair. Start with the KeraCare Thermal Wonder Pre-Poo Conditioner to lay the foundation for thermal processing. This treatment will hydrate both the hair and scalp while also detangling to reduce damage and breakage.

Then, use the KeraCare Thermal Wonder Cream Cleansing Shampoo to gently cleanses the hair and scalp of dirt, debris and flakes without stripping the natural oils. This shampoo will significantly enhance the moisture level of dry hair and scalp.


You will need to deep condition the hair for protection and moisture retention throughout the process. Because you’re using a high heat, you’ll want to use a protector to minimise damage to the hair. KeraCare Thermal Wonder 6 in 1 Thermal Protector acts as a leave in conditioner by sealing the cuticles and making it easier to detangle hair. It provides significant heat protection to help eliminate damage while blow-drying and flat-ironing and enables easier and faster straightening. It also helps to better control reversion and frizzing for longer-lasting straightness.


Comb or brush through the hair as you blow dry to get the hair as straight as possible at this point. Here you want to use KeraCare Silken Seal Blow Drying Lotion to protect your hair from thermal damage, whilst sealing the cuticles to prevent moisture loss while using the straighteners.


KeraCare Silken Seal adds the finishing touch with a high sheen to create ultra-silky and soft locks that retain body. The non-oily formula leaves the hair silky, shiny and with added volume and bounce.
