Best Silk Press Hair Products

When it comes to getting a silk press without damaging your curls, Revenge’s advice is simple. “Hair stays healthy while using heat by using the right products that specialize in heat protection and by keeping flat irons and blow dryers at a sensible heat setting,” he says.
