And one rule that matters over all others? Don’t let just anybody put their hands in your head! Make sure you properly vet your hairstylists before you commit to a silk press appointment. Make sure that both you and your stylists know how to avoid damage before you move forward.
A silk press can run anywhere from $60 to $300. That’s a wide range, right? Well, it totally depends on your stylists and what they charge based on the style you’re going for and your overall hair needs. If your hair needs a wash, trim, and style after the press, expect to pay a little more out of pocket.
On the flip side, you would expect that a silk press done at home would cost a lot less, but not exactly. Investing in a good blow dryer, flat iron, and the proper hair products may cost up to $400. However, that’s only for the initial investment. You should be smooth sailing after that!
