Q
I am trying to grow out a perm. I have very coarse hair that I am trying to grow back a certain length. I’m wondering which pressing oils or other hair care products will work best to keep my hair feeling soft and light? –Michelle

A
You have numerous choices when it comes to choosing which hot combs and oils to use. One technique for silkening Natural hair: Apply pure shea butter, or a lightweight cream press, to your hair and press your roots and edges with an old-school pressing comb. Use a ceramic or titanium flat iron to smooth the length of hair and achieve the light look you want.
