With the arrival of spring, it's time to whip out the hot comb/flat iron for silk press season! For those of us who love the sleekness of hair during this season, maintaining its luster and smoothness amidst the changing weather conditions becomes paramount. Fear not, our Bask and Lather products are exactly what your hair needs! Our products are formulated with the right ingredients needed to keep your silk press looking flawless all season long.

Strengthen Shampoo:
Begin your silk press maintenance routine with a gentle yet effective shampoo. Our Strengthen shampoo has a sulfate-free formula that cleanses the scalp and hair without stripping away natural oils or causing excess dryness. Our hair-strengthening shampoo is formulated with high-quality, premium, all-natural ingredients that balance your scalp's PH, provide moisture, and remove product build up. As well as, the shampoo strengthens your hair from root to tip therefore your hair strands will be able to withstand heat better.  


Follow up the shampoo with our hydrating conditioner to replenish moisture and restore softness to your hair. Our hydrating conditioner is formulated with high-quality, premium, all-natural ingredients that will your hair and bring it back to life. The conditioner improves hair elasticity and strength to reduce breakage and shedding. This makes detangling your hair 10 times easier on wash day.  A good conditioner will make your hair easier and quicker to flat iron for your silk presses.

Deep Conditioner:
Incorporating a deep conditioning treatment into your hair routine right before your silk press is essential for maintaining the health and vitality of your hair, especially as the weather transitions. Opt for our  Aloe & Honey Deep Conditioner to rejuvenate your hair. It's meticulously crafted with a blend of aloe, honey, olive oil, muru muru seed butter, avocado oil, rice protein, vitamin B6, castor oil, and shea butter. These ingredients will aid to fortify  your hair strands and minimize frizz so your silk press lasts a very long time.

Scalp Oil:
A nourished scalp is the foundation for healthy hair growth and a long-lasting silk press. Treat your scalp to our Scalp Stimulator Oil as it is made with cold pressed oils, and infused with rosemary and mint along with other vital ingredients to stimulate hair growth with regular use! Our hair growth stimulant is rich in omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids, providing vital nutrients to nourish your scalp and increase blood circulation to hair follicles. We do recommend regular scalp massages but do be mindful that your hair will start growing really fast which may shorten your silk press maintenance time.

Edge Control:
To put the finishing touches on your sleek silk press hairstyle, invest in a high-quality edge control product to tame flyaways and lay down unruly edges. Our Strong Hold Thick Edges Control not only lays your edges, it moisturizes, softens, and thickens your edges also. It's free of parabens and drying alcohols so, no worries about drying out your hair and breakage. Our edge control will provide long-lasting hold without leaving behind a sticky residue or flakiness. Apply a small amount of edge control to your edges and smooth them down using a soft bristle brush or your fingertips for a polished and flawless finish.

Maintaining a silk press hairstyle throughout the spring season requires a combination of proper care and the right products. By incorporating a gentle shampoo, hydrating conditioner, nourishing deep conditioner, scalp oil, and edge control into your hair care routine, you can ensure that your silk press remains sleek, smooth, and beautiful all season long. Embrace the beauty, length and sheen of your silk press this spring and step out with confidence knowing that your hair is well-taken care of.
