A warm exchange between Vice President Kamala Harris and Keke Palmer is shedding light on how the nation’s most senior-ranking politician achieves her silk press.

In a recent episode of Baby, This is Keke Palmer, the award-winning actress was spotted at the White House where she sat down with Harris to discuss life in the West Wing, maternal health, and of course, hair.

After the pair talked about the much-needed conversation about women’s health in America, the 29-year-old Illinois native asked the 58-year-old California-born VP about how she achieves her effortless silk press.

“Question number one,” Palmer initiated. “How many times a month do you get a silk press?”

The Vice President explained: “So you know, I don’t use a curling iron. It’s too much heat, I use a round brush.”

The Akilah and the Bee star appeared stunned by her response. “Now what kind of magical round brush? Your hair must be super fine, Madam VP.”

“No, it’s not,” Harris side-splittingly replied. “It takes a while. A boar-bristle… it takes a lot of heat. But it’s too much heat to do that.”

To which Palmer hilariously responded “Girl, you have us shook on the internet. You and Queen Latifah are going neck-and-neck with the silk presses.”

Since assuming office in January 2021, Harris has remained a trailblazer in politics and style. She is known to don a neutral power suit with pops of jewel-toned accessories; her hair always without a strand out of place.

One of her most iconic outfits was on inauguration day, when she wore a Christopher John Rogers amethyst-hued calf-length jacket, black leather gloves accessorized with a pearl and silver necklace with matching earrings – and a silk press!
