can I perm and color at the same time

Can you get your hair permed and highlighted at the same time? If not, how long would you wait inbetween?

I have dark brown wavy hair that I've been getting permed 1-2 times a year for 3 years now. I did foil highlights before I started getting it permed and miss the way it looked. It has been practically one year since I've had anything done to it since I'm pregnant. I'm about to burst because I'm ready to all types of things to it after waiting for 9 months. Honestly, I would get highlights while pregnant, except I heard the hormone changes can effect the color.

My hair is pretty thick and even though it's broken off in some places, you really can't tell with it being curly and all.

Re: can I perm and color at the same time

Hi Lynn, My hair stylist does it for me about every three to four months at the same time. I do have very oily hair and she uses semi-perm so my case may be different, but I would definately ask. I know its not common, but it can be done.

Congratulations on your pregnancy and enjoy your appointment!

That would fry your hair, I would wait 2 weeks in between treatments.
