Yes, you can straighten your hair after getting a perm. Try and wait at least 48 hours as it's really hard on your hair to do two chemical services in one day. Make sure your hair is in good condition-use a hot oil reconstruction treatment such as cholesterol the day prior to straightening. Afterwards, you will need to keep it in good condition, too. Make sure you use a good shampoo and daily conditioner. If you cannot afford to buy one in a salon or supply house, try a leave-in conditioner such as Infusium 23. You might also try waiting a week or so, often people don't like their perms because they are so different than the hair they are used to. Waiting will give the perm time to relax and give you time to get used to your new look.

It depends on what kind of hair perm you got.With a straightening perm(rebonding),you actually need to use straightening shampoo to straighten it to keep your hair that way for months.If you got a curly perm however,don't take the risk until your curly perm has fully grown out.If not, you waste your money that you spent to curl your hair because your hair will become straight too quickly and the perm won't last for as long as you would expect.
