Can you straighten your hair after getting a perm?

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.
