You should wait at least 24 hours, and most stylists recommend 2-3 days. The longer you wait the better, if you wash it right away you might lose a lot of the curl.

Krimping is better than perming because perming uses chemicals that can damage your hair and you have to wait for it to grow out but krimping while it isn't good for your hair is not a bad as perming

Im my opinion as a cosmetology student: we wash everyones hair before a perm! Your hair has to be washed to remove the build up and possible medication build up on the hair! So yes you should wash your hair; use a clarifying shampoo(from the salon) and wash your hair twice in luke warm water. Do not condition the hair. And use a porosity balancer brfore you use the perming solutuion.

Hair color can be applied to your hair at least 2 weeks after a perm. Alternately if you color your hair first you must wait 2 weeks before perming.

Currently there are no lasers that are designed to perm hair. The perming process uses chemicals to change the bonds between certain amino acid molecules in hair. Currently, the laser energy is both too strong and non-specific so it will only damage hair. Perhaps in the (not too distant??) future they will design lasers with hair perming in mind that will either directly produce the perming effect or augment the curent array of chemicals that perm hair.

It depends...According to professionals, you should wait at least 3 days, you should consider a swim cap (even though they aren't fashionable for some women). After perming your hair you should wait at least around 48 hours before even washing your hair. After swimming you should wash your hair thoroughly without scratching your scalp, with fresh water."Swimmer's shampoo and conditioners" are suggested for permed or not permed hair.Ask your hair stylist for suggestions on different hair products.

Yes it is very bad and if you don't have the right hair it could dissolve and burn your hair

Nothing particularly bad will happen to your hair. although, you should wait until the perm from your hair is gone by A.cutting it all off or B.going natural and waiting for the perm to disappear. Also, if you want your hair to be moisturized and textured, you will need to co-wash your hair (wash it with conditioner instead of shampoo). Do it weekly, and your hair will receive more natural oils giving it body and texture,

No, that doesn't even make sense...

Yes, however only when the person doing the perm does not know what the chemicals in the perm and neutraliser are capable of doing to the hair. Always ensure your hairdresser does a number of hair tests before perming the hair. If the hairdresser has done this and has experience of perming hair, then it will be safe to have a perm.

you should do it during a petticoat punnishment and perming hair be a part of it

No. As long as there is hair on your head and you don't treat the lice, they will continue to live.

Yes, antique blonde it is also the most resistant to color and perming.

User Avatar

don't ever dye your hair right after perming you must wait two weeks after or dye it two weeks before, you must remember perming and colouring hair are the two most damaging things to do to your hair especially if it isn't done correctly, so you must give your hair time to adjust to its new state before doing it any more damage. hope this helps

User Avatar

it depends on your hair type because the things you use to do a perm might damage your hair if it is already damaged!!

User Avatar

Yes you can, but wash your hair as soon as you get out. Chlorine can turn blond or light hair green, even if it's natural. If you leave the chlorine out of the pool your hair can still turn green from the algae, I've witnessed this. You'll be fine as long as you shampoo as soon as you get out. Or use a swim cap to keep your hair dry if you can't wash it right away.

No not at all your hair will become damaged. what you have to do is stop perming your hair and then the perm hair will break off and your natural hair will come back in.
