A Perm and Hair Color
Q: Should I put a color in my hair before a perm or what do you prefer I do first? How long should I wait before I do them?
Generally, speaking as long as the hair is in good condition, you can proceed with color at any time after your perm service. However, most salons and stylist will recommend a little bit of time between services to allow the hair to “normalize” again. I suggest at least a week or two in between, during which time you should focus on conditioning the hair to rstore the moisture balance and reseal the cuticle layer.
The one-to-two week break between services can also help to keep the cost of your hair services spread out so as not to tax your budget unnecessarily.

Is it safe to put non-permanent comb-in hair color on a newly permed head?
