You may have bleached your hair in order to achieve a certain look, but now you're ready for a change.
Maybe you're tired of the upkeep that bleached hair requires, or maybe you're just looking for a new style.
Whatever the reason, you're thinking about getting a perm. But can you perm bleached hair?
The answer is yes...and no. It depends on the strength of your hair and the condition it's in.
Bleach damages your hair, making it weaker and more brittle. So if your hair is already in poor condition, then perming it will only make matters worse.
On the other hand, if your hair is healthy and strong, then a perm should be no problem.
But even if your hair is strong enough to withstand a perm, that doesn't mean you should go ahead and do it without taking some precautions first.
Bleached hair is more susceptible to heat damage, so you'll need to be extra careful when applying the chemicals used in perms.
Be sure to follow the instructions carefully and don't leave the chemicals on your hair for too long. And once you've got your perm, avoid using heated styling tools as much as possible to prevent further damage.
So there you have it!
You can perm bleached hair...but only if your hair is healthy and strong enough to take the chemicals used in perms.
And even then, you'll need to take some precautions to prevent further damage.
So think carefully before taking the plunge—once you've got a perm, there's no going back!
