Can you perm and color your hair in the same day?

I just got a perm, but I really need to touch up my color before I go out on an important date.

It can be done, preferably by a stylist, but is not the best thing for your hair as it might cause breakage or other damage if your hair is not in the best of shape.

It's not a good idea to color your hair after a perm. It should be the other way around - color first then a perm. You will mess up your perm or lose your perm if you touch it up with color.

i have done both. ususally you color first and then perm but you can do it the other way too.

I disagree. I been a stylist for 8 years now, and I have seen first-hand what happens when someone comes in with colored hair and puts a perm on. The perm solution will strip the color out. So it is best to perm first, then wait two weeks to color.  add a comment

It can be done but it is best left to a professional. Mixing the bleaches of the hair dying process with the chemicals of the coloring process can turn out disasterous unless you are trained to do this. If either of the processes were done at home then I would recommend you talk to your stylist to see about it.

Nopes you can't its also a safety precaution on a lot of such products. There should be at least 2-3 weeks or more gap between perming & coloring for scalp skin's safety purposes.
