Q: Can I bleach my hair after itís been permanently straightened (itís been 6 weeks)? Thank you.
A: According to everything I have read about most of the permanent straightening methods, you can safely bleach your hair after having
a permanent straightening process. However, you will likely want to consult with the salon that performed your straightening service,
since some straightening processes cannot be performed safely on hair that has been bleached too significantly. This means that you
could encounter problems after having the hair bleached with maintaining the straightened hair.
From what I have found, lightening the hair is not a problem in and of itself, unless you lighten
the hair too much, at which point the hair becomes too fragile to withstand the additional processing of the straightening chemicals.
For this reason, it is vital that you consult with the stylist who straightened your hair to make certain you understand the
consequences of any addition chemical processes you intend to have done.
