Is it okay if I get streaks into my perm hair?

I am thinking about getting a perm. I was thinking about dyeing it. But I found out that I can't do that to my perm hair because it will fall out. But, is it okay if I get streaks into my perm hair instead? Or what about highlights? Please let me know. Thanks.

Be VERY careful about getting your hair permed. I have naturally normal-dry ish hair and asked the lady if a perm would damage my hair, and instead of telling me the truth, she said it wouldn't, and that perms fall out after 3-4 months. 9 months later my hair is still looking like Taylor Swift and now a year later I am rocking a bob hair cut trying to get the fried out of my hair when I was trying to grow my hair out before and had it almost halfway down my back.

If you have healthy hair that doesn't overly shed after a perm or dries out badly, then streaks should be ok. They have color for permed hair that is more gentle. I'd have a hairdresser do it to make sure the perm doesn't cause the streak color to end up being weird. She may even tell you the color should come before the perm. I think they like to wait a month between perm and color.
