Q:

Can you get a perm and dye your hair on the same day?

A:

Semi-permanent and demi-permanent hair colors allow for perming and coloring hair on the same day according to Clairol. When doubling up on these hair treatments, the perm should always come first, followed by the color.

The chemicals in a perm cause the hair shafts to open. This leaves the hair porous, and porous hair is perfect for the coloring process. The hair color takes less time to absorb, and less time on the hair means less damage to the hair.

Make sure to only use semi-permanent or demi-permanent hair colors after a perm. If a harsher permanent hair color is needed, wait at least a week before dyeing to avoid damaging the hair. Maintain the vibrancy of the color by using shampoos and other hair products specially formulated for chemically and color treated hair.

    How do you dye dark hair blonde?

    A:

    Going from brunette to blonde is a big change that's a little more complicated than dyeing a lighter color to a darker color. Bleaching the hair lighter than desired, then adding warmth with the appropriate darker color and any desired highlights is time-consuming, but generally produces the best results. Good aftercare is also essential, as lightening the hair can cause damage.
