Can bleached hair be permed?
Nature of bleached hair
Recently, there have been many people who have been colouring their hair in order to achieve a gradiation or highlights. For those who bleach their hair, the colour would permeate easily into the hair and it has been a recent trend.
However, once the hair is bleached, it strips the hair off everything which is why the colour can go on really easily but also fade very quickly. As such, with countless times of colouring, the colour starts to fade off quicker and quicker. It is very harmful for one's hair as well.
Permed hair techniques
Perming is one of the most difficult thing to master even with long years of experience because every customer's hair texture and damage levels are different. With bleached hair, it is hard to even curl the ends of the hair because the hair has been stripped off of everything with the bleach. It might end up curling in random directions and the desired hairstyle might not be achieved. The hair might also break off due to its brittleness from the bleach. It is hard to repair brittle hair as well as hair damaged because of bleaching so this needs to be considered fully before one goes for a bleaching session.
Once the hair is damaged, it is indeed hard to repair it.
