ASAP! Should I perm and color my hair and if so how? ASAP?

ASAP! Should I perm and color my hair and if so how? ASAP? Topic: Good media research topics

Question: I have considered getting a partial highlights (highlights just on top layer of hair) for a long time but I have been scared to because of my hair color, I have dark brown hair with blonde and red highlights. To me whatever highlight color I would get it wouldn't look natural. I have always wanted curly hair. I got a perm 4 years ago but it never took to my hair well (yes I did go to a salon). After, research I thought maybe if I just got a full color and a perm it would look good. So, my most recent thought has been getting my hair dyed dark auburn and getting a perm to create beach waves. Is it possible to do both? I have fine hair so will it really damage it? I am only 14 years old so I don't want damaged hair for the rest of my life. Also, I go to a private school and they have rules on hair so I have know it will come out okay. Just some facts that might influence your decision and opinion: I have hazel eyes with specks of gold I have dark eye brows (almost black) I naturally have long eyelashes that are black My skin is pale with a red undertone I have found on some websites that I have cool hues but on other I have warm so if anyone can clear this up please do... Hope you guys can answer! Also if you have questions just leave them as an answer or email and then comeback later because I will answer them you can then answer. If I decide to do both should I get a partial highlight or a full dye? Does it matter which I do or is both gonna dry my hair out so much it doesn't matter? P.S. I would do both procedures professionally and about two weeks apart. My hair is naturally straight but I have got a perm before and it is not the normal perm but a body wave perm

First off, you need to find a salon where you can discuss what you want done. As you've had problems with perms in the past and have thin hair, it would be best to find the most experienced and professional salon you can. I myself was told I could never have platinum blonde hair due to the thinness of my hair, but after shopping around - I found a salon that did it without ruining my hair at all ($180 later...). Dark auburn should be a fine colour for your hair. And getting it permed 2 weeks before/after should be ok. If you're concerned about the potential damage - talk to your hairdresser about aftercare. As a general rule, doubling your usual amount of conditioner is a good start (but only for the first 5 washes or so - your hair should be fine after that). On the topic of highlights - you could get a light/medium brown colour to go with your dark hair. Purple tones tend to look nice with dark hair too, but I don't know whether your school would be against that as it's slightly unnatural.

Always perm before color. But, you cannot perm and highlight. You can perm and COLOR. The problem with doing highlights and having a perm (which sorry, you are unable to do to anyway unless you wanted to be bald) is that as they grow it it is much harder to retouch. You will not only have silly looking roots because of the blonde/dark roots, you will also have curly ends and straight roots. I really suggest to get your hair professionally permed first, wait about 2 weeks and have them do a semi permanent color all one color. I love curly hair, and I love darker colors. You won't be able to do a permanent color over the perm though, just keep that in mind.

well with dye you need to wait for at least 10 minutes. It depends on how dark you want the color to work. For maxium color leave in for 25 minutes. I dont know how long for a perm but at least a day without washing your hair.(it should say on the box how long)

Wikipedia has some useful information about James Edwin Webb: James Edwin Webb (October 7, 1906 – March 27, 1992) was an American government official who served as the second administrator of NASA from February 14, 1961 to October 7, 1968. Webb oversaw NASA from the beginning of the Kennedy administration through the end of the Johnson administration, thus overseeing all the critical first manned launches in the Mercury through Gemini programs, until just before the first manned Apollo flight. He also dealt with the Apollo 1 fire. The planned Earth-orbiting astronomical observatory (launch scheduled for 2014) originally called the Next Generation Space Telescope (NGST) was renamed in 2002 as the James Webb Space Telescope to honor Webb's accomplishments. After the Apollo 1 accident in 1967, Webb told the media, "We've always known that something like this was going to happen sooner or later. ... Who would have thought that the first tragedy would be on the ground?" Webb went to President Johnson and asked that NASA be allowed to handle the accident investigation, and to direct its recovery. He promised to be truthful in assessing blame, and he pledged to assign that to himself and NASA management, as appropriate. The agency set out to discover the details of the tragedy, to correct problems, and to continue progress toward the Apollo 11 lunar landing.
