Can you get a perm after micro braids?

  • No, I wouldn't. Wait and give your hair/scalp time to breathe. They need to recover from the micro braids since I'm sure your hair was pushed/forced together tightly. Perm's aren't healthy for your hair. I'm sure it could take your hair out if done incorrectly or your hair has already been stressed with breathing (micro braids).
