Testing is definitely a good idea. Depending on where professional
hairstylists are from you can get different replies as to whether or
not you should henna over a perm. Almost every North American
stylist says don't. Most stylists I've met from Hong Kong say it's
fine. Mine used to tell me it was okay but not to henna shortly
before getting a perm because the perm wouldn't take as well. She
also said to wait at least a week after a perm so as not to weaken it.

I used to henna over perms all the time, but I still think it's a
good idea to test.



: : : Is henna a serious no-no on permed hair?
: : Probably. I've seen frog-butt green streaks from henna over permed
: : hair. Harvest hair from your hairbrush and test henna on that
: before
: : you commit.
: Well, Halloween is coming up but I sure don't want frog-butt green,
: hee hee :) Will try the test and see what happens :)
