  • Ask your stylists how those two chemical processes interact and which one you should do first.

  • No need to do so. At least if you mean by using a flat iron.

    Now if you are talking about chemically straightening it, then yes you need to do it before you highlight as the solution will strip some of the color out. You also really need to wait 2 weeks between chemical treatments.

  • No, it's not going to make a difference. I foil curly hair all the time.
