Can you wash your hair the night before Japanese straightening?

Does it matter? I found a thread on Japanese straightening where someone mentioned you shouldn't wash your hair for 2 - 3 days before the treatment to reduce potential damage to your scalp, but I haven't found anyone else advising against it. Does anyone know if it's okay? I'd really like to wash my hair tonight before I go because it's super oily but if that's not wise I won't lol

    No because if you do the chemicals they use can damage your hair, you cant wash the day before the treatment but the day before the day before the treatment only. But after the treatment your suppose to not wash it for five days at least.
