I have 4a type hair and flat iron once every four months. One time I flat ironed two times in one week and let me tell you my tips were FRIED so I just cut them off. Thank god it was just the tips of my hair but I will never do that again and continue my regular flat ironing once every few months routine. I break from the urge to flat iron by looking at pics of beautiful curls and I immediately snap out of it.
