Question Flatironed with Cocoa Butter

I didn't smell any burning, and I did it on somewhere between 275 and 302 degrees. My hair came out shinier than usual and has lasted a week without any issues. I have even worked out several times and sweated- my roots only reverted a little bit. It feels like the cocoa butter blocked moisture out better than any silicone products I have used before. I have also been using a few drops of Vatika coconut oil and shea butter every night to tie my hair up, but I have always done that. I'm pretty sure its the cocoa butter.

Before I flatironed, I had already blowdried with cool air using KMS Hot Flex creme and some other blowdrying type of mousse (brand is Organix).

The thing that confuses me is I can't find much information on if and whether it would be a bad thing to use it. Has anyone used cocoa butter and know what kind of heat it can withold with hair?

The struggle is real...
I don't always look at products from the "ethnic" haircare isle, but when I do, simple words like "Grow" are intentionally misspelled. Tragic.
