Hi it's Katie!

So for Christmas, I got this straightener that boasts extra smoothness and silkiness and also says it protects against heat damage. It was from my aunt who didn't know I had heat damage already. (I'm glad it wasn't so obvious) Well I know I shouldn't flat iron for a while but I don't want it to go to waste....and I was just wondering if it would be safe to straighten with a lot of protectant? And I mean A LOT?
