Im guilty. I staightened my hair for the first time the other day in over 2 years!! I was very careful to not have excess heat damage and plan on doing a 2 day deep treatment when i wash to recover but with it being so cold and dry i wanted a little change and to see how long my hair was straight.

I think if you blow dried consistently in the winter even just for a few months the damage would build up but if you straighten your hair once or twice, use heart protection and deep t after, it wont be so bad.
