Hair thinning from pulling

I have 3c hair and blow dry/iron every day. I know, not a good thing. For the most part, it's a very easy process. My bangs are the problem, though. Because their short, I have the hardest time trying to smooth them, especially towards the scalp line. Because of this I end up pulling the brush through it over and over (with dryer on) to try and get rid of the "cow licks" if that's what you want to call them. I'm now noticing that the front of my hair is starting to "thin" out. Any product suggestions or recommendations to help straighten the hard parts or to strengthen my hair? The rest of my hair which is past my shoulders, is very easy to straighten because of the length. It's the front (bangs) thats driving me crazy!
protein deep treatments and maybe trying a straightening cream instead of using the brush and iron repeatedly.

crazy hair!
