Angry My ends are so thin and see through

My ends are so see through. When i flat iron my hair i just get p-off. The top of my hair is thich and luscious but the bottom is thinn. Is there any way I can fix this. If tried bunning for about 3 months and still I have no results.

You mentioned that you flat iron. If so, how often - how high is the temperature setting - do you use heat protectant? Flat ironing can cause heat damage and thinning or breakage. I see your Avatar, do you have a chemical straightener? If so, how often are you retouching and are you just having the new growth retouched. If your thin ends have split ends, you may have to perform a trim or cut.
Moisturize your hair with water, glycerin, olive oil, shea butter, jojoba oil based products and use deep conditioning treatments.
I conditioner wash and clarify with Apple cider vineger/non SLS shampoo - use deep conditioning therapy every 4 to 6 weeks and trim about every 2 to 3 months. I do styles that do not require straightening. Good Luck

As far as I know, there's no remedy for thin ends other than cutting them up to meet the thicker hair growth area (to get a non thin "bottom").

Flat-ironing already processed hair can definitely cause weakening and breakage. But I'd ask, did you always have this issue with thin ends or is it something more recent?

It just started happening.

Okay, if it's recent, then you need to see what you've been doing in the recent past that is different than what you did before to target the cause. What changes?

Did you start bunning after the hair thinned, or is the thinning after the bunning?

Going over what you've done differently to cause hair loss/breakage may catch the culprit, cause the CG method is gentle and should not be causing breakage/loss, so it's something else or a combo of something elses.
