Can I use as much heat as I want on my relaxed ends?
 
I plan to flat iron my hair soon and I want to straighten and then curl my relaxed ends with a curling iron. Is it ok to do that if I only curl my ends and not my roots.

I heard once that flat ironing damage can "travel" up to your new growth...e.g. split ends will keep traveling up if you don't cut them. So I'd advise you not to flat iron your ends excessively. Also, I think transitioning is a good time to start practicing healthy hair habits for ALL of your hair -- so minimal heat is optimal. Good luck!

Leaving the heat now, will help you not use it when you are fully natural. Start practicing now. Transitioning is also a time to practice curly styles. Since you want it to be curly, try doing a flat twist out (or a regular twist out). You won't have to use heat to flatten and then curl, you will just have curls!

I've tried flat twists and they never workout. I always end up wearing my hair in an updo when I do a flat-twistout.

I think its fine as long as you are not doing it daily and have a good heat protectant. although you may not need to use heat at all. You can straighten your hair and put pin curls or rollers over night to achive a curly look. if you hair is hard to curl after it has been straightened, spritz a little water and roll on a satin roller.
