i am proud to say that ihave never once taken a pair of straighteners to my hair. not even one wee section. i have never liked the idea of frying my hair and i dont think i'd suit straight hair at all - as it's so fine it'd look a lot smaller with no vollume compared to my curls. i personally think it is very bad for you hair BUT only doing it once with lots of heat protection might not be TOOO bad. but it will cancel out some of the progress you've made with getting your curls in great condition.
