Hello ladies,

Last night I tried doing a flat iron on my hair and the ends of my relaxed hair were so dry and brittle afterwards. My hair is usually like that after I straighten it. The ends of my hair are also very weak despite twice a month protein treatments. My new growth has a softer texture and it's way stronger than my relaxed ends. I assume it's best if I stay away from heat all together. Has anyone experienced this?
