Do I have severe heat damage if my roots are straight but my hair is still coily?

When I straighten my hair, I take a couple of passes at my root with my flat iron, but when I washed my hair I noticed that some of my roots were still straight. I am also transitioning. (I'm a year & 5 months strong). I was wondering if its heat damage, or if its my new growth being weighed down &  stretched out? *NOTE*My hair is like a 4a-4b.

if you're ends are limp and refuse to curl  they are most likely damaged beyond repair. Unfortunately heat and chemical damage can not be reversed youll have to snip those ends eventually. ☆For inspiration and hair tips follow me on instagram @tokesgreen☆
Hmm... ROOTS are straight? That's a tough one. I don't know how long your hair is, so I don't know if it's even possible to weight it down enough to make your roots straight. Try heat-free hairstyles and deep condition your hair regularly to see if they bounce back.
