    I straighten my hair every 2 days. I have naturally curly hair however will this damage my hair dramatically? I'm starting to get split ends

    Is there a way to reduce this from happening in the future because I'm going to get a hair cut to get rid of split ends.

    curly hair is buff, why straighten?

    use heat-protective spray (Tresemme smells so ****ING GOOD), yes it damages your hair alot seriously it's like 200 degrees of heat on fibres made of protein... what do you think's gonna happen

    apart from that regularly oil your hair to keep it shiny n healthy

    For the long term, argan oil treatments?
    Do you not use heat protector on your hair before straightening?
    You could go into your salon and see what they say to help your hair stop getting split ends.

    Make sure your hair is dry and use some sort of protective lotion.

    I got a raging from my older sister for straightening (my poker straight hair) every day. Apart from it being quite pointless the hairdresser confirmed what she said that it would wreck my hair. Now a bit more savvy - besides wrapped up in a knot nobody was any the wiser. Nowadays I prefer the time it took as precious more minutes zzzzzz😜😂

    It can make your hair lose some of it's curl definition. Just don't use a really high heat setting and try and cut down on the straightening (maybe less hair washing?)
    Also, treatments do not cure broken/damaged hair. The only way to treat damaged hair is to cut it off.

    Too much of anything can be damaging.
    Stop straightening so frequently. There are videos on YouTube that show you how to straighten your hair without heat. If you do straighten, always use heat protectant.
