Ok This is what I did, I deep conditioned with olive oil and rosemary, then left that on till the next morning and wahed it out and used a protein treatment with the coco milk and washed that out with my Beautiful curls leave in conditioner, because it acts as a shampoo with a little moisture, but it acts more of shampoo to my hair! Then I put that in my head along with alaffia leave in conditioner and Jojoba oil for a little bit more moisture and then stretch my hair out with braids! Then the next morning I decided to take my hair down using grapeseed oil which is a good heat protectant and detangling with a wide tooth comb first and then I tried using the comb chase method with the fine tooth comb, but when it came down to my ends it will not go through and I detangle it very well, first using the finger comb and then the wide tooth comb, but it would not detangle with the fine tooth comb going down, it almost broke it lol! To tell you the truth! So I decided not to use that and just go ahead and detangle and flat iron and my ends still came out frizzy and I felt little hairs coming from the ends, so I decided to trim them, and I had already trim them the first time at the end of December! So I trim them again this time around, because of the little hairs from flat ironing and put water and conditioner in my hair to keep the moisture and yes it is reverting back! SO ladies what is I am doing wrong when I flat iron? I was doing everything in the right decent way!

Wow! Shampooing and conditioning is good! My suggestion would be not to use so many products in your hair within a short period of time. I think what happened was all the combing and detangling stressed your hair and broke some of it off around the ends, along with the hair products. Also, it's not really a good idea to leave a conditioner in your hair (unless it's a leave-in) overnight. You could over-condition your hair, which will weaken it, and you'll get those frizzy ends. Another thing is washing it too much. If you wash your hair too much it will dry your hair out.
I also have curly/kinky natural hair. What works for me is to wash and condition (leaving on for 7 minutes)with Pantene for colored women. Rinse the conditioner out with COLD water to retain moisture. I let it air dry if I'm not going anywhere. If I am I blow dry it with the setting on cold until my hair is slightly damp. Then I let it air dry the rest of the way. When I go to flat iron or curl my hair I use Olive Oil Heat Protectant only. This works well for me. :)0
