I have very tightly curled hair and I have heat damage. It's not like I flat iron often, only once a week. I use tresemme heat protectant and I used a tourmaline flat iron but my hair is still being damaged. The heat setting I use is like 360-390. Using lower heat does not get my hair straight. Wearing my hair curly is not an option because I feel ugly when it's curly. I hope some of you girls can help me good tips and advice about this.

The only thing I would suggest is, I know it sucks but you're probably going to have to get a haircut to get rid of the damaged hair. There's no way to reverse it, unfortunately. As for prevention, once a week doesn't seem like it should be that bad for your hair. And you're using a heat protectant as well. I'm surprised because I have friends who straighten their hair almost daily and they don't really get that much damage. I dunno, maybe it's been a while since you last got a cut/trim, so it looks unhealthy?
P.S. Curly hair is beautiful! Try different hairstyles if you want to change it up a bit.0
