Heat Damage

I'm having a major problem with heat damage, I like my hair straighten because the natural state of my hair is curly and I get tired of wearing curly hair, so I flat iron it all the time. After I flat iron my hair it gets brittle and it breaks off every time I flat iron it and I just need an explanation to why this is happening. HELP

First off you shouldn't use a lot of heat on your hair because that might be one of the reason why your hair is breaking off, and you should check the temperature on the heated object. Make sure you don't mix any products on your hair before using the heated object. Make sure your hair is not wet make sure it's all the way dry. Make sure you cut and trim your split ends.
