I think foremost, you should play around with the amount you apply to find the perfect balance for you.
Shea butter performs very similar to commercial heat protectants and applying too much of a commercial heat protectant product will also make your hair greasy and weighed down.
Avocado oil also has an extremely high smoke point so you can safely use it up to degrees F making it perfect for heat styling!
How much do you put in your hair?
For moisturizer, I make my own coffee bean oil http:

Since I straighten my hair from the roots, I wouldnt be able to protect it there.
