Heat/deep conditioning

I stopped using any source of heat on my hair around 1 year ago. I deep condition about once a week and do a light protein treatment about once a week as well. I'm trying to see how long I can grow my hair. Is heat still bad to use with your treatments? I've read that it helps your hair absorb the treatments...but all I've read that you should use as little heat as possible!

    Indirect heat that is used with a deep conditioner is actually typically preferred and is not the same as direct heat, such as flat ironing or blow drying.
