Protein Treatment Recipe Made My Hair Look Texturized

Two days ago I did IAGirl's gelatin protein treatment recipe (version 1.0). I have used the recipe in the past, but this is the first time I've done a protein treatment in over a year. This is also the first time I used heat. I used the recipe and put my hair under my hooded dryer for 10 minutes. When I came out from under the dyer, my hair was completely different. My hair was supremely stretched. It looked like heat damaged/texturized/stretched ot hair, but uniform through out the strand. The S curl of 4a I have at my nape, looked super stretched out type 2 weaves. Like it was 80% stretched out. Also, my hair was supppppppppppppppppper frizzy. I then rinsed it out, applied a moisurizing teatment w/ added oils/butter and then when under my hooded dryer for 20 minutes. It returned to 90% of my hair. I'm going to do another moisture treatment this weekend.

Anyone else have this?

Is it just that the gelatin treatment weighed down my hair?
Is it because of the heat? (never used heat before)

    So my hair had zero elasticity. Now that I did 3 moisturizing treatments my curls are back and nice and springy.
