Default Get Out Your Scissors...

It's okay to scissor off the crinkly-crunchy part of the frond.

Default Thats not freeze damage

that's not freeze damage, it dieing. It is in shock because it is not used to being an inside tree. It is not used to being in a "heated' environment which dries out the air and is underlying and realistically still cold. Keep it in a warm and bright location, don't over water, prune off the dead parts (brown/brittle = dead, turning brown and still soft is not dead yet). hopefully it will pull through the winter but few make it. I had a Coconut for about 7+ years indoors and it was constantly a battle. Ever winter I went through this, and then one year I left it out for one cold night (trying to delay it from coming inside) and it was gone. Good luck, its possible to have this tree, but it takes daily attention.
