Whooooa I read your blog all the time yo. Good stuff Congratulations!

Unfortunately I have no idea either, but I really want to see what people say because I always figured that they wouldn't work the same for kinkier hair textures. I could be wrong, I probably am since everyone's head is different, but I've always been pretty wary of anything involving scissors.
Thank you! The only styling pictures I've actually seen were wash and gos and straight so I'm really curious about twist outs and braid outs because those are my go-to styles.

I got a Deva cut by a trained stylist about a year ago when I was doing washNgo's most of the time. Well I have about four different textures throughout my head.

Each time I washed and allowed it to air dry the style never really looked the same because of the texture differences some curls hang lower or shrank up differently depending on whether I used a denman, teezer, finger combed etc.

Understand that if you have the same texture throughout, your hair will be somewhat even or will have a decent shape/cut when stretched after your Deva cut however if you have many different textures like me...when stretched or blown straight you will notice different lengths.

It's been over eight months since my last Deva cut and I was pondering whether to just have it blow dried, flat ironed, and cut while perfectly straight like I used to do.

If you're a washNgo person a Deva cut may be ideal because the Deva cut caters to the shape you want after doing a washNgo however if you like wearing stretched styles it may be better to have your hair cut and shaped after it has been straightened.

HTH
I don't have the same texture throwout, but it's pretty uniform across my entire head with only slight differences. The one thing I noticed when I had my hair cut straight is it never fell in a way I liked in wash and gos or stretched style (the layers always end up super choppy). Have you ever had that problem when your hair was cut straight?
