i'm growing out some bad thinning that was done to my hair a few months ago and it's HORRIBLE. lots of little whispies, curls that won't clump nicely, and just not nice. it's just like banjo said, curly hair LOOKS thicker. if you want to lighten the load? put some layers in. that makes a bigger difference.
i've actually decided to just cut my own hair from now on. i did a fine job cutting some layers in. otherwise, i just spot check and trim up curls here and there as they need them. i just need to get these stupid thinned sections grown out.....guh. it'll take forever!
