i had a pixie years ago (hair had to be cut off from too much bleaching). it was straight for the most part while short and i used a pomade (american crew at the time, not sure of any CG pomades because i don't use one). it grew out in ringlets and i would use the pomade and it would make the longer hairs curly.

good luck with your big chop if you go for it. it can be really refreshing!
3b ringlets. fine texture. normal everything.
