I get what you're saying. At the same time, my point is I shouldn't have to pay more for something I can't control. I have thick curly hair too. And I do get that it will take more time for a stylist because it isn't a quick snip like someone with straightened hair. But, I think it's BS for curly hair to be looked at as if it something so beyond controlled that I have to pay more for it. Like I said, I see what you're saying, but I am trying to look at the bigger picture of us curly girls having to go through greater hoops for simple things like a trim.
