Flippacious, I just had to say that we are coming from almost the same hair timeline,except I had mine cut a little earlier, in like June and started cg again in dec, and we have similar properties. So I have this same question.
Here's mine after haircut and now:
I really want to get mine cut now but have the same concerns. I think that well placed layers could help the sections that bother you. But I haven't had mine cut curly yet so that's just opinion, I have nothing to back it up lol. When you do get it cut, if you do, let us see pictures!
