Oh, great you tube videos!
I'll give the clips a go! My haircut isn't great...got it cut wet and thinned out by someone before I found this website. He also told me I couldn't have layers with curly hair? Not sure about that one as the top and back of my head seem so flat now.
Anyway, I have found a highly recommended curly hair cutter here in Melbourne so will hopefully start this process with a good cute
The more I read and learn, the more I realise how badly I've been damaging my hair :-\
