#1: Cutting my Hair
I have long hair that's high porosity, between 3b and 3c at the ends, between 3a and 3b on my crown and between 3b and 4a all around my edges. Hairline front and back and my temples are this forever coarse, forever dry 3c-4a mess. My curls either shrink and clump in very defined curls (usually when I use a lot of product and don't comb out) or take a fuller, kinkier, frizzier approach when combed out or with less product. Stretched or straightened my hair is around butt length. And, I want to get it cut at least to chin length when curled. However, I really don't have the money to go to a salon and risk getting a bad cut to boot. If I'm gonna do that I might as well not spend more than a few dollars getting hair scissors and doing it myself right? Any help for me?
