What should I do to my hair?

Well I have 3b hair... It's thick and I really never liked it since it's been curly No matter what product I use, it still has too much volume (not frizzy, thankfully, but it poofs out to almost my shoulders). I don't like being made fun of because it has so much volume, but when I straighten it (ESPECIALLY in the humidity), it becomes wavy after like half an hour I'm tired of straightening my hair so much, because it takes over an hour... And whenever I straighten it, it flips up -_- No product makes my hair stay straighter, and no product I've tried makes my hair have less volume. Whenever I get layers, my hair (when curly) just has more volume.
I want to get it cut to make it lighter in weight, because it's kinda heavy to me, but a bit past shoulder length is the shortest I want it. It's about halfway down my back at the moment. I want to be able to straighten it easier, and I want it to actually stay straight (but maybe that's a little too much to ask for). I definitely don't want it to take as long to straighten it. But I also want it to look pretty and have less volume when it's curly. Should I get it razored or something? My mom said maybe I could, but she has straight hair, and doesn't really know much about curly hair, so...
Thank you so much!

It may be poofing so much because of damage from the straightening. I concur - try the CG method focusing on moisturizing your hair. Try leaving some conditioner in your hair when you rinse or scrunch in some extra after you rinse. You may be amazed that your hair loves it. If you are accustomed to shampooing you may feel more comfortable with modified CG for a while (that's using a lo poo like Deva Lo Poo) instead of just washing with conditioner.

I agree that your hair sounds beautiful. Thick is good in my opinion - I have to use Rogaine since my hair started thinning.
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high.
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
