Default Cut it or Stay with it?

Before i decided to transition to natural hair i use to wear weave and i relaxed the top of my head for 5 years straight. I am now 9 months in transition and i have about 4 inches of new growth . I really want to cut the relaxed ends off cause it looks so bad. So please your input is gladly appreciated!

Congrats on making the transition! Some of your ends do look curly. Do whatever will make you like your hair the most. If it gets uneven from cutting ends off (mine always is because I'm always snipping split ends and lopping off pieces when I don't like the way it's curling), you can always get it evened out at a later date.

seems like you only relaxed a portion of your hair. If you just cut that section are you going to end up with a curly mullet? if you do decide to cut, you'd have to cut the rest so it looks somewhat even. Maybe do twists and rock twists out in the section so the ends can kinda match the rest of your hair?

yeah the way i am transitioning is really compicated... the top of my hair was relaxed but now its curly roots and straight ends on top. if i cut the ends i will have shorter pieces on top of my head. i was wondering if a stylist could cut my hair into layers while cutting the ends off too? i dont know its been 8-9 months and i want these ends to go away
