If your are only trimming, then you can do it yourself. I've heard of twisting or braiding small sections of hair and inspecting the pieces that stick out along the twist/braid. These are most likely split, damaged.
If you are getting a cut, then you should find a curly-hair professional. I don't much about the area but these salons have good reviews from curlies.

If you have a layered cut, you can cut or trim with the ponytail method. Two steps:
1. Make ponytail at nape of neck. Cut off end in one straight line.
2. Make ponytail on crown of head (don't worry if some of your hair doesn't reach the ponytail holder). Hold ends straight up and cut off in one straight line.
It's actually pretty idiot-proof. If you're just looking to trim a little bit, put another ponytail band on and then slide down to one inch or so from ends, then cut at the second ponytail holder. Easy-peasy.
Type 2c: coarse, high-density, low porosity (so it would seem)
