thinned-out hair cuts

are they good for curlies? if you do get your hair thinned out would it give your hair less volume? and if you didn't would your hair be too poofy??

Thanks in advance,

That's an obsolete method. If you hear that term, run. Do not let them touch your hair. What you want are 'long layers'. "Thinning" causes your hair to be shredded, choppy, frizzy, with thin ratty ends.

Agreed. A good stylist should be able to work with the hair you have, whether it's thin or thick, wavy or super curly. Thinning just makes the hair more manageable for them to work with.

If the hair is super-thick and the stylist really knows what they're doing, thinning can sometimes work. But most stylists don't have a clue and you can really wreck your hair by having it thinned by someone who's incompetent.

For most people, getting long layers is a better bet.
If you have it thinned, you'll look like a frayed paintbrush.

(which is the look I am currently sporting!)



Takes forever to grow out, as well.

Something tells me that "thinned out" hair doesn't grow out nicely.

It's not about having what you want, it's about Wanting what you have

absolutely! Long layers!!

I run when I hear long layers, actually. Ask for angled layers, they don't give a horrible stepped effect to your hair as blunt long layers do.
I reckon its the old problem of having a competent stylist who knows curls, preferably your curls if possible. I dont know about you girls, but in my experience, you can ask for long layers, angled layers, or even a simple trim and tidy up, but once you're sat in that chair with the apron round your shoulders, you are at the "stylists" mercy and they will do what they think.

I have yet to have a good haircut at a salon, ever.

NO THINNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i'm growing out some bad thinning that was done to my hair a few months ago and it's HORRIBLE. lots of little whispies, curls that won't clump nicely, and just not nice. it's just like banjo said, curly hair LOOKS thicker. if you want to lighten the load? put some layers in. that makes a bigger difference.

i've actually decided to just cut my own hair from now on. i did a fine job cutting some layers in. otherwise, i just spot check and trim up curls here and there as they need them. i just need to get these stupid thinned sections grown out.....guh. it'll take forever!

I lucked out and found JuJu's salon here in Philly. I heard she was a curly specialist but I didn't know she would cut it dry. When I went in she told me how gorgeous my curls were and asked if it was ok if she cut it dry. I was very pleased!

Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.
That's a great tip: I always ask to have my hair cut dry when seeing a stylist for the first time. You can intervene fast if things aren't going the way you'd like. And she can see how the hair lays.
