Question Some curly questions???

A few questions about curly hair, I'd really appreciate any help.

First of all, I seem to remember seeing somewhere (could have been on this site but not sure) that the longer your hair is the curlier it gets.

Is this true? Does it apply to only certain curl types? My types 3a/3b.

Secondly, is it true that it's better for curly hair to be cut by a hairdresser while the hair is dry? I read this somewhere, again could have been on this site. If it's true, why is it better for your hair and would you need to find a better-trained hairdresser?

I'll edit if I think of more questions! Thanks!

It applies to certain types. 3a curls are big and need more hair to curl. So, many 3as get curlier as they get longer. 3b curls are tighter, have root curl by definition and is curly when shorter.

There is controversy about this. The Deva method is a dry hair cut that was developed for cutting curls. Many of us get traditional wet haircuts and are extremely happy with them. A haircut is dependent on the skill of the stylist--whatever method they use. Personally, I've seen very few Deva cuts that would make me want to go to a Deva trained stylist.
