if a stylist thins your hair....

do you need to grow the whole thing out to totally fix it or is there some other way.? my hair is very bulky so I said I wanted long layers to help so its not so thick. next thing I know from about my ears down she would hold up hair and cut "into" it,can't really explain it...and I'd see a clump of hair fall down. did that several times..i was speechless & of course am now kicking myself for not telling her to stop immediately. my hair feels more fuzzy/frizzy now. I probably already know(denial)that I will have to grow it out from my ears down to get rid of that part but thought someone might have an idea? any stylist that has ever tried to "debulk" my hair ends up making it more fuzzy/frizzy.each one,granted has a different way of doing it but...
Pre-CG, back in November, my stylist used thinning sheers on my hair. I didn't notice any extra frizz, but I was used to having some level of frizz. Even though I wasn't CG, I didn't straighten my hair (had been over a year at the very least), and I always diffused my hair. Went CG in January and have diffused maybe six times since then; I usually air dry, even in the cold Denver winters.

Got a Ouidad cut in January and liked that, except the price was vey high. I am trying to grow the layers out because six months into full on CG, I realized I can probably have my hair all one length and not have the dreaded triangle head effect. I got a trim in May by the stylist who thinned it out back in November. Told her I wanted to grow out the layers and length and not to thin it out. We did just that, but for a few days after she trimmed my hair, my hair was uber meh: frizz and limp curls. Upped my protein and it seems to have settled back to "normal."

So, give it a few days. For the most part, my hair goes into shock after it gets a trim.

HTH
Thanks! feeling a little better I will just relax and see how it is in a few days.
Long layers will only help the end section be less bulky not the whole head, in fact it could make the finished look larger/ rounder instead of triangular because the weight has been taken off. Maybe you are not understanding what is possible or communicating your expectations effectively? There are some useful videos on YouTube about cutting curly hair.

Long layers and thinning are very different...but from what I'm understanding, she did the long layers (or some long layers) so far up that it was basically debulking/thinning?

I don't know if you've already seen this thread but it might be very helpful for your next cut: What Should I Tell My Stylist?

See if your cut settles... otherwise I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the only way to fix a thinned-out cut is to do a big chop to even it out, or just wait for it to grow out.

I'm still growing out a thinning-shear haircut from 9 months ago.

The thing about thinning is that often stylists who aren't curly hair knowledgeable will take the side of the scissors and razor down a section of hair. That is what creates a lot of frizz and uneven curls.

The Quidad "Carve & Slice" method is where the stylist cuts into the hair to remove bulk. They don't razor the hair and it seems to be a much better way of debulking. To me it sounds like this might be what your stylist did.

Also, maybe the frizz is from the products she used?

Hopefully your hair does settle down, but if not I don't think you should cut it more. Shorter curly hair often means more volume/bulk and you might fall in love with the cut it as it grows out.

You said it feels worse, but how does the shape and everything look?
I second the idea of waiting a little while for things to settle. I've had three cuts like that - where the stylist cut into the the hair all the way down - and I have to say that they were some of my best haircuts and didn't create frizz at all. That's not to say that it can't be done poorly and create a frizzy mess. But I think you shouldn't assume it'll be bad - it might be great. i found that those cuts thinned out some of the bulk and also helped to create great spirally curls.
I also agree with Spiralspunk, that I'm not at all sure that long layers work for me.
Don't panic, breathe, and please report back.
Good luck.
Thanks guys, i feel better now I have been worrying with my hair being damage.
Thanks everyone, it IS starting to lay better and not seem any more frizzy or fuzzy than before maybe it was just in cut shock as it had been a while since I had gotten it cut. I also had her put in some highlights for the first time ever so maybe it was acting a little dry/frizzy from that until I had time to really moisturize...plus I started using a new cream leave in about the same time&its protein rich...its like I can use a protein product for ONE day but I had better not do it 2 or 3 days in a row or my hair gets like straw&looks all dry and frizzy.
