Should I thin out my thick hair?

My curly hair is thick, and I have a lot of hair. I have long layers, but it sort of has that triangle-looking shape. I was wondering if thinning out my hair would be helpful in controlling the volume, and after, I was thinking about getting shorter layers - not too short; the shortest one would go down to my lower lip.

Oh, and one more thing. My hair is flat from the top, and it gets curly at the bottom. What can I do to reduce the volume and the bottom and maybe add more volume to the top? Will thinning it out and adding shorter layers help? My mom said it wouldn't work, but I don't know.

I have type 3b hair, if that helps at all.

Please help?
Ugh. I have the same type of hair and situation. I would really like some advice on this situation...So I'll stick around to see if anyone has a response.

3 b/c bsl length ridiculously thick brown curls with blonde highlights

I'm really like my curls but rarely wear my hair fully down as it isn't really styled and tends to go bushy

... really seeking an edgy indie style cut that suits my hair type, but wont make the move till I'm sure its right for me as I have been growing my hair to this point for so long

I'm also wondering why this would be asked on a board of people who are tormented by losing their hair...please explain?
