Nooooo.... Do not cut your length. Lol

I agree w the other responders.

1). Long layers
2). Lighter products. Less leave in conditioners more gels
3). Plopping to get height at crown
4). Shampoo (very mild I use aveda be curly tiny amount) ONLY crown w conditioning from 2to3inch from roots to ends.
5) diffuse upside down.
6) pineapple at night.

Order of above. 1,4,2,3,5,6.

My curly expert hairdresser trained in NYC by devashan, asked me how I achieved height at crown.

Let us know what works.
