I've been dealing with my hair for years. It's down to my shoulders, thick, curly, and unruly. I can never seem to win; either I use tons of mousse and conditioner and end up with greasy, spaghetti http://i.imgur.com/uCj6X.jpg?1 hair, or I don't use enough and my hair just becomes dry, with this weird clump of extra dry hair http://i.imgur.com/ARsnq.jpg?1 smacking me in the face the whole day. I only shampoo about once a week, and condition every day. I use mousse and a little conditioner as my leave-in products.

As summer approaches, this battle becomes unwinnable no matter how much product I use, and I am eternally stuck with dry, gross hair. This has been made even worse, as over the winter I decided to dye my hair red, then pink, then blue, and finally back to "brown" (a faint poop green colored, as the blue wouldn't come out). I've been wanting to chop my hair off for a while; I never liked messing with my hair and I believe a pixie cut would be the perfect maintenance for me.

My question is: if I were to get a short cut such as this http://slhairstyles.com/images/2009/...ie-haircut.jpg or this http://midorilei.com/wp-content/uplo...nona-short.jpg, would my hair become weird and wavy/curly or would it be straight? I really really do not want to end up with something like this http://www.marieclaire.com/cm/realbe...15-0809-de.jpg; it looks nice but it's just not my style.
