I live in Phoenix. So, a visit to LA is not completely out of the question. I'm just not liking the way my hair is growing out and am having tons of problems getting 2nd and 3rd day hair with Deva products/ CG method. My hair is feeling too bulky/ pyramid like while it's growing out, which is why I was considering the Ouidad cut. I think it's at least worth going for a consult with the stylist.
