Cutting hair short ? My roomate w/ 3-4A hair was told cut her curly hair short to regrow +manage?

I think treating it or conditioning would be better but she seems concerned to cut off 6-8 inches which were hard to grow ......any thought :)

6-8 inches? What happened? Do you have pictures? 
That doesn't sound right. Shouldn't have to cut that much off unless that 6-8 inches is chemically relaxed.
