just over the past 2 months I have had a lot of breakage and it's hard for styling so should I cut all the straight hair or just leave it until I'm at my desired hair length
I wouldn't cut it all off until your ready, but I would cut off a few inches from the straight ends like a mini chop. When I started transitioning I had so much breakage and then I just decided to cut off 4 inches and the breakage pretty much stopped. Although, the straight hair is very weak and breaks more than healthy hair. Try Pre-Pooing if you haven't already. I put coconut oil all over my hair a few hours before washing and that decreases the amount of breakage on my wash day. Good Luck. But definitely get a good hair cut and cut off quite a bit.
