3b Pixie advice?

SSolimnSSolimn Posts: 6Registered Users
I have hair that's a little longer than my shoulders; it's unruly and hard to manage. The photo attached is my hair on one of its good days. It's always frizzy and putting products on it makes it greasy.
I'm seriously considering getting a pixie cut for a change and for something easier.
Will the 3b curls be straight when short or will they just become tighter ringlets? Do you have any advice on mousses/hairsprays/products to use that can make my hair easy to manage when cut short?Has anybody had a successful pixie cut with hair like mine?
I don't want anything that'll turn out to be an afro, or that'll be poofy. When my hair is long the top is rather straight/wavy because it's weighted down: when short, if combed or moussed, will it still curl in ringlets or will they just flick up?
Help much appreciated :)

    I would definitely look at some pixie cuts with your hair type. I'm more 3b/3c and I get more volume the shorter I go. But you may be completely different. Maybe you could try a bob for a week and see how you like it. Then go shorter and shorter. It takes a really long time to grow out a pixie cut. If you end up hating then you're stuck. I would try a pomade from Kinky-Curly or Curls with shorter hair for better definition.
