Lost and Confused

Hey there ladies and gentlemen, I have a bit of a problem with my hair. Its at an awkward point in its growth, in which it's harder to be tamed and strands stick out every which way (unless I pat it down for a bit, lol). I have been trying hide the little strays by tucking them under other curls or just curling them with my finger,which does work until a small gust of wind comes by.

Basically I have no idea what I should do with it at this point. Like should I thin it down, trim it a bit, get a new style going, or just cut it all off(last resort). Since i'm a guy cutting it all of wouldn't be that bad. I keep products to a minimum and leave it natural 80% of the time.

Since this is the longest (10.5in) my hair has been since before I can remember, I would like to keep it for a bit longer if possible.

Any suggestions and or tips?

    Welcome, Jun! I'm not going to be of much help to you as our hair is very different. Regardless, we've all been through those awkward stages of growth. I find curly hair much easier to deal with when I keep it shaped up. Even when I'm going for length, I need trims to keep the layers and shape in place.
