What's the best technique for texturizing/thinning?

Do you use thinning shears?
Do you just slide cut?
Do you point cut?
Do you use a hair razor?

    It's my understanding that those techniques aren't very good for curly hair... at least not for mine.

    Don't do it!

    Texturizing/thinning = frizz
    Layers = good hair

    I speak from experience.

    Curly hair should never have bulk removed by using thinning shears, razoring or slide-cutting...it will only lead to frizz and a lot of damage. I will use point-cutting on occasion if I have a client who wears her curly hair short.

    I am a supporter of the curly cutting methodology in which entire curls are removed in an appropriate pattern to remove bulk and create shape depending on the client's hair texture and wave pattern.

    That's great to know. I have seen many stylists using different techniques to accomplish this. Using texturizing shears on curly hair is a bad thing and will cause more frizz.
