Fellow curly headed girls will tell you-- not everyone can cut curly hair. You cannot cut it like straight hair because it isn't straight hair. If you don't cut curly hair right, you end up with giant Princess Leia-type wads of poofed hair at your ears.
Y'all, it isn't pretty.
Grant you, it took a few days for my hair to get all happy. I had tried a different product, she used different products on my hair than I'm used to and on the third day, all was well. It takes a few days to "chi" (as my sister would say) with new hair anyhow. Call it a learning curve.
It has taken me 4 1/2 years to find someone to deal with the hair mass that God gave to me. Properly cut, it takes a lickety split second to spray some water on it, put curly hair gel into it and go.
I just wanted to share a praise. It is more of a good thing than I can explain. Hooray!
