Let me first start by saying I've been wearing my hair in a ponytail since FEBRUARY!!!! I have alot if hair (fine strans) wanted layers due to the bulkiness and came out with HELMET HEAD!!!!!! Thinned my hair (crown area) with razor and thinning shears. Was told by 2 other stylists you NEVER use these tools on my type of hair there, is no weight to flatten it down. It still looks like ----! Since February! SOOOOOOOO Scared to have anyone come near my head with a pair of scissors!! 2nd cut here with 2 different stylist and was NOT happy either time--and was not cheap!
