HairFilter - I need a hair cut. I have kinky hair. In NYC, under $250
After perming (chemically straightening to those that don't get the terminology) my hair since I was 9 I chopped off all my hair on my second week of college. Fast forward 5 years and I still don't know how to take care of my naturally curly, kinky hair.
I am extremely distrustful of hairstylists that do nothing but convince me to try the latest get-straight-hair concoctions. For about two years I kept my hair pretty short, but now its long. My hair is enormous, it is thick, kinky, curly, insane and all around a mess. For an example of what my hair sort of looks like see this
but imagine it 3 times the size and far far thicker.
It makes me absolutely miserable. Its so much hair, I don't know what to do with it. I'm not saying this to exaggerate, I've tired out hairdressers who've been in the business all their lives. I never worried much about looks, but the state of my hair is getting to be too much.
Now my question is I need to get a haircut from professionals who understand kinky, afro hair, in NYC. I cannot spend more than $250. And they need to teach me how to care for my natural hair.
