* I stopped wearing hair weaves and learned to love my curly hair

Thats the #1 thing...

Also..
*I realized BRUSHING actually works for my hair
*I started to wash with shampoo more often
*I stopped using gel..
*I started using hairspray instead of gel
*I stopped using hair grease
*I started to keep my ends trimmed
*I finally found a routine that works: Sebastian potion 9, Paul Mitchell hair sculpting lotion, honey, hairspray and air dry..
