Im hella high maintenence and so is my hair. Proud of it. Everyone's hair is different. Im just glad Ive learned my hair well enough to know how to maintain it and keep it looking good. I do the steps that I notice my hair doesnt do as well if I skip like a dc after a shampoo. If I need 5 steps compared to someone's 3 or 10 steps who cares? I dont judge. Do you.
