good for you! i wore a close to shaved look for a few years before getting tired of having to cut so often to maintain it.
i've since grown that out and have struggled with how to best care for my curls. i'd spend hours washing and styling to get perfect definition and zero frizz. i've since freed myself from that routine.
i wash my hair when i feel like it. styling takes less than 5 min if that long. i don't rinse out conditioner, just squish some gel in, and just go. i don't bother with it again until the next time i decide to wash it. which could be two weeks later. all i do is wake up, shake out my curls and go.
frizz no longer bothers me, i embrace it.
i love what you said, "Curls are magnificent but, sometimes, it's ok to let go of them. "
