I've kept my hair in braids for the majority of 2011. It is the easiest for me and it helps me to retain length. Plus I do my own braids so its convenient and cheap! As my hair has grown, it has become unbelievably more prone to tangles and knots, which leads to breakage.

In between braid styles, I usually do a couple of deep conditions and try to manipulate my hair as little as possible.

My product list is pretty small:
Suave Daily Clarifying Shampoo (only for when I take out my braids)
Shea Moisture- Moisture Retention Shampoo (for regular washes)
Kemi Oil (for shine and softness)
Shea Butter
Coconut oil
Castor oil (mainly to moisturize ends)

Giovanni Direct Leave-In conditioner
Dr Miracles Tingling Intensive Deep conditioning treatment.
Mix of Castor oil, Coconut oil and Grapeseed oil as a Hot oil treatment

While My hair is in braids, I'll usually use Better Braids braid Spray to moisturize

I didn't take ANY hair pics so here is a round-up of all the random pics that show my hair the best

I grew tired of my hair color so I put a black rinse in it. I loved it and did not experience and damage
