* I bun my hair every day and use protective styles

* No excessive heat. I always air-dry after patting my hair with a towel to prevent myself from dripping everywhere. If I do use a blow-dryer, I have it on the cool setting and I only use my dryer if I'm in a hurry and want to wear my hair down (for once)

* I try to deep condition weekly, but sometimes I go a bit longer cuz what I use is a bit spendy for what I currently make at work

* Sometimes I skip a day or two between co-washes

* Trim as needed, and even then only the damaged stuff. I plan to get trims once every three-four months so I don't lose all of my new growth

* Wrap in a satin cap at night

* I use a wide-toothed comb to detangle after I get out of the shower. I've used my boar-bristle brush a couple times to more evenly spread out the oils I put on my hair. When I comb, I always go from bottom to top, and hold my hair above the spot I'm detangling so I don't tug too much at the roots

* Every once in a while I let my hair down to give it a break from being up all the time
