So I transitioned with braids (extensions). When I took the braids out my hair grew so long I couldn't believe it.

Now that I am fully natural I was thinking of braiding it again. I guess a way to kind of give my hair a break and let it grow without the combing and constant styling. Not to mention I am getting tired of twisting and braiding everyday, and want stress free styling so I can focus on sleeping, eating well, and working out. I also feel like my hair grows faster when braided. (this is probably a myth but I dont know)

Can any of you ladies and gents give me advice on keeping my natural hair healthy underneath the braids? Are there particular styles I should focus on?

Thanks for your help!
4a-4b hair. Not sure yet so I'll just say both!
