As a natural, I would love to hear more from the naturals, but anyone for that matter. Smile Anyways,  I just want to open up discussion about whether or not you all are successfully keeping your leave outs and edges healthy (free from heat damage, breakage, patches, etc).  And if so lets talk about your tips, favorite products, recommended techniques, etc. I think this is a great refresher topic for all of us weave lovers. 

As for me, although I have never worn a U-part, I think u part wigs (that I can take on and off daily) will be a great way of protecting my edges. Not sure how I'm gonna protect my leave out from heat damage though because I HATEEEEE closures, LOL. They're just not my thing. That's the hard part about being natural, smh.

The texture of hair used is a big part of the upkeep. I love my coarse yaki wig, because I literally don't have to apply any heat on my edges. Roller set and go.

 
I have been on my u-part wig kick for about 3 months now, and I LOVE it. Can't see myself getting another sew in. I deep condition my hair weekly with unfiltered coconut oil, and apply black castor oil to my edges before I shampoo.

Welp I went natural Oct 2012 and lived under sewin after sewin-I did the "Big Chop" in April (literally had 1-2inches of hair just enough to catch and braid so Their was no way I was going to wear my hair out (i've always had lonnggg hair)
This last August I noticed my Edges were looking suspect. It was due to all of the pressure on my perimeter braid! ( I was good at switching my parts to avoid breakage on my leave out)
It was my last sew-in! I have since been making my own u-part/L-part wigs and this method is the TRUTH! I can wash my hair when I want, Greese my scalp when I want! NO pressure on my edges(which look fabulous honey!) My prefered method is the wig clips so I take the wig off everynight and put on my scarf and my hair is doing numbers...I think By the summer time I'll be bra stap length if not further Its been 8mths since the big chop I am already Shoulder length!! 
My leave out is fine! I don't put heat on it everyday and I think swithcing the part works as well as heat protectors but just being able to condition the hair 1-2times a week is a winner......

the single most important step I took was only using textures that match my natural hair.     I don't really have to use much heat at all.   My leave out has grown tremendously.

Well I did used to do u parts however due to months of heat to make it blend my hair started to alter .. Of course I used heat protectants, and I started using keracare wax stick to keep my hair from frizzing up due to humid months. But after the damage I just started using closure to give my hair a serious break. If I was to do it all over I would use weaves more close to my texture like curly hair, and kinky straight which matches my texture when its stretched.
