I typically wear my installs for 3-5 months. The longest my weave has lasted was a year.

The longest I've kept a sew in was for 5 months with minimal maintenance... I washed it every other week with a none high volumnizing shampoo and either let air dry or towel dry til it was damp then blow dryed.

Everytime you wash it if possible , I usually deep condition for 20-30 min with a clear shower cap and you can sit under a head dryer or apply a blow dryer to help set the conditioner as well....Tresseme and the Suave Salon collection is good or if you want a higher end product try nairobi or kera care all of those are good as well

I'm wondering how long does everyone's weaves last? And how much you paid?

My installs typically range between 100-150. As for how long it last...I normally keep them in from 9-11 weeks. Anything more than that is too long for my hair. My hair tends to grow about 1 1/2 inch during this time so I couldn't imagine keeping my install longer than 11 weeks. In addition, I have a lot of thick hair. I also wash my hair once a week which could impact how long I keep it up. It also depends on how tight they braid and sew.  I CANNOT take a tight install, for that purpose my installs tend to get a little loose around week 8. 

As for conditioning your hair...I usually use a color bottle (bottle w/ a small tip) and ALWAYS use leave in conditioner on my braids. I have seen tremendous growth and retained my length and thickness.

Yea as long as you condition everytime you wash you'll be fine. Everyone has their own unique routine. I been wearing sew ins for over 2 years but I do give my hair time to rest. I got sew-ins to help grow my hair. Here's a pic of my hair growth in the last two years.
