Any Tips for a Relaxed Newbie?

Before I start, I should mention that I'm still fairly young (16 to be exact) so don't judge me too harshly :D

In January, I finally had enough of my mom choosing everything for me since everything she wanted I either didn't like the look of, or caused me too much pain to feel worth it. I chose to have it relaxed as it really helps with the pain and I personally think it looks really nice. My only problem is that she never taught me anything regarding hair care other than "Shampoo and condition it once a week" (I really don't agree with this. I find that my hair looks and feels much better when I condition it multiple times a week). She still has to style it for me, which I hate because I want to be able to grow up. At its longest, my hair reaches my jawline, so there's not too much to worry about yet. I'd like any help you can offer in protective styles I can do myself and with the hair on my head so I can finally get my own routine going and she won't have to baby me anymore. I'd also appreciate any product recommendations since I need to buy more any way. Thanks in advance, ladies!
