Hair Question for African American Hair

For those of your with short hair (i.e.: Melinda Williams-Bird from Soul food to Rhianna's Umbrella Cut)

How do you care for it? Short hair seems like it is high maintenance.

What do you do between relaxing?

My DH wants me to get a short do but I am not one of those faithful salon girls. I go only when I cant get a comb through the new growth lol.

Do you know of any (free) websites that will show me short hair styles for relaxed "sista" hair?
