I guess it depends how long your hair is and the texture. I have hair that is just above my mid-back and tangling isn't really an issue for me. In fact, I don't really ever brush my hair because I don't get knots and it's naturally very straight(though I know I should simply to disperse natural oils I never remember to buy a brush).
As for braiding, I'm mixed. I braid my hair a lot to give it texture and curl, but I have found that this caused breakages (I braid my hair when wet otherwise it wouldn't curl) and if you braid it tight, it can create issues along your roots. But obviously not everyone has this experience.
I'm in the bandwagon of washing your hair less often. Again, depends on your hair type but if you get by without washing it for a couple days, then go for it.
My best product advice would be Moroccan hair oil. That's the brand name and it's been so nice for tangling flyaways caused by braiding and giving a bit of shine and moisture to my tips.
