is it bad to braid your hair when you get out of the shower, and then sleep with the braids in?
I think the best thing to do is let your hair air dry to at least 50-60% dry before braiding it so you're not tugging on completely wet hair which can damage it.

The first step is to Sleep well, eat well and exercise daily, because a healthy body means healthy hair. Diet and exercise is particularly important for fast hair growth, as poor quality food lacking in vitamins and minerals will take its toll on your hair. Additionally, exercise helps to open and clear the pores of the scalp, helping to free the follicles and promote growth.
Get plenty of vitamins, minerals and protein to help your hair grow fast. Protein is a key part of hair growth, so make sure that you get about 30 grams a day from sources such as eggs, white meat, fish, nuts and green leafy vegetables. While a healthy diet should supply you with all of the vitamins and minerals your body needs, you can boost hair growth by including supplements of B vitamins as well as magnesium and zinc. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for dosage information.
Wash your hair with a mild, perfume free shampoo and a light conditioner. Stimulate your scalp while shampooing, spending a few extra minutes in the shower to massage your scalp and promote hair growth.
Additionally, never wash your hair in hot water or use a blow dryer as these factors can strip your locks of their natural oils, causing excessive split ends and breakage. For fast hair growth, use cold or lukewarm water and towel dry your hair.
Be nice to your hair to promote growth and prevent breakage. Never brush your hair when it is wet, as it is more elastic and prone to breakage.
