Welcome. Eagle's right about the twisting. It's very common for people who twist their locks to start to feel the need to retwist over and over again. Really all this does is cause more problems. Healthier locks should not show scalp in between the sections.

Hello Nick! :D Thanks for the add, and hey are dreads were born on the same month. Haha, mine is about a month old now. Well then, happy dreading to you and may the heavens bless you Thanks for the add again!
You can wash anywhere from 1-3 times a week. For baby locks, I recommend washing every other day. As they mature, you can wash once a week.
But really, you can wash whenever you feel like it. If you're itchy, wash. If your hair is dry, wash. If it smells funky, definitely wash
Welcome. Clarifying shampoos are anti residue, not non residue. The difference is that anti residue shampoos strip the oils and gunk that is in your hair, but leave residue of their own. Non residue shampoos don't leave anything behind.
If your scalp gets oily naturally, don't use the ACV for a little while. oily hair means your scalp is too acidic. ACV will only make it more acidic, therefore making it more oily. Once it stops being oily for a long period of time, you can slowly introduce the ACV into the wash
Welcome to the community. You can use BS/ACV at any stage. You can easily mix your own sea salt water at home, if it is any hassle getting to the beaches. Either way, I would use the salt water separately to the BS mix. Let the salt water sit in your hair for an hour or so and the do the rinses.
Always, Hippie Love
Welcome to the site!! Just an fyi, the bs/acv wash is perfect for baby dreads, much better than the clarifying shampoo you're using. Go for it! Looking forward to watching your dreading journey! (We started about the same time!)
