How often can I wash my hair

I know you can wash fairly often, like twice a week... I've been trying to stuck to that. The thing is, I'm around a lot of body fluids at work and sometimes I really want to wash it like every other day. I wear a "lunch lady" type hat (required), but it doesn't really keep anything out it just keeps hair in. I mean my hair isn't getting soaked in blood or anything, but I do get splashed, etc. I use the dreadlock shampoo from this site. Do you think every other day would be ok? Also, my hair starts to get greasy by the second day anyway. I wear a lot of PPE at work too, and it can get really hot and make me sweat. Thanks!

Of course! Washing every other day is perfectly fine. That is how often I wash my baby dreads and how I have done it in the past with no problem.

That'll be fine, some people say the more you wash the quicker they lock. As long as they dry before you go to bed then even washing them everyday would be fine.

Peace.

I wash my dreads every other week or some, i dont keep track(Using the bakingsoda solution wash and the rosemary herb tea with acv rinse)However i wet my hair everyday when i shower. Wetting your hair allowing them to dry naturally (in the wind) helps them lock faster too
