What is your hair texture? and are you doing the natural method? I have very kinky hair with no existent curl pattern and i am doing the loose two strand twist and neglect method. this allowed me to wash my hair anytime i want.. actually i began washing my hair about 2 days afterwards. and ive been washing twice a week since then. its been almost one month (will be in a few days) and i am already budding and locking with some locs. i use besan (chick pea flour ) to wash my hair. you can check out my post in the dreadlock products section in the forum about how i use besan to wash my hair.i hope this helps
Follow the bs with acv and look into adding essential oils to help with itchy scalp and stuff.
If you go to the dreaducation pages there is info on mixing the bs as well as some other washing options.
Be prepared for the TnR to come loose or completely unraveled (this is perfectly fine and they will fix themselves.)
When they come loose, do not reTnR them. TnR and back combing are only methods to start sectioning your hair. If you redo it, then you will be set back to day 1. It might feel like backwards progress for them to come undone, but it is a natural step forward for them to start tangling and knotting
