How long approximately do you want to wait with baby locks before washing them for the first time? I have thick curly hair and it backcombed up very nicely, didn't really hurt at all. I am curious if washing before the 1st week is up is too soon? I know some people suggest a few times a week, but is that for more mature dreads/baby or both?

wash when u feel like washing ..washing helps dreads dont ever listen to ppl that tell u not to wash dreads for long periods of time
3 days 5 days whatever..just when u feel u should
Thanks SE. I'm definitely going to wash often, not sure why people think not washing is a good idea. Just wanted to see if there was such a thing as washing them too soon... i was think about on the 3 day, of course that depends on if I feel they need it or not.

Thanks SE, always great advice! What would I do without this site?! (Probably be scammed)

id ..go 1 day beyond when they feel dirty but no more
That actually gives me a much better idea of when is a good time. I really just didn't want to wait a full week. I'm use to washing my hair daily, which I figure is just too much for my baby locks.
its best to get used to wassh9ng less then daily so 1 say longer then u think u should stretches that out alittle
but when u get to a point like around weekly u may find u want to twice a week just to be cleaner you'll find your best schedule by pushing it back then settling in where comfy
Thanks SE, can't wait to do my first wash with that baking soda recipe and then do the acv rinse!
u may wannaskip the acv 1st time if u get real itchy use it 2nd time
