First Time Wash

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?

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)soaringeagle said:

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 alittlebut 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

For african hair ppl say starter locs to wash after 6 wks, I want to give a newbie the right info so can't she wash when ready, does she have to wait 6 weeks, what is the reason they give anyway waiting that long.
