Young Dreads and Water

As far as I know, continue washing with shampoo 1 or 2 times a week, 3 if you need it and rinse out after you've been swimming and stuff... by the sounds of it youre washing very regular because of sports or swimming or whatever... after sports I don't think you really need to worry about it in fact I'm sure I read somewhere that sweat can be good for dreads but best look that up before taking it as fact.
I think as a general rule just make sure your dreads are not wet when you sleep, and are dry between washes. Hope that helps a bit good luck with your journey =]
You should try and sync your washing days with your training. If dreads stay wet for too long, and they will be wet on the inside even if they feel dry on the outside (when mature at least), it runs the risk of developing mold. Treat your babies as if they are mature so you are well used to the routine.
