washing frequency

Is Mon / Wed / Fri too frequent? I washed last Fri and again today. I'm not sure whether "every 2-3 days" means "days not washed" or "every second or third day". I just need a little clarification. Being disabled, bathing is a chore, so I tend only to wash when I've been to physical therapy gym on M/W/F (typically). For the last 9 or 10 months, I've tended to bathe only once or twice a week (no, I don't let myself get smelly), there times max.

Peace

Answering my own question, it sounds as if washing every other day during the week (at the beginning stage at least) will be fine. I am more likely to wash once or twice a week though; my scalp has dramatically decreased its sebum production, so that makes sense to me . . . I would just like some confirmation of this. I know that once I start knotting up and dreads begin to form, I will need to wash less and less frequently to allow them to dry completely and avoid mold.

Can anybody confirm this?

Thanks for confirming it.

The hair on the back of my head is sectioning into what looks like will be nice locs, while the top/front/side are still pretty loose, but I can see where sections are trying to form and it is certainly tangly. I don't want to touch it too much right now so it can do its thing, with the wind, my pillow, etc.

It's only been 5 days but it looks like progress to me! Wish I had a camera other than my cell phone.
