Washing more frequently okay?

Wash as much as you want as long as you are letting it dry before you go to bed. The more mature your dreads get, the less you'll be able to wash it, so take advantage now. The water & movement will help with knottiness too. Maybe try a shampoo specifically made for dreadies if it's in the budget.
Actually, the more you wash your hair, at least with shampoo, the oilier it gets after a couple days to compensate for washing away the natural oils all the time. With BS/ACV it should be less of a problem, and like others said, you can wash it a few times a week now, especially with short hair, but it'd be good to get your hair used to washing less often. You can try adding a day between washing for a while til you're up to a week or so.
I switched to BS/ACV a couple weeks before I started my journey and at first my hair would get kinda oily after a few days but now I can go at least 4-5 days before I notice my hair change at all.
