Welcome. There are plenty of posts here on how to grow healthy locks. Yes, most include what not to do. But there is a reason for that. While the internet is great for sharing info, there is also a LOT of bad info out there about how to grow locks.
We offer a few methods for starting locks, besides the neglect methods. We give tips on how/how often and what to wash with.
As for the"what no to do's". No one tries to say not to do something without backing up why it's bad for locks. There is almost always a VERY detailed explanation or link to a video about why some method doesn't work well.
You're right about needing to find your own method. But it doesn't hurt to take the advice of people who are going through the same process, or who have already gone through it
