Get some sea salt from a pet store. Mix a batch so that it's 3.5% salt to water. About 1-2 hours before you wash, spray it on your hair and let it soak. Then wash it off when you wash. This helps your hair lock a bit faster, without damaging it.
Wash 2-3 times a week. But depending on your water hardness, you need to be careful what soap you use. Dr. Bronners and the BS/ACV wash don't work well in hard water.
Don't worry about wearing a tam or anything. Hair locks up so much better when it hangs loose.
I'm sure you know about all of these things, but I figured I'd get some advice.
Oh, and NEVER palm roll. Trust me from experience. It only does 1 of 2 things. If you don't do it much, it doesn't help create any lasting knots. It only makes them look neater for a few hours. If you do it enough to see progress, it will severely damage your roots. I did it, daily, for my first 2 weeks. 6 years later I am still trying to fix the damage.
If you start washing your hair, now, like you already have locks, it will begin to sections itself out for when you want to TnR. From there you can decide how big you want your sections. Over 1 inch sections will be a pain to dry. But if you want super fat locks, I can give you some good tips on ho to dry them well and quickl
