No problem. Here's a video I made a while back about when you need to separate. My locks are more mature, but the concept is the same:
Welcome. How often do you wash them? Most people don't need to separate more than once a week. Doing it too often can sometimes cause progress to slow down, or cause damage.
You only need to separate when the body if the locks start to tangle together. If the roots are tangling, let them. Yu never need to separate all the way to your scalp
