There's no reason to wait to wash, ever. You can wash whenever you want to after starting. It's only important to wait until they are completely dry to wash them again. Normally, baby locks dry very quickly and can be washed daily for a few months. It's better not to wash daily, though.
Because the crocheting overtightened your hair, I'd recommend washing every 2-3 days.
Try to wash in the morning so they have all day to dry. It's a bad idea to go to sleep while they are still damp. If you notice that they are still a little wet when you're ready for bed, you can hit them with a blow dryer for a minute or 2. Just move the drier around a lot and put it on the cool setting
Welcome. Don't panic. Crocheting did a lot of damage. Yes. But if you leave them alone and eve try to loosen up the crocheted portions, your locks will recover. You can use aloe or jojoba oil to help with this.
How many times did you crochet?
