    It's good to hear this, because I have had locs for just a little over a week now and so far I've washed about 3 times now. I have no intentions of not washing for the sake of locking faster. I'm addicted to washing my hair. I started my locs by root to tip interlocking because of this fact. It makes it harder for them to unravel.

    Welcome to locdom

    If you feel your locs need washing, then wash them.

    I have comb coils and I wash as often as I like. I'm gentle and don't scrub that may help you. Some say use a stocking cap. I don't and I do just fine. So do what you think is best.

    I found this thread very helpful...I'm three weeks in today and my loctician told me not to wash until I saw him (4 weeks for day started). I couldn't...I wash last weekend which was week 2. Took the advice here an on YouTube and washed with a stocking cap and diluted some Trader Joes nourish spa shampoo. My head felt 100% better.

    Great thread. My baby locs were born on May 27, 2014. I started them via 2 strand twists in a salon. I asked the loctician how soon can I wash, she said "Come back to me in 4-6 weeks". It's only been 2 days and my scalp is itching like crazy. She used Shea Butter mixed with something else. I'll probably wash with diluted Dr. Bronner's (peppermint) and a stocking cap.

    Default Re: Washing Baby Locs?

    I'm so happy to have found this thread. I have dandruff that gets worse when the weather gets cold and waiting 3-4 weeks to see my stylist is too long to go without washing. I will try the stocking cap idea.

    Default Re: Washing Baby Locs?

    With my scalp, not only do I HAVE to wash often, but I MUST be able to have full access to my scalp, so no stocking cap for me. I also have to scrub my scalp with the pads of my fingers, so I have more frizz (honestly I have frizz no matter what I do or what products I use) than I might have if I didn't. This requires that I retwist often, too, but once I am fully locked I probably won't retwist EVERY time I shampoo.
