How long do I have to wait before washing my locks?

A properly installed set of locks can be washed as soon as they need to be; this can be the next day or even the next week. Whenever the hair needs to be washed, then it should be washed. There is no need to wait a week, a month, six months, or a year for your hair to “lock up” before washing it. While your locks are still maturing, just focus on gently scrubbing the scalp and try to avoid roughly handling the lower shafts of each lock.
