Greetings, Avi :-)
I started with Karate this year myself (oldest white belt in the dojo)
I wash my hair as soon as possible after excessive sweating. Not because I've noticed any obvious damage to my hair from leaving the sweat in my hair for a couple of hours - i just get dandruff like it's nobody's business if i wait more than an hour to wash my hair after excessive sweating (the dandruff persists for several days even after washing my hair).
You don't need to shampoo though. Just thoroughly rinsing my hair and scalp prevents the dandruff.
As for the rolling... i don't know if your instructor will permit you to wear a skullcap or bandana or something similar but ask them about it. That would be my suggestion. If you guys practice barefoot and roll on the same surface that you are standing on and you are not permitted to cover your head, please invest in a shampoo with anti fungal properties. Don't get Athlete's foot on your scalp :-(
Good luck :-)
