je ne me suis lavée
je ne me suis pas lavée les(de?) cheveux

these sentences are correct
Always "pas" for negative, and not necessarily "de"

Please check #3: Je ne me suis pas lavée (you, of course, must be feminine)
#4. You got #2, so look at it again. je ne me suis pas lavée les(de?) cheveux = should be "je ne me suis pas lavé les cheveux" = I did not wash my hair. Because hair is the direct object and follows the verb, there is no agreement with the past participle.
To answer your question about "pas de" = you would in an ordinary negative sentence but in this one you are talking about "the hair" and not "some hair." In other words, this is NOT an example of the partitive.
Sra (aka Mme)
