come talk to me in chat
welcome wax is pure evil on dreads they wont ever dread right till its removed
and removing its extremely hasrd to do
Cora, you should work on getting that wax out. Wax cause water pockets to be trapped inside the dread which cause smells and mold. Wax makes dreads heavy. Wax prevents dreads from maturing, all it does is keep the hair glued together instead of allowing it to knot and loop and shrink into a mature dread. Read the dreaducation section on wax...it will be a great help to you...Peace
Welcome. Hopefully you didn't use wax. That's the only time palm rolling appears to help. If you used wax, that's a whole different problem. If not, then stop palm rolling. It only does 1 of 2 things. If you don't do it much, or don't do it aggressively, it doesn't create any lasting knots. It only makes your locks look neater for a few hours. but after you wash, or sleep, they go back to how they were before. If you do it enough to see progress, it will severely destroy your roots, makes your locks thinner and weaker, causing them to eventually snap in places, or even at the root. I palm rolled daily for the first 2 weeks, and 7 years later I am still trying to fix the damage
Welcome to the community & the best dreadlocks site on the web. You have had your dreads for 1 1/2 months, how were they done? Palm rolling will only cause long term damage to hair and scalp, you don't need to do this. Was wax used also? Let us know so we can help you better since you want help.
You say they look like tight curls and some are unraveling. Well, dreads take 1-2 years to mature. When the twist & rip method is used, or backcombing, they will loosen. They need to in order for them to loop and shrink, fattening up into the mature dread. Check out the dreaducation section at the top of the site, check out some timelines of other members. For this, use the search bar near the top left of this site, type in key words, like 1 month timeline, or 2 month timeline, you get the idea. You can look up anything with this search bar.
So please give us more info, many on here can help you out and take your worries away. For dreads, you only need to wash them 2-3 times a week, use the proper shampoos, bars or baking soda wash, and keep the sections from joining to each other..That's it...no palm rolling or anything else...they are so easy to grow. We want you to be happy and to have happy dreads.....Peace
