Hi Devon, the best way to get the wax out just to be sure is to purchase the Wax B Gone from DreadlockShampoo
It is only $15 and is guaranteed to work, you will feel such a difference....Peace
Welcome to the community fellow Canuck. I suggest to work on getting out the wax even though it is just on the bottom now, after 3 years of growth. On hot day, the wax can get warmed up and slowly creep further up into your dreads. Did you know that wax can hold in pockets of water inside the dread and causing mold and smells to form. It may not have happened to you yet, but it still can. They will even feel lighter to you when the wax is removed.
Your friends are right, they do look awesome and I bet you want to keep them for life. So no more root rubbing, as you are slowly going to damage the root area. The root area needs to be a little loose naturally because dreads still want to move around, dance with the wind etc...if the dreads are tight right up to the scalp, then hairs will be pulled out over time, causing the dreads to thin out, also as the dreads get longer and heavier, you would feel stress and slight discomfort on the scalp area.
Enjoy the site, the groups you can join, and the chat room if you want to chat live with other members.....Peace
Welcome. We just like to help people prevent damage to their locks, and to grow the healthiest, longest lasting locks they can. In order to do that, we inform people about the damages of wax, crocheting, interlocks, palm rolling, etc...
If you want you locks to last another 3 years, I'd recommend stopping everything, and start taking care of them. But it's your hair. If it's only for a style, and you don't want them for life, keep it up, they have a great chance of fallin gout on their own.
welcome u got to remove that wax!
its not just that were against it most of us had tio start over because its evil
Welcome to the community Becky Lee, you came to the right site to get all the healthy information you need to grow happy natural dreadlocks. The Dreaducation page at the top of this site is a good place to start and will answer many question you may have. All you need to do now is wash every 2-3 days, it speeds up the dreading process by causing more knotting and dreads love clean hair. (what are your washing with)? Once your sections have formed, just separate those sections once in awhile so that they do not join together. Guess what, that's it! There is nothing else you need to do to grow natural dreads. Enjoy your journey and have a fun ride.....Peace
