true, hair smolders when lit. Wax acts likeparaffin. It's like the stuff used to heat serving dishes. It burns hot and long. Who wants that in their hair. Plus, I'm sure most of us like to hang out around bon fires. Why take the chance.
I've posted my story all over this site to help people know the dangers of wax. Long story short, I went to a salon to get mine done the first time. I had the sides of my head shaved because I used to have a mohawk and though it would look really cool to have locks just on the top of my head. They twisted them and coated them with wax. I was told to use bees wax 2 times a week and not wash them for 2 months or so. I did what I was told, cause I didn't know any better. I figure when I washed, the wax would come out anyway. After the 2 months, the wax did come out. The only problem was that it took out around 60% of my hair with it. The only way I can explain it is like my hair just melted right off my scalp. There was no damage to my scalp, but my hair must have rotted inside the wax so much that it justdisintegrated. I had to shave my head bald and start completely from scratch.
I swore I'd never use wax again. did get sucked into the DHHQ thing with their idea of a dreadlock shampoo. I used it twice, and it felt oily and slick afterwards. Why should dreadlock shampoo feel like a conditioner?
Went all natural after that
