OK so I have attempted to wash some of my dreads and tried a couple of different techniques to remove the dread wax that I ignorantly put into my hair and I need help trying to figure out whether or not I got it all out. Not ever having dreads before I am unsure what they are suppose to feel like or look like or how they are suppose to move. All I know is that i was concerned about having put wax into my hair and was immediately freaked out. They may not have not even been that bad but I'm not sure so really i just need to know how do I know if I got all my wax out and how are my dreads suppose to feel and move when they are wax free. Thanks!!!

they should be soft and flexible when mature form but spongy

did u use a hair dryer to melt in the wax? if so then theres most likely no waty only a few washes got it out if u didnt mewlt it in and it was mostly on the surface then u may get lucky

I never used a hair dryer to melt it in I would just apply a little but then palm roll and I only did it half a dozen times at the most. The dreads that I did definitely feel better after I washed them and they don't feel as solid my only concern is that when they move they don't really bend they just kind move as a solid piece but that may be because there is not a lot of weight to them due to the length which really only about 10-12 inches at the longest. I feel comfortable that I am getting most of the wax out I am probably just overreacting I just want to make sure that once they are clean they are formed like they're suppose to. Maybe I'm just paranoid but I feel like I'm doing something wrong or they aren't clean like I feel they are.

hmm stiffness is a sign of wax so i would definately keep doing more removal ..rule of thumb if u think u got it all..u probly didnt so keep removing more after several more removals u will think u got it all..again..do at least as many removals as u did between the 2 times u thought u got it all..if therers no change at all u can stiop if it still changes double the number between the 1st and 3rd....it can trick u into thinking its gone over and over
