So just for starters I had my dreads started with Bees Wax the first week of December 2011. Since then I have used a l lot ofknottyboy dread wax (like almost a whole case) as told to by a fellowtraveller. I palm rolled with it very often to get rid of the many loops and bumps I thought I was a "victim" to. Also for the last 3 weeks I have had regular elastic bands wrapped close to my roots to section off all loose hairs into the dread I wanted them in.I took them out yesterday afterreceivingsome information here on the site. My dreads are super hard where the wax/elastics were. I was thinking apple cidervinegar w/ hot soaks after trying to hot iron the wax into the paper towel. Theknottyboy I was given did seem to help with the loops but only if I re-applied often.Its super funny because when I had not used wax for a while the ocean made my dreads soft and flow like it was actually hair. That was the way I pictured them in the first place.
Here are my questions and really just open to hear your thoughts !
What are the best home remedies that you have heard of or tried out yourself to remove all or most of the wax ?
Will my dreads un-lock when the wax comes out, and if so what do I do?
*will upload pictures when I am back InCanada!
