You're not ananomaly I have a friend who has 6 year old locks that you can't feel the wax in either. It's because the wax is covered up by hair. It isn't on the surface anymore. Now it's stuck in the core of your locks. And it will be harder to remove because of it. And Beeswax is even harder to remove than DHHQ and KB.

Wax will never wash out in normal washes, so you can be 100% sure it's all there. If you were to cut open a lock, you'd see hair as an outer layer with a gooey sticky core.

If you are serious about removing it, spend a little extra time working the remover deep inside and let it sit for a bit longer

If they are 2 years old, you should never have been able to rip them in half. That is proof in itself that they weren't mature. That is what wax does. You probably could have palm rolled the 2 halves back together and not even known it was separated once.

A mature lock is so intertwined that it would take half a bottle of conditioner, a brush and a few days to separate it. Not one kid in an instant with their bare hands

Still, If you palm rolled at all, it got pushed inside. And just over time, from sleeping and washing and any hats your wore, it got squished deeper and deeper inside
