I recently back combed my hair about 4 days ago.. i put wax in them about 3 different times. how do i get it out? are my locks doomed? also should i just let them do their own thing until they dread?

3 times in 4 days is way way way alot so your really best off combing it out

dewaxing

and starting ovdr

you dont have to backcomb again yiu can just let it dread itself or use tnr

but wax is oure evil and so hard to remove that it can take months of trying

thats why its really better to start over if your under a month in

since your 4 days only then it will be way easier to just start over right

sorry you found us a few days too late

ahhhh ok so i have no hope?? it took forever to do them and i had to do them myself.. well ok i put wax on all of them when i started them. then i rewaxed half of them one day and rewaxed another half another day.. so maybe itss like twice instead of three times

well the process of removigthe wax is likeky to remove the dreads and if u di]0nt start over it can take weeks to months to get it all out

if u start over its all out and u can just go natural or tnr tnr is easier and faster then backcomb (healythier too)

but naturals eaeven easier still just let it dread itself

byt wax really ruins them prevents any acti[ual dreading it just glues hair together and the wax hardens the dreads stiffen

and every bit of dirt gets f=trapped in them

You know, my first set of dreads (not the ones i have) I backcombed and waxed the crap out of. I had them for 3 months, they looked like disgusting candles, and eventually I got them combed out by a hairdresser and the LINT and nastyness inside them was SHOCKING. This time I used a tiny bit of wax because I didn't realize that all wax was evil, but now I completely understand the error of my ways. Twist and Rip or just let them be!

Yeah I wanna just let them be now.. hopefully the wax I did put was too harmful. I made a commitment by getting them and I intend to keep them. So ima just leave them alone aside from washing them

u cant u got to get the wax out they will never ever ever dread with wax in them

u either have to comb them out and start over or aggressively remove the wax wich can take a hell of alot of effort and time to get it out and never really be sure u got it all

u have to start removing it 1 way or the other right away wether u start over or not u still must remove it

the longer u leave it in the harder it wik be to get out

and using the tiniest bit just once will really mess them up for life if u dint get it a]iut

tnr is gentle enough if yiu dont go natural tnr is the way to go
