Hello! I ordered wax-be-gone in october and it arrived today (yay!! Sucks that it takes forever to get things from the states, but thats life ). I just tried it out, so here is my review!
Similar to what the other wax-be-gone review says, my container came with a sample of their shampoo - which, by the way, smells AMAZING and I will definitely be ordering some more!!!
The smell of the wax-be-gone reminded me of some orange cleaner that my mom used when I was a kid; not unpleasant though. I got my hair wet and then lathered up - it had the consistency of agave without the sticky and stayed in the hair nicely so there was little drippage or mess. I got every dread and let it sit, then rinsed it out and followed with the shampoo. Immediately after my first try, here are my observations:
1. My hair felt like hair again. I hadn't realized how stiff my dreads were until I used this; they move like hair!
2. They got majorly puffy. Which is fine. They are nice and soft now, and for the most part don't have a hard core to them.
3. Most of my hair stayed knotted (they are 5 months old and were crocheted once. I used wax once a week for the first 2 months and then stopped.). A lot of the hair at the nape of my neck came out and around my temples as well.
Overall I would say from my first try, this stuff works GREAT. I will do it again (I dropped the jar and spilled half of it...slippery hands...oops) but I have enough for another go. Just from one wash, I feel like most of the wax is out, and now I just have to learn to accept my electric shock baby fine frizzies everywhere!
This is a great product and I would highly recommend it.
