if he needs to tidy up he should try using pure aloe to tame the frizz. wax wont help him look neat they will just look like greasy sticks that collect dirt and lint and pet hair. Even some type of gel would be better then wax. Hope it all works out! Many Blessings

its not so much the BC thats the issue, its the wax. 1 application will stay in the hair even with regular washing years later. They prevent the hair from moving and knotting to make real dreads, right now he just has waxy look-a-likes. There is entire sections dedicated to info on why its bad and how to remove wax, so i suggest getting that stuff out first

Most of my dreads were back combed. There is nothing wrong with it as long as it is done gently. It will cause some damage, but if done gently it is only mild damage. Now wax on the other hand is bad. This site is dedicated to the big no wax policy. You won't get pro wax advice here. I am sorry. It is like a child wanting to put a fork in an electrical outlet. You don't give the child instructions on how to do it. You stop the child from doing it because you know it is harmful.

Same thing with wax....even a little is bad. Don't use any wax. Research wax on this site. There are horror stories! and it is just gross. I put some on my finger once...it felt nasty. Can't even imagine how nasty it would feel in my hair.

Back combing is fine, but the best thing to do would have been not to use wax at all. There is no point. It just holds your hair in place, making it look locked up when in fact it's just hindering the process.

Haven't you read the dozens of stories on here with the titles like "No wax, not even once" etc.? The methods of making dreads is always being debated as to which one is safer, or better or whatever...but I think the general consensus across the board is that wax is just awful and useless.

I guess a "better alternative" would be pure aloe, but that's not for like every day use and I never really tried it. No one iscriticizingyou, it's just that wax is a terrible substance to put in hair, and you asked for help. Sorry for the negativity. good luck getting it out!
