dont go to any person salons all screw you demand a refund from both

]

let your hair dread itself or use tnr but do it yourself for freee

all you need to dread is a dread sjhampoo and throw your comb in the trash

it will dread itself just like that

After taking my not so dreaded hair out last night it took 5 shampoos with BS and dawn dish soap to get the blankity blank wax out. NEVER again. Wax is for cars, not hair.

Going to clor my hair then do the tear and rip method.Third time should be a charm.

I'll keep you posted.

After doing the TR how long should I wait to shampoo????

you dont have to wait when you feel like it a couple days or so

just be sure to wash with the right stuff in the right way

yea that wax is nasty evil stuff

its really criminal that they still sell it and that salons still use it

id call them demand a refund and tell them if they think wax belongs in dreads they have no right being in business

its awesome stuff

you dont need any gels but if your going to use 1 thats the 1 to use

you only need it if you have very hard to dread hair (like you went a year without a tangle)

the gels special cause after your hands are covered with it from applying it you dont even have to rinse them theres no stickiness no flakiness nothing its like it just vanishes leaving just a scent (if you choose karma scent)

about the scent karma has a slightly strong pine scent (it gets less strong after a bit) its a nice scent but some ppl might not think so

the unscented is ..well unscented

i would never put any other gel in my haoiir

but i had a couple beard sections that just didnt want to dread (always getting pulled apart) i put the gel on 2 times only and it got them dreading

to use

put a dam on the roots

wrap hand round the section slide down making a slight twist motion (not twisting the section tight or even a full turn just dont slide the hand straight down give it a lil 1/2 twist on way down)

SE, my hair is pretty fine and while I haven't gone a year without progress, you said I've had decent progress after 4-5 months (you saw my photos).  I'm wondering if I should try this stuff anyway or just let my hair continue its path?
