Just quick questions here - I am interested in the benefits of a wool tam for helping along new dreads. I have long hair. One week old dreads... or more like 6 days. So if I get a wool tam, what would be the type, and how often and how should I wear it. Sorry - never wore one before.
Also wondering if I should still invest in Wax B Gone after I have done repeated home removals using vinegar soaks (distilled white vinegar undiluted) and then scrubbing with dish soap? I believe I got almost all of the wax out (I had wax applied one time - knotty boy - and it was left in my hair for 2.5 days before removing it). I know that no person can ever be 100% sure if it is all out. But my hair is completely different and healthy feeling - loose, dry (in a good way), not sticky at all, soft and light feeling... I think I got most of it out. I mean - I got so much out I can't find any more wax.
So those are my questions. I am not able to afford much so I don't know if I can afford both, so I was wondering if I should just focus on going forward now and wearing a tam and letting my dreads start back on track naturally, or if I should still be focusing on more sessions of wax removal even if I can't find anymore? Below is what my dreads look like now - very loose and they feel like my long hair I have had for years - just with some natural separations. Very soft.
