Wax is evil......what to expect when I de-wax?


General Questions

Some were natural dreads, some were t/r method, and I started using the wax AFTER they were already pretty much dreaded. They've still matured quite a bit, went thru the shrinkage, and have aaalllllll kinds of fun bumps and loops and zigzags and stuff. :) Thanx so much for your response! Peace!

Wax is evil......what to expect when I de-wax?


General Questions

hey all! So, I'm 8 months in, and yes, I used wax not knowing it's pure evil. My hair was already pretty much dreaded when I started using it, but it still seeped in, and it's not pretty. I'm getting Wax B Gone thursday when i get paid, and I'm curious as to what I should expect after getting this crap OUT of my dreads. Some are so tight that my scalp always hurts, will they loosen up after it's gone? Will my ends dread finally? Will they be soft? Is it too late? So worried, I want them to be healthy and awesome........anyone have experience with this? Please tell me they'll be saved and beautiful! :/

Saved dreads by using Wax B Gone??


Introduce Yourself

I'd like to hear stories about people who have used Wax B Gone and was able to rescue their babies with it! Here's why: I started my journey 8 months ago. Some of them are natural, some I used the twist/rip method to make. AFTER I had all of my hair where I wanted it, I was talked into using wax. (I know, I know, I should be slapped) It was against my better judgement, but I did it anyway. I thought that because I didn't use it to make my hair dread, it would easily wash out, not seep into the core of them. But it's there. and it's nasty. Since I started doing bs and acv rinses, it's starting to come to the surface a bit, along with all the crap stuck to it.....not to mention, some of my dreads and VERY hard, not soft and squishy like they should be. I'm investing in the Wax b Gone as soon as i get paid next thursday so I can save my babies! I'm not giving up on them, and refuse to try to comb them out! So if anyone has some wax B Gone success stories to share, I'd love to hear them, it would give me some encouragement and hope! love and Light to you all!

Crochet Hook


Dread Maintenance

I would stay far away from crochet hooks, my friend! it's only going to cause damage and hair breakage, which will lead to weak spots in your dreads resulting in them possibly breaking off! The fuzzies will eventually either find their way into surrounding dreads or start new baby ones. Hope this helps!! :)

Tell me about your Dread Decorations?


Introduce Yourself

I have a few skull beads, my tiny silver lucky leaf, a few half thread wraps, and a nice wooden bead. I've done a few full on yarn wraps, but took them out. My hair is still changing too much! :)

Introduce Yourself

Thanx again lady! I posted a few pics of what's goin on with them so far, the day I start the treatment, I'll start posting pics of before, during, and after. Hopefully, enough people will get it out there that wax is evil, and those companies will start losing money!
