a little reassurance needed


General Questions

So my first post here was the horror of removing dreadwax done by a "professional". After a PAINFUL and SCARY process, I got my hair back to it once was without cutting it off (thankfully).

Afterwards, I've noticed my has changed. In talking with my sister-in-law who is knowledgeable about hair, she commented on how the elasticity was damaged from the process the " professional" had done. My hair was definitely 'whispy' and looked really thin/brittle. It hurt to comb it for a couple weeks (due to scalp damage).

So a couple months later, here I am now. My hair feels A LOT better. But my desire to dread has not left me. If I were to pursue it again, I would do completely natural (wash and separate). But having such a TERRIBLE experience, I'm pretty scared to give it a go again. I know the last method was terrible on its own, but nevertheless, it has scarred me. The decision is ultimately up to me, but I posted looking for some support/reassurance. Not really sure what I'm seeking, but I figured this was a start. Thanks for listening.

salon and loctician dreads recovery

Thanks soaring eagle. I saw your thread about the possible lawsuit. I will add to or help anyway I can. Also with any databases or lists being created.I am going to reach out and try to talk to her first, and then if I don't get anywhere, proceed to go to management (they have a few locations around the area, so maybe that will spark a little interest/concern).Thanks for your response. I look forward to learning from and contributing to this site.

salon and loctician dreads recovery

Hello. I just joined this site and this is my first post. My name is Adam. I started the dreading process almost 2 months ago.Like most who pass through here, I went to a salon and had my dreads installed by a loctician. Normally, I am the type of person that doesn't put stock in a title (professional) and prefer to do my own research and education.Well, I slipped up. I got excited that I finally decided on locking my hair. I knew it was a process, but I wanted to "kick start" and expedite it as much as I could.So I signed on with this lady. Long story short, she used Knotty Boy wax with a backcombed method. Obviously, we all know wax = bad. So after following her directions for almost 2 months and educating myself, I prepared to remove the wax. I used an ACV, Citrus essential oils and hot water soak first. Then I shampooed several times with dish soap and shampoo. Afterwards, I spent a few hours combing out the few knots I had. Then a final shampoo to remove the wax in those knots. Hair is back to straight, no knots, but no wax.I want justice. I don't feel I should have to pay for a professional's service, that wasn't professional. Although highly unlikely in this unjust world, has anyone had experience in being refunded/compensated for this type of nonsense?Also, this person either needs educated or stripped of any loctician title. I fear for other people's hair. From talking with her, she is the type of person that has the mindset, "I'm a professional and you are not", so any info I give will fall on deaf ears.Aside from that, I am going to spend the next several days (or weeks) repairing my hair (and resting my poor scalp. Ouch!) before I journey into the thought of dreads again (it will definitely be natural/neglect method).Although I found this site after already learning about my troubles, I've browsed through and really like this community. I'm glad I joined. Thanks for your help.Adam
