My Journey From Waxy Salon Dreads to My NOW Wax-Free Natural Dreads!


salon and loctician dreads recovery

thanks for the help

but i'm not a victim by any means , i'm totally in control

prob won't use wax like i said now prob just gonna let my hair knot up since it's already sectioned

i had 3 month old natural dreads and didn't like them so i took them out and waited a few months and put these in 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" sections

salon and loctician dreads recovery

I bought the supa dupa ultra plus kit which was like around 100 plus i have two bars of knotty boy bar shampoo and some vegan knotty boy shampoo with rosemeary peppermint and tea trea lots of knotty boy sprays to relive itch and knotty boy tea bags for several things

i prob won't use wax now but i'm not spending money on wax removal, in fact i'm not spending any more money for my dreads soon, i've spent 150 on them, i think that's enough for now

thanks and no offense to you but when ppl tell me go natural you'll be fine, i go to their profile to look at their dreads and i see stringly thin loose looking dreads, the way mine look I want someone with tight thick dreads to give me advice

but i must say soaring eagle, your dreads are pretty trill for rill

My Journey From Waxy Salon Dreads to My NOW Wax-Free Natural Dreads!


salon and loctician dreads recovery

thanks bro but I don't need wax remover, i've barely used any wax. i've used wax twice, my hair was backcomed and finished at 5:20 am last mothers day....so they are about 4 days old i don't think there's enough wax to need a wax remover cause i've barely put any in them.

so i've been going by dreadhead's routine, dreadhead hq says to quit using wax by the 3rd month so it doesn't really feel like they're scamming me into using wax for the rest of my life

i did wash my hair really thoughroly last night and put no wax in this morning

i feel like i have so much diff advice coming to me about dreads it's a bit overwhelming

i just want to have dreads but i feel like i'm in some crossfire between wax/no wax products/no products

i just want tightly locked, thick, healthy dreads, with blunted tips

dreadhead's dvd says wax speeds up the locking process in half the time and helps them mature faster

i have like 150 dollars of dread products, wax is just one of them

I've never met anyone directly who's dreads were ruined because of wax it's not like wax is good or bad evil or saint it's just a grey area that helps some ppl form dreads

like i said all of my wax comes out when i wash my hair

Your dreadlocks are looking very good :) how long are you going to let them grow Washing your hair with dish soap prob isn't the best way to get wax out without salon grade clarifying shampoo this wax really won't come out at all without tons of struggle

dude i met a guy who had such awesome, tightly locked dreads i asked him how he did it he said he used small amounts of wax on his dreads kept em on for three days

washed em out and put it back on and did that for 6 weeks to start with he's had his dreads for 5 years and they are super tight and neat and he said all the wax came out

i've put wax in my hair and when i wash with clarifying shampoo it all comes out. i've been told by many ppl not to use wax and when i investigate them further they have never used wax themselves

i'm sure some ppl used bad wax / put way too much on/ didn't wash with clarifying shampoo and have ruined their dreads but my dreads personally are very good

it should be noted that the amount of wax i use per dread is a very very very small amout, about the size of half the area of an eraser head on a pencil.

And another important thing is to use clarifying shampoo bought at a salon supply store that strips out all chemicals and oils and leaves behind no residue. to wash the wax out about every three days

i don't think wax is crucial to having dreads but for ppl who have thin straight hair like me it def helps keep a neater tighter form, For Me At Least

wax is great. wax isn't evil like everyone here seems to think. Just make sure you get wax that has no petroleum jelly and you'll be good.

I use wax and it works wonders and it all washes out every time i wash my hair. I have dread head hq wax and shampoo, i love it.
