african salon caucasian hair wax twists/comb coils disaster


salon and loctician dreads recovery

I washed several times, and used dawn. Still seems a lil matty, and oily. I washed 5 times! should I let it dry, then wash again? Maybe wait a day before TnR? If theres a lil residue will it be alright?

Could I back comb what she has done, then wash immediately after getting the wax out?

Really I can understand mold and rotting to the best of my knowledge, and the whole wax thing being bad. Although it seems a lot of people tried the wax method with some success, even if they went natural after. Even some success stories you've replied to, and complimented them after they went Natural. So Im going to do it. Not go back to the Salon, and go Natural. But to Not even wait a Mere 2 Weeks, could it really be that bad? Some of these other people have waxed for over 2 months or more then go Natural. How can 2 weeks, then wash hope a few twists stay, and then go natural really hurt?

Well thanks guys for all your help. I wish I could say I felt better....I do a little bit though, I wont be returning for a new twist at the Salon. I do want to keep it as is though, and wash it in two weeks. I think thats what Im going to do, then go naturally from there. Use my hat, and try to form them my self. I know I wont be getting a refund, so that Ill just have to chalk up. I know you guys wernt being too harsh, I guess I just wanted a little hope that maybe it would help just a wee bit......even if you don't agree with wax but I guess not, Thanks again. Ill repost with some updates.

I know that everybody's trying to help. I guess Im real discouraged. Especially when Im told you basically got scammed. Maybe because it works on Nappier hair she didnt know. I dont know! Uggggh. Dont think Ill be getting a refund. I posted some pics on my wall Soaring Eagle and you can check them out. See if she did TNR. I think it wasnt just a simple twist, or as it seemed. She pulled pretty good, and seemed to be twisting with some kind of technique with a comb. I feel terrible now. Whatever, chalk it up I guess..........Thanks people....

So what if I wash it out in two weeks and leave it as is for now. Will that be fine? Its gotta help a little bit, if I leave it as is, then wash the Wax out. A ton of people have started with Wax, I want to stick it out at least for the first two weeks. She said if I went back, she would use a dry shampoo and get my twists 100% clean. Right now Im feeling I wont be returning, but I just want to stick with my current state, it seems like it may help a tad. Maybe Its just mental masturbation, like Im hoping for a 3rd party to come out and be a voice for the 99%, which will probably never happen. I guess Im at a loss, I just thought maybe it could still help the process.

So essentially I can go with this method.....Seeing how I paid for it, I kinda want to go for the gusto. Ill deal with the pain of taking out the wax. Its not much wax anyway. So maybe I should leave it as is, and not add any more wax? Im just wondering where I should go from here? Should I just leave my hair alone, no washing and try to keep it up myself? Is keeping it in a hat OK? If you did what I did, how would you proceed from here, rather than Wash it all out. Wow, Im feeling pretty discouraged. Is there any feeling of " Well it is possible to go from where your at, just try this....... " ?

It's not that you can't go from where you are at. The problem is that the wax removal method is kind of intense on your hair. If you go that way, it'll probably just take them out anyway. Plus it's not pleasant and can take months to get all the wax out. It deals with really hot water and dish soap and submerging your locks in them for a few minutes at a time. The first go around wont get it all out, so you'll have to do it over and over again. By the time all the wax is out, if your locks are that young, they probably come out all the way anyway. I'm just trying to save you the discomfort of all of that.

I've got nothing against TnR. I did it to a few of my locks. It works fine. I meant to say to TnR them again, but leave them alone afterwards. Sorry if It sounded like I meant to just neglect them
