What's up nasty folks? It's time for my 1st weekly update. Been busy week work and working out, so I haven't been on in over a week. I washed my hair/dreads one week ago (Wednesday). The people that I have spoke to on this site including SE, know that I used wax. I'm about 6weeks in now. I havent used wax about three weeks now. I used my own shampoo/wash mix last week. BS, Dr. Bronners, Sea Salt, and warm water. Let my dreads soak for abou 10 mins in the shower and rinsed out everything. Like most I got my hair done with wax, think it was the right thing to do. WRONG. I found this site and woke up. So, why havent I washed out and restarted? I think my hair is locking up just fine. And since I've found this site, I wanna help people and let them know not to use wax! Sorry a little side tracked there. So after I washed last week I saw a lot of wax residue just come out of my hair. AMAZING. I have any where from 6-9 dreads without wax, doing there own thing. I'm doing my weekly wash today and I might post some result pics later on. Sam and SE thought I should make a post for the people that used wax, so thats what I'm doing. I know using the BS mix that I'm using is going to work, like I said the 1st wash had amazing results. My dreads aren't sticky anymore. and smell wonderful.
PS -- For the people who got there hair done in a salon with wax and backcombing.
Most of us (probably all of us) If they told you not to wash your hair for 2 WHOLE MONTHS, you need to WASH WASH WASH. My hair wasn't locking up after 2 weeks! So i washed and they started tightening up! Your hair needs to be dry and clean to lock up. After 2 weeks my baby dreads were oily and falling apart. Thats why i started to wash and do more research. Thats when I found this site. Thanks SE. You gave me some great tips. I will try to update as much as I can. Working on washing ALL of this wax out, one dread at a time. Also I stopped palm rolling. Dreads are natural. Let them be frizzy. Don't worry what other people think about your frizzy hair. If you want to have pretty/styling dreads, by some beads to deco! I did! I bought a Bob Marley bead, and waiting for my second handmade bead to come in the mail. Plus I heard they help with locking.
Well have a great dreadful day guys&gals! I'm off to eat and wash.
