Wax is gone!


Saved Dreads Success Stories

The wax has been removed successfully!

My dreads feel much more loose, but I guess that's normal? Some people have said that they look like they're falling out... I've posted a pic. I know they aren't falling out, they're just wax free and more puffy.

I'm happy to have this wax out

BOOM!

Wax Be Gone - 2nd wash


Dread Products

Hey dudes,

So I'm in the process of trying to remove wax... a common thing among noobs here haha

I didnt have my dreads 'started' with wax... So my dreads weren't too waxy to begin with. I bought 'wax be gone' and so far it's been working very nicely. I've used it twice so far, but it still seems that there is wax in the middle of the dread... I'm not completely sure though. I feel them when they're wet, and move them around with my fingers. feels like there is still a 'sliding' feeling. So I assuming that mean it's still in there. However, I'm not sure what it's supposed to feel like otherwise.

Anyways, it's pretty much out... They feel much more dried out. It feels way better having clean dreads... sticky is awful.

What should wax free dreads feel like if you roll them in your fingers? ( as if to feel the middle of your dreads if you know what I mean)

Also, should I leave the wax remover in for a long period of time?

Finally, a hairstyle that fits my hair type!


Introduce Yourself

Hey everyone! - This post is mostly directed to the ladies of this forum... but dudes are defo welcome to comment :)

So, how many of you had the thickest mound of hair, that you didn't know what to do with? Hair that took 3 hours in the salon to cut & colour, hair that was so thick it broke hair elastics, hair that always frizzed no matter how hot you got that flat iron, hair that needed to be thinned out constantly... Annoying hair.

Until you found the only style that fitted our hair type... Lovely luscious Dreadlocks. Now we have elastics that fit in our hair, and we can wrap them around however many times we want, without BREAKING THEM! Yes, they may be head bands... but they work for our nice dreads.

I'm a new dreadie, but I'm loving it. I'm just in the midst of getting the wax out, but after that's done... I'll be good to go and free as a bird.

I'm just wondering how many other people had the same My hair is too effing thick, and annoying", and how many are thankful for their dread locks.

Thank you, Dread gods!

Ok, so just to be clear... Will wax remover destroy my locks that I have in now? or will it just simply wash out in time?

Thank you both for your totally informative, in-depth replies. I will work on getting the wax out. I'm now proceeding to take out the base root strings that were tied into my hair.

Soaring eagle - Did you section your hair before dreading it?

To wax or not to wax... Which method to trust?


Introduce Yourself

Hi everyone, I'm CAnner...

I'm new here, I just had my dreads done 2 weeks ago at a renowned 'dread salon' in toronto. They make dreads all day, everyday. They use the crochet method using a small 1mm hook, and some dread pepper from dread head.They DO NOT use the 'interlocking' method. They just 'rearrange' the hair, and tangle it well. They haven't torn my hair, or ripped it apart... they said that I could brush them out if I wanted to. They feel nice, they definitely don't feel like they're going to fall out. The dread salon also told me to wax them every 2 days... It seems legit because you would think/want to trust what they say because they make them, and have their own as well. If you read on the Dreadhead hq, or knotty boy... they have it all laid out about why the wax isn't bad like people say, and why ppl put down the wax, and that they're probably just over waxing... it seems so believable. I know they want to make money off their product, but is that just it? or are they actually telling the truth? - Then you read here that it's the worst thing you can put in your hair... and it also seems legit because you guys are experienced dreadies as well.

I mean, my dreads look great for a beginner, in my opinion. They are not falling out... they seem well dreaded.

Who to believe?! I want nice, long lasting dreads... I must admit, waxing feels so gross and sticky. Obviously I would rather not wax. If i were to stop waxing, and just palm roll, separate, shampoo once a week, would that be ok? Also, If my dreads were crocheted to begin with, does that mean I always have to keep using that method?

Help! I'm so torn between 2 methods, haha. All I want are lovely dreads, and I'm a noob who has been reading to many back and forths!

ONE more thing... Can i cut out the little stringy things that have been put at the baset of my roots to 'help dread' ?

P.S. - I've posted a pic of what they look like.
