And I'm not responsible for anyone that is burned after reading any of my posts!!soaringeagle said:
om amazed we havent heard of anyone being severely burned

I really don't want anyone reading this to think they should try wax in their hair, but you can dunk a dread in suitably heated water without burning your skin. I didn't say it was safe though, just said it can be done. 3rd degree burns anyone??

to raise wax to s temp of 140 to melt it you need a water temp higher then 140 and a duration long enough to bring the wax to the melting point
try heatting water to say 160 put youir hand in it and see how long you can handle it wikki says skin will burn at 130 so wax must be hotter then the temp to injure u to remove it PoopiePants said:
The melting point of beeswax is 60-67degC(140-152.6 deg F). It DOES melt in hot water. The link you posted says that during the cleaning process of beeswax(not dreads!) "....it is washed repeatedly in the molten state by adding hot water..."

I'm not in any way trying to support wax, but this is the info I got from the link. I don't support ANY hair products(dreadlock or otherwise). And fucking hate douchebags like JC. Anubis said:

The vegetable oil used to suspend the wax washes out, the wax stays.

Goo Gone is great for removing the sticky crud left over from price tags, and getting chewing gum off your shoe. It might even work getting wax out of dreads(I will never know for sure), but if it is safe and does work I hope the people that do wax spend the 5 bucks on it instead of another jar of wax. I got a great laugh out of that page. Dread "Products" seem so pretentious to me.Knottysleeves said:
For laughs, you might also enjoy the posts and pictures in DHHQ's facebook group, ironically titled "The truth about Dreadhead Dread Wax : Setting the Record Straight"
Here's a discussion thread from someone who recommends using a chemical solvent called "Goo Gone" to remove wax from dreads:http://www.facebook.com/#!/topic.php?uid=210691366729&topic=10770In their last post they say "ive used 2 bottles of the stuff on my dreads in the past 7 months" but in a post further up the page, they insist "wax is great" and helpfully advises over-waxers to "use goo gone like shampoo for a few days and you can start all over again until u figure out the balance".... So, use a sticky and impossible-to-measure-properly product in your hair to hold your non-locking dreads together, then use an industrial solvent to get rid of it and start all over again? WHERE DO I SIGN UP? The logic is truly baffling.

Help with Beads????


Dread Products

This is funny because I actually found one of these on the side of the road and took it apart for beads for necklaces. Since finding out that beads aid in the locking process, these were the first ones that came to my mind for me to use. Where I live in canaduh there's a dollar store(dollarama) that sells bamboo fishing rods. I got a bunch for making plugs for my earlobes. They'd actually make great beads too.soaringeagle said:
go to a junk yard, find a car with a beaded massage seat cover

General Questions

I had read quite some time ago about homemade dreadlock accelerator, but wanted some tips on actually using it. That's pretty much how I found this place(and am glad I did!).1: Search Engine2: Google3: dreadlock accelerator tips4: dreadlockssite.com5: 1st page 6th site listed(Home made locking accelerator - dreadlock forums)6: There were 5 other pages listed before the above mentioned, and I did go to "How to Make Your Own Dreadlock Accelerator | eHow.com" not sure the actual page address, but that's the name of the link in google. There was a site on dread maintenance(don't have dreads yet, so didn't check it), And the first couple pages were ones I've found before & don't care to visit anyway.7: www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/home-made-locking-accelerator8: I just liked that a lot of people here totally support the neglect method.

Hello Everyone!


Introduce Yourself

Awesome! Thanks for the help SE. I'm going to try it out & see what happens.soaringeagle said:
salts cusrrosive to metal or skin but its very diluted in sweat i dont think it will eat holes in skin but will iritate it
and beads are best closer to tips
if u put it in the middle it wont dread below unless theres at least 6 inches or more below, but anything above the bead will dread much easier..ofcourse if its long enough u can put it anywhere and most of the hair below will dread if long enough

How far up the hair? Right to the root, or midway?? I love macrame and have TONS of beads, so I'm curious what would be the most effective placement. Thanks for letting me know beads actually help the process cause I always thought they were just aesthetic.

and yeah sure salt will corrode metal, but I don't think that metal & hair(or skin) are the same thing. I'm pretty sure there's salt in our own sweat. Isn't sweat salt & water?

unknotted but u can add to any sections
PoopiePants said:
Do you mean add beads to sections that aren't knotted or Sections that are already starting to lock?

soaringeagle said:
u can try also adding beads to sections

Why do you say not on the roots? Because of irritation to the scalp? I literally dunk my head in it, and pour it on the back of my head. My entire scalp gets soaked, and I have no irritation whatsoever. I don't even rinse it out. No dry scalp or dandruff. I've never in my life had problems with dry scalp, and surprisingly still don't. I'm pretty lucky in that department.CBD Makarov said:
I was in the same boat kind of. Just let it do it's thing.

Keep washing with residue free shampoo or baking soda. Just a little.
Use the sea salt but not on the roots. Good luck!
