My experience with wax (sad story)
Honesty i was a little skeptical that wax was as bad as you guys made it out to be, because Johnny Clean seems like a nice guy in his videos, but i wanted to join this group because i hate the way wax felt and i don't want to spend money on products and this site says i don't have to.I hope my story helps convince other people that even though they are on this site are somewhat skeptical I had dreads about 6years ago when i was about 16 and i didn't know much about dreads so I just read dreadheadhq.com and followed the instructions and used wax, i thought they all washed out and i was fine. I had to cut my dreads off because the Christian school I was going to did not like them, they looked fine to me and didn't really smell bad.I kept the dreads in a bag just because i love dreads that much and sewed some onto a tam and for a while some people thought i still had dreads and i thought that was cool. I recently got dreads again and i wanted to add some length so i took some of my old dreadlocks and sewed them on a couple dreads(some of you may think i'm strange or dumb but i really needed the extra length to tie my dreads back with my dreads and i need my hair back for work and i hate rubber bands). I thought all the wax was gone but when washing my hair i noticed wax and i took some extensions off and cut down the center and there was wax. I didn't see the wax before because i only cut horizontally. I was really sad cuz i had some great dreads with cool lumps and twists and i had to ruin a bunch cuz i was finding wax in ALL of them. I DIDN'T WAX MUCH AT ALL. I should have washed the extensions before i sewed them onto my hair but i thought i would just wash them with all my other hair. I cut the extension dreads down the center to see the wax and boiled them in hot water and then washed in dish soap 3TIMES!!! before i got wax out, and i think there still might be some wax still in there WAX IS BAD NEWS!!! I could have made a video but it seriously was too painful for me, i just wanted to work on it and get the wax out. I have a couple dread extensions in that had wax but the other extensions are basically clean cuz i boiled them. I wash my hair very well whenever i do wash my hair, which is about 2 times a week just because its very cold right now and i hate having my hair wet. Looking back its good i kept my old dreads otherwise i could have made the same mistake, although i did find your website which has kept me away from wax, but still its good i had something to experiment on and stuff.
