How I removed wax from my dreads:
Saved Dreads Success Stories
O_O! That sounds horrible! Good thing you got that wax out of your hair! I'm glad you manage away to get it out without cutting your dreads!

That's really cool.
I found out the hard way that I'm allergic to wax (the black beeswax from Murray's especially), so what I did to get it out of my hair was to do multiple soaking sessions with dishwashing liquid. This was before I ever joined this site and at the time I didn't know of any other way to remove it, lol. I used Dawn, Ajax, Palmolive, any strong diswashing liquid I could find. Would soak my locs in very warm to hot water to soften and loosen them, then add the dishwashing liquid and scrub scrub scrub like a maniac (the wax made me break out in a terrible rash anywhere it touched my skin, so I was super determined to get it out as soon as possible). Then rinse with the really warm almost hot water, apply more dishwashing liquid and just let it sit there before rinsing it off later. I did this multiple times over many days.
