Looping


General Questions

I'm sure this question has been asked/answered a million times already, however my search only turned up pictures and no answers!
Looping..its a good thing, right? Because i've got some mad crazy looping going on these days, it feels like every time i've washed out the wax with wax-be-gone, my hair suddenly loops up like crazy! Do the loops go away or are they going to look that way permanently?

Canadian reviews Wax-Be-Gone!


dread wax and dread kits recovery

I should also add i've washed it again with the wax-be-gone (and I still have enough left for 2 washes i'd wager!) and my hair is feeling lighter and puffier each time. My hair has also started looping like crazy...even the 'perfect' looking front dreads I used to have are looping! So intense!!

Canadian reviews Wax-Be-Gone!


dread wax and dread kits recovery

Hello! I ordered wax-be-gone in october and it arrived today (yay!! Sucks that it takes forever to get things from the states, but thats life :) ). I just tried it out, so here is my review!

Similar to what the other wax-be-gone review says, my container came with a sample of their shampoo - which, by the way, smells AMAZING and I will definitely be ordering some more!!!
The smell of the wax-be-gone reminded me of some orange cleaner that my mom used when I was a kid; not unpleasant though. I got my hair wet and then lathered up - it had the consistency of agave without the sticky and stayed in the hair nicely so there was little drippage or mess. I got every dread and let it sit, then rinsed it out and followed with the shampoo. Immediately after my first try, here are my observations:
1. My hair felt like hair again. I hadn't realized how stiff my dreads were until I used this; they move like hair!
2. They got majorly puffy. Which is fine. They are nice and soft now, and for the most part don't have a hard core to them.
3. Most of my hair stayed knotted (they are 5 months old and were crocheted once. I used wax once a week for the first 2 months and then stopped.). A lot of the hair at the nape of my neck came out and around my temples as well.
Overall I would say from my first try, this stuff works GREAT. I will do it again (I dropped the jar and spilled half of it...slippery hands...oops) but I have enough for another go. Just from one wash, I feel like most of the wax is out, and now I just have to learn to accept my electric shock baby fine frizzies everywhere!

This is a great product and I would highly recommend it.

Wax in new dreads..


dread wax and dread kits recovery

You know, my first set of dreads (not the ones i have) I backcombed and waxed the crap out of. I had them for 3 months, they looked like disgusting candles, and eventually I got them combed out by a hairdresser and the LINT and nastyness inside them was SHOCKING. This time I used a tiny bit of wax because I didn't realize that all wax was evil, but now I completely understand the error of my ways. Twist and Rip or just let them be!

Help! Save My Dreads

Hello!
i'm new here! I just ordered some wax-be-gone from your website, i'm really excited to try it. I started my dreads 4 months ago with wax and backcombing; 6 weeks in I got them crocheted. I stopped using products a month ago and when I did use the wax I used it only once a week and sparingly. They are thin and tight with some clumps (i'm assuming wax) so I'm wondering if when I wash them with the wax be gone, will they fall apart? I'm thinking they won't because they were crocheted. Will they still be healthy? Can they recover? I don't really want to comb them out and start over, although i'm sure you will recommend that. ;) I just want them to fatten up and be fluffy and happy.I've attached a pic so you can see. Sorry that it is sideways....not computer literate over here. :)

Election poll....


General Talk

I am a canadian, and can honestly say I find myself talking more about American politics than our own countries. Why? Because every party here is basically the same - sure, Stephen Harper has kinda effed us over lately, but he'll likely be voted out by a big liberal overhaul led by Justin Trudeau. Anyways. American politics affects us big time in so many ways, and it terrifies and frustrutes me to see americans fighting for things that we have had for years. Healthcare? I pay $130 a month (for a family of 3) and i'm covered for everything. Sure, sometimes hospital waits suck, but theres always private clinics. Abortion laws? Apparently you can get an abortion up to term here in Canada, and while I don't necessarily believe that to be right, its not my baby, and not my decision. I find american politics so polarized, so full of lies, and watching fox news is so terrifying full of garbage and things that aren't important...yikes. I wish you guys had a third option. Someone who cared about real issues. Someone who cares that the oil off the gulf of mexico is still leaking and no one at BP has lost their job. Someone who cares about the fact that as a society, we depend on each other, homeless or rich, to succeed. Only by bringing each other up can we hope to get through another century without a major empire collapse. I pray that Obama is voted in, because without him, this continent is going to hell in a fiscal, war-torn handbasket. At least he is a puppet with a brain.
