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!!

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?

veggie vegan omni ital? whats your diet and hows it relate to your dreadiness (if at all)


Dreads and Diets

I am currently a meat eater; after becoming pregnant with my daughter last year i craved meat intensely. Prior to that, I was a strict vegan for 2 years and vegetarian for 7 years. I watched an interesting documentary called 'the vegetarian myth' which may be good for those undecided. My husband is a chef, so we get all our meat locally and he butchers it himself, then we store it in our deep freeze. I have been on both sides of the fence and I have no strong feelings for either anymore, other than respect what you eat and be thankful. If anything, my dreadlocks have deepened my belief that food is not about whatever diet you choose, its about being sustainable for the planet and good for your community. :) mono-cropped soy is just as bad as factory farms, for different reasons, but all bad.

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.

What are your reasons for Dreading?


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

I also didn't have a real reason for dreadlocks. At first, I just knew i'd always wanted them and thought they looked amazing. Then, once I had them, I realized it truly is a battle of letting go, of accepting self. When I would go online and read how people felt changed spiritually, I would raise my eyebrows, but now, after only four months, i'm beginning to feel a change...I don't know what it is, but I feel a deeper peace inside than I have in a long time, like I am truly ME, and that most people just accept that, and 99% of the world doesn't even care what I do with my hair!! It is truly freeing.
Also, it helps to sort out the judgemental fools you may not be able to spot immediately, when they give you a look of disgust on the street (or at the swimming pool, as was my case today).

Crochet recovery


Dread Maintenance

Wow, I am so glad I found this thread....I am so unhappy with my crocheted dreads, they are so tight just from the one time I got them done, all I want is fat fluffy locks!! :,( I regret it so bad! They are only 4 months old though, I hope you all are right and they eventually fatten up to the root base size. I'm in this for the long haul!

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!
