Hey guys,
I've been locking my hair for a lil over 6 mos. now.
My hair was very straight and is just finally starting to lock and knot up.
Yet I have very straight ends and lots of loose hair on top.
Any words of advice?
Jah bless~

u screwed up using wax wax prevents dreading get the wax out and they dread 3 times faster
but anything (besides being wax free) that forces the dreads to dread faster will only end up getting them lost or cut sooner
u gotta be patient but 1st u need to get all the wax out asap
wax destroys dreads
well actualy there are 2 ways to sp;eed up dreading

1 forget that your trying to dread.. do nothing at all just ignore yoir hair completely except to wash dont rub or roll twist or anything
2 swim in the ocean or do sea salt sprays (dont dare buy dreadheadhq acceleratort thats 2 cents worth of sea salt for 10 bucks u can make 385 bottles for 2 bucks or for 1985 bottles for the 10 u buy 1 for from dreadheadhq ..they are the biggest scam there is


lets get the wax out 1st and u will see in the next 2 months u will see more dreading then u saw in the entire 6 waxy months
I have heard alotta different views on the wax... I've been using much less now that I've been getting results. But I will stop it now totally... :)
Wat about shampoo? Is Dr. Bronner's good? And I should just ignore my hair all together?
stopping the wax isnt good enough u need to remove all the wax u added and that is not easy at all it dont wash out it can survive decades of washing wax is evil

and yea once the wax is out just do nothing it will dread fine
bronners is good for most ppl unless yuour water wont rinse it well if u feel sticky after using it switch to the baking soda acv
u might wanna do baking soda monthly anyway
also if u use bronners dilute it alot 12 times more water then bronners
Thanks so much for the info... :)
I have been using Bronners straight... So now I know not to do that... Once a month I've been doing an acv rinse but how does the baking soda play in?

baking soda is a deep cleanse that will remove so much more dirt then any soaps
u can wash with soap then do baking soda right after and the rinse water will turn brown!
the acv after bs restores ph ballance
but it also degreases too
the combo causes your hair to be cleaner then anything else can
u will love it
Thank u all soooo much~
Can't wait to quit waxing and go for the bs/ac rinse.
Much love and respect

If you used wax you will need to aggressively aproach the process of ridding your dreads of wax but it's SO worth the effort.. I can attest .. I had the same issues and tried every supposed remedy with no completely effective results until I used the bodysplash.. repeatedly .. as you will notice on my 'how to' thread... good luck and take pics .. three months from now I bet your dreads are epic !
Thanks so much all!!!
Love and Respect~
youll love dreads that arent stiff and sticky
and they really do dread much faster without wax
Yeh I agree wax works really well.....:-P
