You're definitely a candidate for the orange oil soap removal concoction that some former Jonny Clean supporters are testing. There's no guarantee that it will get it out yet, but at least it's steps towards finding something that will.
I'm so sorry this happened to you. If go through our forums we've had several argumentative discussions with newbies that support the working man selling wax products. And we essentially say "NO PRODUCTS, GO NATURAL" and they say that we're too negative and are bashing people trying to make a living. This is why we're passionate about natural dreads and dislike products and most of us will always "bash" on products. It's fine to make a living as long as you're not harming other people's hair and pushing wax as the end all be all maker for dreads. We want to rescue as many people from wax as possible and if it makes us not seem like peace loving hippies, FUCK IT. Horror stories like this is what keeps us going.
definitely a story for the wax lovers.
I'm actually really interested to see what it is looking like, even though it's a shitty situation for you, a visual along with this story.. everyone should read and see before using it ya know?
I hope you can get it all out soon and start your new set, product free :D
whenever we say product free it always makes me think of animals. like cage free animals.
The chickens that are kept in cages and are exposed to longer hours of light so they produce more eggs are kind of like dreads that have used wax or other products.
You may get the eggs quicker, and they may look fine, but those poor chickens are producing eggs at an unhealthy level, and in the end, you don't get the healthiest product in the end, and the source is being over forced and weak inside.
those poor chickens :(
But the eggs from free range chickens have a lot harder (healthier) shell, and happy chickens mean healthy eggs :)
You get what I'm saying (hopefully, haha) but anyways, that's just what always pops in my head when I hear "product free" it's a fairly good analogy I think, haha.
What a horror story! Thanks for sharing, Amanda. Sorry you had to go through all that. You should call up the salon guy and tell him exactly what you told us. Either he's intentionally being dishonest with his clients, or he has no idea how wax really works and what it's made from, in which case he needs to admit his ignorance and stop using it.
My first set of dreads went just like yours... this was many years ago and the only dread info on the internet back then for Caucasian hair was from KB and DHHQ. They insist that hair like ours NEEDS wax in order to dread, and sadly, I fell for it. I have no problem with honest marketing and honest people wanting to sell products, but they do not even bother telling you there are viable alternatives, much less explain how those alternatives work -- and they claim they are dread experts and "educators"! What a laugh!
i emailed the salon
subject "learn to do dreads right or stop destroying dreads"
message : "im sick and tired of cleaning up your waxy messes
im tired of hearing i was scammed out of 300 bucks and now have to shave my head
wax never belongs in dreads it destroys dreads
you have received a very negative review from one of your victims on our site
it will be removed if u discontinue all wax use and all harmful methods"
