Welcome and Happy Dreading..
welcome what kinda help?
It's kind of laborintensive The is a good description in the dreaducation page.
Get a big pot and fill it with the warmest water you can stand to keep your hands in long term. Squirt a generous amount of "tough on grease" dish soap in. (Dawn is best). Then, 1 by 1 dunk each lock into the water and massage the soap into it for about a minute each. If you have more than 20 locks, you may want to change the water 2-3 times. It can get grimy. Then wash your hair like normal. If you only used wax once, do this 2-3 times a week for a month and you can be pretty sure all the wax is gone. 2 months if you used it a few times.
I fell into the wax trap for my first set. I was unlucky and actually had 1.2 my hair rot off and melt off of my scalp. It wasn't pretty.
Welcome and Happy Dreading

Welcome. The wax will actually only prevent locks from forming. I sticks your hair together to create a illusion of locks. But in reality, only the wax hardens. Your hair is never more tangled than it was the first day the wax was put in.
It holds water in your locks and prevents them from drying out completely. This creates the perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow.
Because wax is a hydrocarbon, no amount of normal soap and water will wash it out. It requires a detergent to clean it out.
welcome the wax was a very bad idea and needs to be removed! wax is a dread kliller
