Welcome to the community Jennifer. Glad you found us only 3 days into your journey. Everything can be found on here to learn how to maintain dreads the healthy way. Enjoy the site. ...Peace
Below is a map to show your water type. With soft water, any dread or shampoo bar will work, but with hard water, most of them do not, they leave behind a residue...need a fantastic shampoo? www.dreadlockshampoo.com...the best for all water types....
Welcome. It's good that you stopped waxing. But unfortunately, that's not enough. Wax is a hydrocarbon, which means that it is essentially waterproof. It will stay in your locks for decades, no matter how much hot water and normal soap you use. In order to get out wax, you need a good detergent, and weeks of scrubbing 2-3 times a week.
wow thats odd but sure hope u dread again
Happy to have you as a member of our community. Wishing you much love and peace on your dreadlocking journey as well as your personal Journeys! :D :D
