Thank you for your comments. Muchly appreciated. I have only had these dreads in since April this year and luckily haven't waxed them too often. I didn't know until recently that wax was that bad for you. I have since learnt the rip and twist method and will be using that method from now on for anyone that wants their hair done. I wished I had looked into all of this before I started on my hair. Would have definately done mine differently with the rip and twist method for sure. Thanks again for your comments. I love this site! Who said u can't teach an old dog new tricks lol. Peace out :)

welcome but wax only makes u look like u git dreads while completely preventing them from dreading lock peppa is a scam just like wax it literaly does noth98ng but create an illusion

perm solutions are 1 of the 3 worse things u can ever do

u shouldnt be speeding up the proces u should be allowing the process to haqppen on its own

u must remove all traces of wax or they wioll rot

wax is pure evil\in fact u should start over i wouldnt backcomb either ...go natural (best) ir use twist n rip

no products at all

Welcome. But wax slows down the process, at best. In most cases it completely stops it. All it does is glues your hair together to look like they are locks. They never progress past the first day you put it on.

And it never washes out in normal soap and water. It may melt in hot water, but it doesn't rinse out, it melt deeper into your locks where it is now harder to get out. Wax is a hydrocarbon. It needs a detergent to wash it out. Normal soap is not a detergent.

Wax is also the leading cause of dreadlock rot and mold and mildew growth. If you've been using wax for 10 years, you're lucky if they don't smell. But you should think about washing the wax out if you plan to keep them for 10 more years.

The lock Peppa is a scam too. You can by sea salt for $2 or less anywhere and make your own.

Plus, perms destroy your hair, not help it. There's no way to speed up the process without completely obliterating your hair.

Dreadlocks form naturally. There's no reason to try and speed it up

Welcome. Wax will only prevent locking, though. I know where is a lot of info out there telling you that wax is needed. But no hair type needs wax. And every hair type is destroyed by it. At best it will just stop progress. But wax is a hydrocarbon and traps water in your hair. When water festers, it causes organic matter to rot. That is what happens in swamps. And if you keep the wax in your hair, it is what is going to happen in your hair.

Check out the dreaducation page on how to remove the wax. It is a difficult process, but for the health of your scalp and hair it needs to be done.

Welcome :) just want to say that hair doesn't tend to dread at only three inches. I think six or so inches is when it gets long enough to dread on its own. Also, I don't know if you still use wax or not, but that thing can stay in your hair for years even when you don't realise it, and it can really slow down the progress, so I'd advise you to stop using it and try to get it out (if not already). Your hair may look like they're dreading, but on the inside they often stay undreaded because of all of the wax that remains. If you go the natural route and let them do their own thing, it feels like they're not dreading as fast, but they are dreading properly, whereas wax doesn't let them dread properly. Here's a link with information about it, it probably explains the problems with it better: http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/dread-wax-why-ya-dont-want-it

Don't be afraid to ask any questions, peace.
