This is a thread started by a member who waxed sparingly and then spent a full year trying to recover from it. He did wax removal 2x per week and still couldn't get it out. He cut his dreads off and has some pretty disturbing picture evidence to share with us as well as some words of wisdom.
Another dissatisfied DHHQ customer who had to shave her head, while pregnant due to wax
Another person had to comb out their dreads after only using wax once
This is someone who has been on both sides. Having one set of waxed locks that had to be cut off and now having great product free dreads to compare
Here's another member who had a previous set of waxed locks and now is thrilled with their beautiful product free dreads
Another first hand testimony on dread wax.
These are some pictures of waxed dreads that have been cut open to reveal the filth and wax trapped inside
Here is a review from the better business bureau grading DHHQ an F on their reliability report. Not only do they sell a harmful product but they are a slimy greedy company as well. Johnny Clean doesn't care about your dread health he only cares about making a buck selling you one product after another to counter act the last one you bought.
This is a pretty interesting post. It seems there a quite a few former DHHQ supporters that are less than thrilled with the outcome of Johnny's products on dreads. Two of these former supporters are now working on a new dread soap that helps remove the waxy buildup from your dreads. Good Job Guys!!
This is the TRUTH about wax
knotty jonny clean from dreadheadhq faces those who were harmed by dread wax! there was anger but communication prevailed, jonny clean admitted to finding wax did build up in dreads and prevent the formation of knots.
update months went by, knotty jonny clean kept claiming he would update his page, include info on wax free dreads, and offer free wax removal to anyone who asked as well as include it in kits. eventualy communication broke down when it became clear he was all talk and no action. to this day many months later, nothing on his site has changed, and he still sells wax knowing it is harmful without a doubt.
Dreading without the use of products is a beautiful learning experience. It's meant to be stress free and fun. Adding products like wax and a strict maintenance routine can completely ruin the experience so you're spending more time on your hair than you did before dreading.
