Wax Removal

So my son has had dreads for a little over three months.  I have been using Beeswax the entire time until, thank the creator, I found this site. I decided that I am going to blog my wax removal processes since this seems to be such a hot topic. I have some ideas of my own that I am going to try first.I am about to begin my first method: a hot flat iron and newspaper. I haven't seen or heard of this being done before I just thought about it and it seems reasonable. Plus, I have everything I need…See More

"hi, i might be a bit of help here, from my understanding so far any wax should be washed out and no maintenance is the best maintenance. kind of a crazy misconception huh?"

do agressive wax removal every tiny bit u put in can take 3 months to get out its pure evil

dont palm roll thats pointkless entirely and will weaken them

just remocve wax  and seperate while weyt seperate often and its painless its easiest when wet

the only thing u need to do is remove wax..ignore the frizz which is worse frizz or mold ? or 5 years of dirt stuck in wax?

wax is so evuil many end up combing them out and starting over wax free

they will dread much much better when the wax is all gone

in fact while removing it you will find the wax prevented proigrss so they are way looser and farther behind then they shpuld be it makes them look maturw while preventing them from dreading at all

the more wax you remove the better they will be

welcome i dont want to assume but did u use wax on your sons dreads? i only ask cause its a common mistake many parents actualy force their kids to use wax thinking it will make them neater if the frizz is controlled but wax really ruins dreads and makes them dirty

ive seen alot of parents force their kids into using it and its a shame
