I know exactly where that is. You've got hard water.
The BS won't dissolve well if you don't boil it and pour off the pure water. It's easy. Just boil the water you want to use for your wash. When it cools, pour it into another container very gently. Don't pour it all. The undissolved minerals sank to the bottom, so you don't want to pour them back into your new container. Mix the BS in and wash with that. The ACV doesn't need boiled water
It still does the same damage. It still glues hair in place and stops the process.
You could probably get the majority of it, if not all of it out, in a month. Wash your hair 2-3 times a week. But prior to washing it, take a bowl of water (a pot would be better), and fill it with warm water. The warmest you can stand keeping your hands in long term. Squirt in a generous amount of dawn dish soap. Then dunk each lock in, one at a time, and work the soap into the center of the lock. I know, it's a hassle, but it's the best way to remove all of the wax. You should do this right before you wash you hair, each and every time. I' say at least twice a week, 3 times is better. If, after a month, you still feel like there might be wax there, do it again for a few more washes. It's always better to be safe.
Then just wash your hair like normal. I suggest the BS/ACV wash. But if you have hard water, BS doesn't dissolve well. Where do you live?, if you don't mind my asking. I can probably find you a map of hard/soft water in your area
Getting rid of the wax will make what you've got so far come undone a bit. But that just how locks progress. No matter what starter method you use (TnR or back combing), it's a 1 step forward 2 steps back process for a few months. Wax only makes it look like you're moving forward. But really, you're not moving at all.
So removing the wax will appear to set you back, but it will be allowing them to mature.
It won' mess them up at all. The wax is what's messing them up. You may want to TnR or back comb them again, but it's not necessary. Hair naturally mats and locks on it's on from not brushing it. All you need to do is wash it and separate it.
How many times did you use wax? That will matter in how much you need to try to remove it. Wax does not wash out in a normal soap ad water wash. It takes quite a few sessions with a tough degreasing detergent like Dawn dish soap or the wax remover from dreadlockshampoo.com.
Welcome. Stopping using wax is not enough. Especially bees wax. I used bees wax for my fist set, and my hair literally melted off my scalp fro how bad it rotted. You have to remove it to let any locking start. All wax does it prevent locks and make them look like they are mature. They will never get past the infant stages if any wax is in them
