ok so just throw away the hook ,stop palm rolling and your good
I have a video about flat locks and one about palm rolling, posted on my page, if you want to look at them.
As for the BS/ACV washes, they are great. But it won't get wax out. The only way to break down wax is with a detergent. A good degreasing dish soap will be fine. Or dreadlockshampoo.com sells a great wax remover. You don't use it like a normal shampoo. It's a whole different routine. But it's necessary. Some of the wax may have come out. But most of it is probably melted deeper into your hair, out of sight and feel.
If you need advice on how to go about scrubbing the dish soap in, let me know. Or look at the dreaducation page. There is a great description there
welcome hope u did get the wax out but never crochet! thats worse then wax it is pure destruction and will delay progress by 6 months if only done once throw the hook in the trash so yoiur never tempted to use it again
Welcome. What did you use to get the wax out? And how long did you wash for? Wax is a hydrocarbon. So that means it's waterproof. No amount of boiling hot water and normal soap will ever get it all out. Wax needs to be scrubbed out with a detergent, 2-3 times a week for at least 1 month, to get it out. Otherwise, it just melts deeper into your locks. It may seem like it's all gone, but it's just hidden inside your locks.
As for palm rolling and crocheting... Both cause severe damage that can't be fixed. Palm rolling once in a while does nothing to create lasting knots. but doing often enough to see progress will destroy your hair. I did it for only 2 weeks in the very beginning, and 7 years later I am still trying to fix the damage.
Crocheting delays progress at best. But with every pass of the hook, you rip hundreds of hairs into smaller and smaller pieces. This makes your locks weaker and weaker. In time, they can be so fragile that a slight tug can snap them in half.
welcome umm xxx?
how did you start and maintain them?
