Sounds like my story dude... only used it the first day and some of my dread still got wax. I did the removal but I had 2 dread that became hard in the middle and wax impossible to get out. I just combed them and wash it really well. Now they are going natural way since last week and it's not that bad.and yeah , FUCK WAX, FUCK DHHQ

i just found two more in the back of my head with some residual wax buildup in them. fortunatly they were almost completely loose hair. All i did was wipe it off (for the size of the dread, a full wax removal isnt worth it) and twist and rip the hair. What i figured was that the wax on the outside of the hair has not problem being washed away or worn off during normal activities, its on the inside where it gets built up. This way i doubt the minuscule bit of wax will cause too many problems.Now this puts me in a unique position. I have tried almost every method of dreading for about an equal time. So in order ill review from best to worstBest: Natural - the ones that were completely left alone are very rope like. Although there very wavy there tighter than all my other dreadsBackcombing: Although they fell out pretty easy, the one dread in the front of my head that was VERY tightly backcombed is ridiculously tight. Not as tight as the natural ones but its also not so wavy so its kind of a compromiseTwist and rip: Most of these guys are pretty fluffy but holding together well. Seems pretty decent, nothing too specialWorst: Backcombed and waxed: The dreads that were initially backcombed and still had residual wax came apart so easily it was rediculous. No knotting going on at all. Aesthetically, they looked just as good as all the other baby locks but after i removed most of the wax and twistnripped they are MUCH thicker

Here's a recipe to remove wax that may work (I hear it's wonderful!). In fairness, I pulled it from a dread site that pulled it from another dread site (http://dreadlocktruth.com/community/index.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=196):Grab a big bowl of warm water, or hot-ish if you can stand it. (as hot as possible)Add 3/4 cup of baking soda,8-9 drops of tea tree oil,2 table spoons of lemon juice,and 2 table spoons of sea salt,stir and stir until it's dissolved.Soak dreads in the bowl or use a squirt bottle or something similar to apply it to your scalp and dreads.Grab a towel and wrap it around your head and leave it there for around half an hour, or more.Rinse it out, really well. And that's it!Good luck.
