it does tighten but yes it can irritate the scalp and make u itch..its not necessary at all but helps and u should avoid the scalp only spray the hair and rinse out after a couple hoursela said:

When I first started my dreads I used the back combing method and the KB wax. In the midst of that craziness I came across this amazing website and stopped backcombing and using the wax which I didn't like the feel of or smell of at all. But now I'm letting my dreads go naturally and most of them are locking up nice. Im so glad I found this website it's truly one of the most informative helpful things I've come across

When I got my dreads almost five years ago now, I had hair down to my hipbones. It was thick, fine, and did not dread that easily. I searched around and bought Knotty Boy's dread wax and, being a n00b, used it ALL over my head. Waaaayyyy too much wax at once. My dreads were wiry and small and looked like worms. The wax smelled amazing but the feel of that much of it really sucked; I slept at night with a pillowcase over my head for weeks so I wouldn't ruin my pillows. Wax is wax, so it'll make your head kind of sticky and, well...waxy! After a few weeks I dyed my dreads. The shampoo the dye company provided completely took all the wax out of my hair and my dreads were so fluffy! Mind you, they were fluffy but frizzy and felt like they were coming out in areas. So I went back to the wax. This time, I palm rolled each dread really good and then put a SMALL amount of wax on the areas I felt were weakening. I rolled the wax right into my dread and when I was finished my whole head, I smelled like beeswax and my dreads didn't look like worms; they looked NORMAL! I slept without the pillowcase and I know the wax helped my dreads stay in better. After that I used the wax maybe once a month, in small amounts, focusing on areas that were getting frizzy. I used wax in the 0-3 month stage, and haven't used it since. For first-time dreadheads with hair that's really straight and fine; you might find that wax is a good option for you. Everyone saying how wax is evil are just talking from their personal opinions and that's fine; but don't be put off wax just because everyone (for some reason) hates it. If you've tried it and it ain't for you; don't use it. But Knotty Boy have some really good stuff.

I've also bought their bar and liquid soaps. The liquid soap is the best; it made my hair smell like a candy cane and it made my scalp all cool and tingly! The bar soap did the job I suppose, but it didn't smell at all and was just kind of blah.

you have a funny way of defining "works" just because they were less frizzy they dreaded way way slower if tghey are even dreaded at all after 5 years

wax holds hair in place as you just said..hair held in place will never dread..it has to be free and able to move to dread so it did the oposite of work

now you have all that wax in your dreads fior years

if yiou remove the wax they will reveryt to dreads that seem only a few months old

and umm how do u know your hair would not dread hair to the hips will dread like crazy no matter what condition unless caked in wax or extremely extremely oily

you are basing it working ion a false perception the illusion it creates by gluing the hair together.. it seems to be dreaded cause its stuck in wax..but it prevents actual dreading

i will buy you wax..if yu do the wax removal and really want to be wzxy again but i gueranteee when u remove the wax u will know the truth whenyour 5 year old dreads are less dreaded thebn most at 5 weeks

thats the reality of wax..yiu dont have dreads..you have hair compressed into wax thsat wuill never dread right

Apparently I had wax in my hair for five years. Don't you read? It was in for a few weeks before I took it all out with shampoo. Geez the intolerance in the dread community is really bad eh. I'm down for people who use different methods 'cause (gasp!) all hair is different, but mine needed a little bit of wax. Actually READ my comment above; I'm not trying to change minds of people who've had locs for a long time, I'm trying to offer people with my type of hair some advice, whether they like the wax or not is up to them. I know lots of people with gorgeous locs who've started out using wax and lo and behold, their hair didn't fall out or turn plaid. *shakes head*
