Dread wax buildup and stiff old dreads.

My husband got his first set of dreadlocks in may 2008. He did use wax on them occasionally. After the birth of our child in april 2009 he had me cut his dreads off so he could restart wax free. I was asked to share some pictures of his dreads so here they are.side note: the dreads were very sticky and a little hard...they definitely did not feel natural at all.I will post again with more pics.

Here are some more. I tore one of the ends open a little bit and tried to get a picture of the buildup.

1 question if u hold 1 by the roots area and point the tip at the sky does it defy gravity and point straight up or does it droop normaly if its stiff enough to stand up can you take a pic standing up side bt side with an unwaxy dread of the same size?

that shows pretty graphicly a stiff waxy dread versus a semi stiff waxy dread would be nice to have a nice soft wax free dread comparison toobut it sure proves how stiff they can be and honnestly they dont look nearly as waxy as most wax dreads doLindsay said:

Yea they are not as waxy as a lot I am sure. I hid his wax after a while bc I couldnt stand him using it lol. Most of them are pretty waxy so I dont really have one to compare them to unless I took a picture of one that he has now.
