Combing out advice?

OK, I'm ready to comb out my wax dreads and start over using TnR then neglect (with beads, I'm pretty certain I will use beads). I was wondering, what is the best way to comb them out, leaving the hair minimally damaged? (beyond what I've already done...ugh..)

I was thinking olive or coconut oil, but how long do I need to let it sit, if at all?

Simple enough, thanks! Oh, and which oil would you use? I have copious amounts of both, so it matters not to me...(except coconut oil smells so yummy!)

I'm not happy with how my hair was sectioned off in the first place, which is a huge part of why I'm starting over. I don't think I've used so much wax that I could never get it out, but I just hate the sectioning. And some of the dreads that were back-combed look terrible.

I just washed out my wax using HOT water, over days and days , maybe 10 days , 6 hours of HOT showers mostly sitting letting the water cascade over the waxed , back-combed dreads.

some loosened us, but it was all good.

if you want to keep dreading , why not just wash out the wax and go with what you have happening and than let it evolve naturally, no ripping ot twisting, why not let your locs rest and bit, if i may ask you?

cheers and peace
