washing will affect it because it will keep your hair from retaining the natural oils that you scalp produces. those oils by the way are there to keep your hair from knoting up and becoming locks... if you wash your hair every other day or every 3 days or so it will help your hair lock up so much faster. i have straight hair and i have a bunch of locks forming on my head. also you wouldnt be able to use conditioner for a while until you had fully matured dreads cause the conditioner will stop the locking process as well.

labmofgod said:well does it stay flat after you wash your hair becuase when you have super kinky curly hair it will lock up much faster and it will be comfortable.
Robbbb said:Thee natural metodh wouldnt work well for me lol, when i get in up in the morning my hair goes all flat and lobsided as i have major kinky curly hair. Walking around with a flat head for ages waiting for the dreads too form would not be so good haha
labmofgod said:dont go to a salon its so easy to get dreads all you have to do is allow some time and you will find that your hair will group up rather quickly and become dreads on its own read some of the natural methods under the dread methods tab in the forums or you could try backcombing with out wax or better yet try using the twist and rip method... but i wouldnt recommend those either because they will hurt your head look odd and they will damage your hair quite a bit and going to the salon to get them done will do horible amounts of damage to your hair... also they will probably end up puting wax in your hair.
Robbbb said:The wax is Yellow 100% bees wax i'll not be using it as i have booked to get dreadlocks done in a sloon. The price is 50+ what would make the price increase?
Perculator said:Wax is bad for dreads whatever. but What wax are you using? Is it the type that is made with 100% beeswax with petroleum Jelly in or similar?
