I recently dreaded my 13 year old daughters hair. I did all my research on line. Youtube etc. I used the back comb method with wax. Now, a few weeks later, the dreads are coming loose @ the roots. What do i do?

np the roots will loosen more and more for months that provbides movement room to dread they will get up to 1-3 inches loose at the roots ..totaly norrmal then round month 8 tighten up and stop at 1/2 inch

u will always have soose roots tho its nesacarty

over tightening the roots can cause thinning breaking even balding in extreme cases the baldings permenant

so let the roots take care of themselves

but ya ..get that wax out!

yes but its very difu=iciult its easier and better to start over

soak in undiluted apple cider vinager 10 min then squeeze em out like toouythpaste squeezing the wax out the ends

then

very hot water near scolding and lots of dawn dish soap scrub like crazy

repeat repeat repeat

if thats not enougg then the orange oil based solvants

idf they are thick or at all tight it can take months and never be sure u got it all thats why if your under a month its best to start over

many have tried for mnths and even were convinced it was all oyut only to be surprised later it want

but if u do decide to try to remove it the more u remove the bettwr

even if u cant get it all
