beeswax

About a week and a half ago I started my little dread baby's with beeswax only because when I tried to start them a week prior they would just come loose from either shower humidity or Florida humidity. To me they seem to be alright Im no stranger to dreads prior to restarting my dreads I had had them for 7yrs you could see the difference in my profile pics. They seem fine to ME but I need YOUR opinions. Before my dreads were over manicured and while roots looked great my ends were all weak and stringy and I really began to hate the way they looked so I made the big chop. Now I understand myself a little more and I want my dreads to look more freeformed or effortless so to speak. Do I need to wash the wax out? If so how would my hair not come loose from these little twist? Now I doing this thing the right way so I can be satisfied with the results and I figure what better people to ask than you dreadheads or dread lovers. So help me out y'all I guess after 7 yrs of dreads I'm really new to the game and found that I actually knew nothing at all about this journey. So give me a holla, thanx in advance!

if your hair is just twisted I think it would be easiest to undo them and wash out all the wax. It's not necessary, it will slow actual dreading while making them look locked.

lol no prob :) What wax does is stick the hair together. However little you use that's what it does.When hair is actually locked it is really intricately tangled together..like it weaves itself together..wax doesn't allow for the movement needed to tangle, so it looks all tight and together but on the inside it's just stuck together instead
