i used wax on my first set for 6 years. after a few years there was white spots all in my dreads and if i tried to pick it out with like a sharp object or my fingers it just spread thicker and got more visible.after cutting them and starting my loctician doesn't use wax and i have virtually none of that extra stuff in my hair anymore.

I use wax and I think it helps my dreads. I used to have very straight hair and it did not want to dread when I first started but the wax helped them hold together.

hold together prevents knotting it does not help it creates an illusion of helping they will never dread till the wax is removed

I am so glad I didnt use wax in the making of my dreads! Before I made my dreads I thought the only way to make them would be to buy wax and that didnt make much sense to me. I thought, if dreads are supposed to be natural then why would I want to put all these products in them? Also you said something about aloe. I have pure allow and I was wondering how I would use it in the maintaining of my dreadlocks?

Thank you for all the information

use aloe mostly to condition mature dry dreads

but for a formal events u can use it to tame frizz but since its conditioning u suee dont wanna use it for everyday frzz controll instead just ignore frizz

but for say job interviews and weddings u can use it

if your african (assume so if u use mango lime srtuff and twist) your hair absorbes it lil more its still waxx so not good to use but i believe (someone corect me if im wrong) the mango lime wax is less waxy not as thick and goopy as the other waxes


still i wouldnt use it


instead use pure aloe

or use nothing excxept when u need moisture (which will be fairly often)
