the contents of wax like vitamin e an whatever can be good for hair but not for Dreadlocks because of all the problems it can cause.are you going to a "pro" usually they can screw you over pretty big with their prices and if they don't really know what they are doing they can sometimes use harmful/detrimental methods that slow down your hair from really locking,how much are you paying? normal would probably be like around 40-60$ from what most people pay, but depending on the ego of some people ive heard it going up to 600$ and sometimes these expensive locks were just mangled hair covered in gel that immediately fell apart to normal hair in a few days/weeks.best thing if you really wanna go to a loctician is to research exactly what method you want/find out what methods they do and tell them exactly what you want,best maintenance afterwards is to just keep your hair clean and separated if they start to congo

i wouldnt use the wax from the get go,you will feel 1000times better in the next couple of months, and especially when they get mature.theres such a benefit to not have to worry if you have wax residue in your hair :)..all they need to do is backcomb, so i wouldnt pay more than 40$,, i got my girlfriend to do mine for me, and it took a couple of days

^ yeah I just got friends to backcomb mine, for free. the actual act of backcombing or any other starter method isn't that hard to pick up.

Hi! welcome to the site. I'm working on page that shows a lot of different people experiences with wax. It's still in the works at the moments but if you'd like to check it out so you can see why we all say no wax. If you're thinking about using dread wax or just wondering why it's so bad, read this! Many Blessings

I could be wrong but I don't think there is a specific name for either of those dreads. It's the difference between African textured hair and Caucasian hair. I think lil waynes MIGHT be extensions though?
