african salon caucasian hair wax twists/comb coils disaster

Get the wax out, no doubt about that. Wax, over time, degrades, and starts to rot. If you don't get it out, it will rot in your hair. Then you'll have mold, mildew and wax in your hair. That process is even more uncomfortable to get out. I get it that you paid for it and don't want to loose the money, but in reality, you already lost the money. Chalk it up to experience. I'd personally wash it all out, but if you want to try it, try the removal method. You might be lucky and not loose all of the TnR they did. There's a link at the top of the page that details how to do it.

2: Wash, wash, and more wash. 2-3 time a week till they start to mature in a few months. Then you can taper off. But never wash less than once a week. Mine are 5 years old, and I wash 1-2 times a week. Washing helps the process but creating knots and keeping your scalp clean. When you dry, try to air dry as much as possible. A blow dryer doesn't hurt, though. Don't rub your head with a towel, just squeeze the water out and pat it dry with the towel.

3: If you wan't to wear a hat, get a loose fitting one like a tam. You want to give your hair room to move around and rub against itself.

There's a post I made called "top secret" Search for it. It should pop up right away. It's full of info for new locks.

I understand that you fell discouraged. It sucks. But the wax, even if you don't add more, will create so many problems in the near future, that it's really not worth the chance

Dread Misconceptions


General Talk

I always get those kind of questions. Mostly out of curiosity, rather than them trying to tell me what's the right way. I just hold out a lock and let them finger it and play with it for a second. Most of the time they are impressed when I tell them I just let it happen. I did TnR a few, but I've got 23 tips, and they are all congoed together. I can't tell which were made and which were natural anymore.

That's my advice though. Let people who ask you silly questions touch your hair. When they realize that it isn't dirty or waxy like their friends, they will change their attitude

It's not that you can't go from where you are at. The problem is that the wax removal method is kind of intense on your hair. If you go that way, it'll probably just take them out anyway. Plus it's not pleasant and can take months to get all the wax out. It deals with really hot water and dish soap and submerging your locks in them for a few minutes at a time. The first go around wont get it all out, so you'll have to do it over and over again. By the time all the wax is out, if your locks are that young, they probably come out all the way anyway. I'm just trying to save you the discomfort of all of that.

I've got nothing against TnR. I did it to a few of my locks. It works fine. I meant to say to TnR them again, but leave them alone afterwards. Sorry if It sounded like I meant to just neglect them

nuff said. But the wax might not come out just by washing. I'm really sorry to say it, but you should consider just combing them out. That way your can be sure that all of the wax is out. If you did the wax removal methods posted here, they'd all come out anyway. They're young.

Again, I'm really sorry you got charged so much for a service you could do yourself.

No, it will not make your hair more nappy. In fact, it will make it more greasy, more likely to pick up lint, and never ever turn into proper locks. I used wax on my first set and was told to not was for 2 months. When it came time to wash, I am not shitting you, my hair melted off of my head. I lost 2/3 of my hair. It rotted on my scalp and just fell off. I didn't even have to pull it. The water pressure in the shower took it off. The wax made it seem like they were locks, but all it was doing was masking the problem.

No, do not go back to her for $50. It's a ripoff. She doesn't know how to make grow locks. She knows how to make hair look like likes, but that she knows will not be intended to last. people who have locks that used wax, don't keep them for long, either they end up bald like me, or they get tired of thembecausethey itch and they feel like they can't wash because there's wax in their hair.

Do yourself a favor, and wash it all out. Look up a YP video on TnR and then let them grow naturally

Fasting?


Dreads and Diets

I really glad to find this post. I had done a few long term fasts when I was 16-17, but they were, from what I can tell here, not proper. I went between 2-3 weeks each time, and drank nothing but water. I can't see any damage that it caused, but I did not acclimate myself back into normal food properly. When I decide to quit smoking cigs I will definitely be doing it through a fast. Thanks for the great info on how to do it properly

Does Working out= no dreads?


Dreads and Diets

Like everyone here said. Working out is perfectly fine. The salt water will even help the locking process. But you should make sure that you keep up with your hair washing schedule. If you leave that salt water in too long it can really itch. Best to wash your hair when you shower after working out

youtube dreadlocks videos the worse place for dreads vids


General Talk

Thanks. That makes me feel better about it. I always saw my comments as being directed at the person posting the vid, I rarely look at comments on other peoples videos, so I didn't really think about how it would help others who do.

please pray for my 4 young friends


Introduce Yourself

I don't really know what to say. I don't have much experience in this area. One of my friends boyfriends just dies in a car crash, but I haven't been able to see her yet.

So all I can say is how sorry I am it happened. I really hope the three of them are going to pull through. It's just not fair when people so young get knocked down like that. Hopefully they will not have long lasting damage.

Wish them luck and best wishes for me.

I wish I knew what else to say

Good or bad way to create dreads?


Dreading Methods

Did you read what I wrote? I said TNR was fine. It was the palm rolling that I was commenting on. TnR worked fine for the few I did it too. I am not against it at all. I am just saying that if you palm roll to the point where they will stay in forever, even after you wash them, you'll be palm rolling for hours a day. Even with thick hair. I've gotMediterraneanhair. It's probably just about as thick as yours.

Tnr is a blue print. They will stay in their sections, also because your hair naturally sections, but it will loosen up before it tightens and matures.

I'm glad to hear that you don't want to spend time working on your hair. That's part of the beauty of locks. They take care of themselves. You don't have to worry about maintenance.

What does that have to do with anything? damaging your hair is damaging your hair. We might not all wash the same to keep it healthy, but we do all avoid certain actions to keep it healthy
