My Journey From Waxy Salon Dreads to My NOW Wax-Free Natural Dreads!
salon and loctician dreads recovery
You have unfortunately been fooled by the illusion that is jonny clean. I read in the comments that you feel overwhelmed by all the conflicting information you are getting. That is perfectly easy to understand. A lot of people have opposing opinions on the subject, but honestly the fact of the matter here is, you don't need any products to help you achieve dreadlocks. They will form naturally. Believe me when I tell you that I am in no way against using hair products, nor do I do everything all naturally. I am a hairstylist so I use products everyday, not on my own hair anymore though. I have seen so many different people that have started their locks so many different ways. I can tell you from my experience in the business that the people who start their locks naturally using no wax are always the happiest. I'm not telling you this because I think everyone should go all natural in everything they do, because honestly I love hair care products.
Wax is a hydrophobic substance, meaning it repels water. Just like oil repels water, only worse. No matter how small the amount was that you used it needs to be removed. What happens is the wax will eventually find it's way to the center of your dreads and stay there. It will NEVER come out unless it is properly removed. Once it's in the center of the dread it will not only prevent your hair from locking, it will mold. Yes, mold. Like a mildewed towel. Your dreads will smell awful and soon you wont be able to stand the smell, or how hard and heavy they are. That is why most who used wax will cut there dreads.
If you want nicely locked mature dreads you really should remove the wax completely, and keep removing it beyond the point that you think it is removed. Once the wax is gone, leave them alone. You honestly need NO products, all the extra products are just going to hinder the process. I hope you decide to remove it, but if not I wish you all the best anyway.
