I've updated the pictures
Thank you Jimmy! I wish you luck in your journey, it can take a time until it dreads but it is really worth it
they send their products worlwide... and you can get some shampoos from them too [they are pretty good and really help your hair to lock up faster]

Can i get the wax be gone in the uk?
Diego F. said:
you should remove the wax [if you used even once you have to remove it because it never washes out of hair with washing], then stop messing with your dreads... it will take a time, but they will repair itself alone.
it's like Ixchel said...
i have perfect hair for dreading [very curly and thick hair] and even having good hair, and doing everything alright my progress is slow... now at nearly 10 months the things are accelerating... but until last month i still had lots of sections of normal hair...
I remember that i saw a lot of timelines that in no time the hair of people was looking like dreads, and my curly thick hair was looking and feeling like normal hair for a long time [it still don't look like dreadlocks at all], but what can i do? Nothing... Only patience and time will do its job.
just be patient, the more you wait, the more proud in the end you will be.
I have updated my timeline ;D this is my last update before June 2 [1 year dreadaversary]... Well, day after day my hair is looking more like i have dreadlocks... The back of my head is dreaded, and now my dreads there are shrinking and eating some loose hair...
The sides are beginning to curl and dread... i have some dreads on the front too... I'm washing with dreadlockshampoo [liquid and bar] and i feel secure to say that everything is going good, and the progress is going fast now, i still cant believe...
sure. I can only separate with dry hair...
My dreads joined at the ends, at my sixth month of neglecting... i had trouble separating, i was not gentle and i broke lots of hair

Hair is stronger and thicker when wet with water, so it can take more "punishment" or stress while trying to separate.
Call Tucker said:
Barrellady is right about getting it wet. Hair rips MUCH easier when it is wet. That's why most people do their separating when they are in the shower.
i don't think that sleeping at the backs could make it dread...
the back of my hair is all dreaded [it dreaded at 7 months], and the sides aren't [i sleep on the sides, and it looks like sleeping at the sides doesn't work at all]
are your hair at the back at least sectioned?
you can try sleeping with a tam and see how it affects the dreading there.
