I am new here, and new to dreads. I'm very concerned - Just got my head dreaded at a salon. Wax and Backcombing. Can I save them?

thank you so much! my heart feels so much lighter. this is a spiritual journey for me, and i got lost in all this crap that people told me about wax and getting it done professionally. this is a lesson. my cherokee spirituality tells me to be natural and patient, and i somehow i let myself be dragged away into this terrible place of thinking i can't do it naturally. when i know that i can. THANK YOU <3

Happy natural knotting, Sarah!That's a really good start. There are still bunched strands where the new dreads will form. All your hard work washing has paid off.

Hi Sarah. You've come to the right place. No way are your dreads totally ruined. I've never used wax, but I know it can be melted or dissolved and your dreads will go on knotting up naturally. There are commercial wax removers, but you may be able to do it without spending any more money.

SE? Anyone with specific advice?

fat Locks take special care


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I have some very tight dreads at the back that used take ages to dry after washing. Hours later they'd still be damp - yuk! Then I discovered exactly what your recommended, Baba. Stand in the shower, let the dreads drip for a few minutes, squeeze them a few times, then wrap a towel around them tightly. When that towel is saturated I sometimes use another. Then sit in the sun, or (on cold days) by the fireplace. So far I've not had to use a drier - which I hate doing anyway.
