Needed: A Professional Loctician
they're just pointing out that wax and lockticians are the worst ways to get dreads.
Wax- they are gross to touch, they stick out alot more and are in general very dirty. This site has an entire section on how to remove wax! For the well-being of your hair i'd suggest you research on this site a bit more to find the best way for you to dread.
Locticians-They often use the crocheting method, which is very damaging makes you think you need to see them often for touch ups and cost alot. Crocheting is not a recommended start for dreads here.
So my advice is do more research on this site, check out the faq, read the forums a few times a day and you'll learn alot.
In general the most recommended ways to start dreads go from natural/neglect, then Twist n Rip, or Back Combing.
And heres some of the links that i recommend but definitely not limited to you check out:

Ok, easy. Please. I was all by myself when I chose to do this. I had no friends who had dreads, no one I knew could DO them and the research I did WAS alot and led me to where I was at the time. My dreads looked fine when I did them, I just want them again. I am a stay at home military mom/wife. give me a little credit. All I asked for was if someone could do them, not your personal opinion. Jeeps!
