Welcome. If you only want to look like you have locks for the season, by all means, keep using wax. But if you want locks to actually form and plan to keep them for at least a few year, or even life, you've got to get the wax out. It prevents locks from forming and is a leading cause of mold and mildew. Wax is a waterproofing material. You use it on cars to protect them from rain damage. It doesn't belong in your hair.
Wax also, will never, at all, wash out in normal soap and water. It's a hydrocarbon. It needs a detergent to clean it. Dawn dish soap works. The wax remover from dreadlockshampoo.com works better. But whatever soap you use to wash your hair will not clean it out.
welcome but nooo do not use wax wax is a dread killer
