Welcome and Happy Dreading..
Welcome. I know that it can be overwhelming to try and speed the process along. But it just can't be done. Locks need time to develop and mature. Crocheting only does damage.
Crochet is terrible for dreads. Make sure you never crochet again. It breaks hairs and takes months for the dreads to recover from it. Other than that, welcome.
welcome but wax ruins dreads if u just started..start over! its that evil if your over a month in then get the wax b gone and start removing wax the reason u should start over tho is it can take weeks to months of hard work to remove wax
the easiest way to remove wax is to comb them out scrub like crazy in very hot water and dawn dish soap 9or whatever u got thats simular)
wax can survive 10 years of washing with shampoo its evil
it will make your dreads rot
Welcome throw away the wax and Happy Dreading
Always, Hippie Love
Welcome. Wax is extremely bad for your locks, though. It does nothing but prevents locks from ever maturing, at best. It traps water inside and creates a perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow. Over time your hair can start to rot and decompose, but the wax will keep it from falling out. It hardens and makes your locks feel mature, but they never actually are. It also makes your locks stiff and uncomfortable.
Because wax is a hydrocarbon, it NEVER washes out in normal soap and water. It requires a detergent and lots of scrubbing and hot water to clean it out.
