Welcome. I guess you've heard the bit about wax. It's all true. No wax is safe for locks. Wax is a hydrocarbon. It's used to make things waterproof. That means it makes your hair waterproof too. In other words, when you wash your hair, it doesn't get clean. It only traps water inside, where it becomes stagnant, and allows mold and mildew to form, rotting your hair from the inside out. And because of how sticky wax is, that rotting hair can stay stuck to your head, causing all sorts of other issues.
But all isn't lost. Wax can be cleaned out. But it can't be done with normal soap and water. To clean out a hydrocarbon, you need a good detergent. Dreadlockshampoo.com sells an excellent wax remover. Or, if you're strapped for cash, you can get a good tough-on-grease dish soap. If you have any questions about how to use it, let me know. Otherwise, there is a great description in the dreaducation page. But you don't use the dish soap like a normal shampoo. it's more intense than that
oh that goes for all wax so called locking wax as well
