Welcome to the community MJ and to the beginning of your wonderful journey. I see you use the baking soda wash, apple cider vinegar rinse, here are the proper ratios just to see if yours are correct: http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/ratios-baking-soda-wash-apple-cider-vinegar-rinse-sea-salt-mix
You will go through many changes now, many of your T&R will loosen up and some will fall out, let them do their thing, don't retwist. Want to know what to expect now? Read this: http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/just-starting-out-what-to-expect
If you have hard water, you may need to use either bottled water (I buy the water cooler jug size), or boil your water to use for the baking soda, as it does not mix properly in hard water. If you boil it, let it cool and pour out the water slowly leaving the mineral residue in the bottom of the pot. You don't need to do this fosr the ACV. Enjoy your journey to awesome dreads....peace
welcome but wax is a huge mistake and what are u doing to "fix" them
they dont need fixing but u do need to remove all wax
its a dread killer
u need to get wax b gone (really the best way to remove wax and only way to be sure its gone) from www.dreadlockshampoo.com
are u using a dread shampoo or regular shampoo?
and please tell us what u do ti fix them cause im certain its not helping but harming
Welcome. You use wax to fix them? Unfortunately, that is a contradiction. Wax only destroys locks. It prevents them from knotting, by making them waterproof, and gluing hairs together.
Check out the dreaducation page. Wax causes mold, mildew, and delays progress by years
