Been 10 months having locs going 11. Im feeling good, my dreads are maturing surely but slowly. I've decided to take out the from 2 rows from my hair line, so I can discretely have dreadlocks.
Before anyone bashs on me for using wax I KNOW! and truly when I had my dreads first put in, I told my guy not to use wax but since he runs a salon, im guessing to make the "after" pictures look better he didn't listen to me and told me I should wax one. We did wax one and since I loved the look of a dread in my hair I told him to do the rest.... Well 10 months later, I can share my story about wax.
Simple.... DO NOT USE WAX
Even though my "stylist" used minimal amounts of wax, it was enough to make the roots stick together and not matt up... I was noticing that the front dreads didn't mature at the roots at all, I figured it was because of the wax but I was in denial.
Well after taking out a couple of my dreads so far, I have learned that there is wax residue built up with dust, at the root of my dreads.
Its crazy to think that even using wax ONE time will still have a impact on dreads.....
Man I love my dreads but knowing that I used wax even one time was killing me on the inside for I wanted the most natural dreadlocks.
FOR ANYONE WHO IS DECIDING TO GET DREADLOCKS.. KNOW THAT EVEN THOUGH YOUR LOCS MIGHT LOOK BETTER INITIALLY IT WILL SUFFER EVEN FROM A ONE TIME USE!!!
