    Well, I found the scrap of paper I wrote on, they were backcombed on the 12th February 2008.
    I have successfully not given up on something in my life.
    Although it hasn't really been a year, they were backcombed every week till the end of July, they were drenched in wax :(
    Now only a few waxy ones survive, tbh I don't count this as being a year, I count it from the day I realised I had to let go & get this wax out of my hair, It's been about 6 months then really, perhaps a few months longer.
    Anyone give me some closure? I am so happy with my journey so far, it's just a shame the first half of their life was plagued!
    :peace:

    if you truly want closure then you need to truly let the first how ever many months go.. forgive yerself of yer sins n let it go.. no one can give you closure.

    Thankyou Luxie :)
    That's whats keeping me going :)
    There is the one at the back of my head, it is by far the fattest, but it's so loose & I can see the wax that it makes the rest of them look & feel terrible, It has about 1-3 inches of new growth, I just want to cut it! Can I do it :(?
    The rest of them over the last few weeks have taken form so much, im really proud of myself & my gorgeous dreadies!

    REally from the pics you have posted you have gorgeous beautiful dreads.... chopping because they have a heart of wax would be terrible... :( poor little babies... its not their fault..... just leave them be.... you have no reason to cut unless they are buggy or they stink.

    My dreads have wax to the core... but I plan to grow 'em for ages and keep them around the middle of my back...I think in ten years or so I can trim the wax out.... until then... I shall love them :)

    It's only one of them :)
    The rest are under control :)
    I know it would be horrible, but he is getting worse everytime I wash him & traps loads of shiz in him.
    If I cut 3/4's of him off he will be short & stumpy :(

    :O
    He's laughing at me, he coats the others close to him in wax, I could pull him apart!
    Infact! Im going to rip him down the middle(he's coming apart) and do several stages of wax removal :)

    really... just had a lightbulb turn on over my head.... try ironing him with paper towel or something around him... er... maybe newspaper (less likely to stick to the dread)

    I mean I used to flat iron my hair and it was harmless.... and it get wax out of clothing (like when batiking) you iron over the wax with paper around to suck it up.... try it! See if it works...

    shes right it should at least get the wax near the surface to melt into the paper or something more pourose to soak up more wax then paper..denim that would be good
    its still gonna be hard tyo get at the core though
    if it is comming apart take it apart as much as u can no need to cut if u just can brinbg the core to the surface u canh get the wax out
    u can let it redread once its ok

    happy 6 month re-birth day

    its truuuuue, but use brown paper (as in the parcel packing paper) if you use newspaper the ink might run everywhere

    actually the ink doesn't seep because of the dry heat and wax.... well thats when batiking so...*shrug* just use packing paper to be safe :)
