Ok. Being as open-minded and objective as possible, is there anything to be said in favour of dread wax? Anyone? If you use a very tiny bit, and you feel it helps your dreads for a month or so, and it eventually does wash out...is that ok? I still find myself in two minds about it now and then. One thing that tends to sway me back against it in the end is that when your dreads are young and delicate etc, anything that means you have to wash them more vigorously is still best avoided. Does anyone think there is some point of balance that can be achieved, between enough wax to "help" (whether that means a perceived prevention in knots falling out, or making frizzies more bearable), and little enough for any progress not to just get washed out again? I do think that someone coming to this site for advice finds only a very closed debate, lacking in some balance. Has anyone here had a positive wax experience, or perhaps an experience with wax where they did feel there were disadvantages, but these were outweighed by advantages? hippiehillbilly, howcome you didn't use wax? And can you describe your other half's wax usage technique, which you insist is successful?
