You’ve over-waxed your dreads and now your head is looking a little more ‘candlestick’ than ‘clean and tidy’. Never fear, just a few simple steps and you’ll have all that excess Knotty Boy Dread Wax gone and locks looking as good as new!
You will need:
- Blow Dryer
- Paper Towel (coarser, industrial paper towel works better than the soft, household type)
- Dread Shampoo or Bee Washed Pre-Dreading & De-Waxing Soap
Working with one dread at a time, blow dry from root to tip for 15-20 seconds on High heat to soften the Wax.
Wrap the paper towel around the dread and squeeze firmly. The softened Wax will be absorbed by the paper towel.
Repeat until you’ve absorbed as much Wax as possible.
Give your dreads a good wash with a Dread Shampoo or Bee Washed Pre-Dreading & De-Waxing Soap in very hot water. Check out our How to Wash Dreads video tutorial for step by step details on washing locks.
When you continue with your regular weekly dreadlock maintenance routine, remember, less is more when it comes to Wax. A little goes a long way! But you totally know that now, right?
