hmm. maybe i'm being over-anxious, but okay. i started my dreads wednesday... continued on friday.. will be done with them tomorrow. before i ask my main question, i was somehow led to believe that i'm supposed to not wash my hair or get the wax out for a week, then i can start using the dread soap to clean them, am i right?

okay main question (the one i think i'm over-anxious about): my dreads that i have so far stick out a lot, i've worn a bandana over them two days, but they don't seem to be staying down when i take it off. i'm thinking as soon as i wash the wax out the dreads will fall nicer and won't stick out as much. i was just looking for some confirmation on these things.

p.s.- even though i haven't been in this community for too long, i've already noticed that you are all some of the nicest, friendliest, and most helpful people i've heard of. you kick ass!

Hi, Im new. I recently got dreads in, well the first time was about a week ago, they were perfect, then i stupidly washed them out and brushed and brushed, leaving one or two in. Last week a friend of mine put them in again, though my hair being all waxy it seems to be really messy. Ive been told to leave it a week, then wash it. Im confused and baffled on this whole thing. IF anyone can give me any tips on dreads, anything at all..i will be most grateful!
