Alright, so I'm sure I already know the answers to this question, but I needed some help.
My dreads were growing natural for about 5 months, and then I decided around the 5.5 month period to start backcombing. They plumped up and everything was peachy. Then I decided to be an idiot and turn to wax. Why? I don't know.
I realize that dreads take alot of time to form and that i should be patient, and believe me, I am being patient.
I washed them the other night [with the knotty boy bar] and they were the best they've ever been. But that night I slept on them when they were still just a bit damp. I should also mention I live in Toronto, and the smog and wet snow and everything we've been getting lately might not be helping, but my hair has gone EXTREMELY limp all of a sudden.
I figure it's a mixture of the wax residue plus the smog plus the smog and dirt in the wet snow, but is there any way I can fix this?
They don't look too appealing whatsoever. They seem to be getting greasier as the days go on, but since I washed them the other night and they're still new, I fear washing them again in case they fall apart. [Which they tend to do alot lately.]
And so it's not a text-only post:
