How can I use beeswax/honey/Aloe Vera/etc. to dread my hair for dread braiding?

Regular beeswax is very brittle, it will be really hard to put on the dreads unless you melt it and then put it in. But as soon as it dries it’s just going to chunk off, and leave little pieces behind, that will hold dirt and make black spots in your dreads.

Honey is very sticky and it is not very thick so it will just coat the hair like gelatin would and not help hold the knots together in the dreads. It also attracts bugs and dirt.

The only thing Aloe Vera can be used for in dreads is to condition them, but it will not help the dreading process when the dreads are new.
