Which wax should I use in backcombing?

There are many different products out on the market that say they are intended for dreadlocking hair, but that does not mean that they actually work. Any wax that has the ingredient of petroleum is bad for your dreads, it will make your dreads feel nasty and it will make your dreads fall apart. There are 3 waxes that are appropriate for dreadlocking hair:

1. DreadHead wax
2. Knatty Dread cream
3. Knotty Boy

1. DreadHead wax– This is the best of the waxes we have tested. Its strong points were its long lasting hold and its lack of grease.

2. Knatty Dread cream– Coming Soon!

3. Knotty Boy – this wax is pretty good over all. Decent hold. Its main problem is that it’s greasier than it needs to be and the hold, while long lasting, isn’t that strong. I also think the smell of their wax is a bit much. At first I was like mmm yummy, but after a few hours or so I was like sick to my tummy.
