The Development of Knotty Boy Dread Wax
In 1998, Knotty Boy Dread Wax was the result of a need to find something to help locks come together quickly, stay clean and healthy, and look great. Dreadlocks, like all other hairstyles, require attention, care, and love, especially in their first few years of development. Letting them "just come together on their own" is fine if you want to take your chances on how they'll turn out in the end and don’t mind how crazy they may look in the mean time. With Knotty Boy Dread Wax you have complete control over how fat or skinny you want your new locks, how quickly they develop and what the end result will be. Also, contrary to popular belief, using an all-natural product like Knotty Boy Dread Wax does not create ‘fake’ or ‘unnatural’ locks, but rather, it utilizes the properties of natural, earth grown ingredients to facilitate and speed up the natural locking process. Nothing unnatural happens when you use Knotty Boy Dread Wax. It simply helps to make better locks, faster.
Of course, there are materials around the house that some people try to use to do the same thing: honey, egg whites, glue, toothpaste, etc. PLEASE steer clear of these processes. Having to cut all your hair off because of destroyed hair, bugs and/or excess dirt stuck to them is almost always the result of these food-product locks. This also includes melting down pure beeswax and applying it yourself, as this can be extremely dangerous because of both the tendency for beeswax to burst into flame when heated and the danger of serious burns caused by dripping melted beeswax on your head. Not to mention lumpy, chunky candle-dreads at best... you get the picture.
Knotty Boy Dread Wax is unique from other hair waxes on the market because, even though many claim they can be used on locks, these products are often not designed specifically for them. Additionally, other hair waxes commonly contain icky Petroleum by-products which, like a tub of grease, can be nearly impossible to wash off your skin and hair, and can actually be harmful for them.
In contrast, Knotty Boy Dread Wax is an all-natural formulation specifically for holding new locks together even while being washed, and does naturally wash out of locks gradually with every hot and steamy shower if you do not continue to reapply. Bottom line: Knotty Boy Dread Wax is a non-greasy, non-"cakey", strong holding, sweet smellin', easy-to-use jar of joy! Although it is soft enough to apply with ease, it is strong enough to bind your locks together effectively until they are mature enough to continue developing on their own.
