Q. The dread wax I have works like the bomb, but I got a question: My hair is shortish (maybe 3.5, 4 inches) and it seems to be sticking straight upon top and out on the sides. Is this a temporary thing or did I use too much wax?
A. Nope, this is normal with short hair. You have to grab onto something when you are backcombing that section, and the hair you’re left hanging onto turns into this twisty spike. As your dreads get longer and thicker, that will either go away or you can trim it off. But they won’t stick up forever.
