Should I use a hair dryer to melt the wax into my dreads? - Dreadlocks FAQ's

Yes. I will allow you to melt in the Dread Wax after you have applied it and worked it in. You'll also be able to quickly remove any excess wax from the surface of the dreads so they don't feel waxy. If you notice any liquid Dread Wax on the surface of the dread that doesn't melt in wipe the dread with a paper towel to absorb it. The remaining wax will be inside the dread where it can help it compress and tighten the knots when you palm roll.
