    Way back in 1998.... there was Knotty Boy Dread Wax. Created on a stovetop on a small island off the west coast of Canada, Knotty Boy Dread Wax was the result of one 19 year-old girl's quest to find a truly natural formula that would help locks come together quickly, stay clean and, of course, look great. Fast forward many years later: Knotty Boy is still a small company, and that same fabulous Dread Wax continues to be one of our most popular products!

    It is a fact that beautiful dreadlocks, regardless of length or hair type, require attention, care, and love, especially in their first year of development. Letting them come together on their own over time is a perfectly acceptable way to create dreadlocks, however, it simply offers no control over how long it takes them to grow, or what they might look like in the end.

    Knotty Boy Dread Wax is an all natural formula that allows complete control over what the end result will be for your dreads. Short, long, pencil thin or Bob Marley boas, the power to create your dream-locks, literally, is in your hands. Knotty Boy Dread Wax utilizes the properties of pure, earthgrown ingredients to keep new locks looking tidy, while dramatically accelerating the natural locking process. Nothing 'fake' or unnatural happens when Knotty Boy Dread Wax is used to start and maintain dreadlocks. It simply helps make better locks, faster.

    In addition, this light, water-resistant formula binds hair together, allowing the scalp and hair to be washed like normal without the risk of losing fragile, new locks, yet naturally breaks down and washes out gradually with every hot, steamy shower when not reapplied.

    Knotty Boy Dread Wax is unique from other hair waxes because, while many claim they can be used on locks, they are often not designed specifically for them. Also, these products usually contain petroleum by-products which, like a tub of grease, can be nearly impossible to wash out of hair, are harmful to dreadlocks and are completely non-eco or body-friendly.

    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 easily apply, it's strong enough to bind locks together effectively until they are mature and ready to continue developing on their own into the lovely mane of locks you've always dreamed of.
