There is a myth that is still common. It is that beeswax is essential to locking hair. Nothing could be further from the truth. Beeswax may get you started, but you will start on the wrong foot.
Beeswax is heavy, and hard if not impossible to wash out. Even when most of it is washed out, it usually leaves a sticky film on your hair that dulls it. Its stickiness can attract lint, dust, and debris, all of which take away from the appearance of your locks and will cause them to look unkempt. These are just a few reasons not to use beeswax.
Many people who have used it and tried to wash it out have found themselves destroying their forming locks in an attempt to remove the stuff from their hair.
Avoid beeswax like the plague!
