so i'm thinking, next time i do dreads, i'm gunna make a dense sea salt wash, square off with rubber bands, drench them in it, blow dry, backcomb, tie em off, wash out the sea salt, take out top bands, spray with less dense salt water, rub roots oftan. yea? i took em out the first time because i wanted them fatter. 3 hours with my head in the tub and half a bottle of conditioner. btw, my hair had never looked so good afterwards.
