    i hav had dreads nearly 6 months now and theyre barely knotting up cos i have bad hair for dreading. well for about a month iv been washing my hair with sea salt mixed in water cos i know its good for dreads but i always leave the sea salt water in and just dry my hair...is it better to rinse it afterwards or just leave it like i do??

    help is appreciated

    oh yes a huge change it rly helps. i spent an hour today palm rolling most of my dreads and rubbed a few into tiny balls at the end to stop them "fraying" at the bottom

    You sound like you've got the same kind of hair as me mate. I've had mine about 6 months and mine look quite similar to yours. I've got loads of strays and frizz but they are getting there slowly but surely. I use lemon juice and sea salt mixture. Makes your hair super gritty and shit.. try giving that a go. I've been using for the past month and it's helped loads..

    since you have blond hair, it won't matter. but if you use lemon juice and then go out in the sun, it sortof bleaches your hair

    i use lemon in the sea salt too! and i acually hav darkish brown hair but looks light in the day. when its warmer im going to put lemon juice on all my tips and lay out in the sun for a day...should look cool = )

    what i was thinking though as far as lemon juice was to juice like, just one dread. so ones blonde and the others are dark. i think that would be kinda cool

    yeah. try buying from america. you gotta pay customs and crap. plus, it takes more dollars.

    If you did that now it would really help your hair knot up. I've bleached a few of mine and they're absolutley solid. Be careful though, bleach destroys your hair one of my tips fell off the other day while i was rubbing it haha.

    Probably the best plan man haha. I'm done bleaching 'em now. All about beads, wool and assorted crap i can find! Think i might be ready to take some pictures of mine now, feeling a lil more confident about mine now. Gonna give that a go when i get in from work :D
