I had an idea that if I take a bottle and fill it up full of sea-salt and pour some on my head and rinse it out in the shower. Would this help lock up my dreads? This is real sea salt and not table salt.

umm well thye way you worded it you said fill the bottle with sea salt and pour it over your headas in straight dry sea saltthats not exactly goodwhat ya wanna do is a solutionsay an average size spray bottle add 2 tablespoons about then the rest water.. shake itt up wellu can either spray it on or dip dreads intry not to get much on the scalp as it can become iritatingits good idea to rinse after awhile (hour or 2) but some leave it on for days..i dont recomend that thoughthis is a basic homemade dreadlock accelerator(bad word really, dreads originaly became popular amung caucasion surfers because the salt water made dreades so hard to avoid)

I use the same solution with the sea salt and water and I spray it on after I wash my dreads, I have always just left it in though.

just realized this was in introduce yourself, so i moved it to products (could have fit in general questions as well, but since most "products" stressed here are home made i figured it fit best here
