Salt water?


Dread Maintenance

So I've been spraying my dreads with a mix of just water and table salt, it seems to help, but it also adds frizz. Is there any actual proof that salt water works? And also I'm constantly rubbing and palm rolling my dreads, I have really textured curly hair, should I keep doing this or leave them alone. If I do stop will they start to look better and how long will it take?

Curly dreads


Dread Maintenance

Thanks! I've got to work on my patience I guess, haha

think i just replied to your other thread, however I went thru the same thing, my tips had curly spirals for awhile be4 they either curled up on each other forming their own blunt tips, or they just broke apart and turned into normal looking tips,

also my roots were loose for months, if anything my 4-6ish months was the hardest/most frustrating time for me but i saw huge improvements as the months passed by, yes your roots will/should be loose, that will be one of the last things to lock up though.

if it helps you can see my timeline and how it changed throughout the months, but I recommend hangin in there, good luck :)

Curly dreads


Dread Maintenance

Thanks! I haven't waxed in a while but that was just because I was too lazy, but I guess it turned out well. It's pretty hard for me not to touch them constantly, but Ill leave them alone now that I know

Curly dreads


Dread Maintenance

I had very curly hair before I got dreads and now the dreads are still curling and twisting. Also they seem to be getting frizzy and loose, how do I stop this while also making the tips not curly? And is it normal for the roots to be loose? I've had them for three months and I feel like they should be looking better
