dreads darkening is easy with just a lil black tea sprayed on and bonus any lint u have showing disapears!
i had a whole lot of lint in mine from dragging on the ground, picking at the lint to try getting it out was doing alot of damage to my dreads so i stopped. i decided to either live with it or dye it but i hated the idea of store bought dye
then i remembered mountainnwillow or someone posted in 1 of the herbs threads about using tea to darken dreadlocks

so this morning i made up a weak batch of tea (not going for real dark just to match my own color) and sprayed it all over my dreads
and all that ugly white lint disapeared!
im leaving it on overnight and washing my dreads tomorow and hoping they stay this way
if not i'll try 1 more time with a stronger tea

i tried some on a grey beard dread just to see if it worked but didnt seem to make all that much difference so im guessing to go from grey to brown would take alot of applications
but for just a subtle difference and a way to blend lint in it seemed to work very well..
i'll update after i wash em tomoro maybe with pics too

what da blakk tea juss coats it or removez it?
colors it to match the dread its become a part of the dread inseperable without tearing hairs up
well after a deep clean washing it seems the color stayed the fuzz and lints almost 100% unnoticable with just a couple minor touchups maybe needed
before the lint stood out was very vissible and was a hell of alot of it now if u look real close u can barely see a couple lil barely noticible spots
im pretty happy with how well it worked
awesome! yea I used to use black and rosemary teas to help darken my hair naturally and it works by tinting the hair over time. I haven't done it in a while, and was actually noticing some lint from a white towel I used this week when drying them. Lint is such a PITA. LOL!
yeah I did this once, because I had previously bleeched my hair and decided I wanted my natural hair colour back so I used a dark brown dye on the bleeched hair to see if it would work and it went grey! So I washed over some black tea and went a ash/dark blonde :) I'm thinking of doing it again to see if the blonde will totally come out cause now my dreads are like half brown half blonde :P
That actually sounds really pretty! How long does the tinting last? It must wash out eventually...? And how much tea do you use? I've never heard of this before.

Well, I'm not too sure... Errm I'd say a few washes :) It only darkened it a tad bit, so it went back a normal colour instead of this weird fake grey :P You can see in my pics that the blonde bits are back blonde now, but compared to how they used to be it seems to have kept them a tad darker :) I used like 2 cups of tea basically. If you do it let me know, would love to know how it goes :D

So the lint is still in there?? Doesn't that kind of bother you? 

no..why should it?

almost every day you have belly button lint that your completelpy unaware of untill you pick it out does it bother you while its there? no youir not even aware its there

right now theres a billion or so microscopic mites crawling all over yoiur skin but do they bother you? no your not even aware they arethere

why should something bother you just for being there?

This is a useful piece of knowledge. My hair was highlighted before I dreaded. I would use this method if my dark roots look trashy with my blonde locks. I plan on never using carcinogenic chemicals on my hair/body again for as long as i can help it.
