I've been hearing that salt water is good to get a rougher texture and get your hair to lock up, but I was wondering what I could expect from using a salt water solution, how I should use it, and if it will cause my scalp to dry out and get itchy.

what it seems most people do is mix sea salt into a warm spary bottle, some put lemon in it or other, and spray it onto to their dreads be4 rinsing it out after about 15mins,

if you live near the beach that helps 2, I live in florida in a town next to the beach so i just went there alot in my early months and it helped my locks alot. it gives them a dryer texture,
it can itch *not horribly* but some other scalps may react differently to the salt and cause an itchier feeling.
it was never bad for me though, and washes out fairly easy.
Thanks, man! That's just what I needed to know!

i use sea salt mixed with warm water, lavender oil, and tea tree oil in a spray bottle ... it helps alot ...

be aware though ... don't spray it near your scalp ... the salt can irritate badly ... AND today when i was going through my hair the solution that got on my hands left me with what looked like a chemical burn ... my knuckles were so red and burning! so see, you definitely don't want to get it on your scalp. :)

going to the beach is a whole nother story ... i never had a problem with the salt on my scalp
Sea water is roughly only about 5% alkalinity, so you prolly wouldn't wanna mix your salt water much srtonger. Maybe one part sea salt to 20 parts water.

I used salt water but it came straight from the sea. Left it in for a day or two, it really helped.

definitely this,
using anymore than that could be pretty bad in terms of itching,

I would like to clarify I live and go to the beach all the time so my opinion might be a little biased since I'm used to how it feels, just go easy on the salt,
it wont burn bad if u use just a lil salt and alotta water
try a taste test it sould be kinda salty but not extremely
u dont need alot
