I just got back from NYC ( went to a salon to get twists and style) and I realized how badly I have accrued some lint. I have heard that the tea method (spray locks with tea, I did a few strands with oolong tea and I don't know if I have the patience. My aunt recommended a brush and some olive oil (her dreads are down to her waist) and she wears a stocking like almost all the time. I took some pictures but they are not the best quality and I am bad with angles. But it is really bad like nothing but white dots. Back in the city I wore a bonnet to sleep. I don't use wax and usually go to natural salons if I have to go. Im thinking of going to a salon and getting them dyed. Anyone know any tips?f I have to go.
