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 head
as in straight dry sea salt thats 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)
well in that case yes it will help ya dread like crazy
make it about the same as sea water
a dip in the ocean will do ya good anyday
with dreads natural as can be is the rule, so as closely as u can imitate nature is best
if i was able to wash mine in a stream all the time i would (or waterfall would be heavenly)
in nature u might pound the pulp out of some leaves to wash with so when u cant do that the best alternatives are herbs and oils from natural sources
(i guess im maybe a hypocrite tho cause what the hecks baking soda made of? i dont think it grows on treees)
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.
