So, people will say you dont really need to make a homemade locking accelerator, but i dont think my hair would have dreaded without the use of this stuff. I have super oily, thin, dead-straight hair and i could never get it to knot up properly. So I will throw this recipe in to help any newbies who may have experienced the same problem as I did. But dont forget, nothing is better than going for a real dip in the ocean!Ingredients:Hot water, juice from 1 lemon, 2-3tbs sea salt, squirt bottleMethod:add the juice of one lemon to a sprayer bottle full of warm to hot water and 2 to 3 tablespoons of sea salt, shake well, and spray a few times a week. Spray only on your locks, not on your scalp, and be sure to be careful and adjust the solution to your needs. If you make it too strong, you'll burn your scalp and dreads off! It is great to spray on before you go out in the sun too as it works better.

I'd say an hour or two. If you leave it on for days it can make your scalp really itchy. I mean salt corrodes metal.Sputnik1045 said:
