I Found a video on youtube that recomends rubbing fresh lemon juice in yout dreads. They said that it helps pull in loose hairs (locking up new fuzzies) and of course gives your locks that lemon-ey fresh scent. I would love to hear any advice on this. :)

I've done it a couple of of times and it does make dreads feel nice and a little tighter. But it's really nothing magical. You could probably get more benefit out of salt water.If you decide to use it, keep in mind that if exposed to the sun it will lighten your hair(very little at a time) so if you don't want that then I don't recommend it.Also If you use it, make sure you strain out ALL of the pulp or else your have little pulpy things all over your head :P

Ive used salt water towards the beginning of dreading but didnt care for it. I just have some spots that refuse to dread lol.
