Totally, dead straight hair. What do?
I use a little lemon juice between washings. It makes them feel really good. I only do 1-2 times a week. Then again I've only been dreaded for a week and a half so I've only done it twice so far
If you do use it make sure you strain out all the pulp. I didn't do that the first time and had little bits of pulp on my hair xPSalt water is what really does the trick though. It dries out the hair and makes it knot faster. I spray my hair with salt water after I wash and it makes them tighten back up after loosening up in the shower.Chris Rimmer said:

lem0onjuice i find makes em soft and it can lighten them in the sun i think what u meant was sea salt sea salt does help a bit some ppl add lemon juice to the sea salt but im not really sure why or if it really helps
u can experiment but sea salt is what ya want to get em knotty
I'd read somewhere that it helps the locks tighten, then again my memory works in retarded ways and might have confused lemon juice with citrus (found in many dread 'helper' products) versus salt water. If that makes sense... But yeah. How do you mean it tends to make them softer? Are we on about a smoother, less wirey kinda soft or a loose, likely-to-fall-apart kind of soft? I like having lighter hair anyway (half of why I like summertime =D) so that's a bonus. Also, for the salt I'm guessing the best way is to rinse the dreads in salty water?
Sorry for the deluge of questions, but I don't want another wasted attempt =D
