I've heard good things about using conditioner from a friend of mine (I'm under the impression to helps dry them out a little. And that's a big plus, because my hair is gross n' greasey) The thing is, his dreads are five years old, and mine are only a year old. And I just got my tips to not look like ass.
Would it be dreadlock seppuku to use some fake Paul Mitchelle (I think that's the name.) ..tea tree oil shampoo?
