How do YOU lock your dreads?

Hey everyone,

My dreads are officially one year old (tomorrow), and they are well-formed, but are soft. I've been using sea salt in my bathwater and roll them biweekly (err....maybe a little less then that), but I see people on here with dreads the same age as mine/little older, and theirs seem to lock up better (?)

What's your secret?

Tips, tips, tips

So, there's plenty of stuff in the memories about rounding off your tips, but what if you want to go the other way and loosen 'em up? I saw a friend of mine today who's dreads I love and I realized one of the things I really like about them is the loose tips. Should I just go at it with a comb and take my time? Has anyone attempted this?

Heylo peoples!

Hi there!

I'm Lem, and I have had my dreadz for about 5 years or so. I used to have yarn braided into them to make it look like dreadz originally, but I got so fed up with trying to undo the braids every time my hair needed dying that I left them in and grew dreadz for real. 

I love them, which is great considering I always swore I would never do the dreaddy with my hair. Now I cant imagine myself without them.

Anyway, here's a pic of me and the hair, taken this evening in my bathroom, hence the poor lighting!!

So, apart from the intro, I just wanted to say hello, and what a bunch of fabulous dreadheadz you guys are!!

Much love  :)
