spray bottle shenanigans...

Well today I finally got around to using sea salt on my dreads (which turn 16 weeks old tomorrow). I actually used a sea salt-lemon-water mix on my hair right before I dreaded....but being my genius self, I left the bottle sitting around while some type of fungus colonized the bits of lemon pulp from when I juiced it. SOOOOO I freaked out, washed my hair like 3 times in a row to make sure none of that crap was growing in there, and set the bottle aside for a few months.

I finally decided to try salt again (minus the lemon) so I soaked the bottle in a mild bleach to kill anything that might be left, and I just used it today after washing my hair. SOOOO I guess the point of this extremely long post is to ask who uses sea salt, and how much they use on their dreads. I dissolved about 1/4 of a teaspoon of salt in 125 mL of water, and sprayed about 75 mL of that...who knows how much actually ended up in my hair.
