Improving your grip is an important aspect of weight training but it is always a bottle neck with exercises where you have to lift serious amounts of weight. Doing forearm exercises can improve your grip, but only to a to certain extent. For exercises like deadlifts or even weighted pull-ups, you can never match the gripping power and the weight to be lifted.
The weight you can potentially lift is always greater than the weight you can comfortably grip. It is that simple. One solution is to use better gloves with rubber padding to improve the friction between the barbell/dumbell and the hand. The second, inevitable solution is to use lifting straps.
I was against their use back in the days but from personal experience, I saw great improvements in my lift when I started using them. Also, your wrists are sparred and chances of wrist injury are reduced dramatically. To sum it all up. There's no alternative to a great grip so go for exercises that build better forearms. However, this won't be a permanently solution so you'll ultimately have to switch to lifting straps. That's what I reckon.
