like the title says my dreads are extremely short...

excruciatingly short...

but they're locking up fine and i was just wondering how fast they grow after they compleatly lock.

also if anyone has had experience with short dreads give me some tips por favor!

Your hair shrinks when it locks up - so it get short before it gets longer...and then over time it periodically shrinks and grows long. Grin it bear it haha - one day you'll have the problem that your dreadlocks get stuck in your arm pits becaue they are too long or you always think someoen is touching your ass (when it's really just your hair that *somehow* got long).
