I've been wanting dreads for a while but have been waiting patiently for my hair to grow longer because it's still too short for my liking (a few inches past my shoulders). However, I have some pictures of dreads that I love and was wondering if you guys could help me figure out the methods used in making them and how old the dreads look to be. I know this is probably a lot to ask because I'm new here- I seriously just signed up for dreadlockssite about five minutes ago- but I'm very excited to learn and hope that someone will be willing to help me Oh, and if you don't really know how to answer my questions for some of the pictures but you do for others, please just help me with the ones you can!
Here's the first picture: Also for this one, should I dye/bleach my hair before dreading?
