Cutting/Trimming Bottom part of hair?? 5 months in Rip n' Tear Method

Yesterday was my 5 month dreadieversary! I've got lots of shrinkage and unevenness.

I know that this is normal.

BUT, has anyone ever trimmed their hair to even it out while it goes through this stage? And if so, does it mess anything up?? I don't want to screw them up, but I reaaaaallly want to trim some of them! My sister does hair for a living, but doesn't have experience with dreads so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

Yeah what he said. Your hair's not done shrinking and that hair will be pulled up over time. They're just babies don't cut em!

It's looking great! Mine are at 6+ months and are like that in the back, all zig-zagged up and down. Just hang in there, they will catch up. ;-)
