How to dreads like this? (other questions)

Hello,

I'm a eighteen year old male college student. I know very little about dreads, but they are always something i've always wanted to do with my hair. I want to do something very similar if not identical or a tiny bit longer than the dreads in this picture. First question: How long would my hair need to be (before I dread) to get dreads these length. Second Question: What would I tell the hairdresser I wanted. So I guess I'm also asking what kind are these and what would I ask for.

Thanks for the help.

1 you do not go to a hairdresser for dreads..ever 2  those itshard to tell but are either nartural ir backcombed

3 you will never get dreads like anyone elses all dreads are unique and should be unique  well except severely damaged salon dreads wich all look tyhe same and those clearly are not salon dreads

 read the dreaducation page

to get dreads..stop combing start washing with a tdread shampoo at 6 inches it will dread

alrternately at 5 inchesu can tnr (twist and rip) or backcomb  no products  no tools only a dread shampoo

dreads take time and wont look like thatfor a good 6-8 months

I don't want to do the natural approach. I would rather go get them done.

the absolute worse mistake you can make is going to a hairdresser for dreads

because they do everything wrong  eitherusewax  or crochet or other extremely damaging methods   they tell u not to wasgh for uo to a year  and have you come back over and over for retightening and maintenence all because the methids they use  make it harder not easier to dread

exactly cause they do everything wrong theyt are trained to create 'instadreads' that are severely damaged or  caked in wax  they  crochetyso they dont even begin to dread for 6 months then take 3 years to recover

in african americans they  cause balsding on purpose

 

these are examples of salon dreads

notice the last 1 thety are actively tightening them in the photo despite the severe balding they caused by tightening them

 

 

 now heres natural dreads done with zero knowledge

 

 

all i knew was to stop combing
