I was wondering what the average number of dreads people have. I split some congos and have 32. Just like to have an idea of the average.

I had 46 when I started. Cut 1 for overtwisting, & combined 2 in the front that were thin & wouldn't lock. So I should have 44.

bout that actually

they range from 1 to over 400

over 400 is crazy

1 is massive and hard to care for

20-40 is what many have up to 75-80 isnt uncommion

but id guess 38 is pretty much about the average..

I am with Dizzie here. I started with 116. Tried to count a second time but decided to just not worry about it anymore.

I started with 23 and combined a bunch to form 12. now I've got a few babies forming on top of my head, so in the end I'll have 15.

Anywhere under 20, and hey start to get really fat and a little harder to care for. 15 is the max I want, but washing and drying is harder. You have to be extra sure all of the soap is out. Last time I washed a few hours into drying I felt some left over residue and had to jump back into the shower and rerinse them.

drying time's grow exponentially as they get thicker too. I have to squeeze out all of the water from each lock while still in the shower, and then squeeze more out with a towel, then use a blow drier to make sure before I let them air dry the rest of the way. It can take 10 minutes before I am ready to let them air dry. But I have always wanted super fat locks, so its worth it for me.

But not everyone wants fatties. I;d say between 28-38 is pretty normal
