I cant really tell from that picture but I think you need to keep growing your hair. I'd give it at least 6 months! When summer sets in and it gets hot and you still want to cut you still can but its winter. Its the best time to give it time. If you really want dreads then you will regret cutting it. Use a big tam or a thick headband to keep it out of sight and out of mind until your dreads have time to form. Its not that youre hair wont dread its that it hasnt yet. Im sure youve heard all about learning patience and dreads. My advice is take a deep breath and walk away from your reflection, like boiling water, just walk away.
Okay man, i was just like you, hated my curly hair, and it barely dreaded until like 8 months, then all of sudden boom i had locks. But you know what, perfection isn't what makes something so great, it's the perfect uniqueness.
Just be patient.
You may not have dreads tomorrow, or the day after, but when you do, their gonna be fucking awesome!
I suggest you wait.
Dude I say wait it out. My hair's about the same length as yours. Im at 7 months and have no knots in the back of my head at all. The only reason the front is, is because I twist and ripped it. All the back fell completely out, no sections or anything. It's just now starting to section slowly. As soon as I thought about re twist and ripping the back. That's basically cutting cause I would've started it all over. We can get through it together, lol.
I can understand why you're getting frustrated... I started dreading about 6 or 7 months ago when my hair was only like 4 or 5 inches and didn't have much progress in about3 months then I decided to brush out what knots were starting because I was looking for a job... now I've found a job I've started dreading and now my hairs about... 8 or 9 inches at a guess and its dreading quite quick and only started like just over 2 weeks ago and I have the straightest finest hair you can imagine...
So I would say to just carry on doing what you're doing. If you're not already then make yourself a wool cover for your pillow (mines made of acrylic so works just as well)... that's all I've been doing...
Good luck =]
