What is the average amount of dreadlocks for thin hair?

My hair is very thin and I think I have about 70 small ones but I'm just not sure how much I like them. I kind of wish I had less and have bigger ones but I'm not sure if it would look goofy or not O.o

So I'm just curious how many other people have!

i have thin hair but i have no idea how many i have so far. mine are sectioning into pretty small section. i'm not to keen on them being so small either. i have a few bigger ones that are developing much better. i just figure i'll let some congo later. i don't want too few though because i'm afraid i'll have too much scalp showing.

Yeah I'm worried about showing too much scalp too. Some of the ones in the back are looking pretty nice but all the ones in the front that I made out of my bangs are super small. I'm thinking about maybe grabbing like two of them and doing a hair wrap around the two and hopefully form it into one. If it works I might do it to a few more. I just wish I had thick hair lol:(

me, too! just remember the hair will shrink and thicken up as it knots so they will get fatter. i'm only 8 months into my natural journey and far from that happening any time soon.

i have thin hair..and hold on let me count them for the first time in a year..so i have thirty eight dreads, im not phased by it really..my hair is my hair, i have allot of congos. When i began i had fifty. I mean, i would like to have more, but yknow, these dreads are the dreads im sposed to have, this is my hair, so why worry?
