To whomsoever sees this, hello.

In November 2014, i decided to go for the ''free form, neglect'' dread method, its has almost been a year now and im wondering if my horrible dreadlocks are supposed to look like this:

Those are not all i have, i have have afew more dreads, well, i cant call them dreadlocks yet since theyre still growing and maturing and what not. I would be very happy and thankful for respone and help. Thank you.

Totally normal for freeform/neglect method, especially if you have fine hair.  Most of mine wound up doing something like that, tails and all, then formed medallions.  Many of the medallions have narrowed out over time (they'll be 2 years old in December) and some still have tails that are slowly dreading up in to the base of them.  

If you absolutely don't like them, consider palm rolling your dreads while they are damp after washing to help them along.  I've thought about it and done it once or twice, but I feel that it defeats the purpose of letting them just be natural.  Remind yourself that it's part of the process. It's a lesson in patience.  <3
