Well just like three months ago I decided to try out some dreads. But the thing is, before i had grew dreads, my hair was in an uneven afro, like the hair on top was much shorter and thinner than the hair in the back. And when I go to the salon to retwist them, they seem much more shorter, are they gonna grow by any chance???

From what I've learned from this site, yeah they get a lot tighter and shorter the first months then slowly get length.

sure it'll grow'] but skip the salon, just let them grow and keep them separated. They'll look super all layered. Dreads shrink as they tighten

stop defining "looking good" by salons standards salons push salon dreads look like your diseased with all the scalp showing

dreads should be left alone washed and seperated thats all they just look good naturaly

if you keep going the scalp around them gets traumatized the roots weakened thety can break you canget traction alopecia and even baldness

wash..seperate any that try to join thats all

Have you ever noticed that when you get your braided it shrinks a little? Well the same things happen when you twist dreads because they are all forming together. They are not going to be as long as your original hair unless you are caucasian and follow the method that they do. Just relax and let them grow stop worrying. Im not going to tell you to avoid getting them retwisted at a salon but you do not need to go often. If you do go wait until you have two inches of new growth.
