freshly combed hair!


General Questions

So, as I posted a few days ago, I was starting over due to a horrible start with my dreads Here's my hair, freshly combed out and trimmed. I know from what I've read that I only need 6 inches to start natural, but for some reason I feel like my hair isn't long enough lol. Yes, it's well over 6 inches. I guess I'm just nervous as to whether or not my hair looks like it's a good length to start neglect. Should I let it get longer first for good results?

Okay cool! Maybe I'll just make sure and congo any that I plan on doing while they're still loose enough that they'll just tangle right up the whole length. Seems like they might knot together easier that way

Oh yeah, one more sectioning question I had. What if my hair starts to section itself into skinny sections, while I want fatter sections? Is there a way early on to encourage fatter sections, or would I have to just try and congo them?

A lot of my parts/sections fuzzes over too with my last dreads, I just didn't know how much it would with a full length part. Good to know that it isn't too noticeable. Thanks everyone :)

I also have a cowlick. Actually two. One in the front, and one in the back, and forcing sections like I did with the first set was a bad idealol

I guess a part wouldn't be so bad. Especially once it starts fuzzing over and wasnt straight. I've even thought of parting my hair way over on the side, then once it starts to dread just flip the hair over it. Idk if that'd work though, or if it'd be hard to lay the hair a different way once it starts to dread. But I guess I'll accept and love them whatever they do. I'm so excited to start this new, fresh journey!

Okay, that's what I thought with the sectioning/separating. I just didn't know if I left them fatter if they'd try and split at the roots and try and be two dreads. I guess I'll just cross that bridge when the time comes. Thanks so much everyone. Man I wish I'd have found this site before I started last time, when I HAD unfortunately already found the other "dread" sites :(THIS is an amazing site!!!

Okay cool! I feel so weird asking, because I've had this set id dreads for a while, but going the neglect route just seems so foreign and new to me, so I almost feel like a first-timer lol. With neglect am I still able to control the size, or should I separate only where they're trying to separate? I kinda want some fatter ones this time :)

One more question, and I'm sure it's in the forums somewhere, but my phone limits my browsing lol. How do I know where/when to separate?
