The things that can be said about letting your dreadlocks form are:
1. keep your hair "washed" on a regular basis.
2. Separate/pull dreadlocks away from each other. Doing this will give you some choice on how thick the sections are.
3. Go outside and enjoy the wind. Dreadlocks form because the wind creates the tangles which become matted knots and ultimately form your dreadlocks.
For any ignorant remarks you may receive tell people "Dreadlocks are the ultimate end of wind blown hair." They'll shut up fast.
