Introduce Yourself

Hi! thankyou for setting up this amazing community my quest for dreads would have ended in disaster without it :)

first things first; I dont have dreads. im going to be doing it in july after my exams. afterwards so i have no distractions over the next weeks.

I am an 18 year old Englishman, a dedicated muscian and extremely looking forward to having dreadlocks. I want them due to aesthetic reasons, aswell as many of the muscians and people i aspire too have dreads (Anders Friden, Benji Webbe, Ilja Jalkanen amongst others) rather than religious or spiritual reasons (im the least spiritual person i know) but even so dreadlocks still represent a commitment which im pleased to go through.

At the moment im probably going to go with twist/rip + neglect dreads. After reading this site i will never let a drop of wax near my head (thank you!) which before hand I thought was the best and only method of making good dreads.

would anybody be able to answer some questions?

1. how strong are baby dreads? As a guitarist in a metal band i headbang alot! would this undo valuable dreading time?

2. how much hair length is generally lost once dreaded? my hair is as long as my lower back as i said and i aim to have kind of chunky, maybe medium sized dreads. if this question is impossible to answer then no worries! :)

Thanks again :)

Matt
