let me explain
option 1 your assumming backcomb would be the best option but its not twist and rip would be better
option 2 well parts are long enough to go natural now parts arent
option 3 waitting a month or 2 will gain u enough length to go natural however they wont be 'ready" by july
so we are left with options 4 and options 5
option 4 do twist and rip tomoro let it dread
go natural starting now in july be prepared to defend your decision to go natural at the u=interview
keep in mind last time i flew all the security checkers checking for bombs had turbans on the airports tend to accept cultural diversity i saw dreads working there too
so just defend your dreading decision with a well thought out statement and you should be fine
why r u waitting till then to apply?
Why would he not be able to get a job? or have less opportunities? course he will, they can always be tied back, Anyway its the person not the dreads. Ok everyone may not like dreads but not all people judge people wanting to look different, this can even help get you a job, shows you think out the box.
Anyways i would go natural as its so cool watching your hair change, let the hair, do its thing,enjoy your summer and ask the girl out:) I hope it goes well and keep us posted with your dreddy journey.
