Will my dreads come out to be thick using this method?

Well basically I'm going to begin my journey and I'm using the braid method(if thats correct)? But I was just wondering like my title because I'm into the thicker ones. So yeah Im just wondering how long and how thick do you think the dreads will be when they're fully matured. This has been sitting in my head for nearly 3 and a half weeks just washed them before I took the pics...

P.S. also I was wondering if there's any tips you guys can give me on thickening them

looks more like 2 strand twists then braids
if so it will lock but should loosen up 1st
they will get as thick as the roots sections
if u want thicker take em out let em go natural or let em combine when mature
ok but what if I do leave these in and let them semi-free form?
they will thicken up to the size at the roots
once its mature u can let a few combine if u want
ok thank you
My dreads started from braids. I am over two years in and they are fully locked.

i haven't seen braids turn into dreadlocks.. soaringeagle has said he's seen it a couple times but they never really locked.

the hair needs to be loose to form knots. braiding keeps it stationairy which makes that impossible.. i could be wrong tho. anyone else have a second opinion?
If you want your locs really thick and juicy, combine them now. That's what I am dealing with.
I have let a few of my dreads combine on their own and some I twisted together to make thicker since they were too thin to begin with for me. Also, your twists will condense a little as they mature so keep that in mind.
Well Idk if you've taken a look at my pics but do they seem really thin for starters? but anyways the sections for these roots are around half a inch if not more.
About a year. I wish I had good pics to show but my picture taking ability sucks.
However, I know that some people's take longer than that.

cool thanks for lettin me kno! ill pass it on. how long did it take for your braids to mature?
1/2 inch is average size 1 inch pretty thick i wouldnt go over an inch so u might as well let em do what they do see how much they thicken up over time

How thick do you want them to be?
Normally the size of the parts will determine the size of the loc but that is not always the case.
Your hair texture and density will play a role in size.
Lastly, if you intend to semi-freeform, what maintenance will you be doing? Are you going to twist because that will thin up your locs more.
