thick dreads are about an inch but 1/2 to 1 incj are faitly thick just when sectioning judge size by the area at the roots not by the thickness of the baby dread since they will start thin and thicken up to the root section size ovrr time

if all are 1 inch though they look too made so vaery the sizes with9n a range for a more blended natural look
like mine most were real thin only 3 were about an inch with about 10 at 1/2 inch

actualy u dont want them too even a mix of sizes looks more blended less silly and fake your haor will section itself in the 1st couple weeks and then if sections are too big split them

anything penscil size or larger will be plenty strong

we have never seen anyone happy from salon dreads well wait..just 1 but she was on tv so had a ton to almost all salon dreads are a total disaster usualy started over within 3 weeks yo 3 months and costing hundreds even over 1000 just to have to start over right

welcome sister
why donty u save your money and freeform
trust in natures styling abilities
nature will make better dreads then asny salon ever could

and umm why would u trust a salon over yourself?
styling abilities?
huh? its just choosing a sectio9n size and twisting em
u cant figure that out?
but your better off going freeform from the start
