Hi, I've been developing dreads using Sponge method(only used water-based gel in the early stages), finger twisting and just conditioning my hair w/ coconut oil for about 4 months now and making pretty good progress so far. Although I probably won't have to deal with this until quite a bit into the future because my hair has always been slow to grow, I love the short dreads look more than long dreads and it just suits me(also easier to get away with from my dad). As much as this site is against salons, when my dreads are more matured and start to get too long to my liking(probably no longer than eyebrow level) would it be fine to go to a salon to get my dreads clipped, re-twisted to prevent potential unravelling without damaging them since I always hear that being a problem with cutting dreads. Hopefully it'd never get to that point because I always struggled getting an Afro before but if it did would it be a bad idea?
