Question about the neglect method

How short is "too short" to begin this method? I read somewhere that length can affect how well your hair will dread. My hair is jaw length on top and underneath about 4 inches. Is that too short? Just curious! :)

My hair is even shorter, about 3-4 inches (top only). I'm about 2 months in now, and well its goofy :)

Makes me worry that its not going to turn out how I expect. My hair is super curly and instead of seperating it has formed ringlets. To look at my hair you'd think it was only a half inch length, but if I pull a piece you can see its much longer.

I guess with such short hair I'm in for the long haul.

most hair will dread at 6 inches (straight niot ideal hair) kinky hair will dread real short

some will dread at 2-4 inches (more typical is 6 thoo)

many ppl start from bald or short but ..you night ot see dreading till its longer

long hair dreads fast but shrinks more

Hi Kai. Last time I dreaded my hair was a little longer than chin length and it worked ok, I just did not like the results so I decided to give it a rest and try again. My hair is now to my jaw. We won't have luxurious long dreads for a long time but at least they will be started :)
