ah those babies are long enough to have all kinds of fun with them! just take an hour to sit infront of a mirror and try tieing them back in all sorts of different ways, just find out what looks good on you.

i have short dreads to. i had long hair, then decided to cut it, then dread.. stupid idea. now i'm dealing with dreads from 1 inch long, to like 4 inches long. i have a wrap that i got put in, it goes down to my midback and i use it as a hair tie. its strange how quick the wrap dread has grown, and i notice them growing faster. my dreads also looped around and sucked inside themselves. i keep slightly worrying, but they're just gonna take time, and look sick as hell

Compared to bits of loose hair I have my dreads are about half the length. From the pic it's looking like you could lose a few more inches from shrinkage. I'm still waiting on the length so I can tie them up like soaring eagle said so right now I always keep a headband on it.

I have fairly short locks, my longest locks just touch the collar of my tee shirts. I usually wear them half up in pig tails, or all up in short piggy tails, or a half ponytail. . . my favorite is when I make like a wreath out of thick hemp and weave fake flowers into it and wear it kind of like a headband. It's very "hippie goddess" and looks awesome with a nice cotton sundress =]

I was just about to post this question, so thanks. Great ideas here.

I've been trying to think of a way to wear my hair to my husband's pinning (he was selected for Chief in the U.S. Navy and it's a really big deal). I think I'll try two little pig tails with an ivory lace-ish handkerchief. Fun!

LOL! I have really short hair that dreading and to short to do anything with but to cover them with a tam or bandana from time to time but honestly, I don't care if my hair is a mess and I could care less of what ppl think out loud or to themselves about how my hair looks! Locally I have only had 1 person ask if I was trying to grow dreads while other ppl say wash and brush your hair! I say thank you but I do wash my hair but refuse to brush or comb it and then they say nasty! How is it nasty when my hair is prolly cleaner than theirs?! LOL!
