Im extremely new to this site and dreadlocks but i have some questions about starting my dreads.
At this point in time my hair is around 5 inches. im not sure exactly how long i should let it get before i dread it. sometimes just for fun i will make a single dread in my hair just for practice (using twist and rip) but whenever i do the dread sticks pretty much straight up. im not sure if thats a length issue or if i should just dread it and let them flatten themselves. in case it affects your oppinion i have very thick brown hair. the hair is also very coarse and knots easily.
any help you could give me would be very appreciated.
