What I meant with 'decreasing' was that one doesn't have to wait for the hair to have a certain length, as short as half an inch will suffice.
Well, there is nothing "great" about evenly sized dreads as such, just a matter of taste is what it boils down to. For me, its basic curiosity; I just want to know how my head would look like...as I've mentioned, I've had the freeform experience, now I want to try things differently.
As an earlier commentator mentioned, many black people believe to appear more presentable and/or professional with evenly sized dreads, so I guess that is a factor to be taken into consideration when asking oneself why people want such a style..
Oh, and I've started the "mindless twiddling", so the rubbing has decreased furthermore
