I suggest letting them form naturally. All you really need to do is wash with dread soap (I use Dr bronners) and seperate when the dreads start forming into eachother. You could start by using twist and rip, that will help section your hair
Howeever TnR usually unravels during the first few washes write on my page if you have questions!!
well u can start goin natural at bald it might not drfead till 6 inches but then some dread shi]orter yoir hair might be extra easy to dread
u can tmr at 4 technicaly but it almost certainly wont stay in 5 is alot more likely to staty in so really not far off from the 6 that will dread on its own
If you choose to go to a salon, be aware they will probably use wax and perhaps a hook to crochet.
Wax WlLL hold in smells, cause staining on pillow cases and cloths (shoulders), and hold in pockets of water, causing mold to set in.
Crochet method by salons breaks hundreds of hairs pulling the hook through the hair several times. In the long run it will amount to dreads breaking off due to all the broken hairs. Like the weakest link in a chain.
Whatever way you do go, look up all the pros and cons. The pros to natural or twist & rip is that they are free, clean, won't stain clothes and will last a life time if wanted. The only con is that they take time.
Dreads in the first few months should be washed every 2-3 days, if a salon tells you not to wash for weeks(and ask before they start), just remember that unwashed dreads are nasty and stinky.
