Thanks Barrellady! I started out with all the wrong ideas unknowingly, completing 10-15 back combed dreads, and 5 or so TNRs. I then found dreadlockssite, thankfully, and have done nothing more than shampoo, rinse, and separate, separate, separate ever since. I'm about 5 months into my dreading journey and I definitely have sleepy head dreads. I've been trying to sleep on the opposite side recently more often than not, easier said than done!So it's totally normal that the top of my hair is not dreading like the underneath yet, but mostly sectioning? I keep wondering when the it will start to happen there more. The natural dreads that have started all choose to start in strange places too, right in the center of the section, towards the end, or the top. I am really excited for the day I will finally have the dreads I have been waiting for for 15 years, and actually working towards for 5 months now. I expect it will be at least a year. O, and some, like my very 1st naturally formed lock, are much different in length from each other as well...very interesting, I feel like I am wearing a story. I love to read!Awesome, awesome tips, hope anyone new or browsing reads them! Thanks again. Peaces ;)-Crunchymummy

Thanks, I am glad the tips helped ease any worries you may have had. Once your dreads are mature, they will be the same length if they started out the same length. They are just shrinking at different times. It all works out in the end. Enjoy the rest of your "story"....peace

This was very informative and reassuring. I've been feeling self conscious about how messy my dreads are. But yeah,patience is something I'll try and improve my self in :)
