Decided to get dreads.
I'm still pretty young and my hair is currently too short to dread but it grows pretty fast so I'm doing my homework on it now to get ahead. If I do dreads I want to know EXACTLY what I'm getting into. I've heard a lot of mixed opinions on it but I think I want to use Dreadhead wax. I saw some pretty good reviews on it and not much argument against it. Thoughts? I also decided on the backcombing method. Is this a good method for beginners? Also, I'm Caucasian, with slightly thin hair and it's slightly oily. Will this affect my dreading? Suggested length for dreading? I don't want them to stick out or look bad just because it's too short. I'm still in highschool so that would probably be bad. Suggestions? I'd appreciate any help or guidance.
