Advice please - are my dreads forming too thick?
If you have new dreads that do have an inch thick base how much thicker will they become when they are mature?

Thank you again for the help man your great I have another question for you though. I recently heard that you can sew your loose hairs into the closest dread to help encourage the loose hairs to stay in the lock. But that just sounds like a less invasive way of crocheting. Is this a practice that should be avoided at all costs also or if I do it just once will it be ok?
What up man? You'll still have your curly hair for a while I think if not for always. I'm Puerto Rican and Portuguese and my loose hair is very curly like ringletts from scalp to ends. I'm 4 months in right now and my tree roots are coming along pretty fast, probably because I had curly hair to begin with. My ends are loose instead of blunted and I want to keep them that way because of the way they curl. I say go for it and don't worry about it, your curls won't go anywhere.
I count myself very very blessed to have my little family. My wife supports me no matter what I choose to do including locking up my hair. My daughter, when she was little didn't like the idea of letting my hair dread but now that she's older and I've been growing my roots for a few months now she's chill with it! She says they remind her of Tarzan and she's mad quick to jump to my rescue if anyone has anything negative to say. I love my Bears
Well damn, reading this kinda makes me worry man, I'm four months in and other than some loose hair around my face and a patch at the very back of my head my hair is already formed and I only have 18. I started mine as twists but then they fell apart and re formed themselves. I have three of them that are congos but they are super attached. So the thought of separating them doesn't sound good. I just figured any new growth I'd get would sort it out and eventually I'd get more. One of my congos grew super weird though man like the section is a rectangle. Should I worry or just keep it going?
