I agree with dreadymom. If that's what u want to do, go for it. I did mine and really like it alot. To me, it kinda gives my dreads a head start and makes them easier to manage( ex. pull back in pony tail). It was also kinda fun to do. It's nice to have the option to lengthen like that and they blend so seamlessly.dreadymom marla said:
i think everyone has a different take on their dreads. I have mine because i love the way they look and i love how i can be creative with them, and in turn, it turned into a little journey for me. i dont exactly believe in the same opinions as soaring eagle or the other first two or three posts, basically all the negative ones. I actually just got extensions myself. i have about 10-12 inch long dreads that are mine, and I actualy fell into a set of human hair dreads that i did not have to pay big bucks for, nor did i want to make them myself, so i crocheted them in 2 days ago and they look incredible. I dont pose to be a person who has grown them longer, nor will i ever be that person. My dreads will be 1-yr old in november, and im not gonna lie about it. i also will be up front and honest with whomever asks me about my dreadlocks. i will tell them straight up that they are half mine and half human hair extensions. i love them ... and when they are long enough to about where i really wanted, then i can get the extensions out and have my original locks at the perfect length. everyone has a different opinion, and I think that is A-OKAY!!!!
