Sure your hair will start dreads, they like to knot on hair that is 6 inches or longer. Any shorter thatn that, they will still section, so that's okay, it just takes a little longer to start knotting then. Use a dread friendly shampoo, if you have hard water, then I recommend the shampoo from www.dreadlockshampoo.com, which works in all water types. Read the dreaducation section at the top of the site for tips. So what do you do to start???
its that simple, doing this will grow you awesome healthy dreadlocks, easy huh...peace
