Brand new.

Hey, I'm new to this community. I've been interested in getting dreads since I was a sophomore in high school, but my mother thought that they're too dirty and stupid shizznit like that (she was perfectly fine with me getting tattoos, but dreadlocks? aaaugh!). So anyway, now that I'm out of the house, I'm going to go for it.

This is where my question comes in. I'd had my hair buzzed for a while, and now it's growing out. It's only about 2 inches now, is that long enough to dread it, or should I let it grow longer? And if I dread it when it's this short, is there anything special I should do to make it dread right?

Cutting Them Off

I decided to cut my dreads off after new years *gasp* I know what a horrid crime! The only reason I'm doing it is because they're not even dispersed across my head, they're all wacky sizes, and I have to keep shaving my undercut. So after I cut them off I'm going to give my hair at least 6 months to grow in a little then I'm going to dread my whole head. I'm gonna do it right this time, not let some stoned hippie do it for me. LoL not that he did a terrible job.... I just got some weird dread patterns with hair from different parts of my head coming together to make one dread, I think that's why its so tough for my roots to dread together cause the hair isn't all coming from one place on my head. We'll I'll be sure to have some pics of how ugly I look without hair, and how my new dreads come out! LoL I can only imagine how good it will feel to be able to fully wash, shampoo, and condition my hair again....
