oh my

Last night I cut my dreads off. I didn't really want to, but I succumbed (sp?) to some fierce bribery and a lot of whining from my friends and family, and it was a bad decision. I'm all sad now, and my hair's SO short and looks like crap. I keep telling myself "It's only hair!" and that at least now I can let it dread naturally this time... but I'm seriously hating it.

In any case, the reason I'm posting is to see if any of you have let your hair go from really short to dreads. Is it better to keep combing it and whatnot as it grows like 'normal' hair to the desired length and then let it dread, or just not comb it at all and let it grow tangly from the start?

That was written terribly, and is probably a dumb question. I hope it makes sense.

Here's some pics of my new dreads, they've been in about ten days now. I started off using wax, but I'm avoiding it now. I used a little on the small ones at the front though as they've a few loose bits, the rest of my hair seems to be taking quite well.
