my dreads are about 10 days old. im wondering if there's a difference in growth between keeping your dreads down or putting them up. a friend told me it was better to not put your dreads up the first few days or months or so, i forgot his reason. but i was wondering if it was true.

man i sure do miss this community. not to mention my dreads. i really shouldnt have cut them off. if i ever deside to grow dreadlocks again ill make sure that they are well taken care of... maybe once my hair gets longer i wont hate my hair so much (for about a year or so i would just let my hair grow, never brush it, and once it got to long to do that, id cut it off and start over. well right now its to dang short...) i miss all you guys alot...

i just joined this community, and wanted to know if anyone had any good tips or ideas for what i should do with my hair. it's undercut, but i want all of it dreaded and with thicker dreads. should i attempt to comb it out and start again and then dread the underneath when it's long enough? and is that possible if some of the dreads aren't too tight?

does anyone ever go through stages where they really miss their undreaded hair?

i love my dreads, but when i was drawing yesterday, i drew a girl with straight shoulder-length hair... and it made me miss my old hair so much. i'm torn between dreads and no dreads... i wish i could have both.

sigh...
