Hi everyone. Quick question: how long does my hair need to be for me to dread it AND have it not standing straight up? My hair is about 5-6" long right now and my bangs are a little shorter. I usually wear dread extensions (you can see them a little in the user photo), but I like them so much that I'd like to grow my own. But that said, I really don't want to have short little nubby dreads that make me look like Sideshow Bob either.
