I started dreadlocks on New Year's (as some of you might remember), when my hair was about 3 inches long. They were twists...and hella delicate. Coincidently (slaughtered the spelling I know), in 3 weeks, this massive random rainstorm hit the area. They didn't stand a chance.
So...I decided to wait. The twists were WAAAAAY to delicate. I'm going to wait for my hair to grow out a lot more. Maybe even shoulder length. At least here, it seems a lot better to wait, because you get the look you want then and there, instead of starting and waiting forever.
My only concern is the shrinkage. Say I wait till the summer to get them done, and they shrink up to barely the top of my head.
What do you guys think?
