I've been considering dreads for a while. Recently, however, I chopped most of my hair off and it's pixie-cut short. My question is, how long in your experience does hair have to be to start dreads? What are my options? If I were to get extensions, could I dread those? (I read a little bit about synthetic dreads, but I didn't see an example where the person had really short hair to begin with.)
I wouldn't be against waiting until my hair grows out, I was just wondering if there was anything I could do sooner rather than later, partially because I've only recently decided that I definitely want to do it, and partially because I'm not looking forward to those awkward stages that occur when growing hair out.
