They're each about 3+ inches in diameter at the base. They originally started out as 5 dreads each on either side but ate each other up from the root down and combined into one big fatty on each side.
I started my dreads Sept. 3, 2006, for those that are wondering.
But wait......there's more. They are much more flexible than that!
Damn, I look so tired. I need to go to bed early tonight. Yah, right.
