Hello again. I've got a question about roots. Before I went to get my dreads done on Thursday, I didn't have any idea how big each section should be, so when they asked me how big I wanted the dreads to be I just sort of guessed by looking at the size of the locks of hair. I was told that my dreads will probably thicken to about twice the size they are now.

I've been reading a few dreadlock websites this evening. One of them says that each section should be at least .5" x .5" and another says at least 1" by 1". I'd like to know your expert opinions on whether or not my sections are big enough. I want to make sure to avoid breakage.
