sketchymagpie: Dreads typically go through a stage of shrinkage before they start to grow. This is because the hair is compressing together. Typically, it might take around about a year before you start to notice actual growth. Dec 21, 2016 10:01:13 GMT

dreadredkroovy: I'm currently combining some teensy weensy dreadies into larger ones! Oct 10, 2016 14:52:19 GMT *
MacabreMagpie: It's also possible to combine dreads later on if you don't like the thickness. Come post photos on the forum if you want more in-depth advice :) Oct 5, 2016 11:02:13 GMT
MacabreMagpie: Katie (who I'm sure doesn't have a fish face ;p), the dreads will grow no thicker than the size of the section and usually smaller. How many dreads/sections do you have? I think most people have around 30-40, but there are those with nearer 100 too. Oct 5, 2016 11:01:52 GMT
