Im cruisin along my dread journey with many many happy days. I have recently begun to wear a tam to push them away from my face, but since my dreads are only 2 months old, they kinda stay where the tam sets them for hours after i remove the tam.
Also im just curious about other ways to wear em, so i can go out and try some new stuff!
Headband is my go to. My favorite ones have been stretchy fabric you can tie (so you can adjust the length) or a cut piece of nylon tights. I actually love the tights for tying in a pony tail too. So versatile!
with dreads that young i tried to leave them down to get movement going. but when i had to put them up for work just half ponytail worked fine. right now mine are shoulder ish and not quite long enough to do anything cool. lol. but dreads look cool no matter what anyway!
But nowadays they get stuffed in a hat or tied in a bun. A bit like sweeping rubbish under a carpet. If you don't see it it isn't a problem.
I have actually wore them like this too. I liked it a alot. I have been shoving them in a hair band at work and leaving them down at home. I pont tail them sometimes, but usually i get the ol hair band out now. Its easy and all you can see out the back are the dreads that look like dreads. Its a very awesome illusion that my hair is perfect haha ^-^

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.
