I'm definitely considering dreads. At first I was thinking of possibly backcombing my hair but now I'm more leaning toward growing them naturally. How long does it take for the dreads to begin to form if you're growing them naturally? Also, what if, for any reason, I have to remove the dreads? I know that shaving your head is a misconception but how do you remove dreads that have already formed? Thank you . I'm looking forward to my possible journey.
