    I want to get mine as soon as possible, but I've seen 1 inch dreadies before and they look like ass. So what's the best length to dread up?

    P.S. I'm at 1.5 inches.

    not an inch, but short is nice because they will become really really tight as they grow very quickly, easy maintinence for the time maintinence is needed. I grew my hair out from scratch withno combs or anything, and they locked up very very tightly and continued to grow very tightly from the root.

    Ok, so the majority is between, 7 - 30 inches. That's cool. I'll probably do 'em up at maybe 5 inches.

    P.S. Could I let 'em go natural if I use dread shampoo?

    Mine was about four inches in the front. The back was about half an inch long.. I just let that grow out and it locked by itself.

    I had the trendy long front, spiky back thing goin' on.

    Mine was between 1 and 5 inches depending on the location on my head. The 5 inch places are doing fine but all the backcombing on the short ones came out. I just left that hair loose (it's at the base of my skull) and I figure it'll do what it wants when it wants.

    so, as for methods, you can backcomb, use the special shampoo, or just barely ever wash your hair? are there more than that? roughly how long would each of those take? my hair is roughly 3 inches, well right at the bangs zey are, at least thats what my mom just told me....(she dont know i want them)....would that be long enough to begin one of these methods?

    Yeah, that's pretty much what happened with mine. The back has formed itself into some nice fatties.. but I still have a lot of loose, straight hair around my neck.
