Hey all, I'm just curious how many dreads you have. Do you have less now than you started with (congos)? I think I have like 53, they are 2 weeks old. How long was your hair and how much length did you lose? These are interesting questions because everybody's answer is different and unique to them. My hair goes halfway down my back and I havn't lost much length, but I'm sure I will when they tighten up.
