So I've been gradually giving myself dreads over a couple of weeks. I have seven so far (I've been doing it very gradually...) and I haven't combed the rest of my hair since I started, so today I sectioned it out where it was starting to naturally separate. They were a bit big, then, so I split some apart. I didn't go with a scheme like "one inch sections" because when I did my first ones I was shocked at how tiny small sections came out (twist and rip method, btw). My hair looks thick but it's just volume, not actual hair mass. I have 18 sections right now, including the 7 dreads I already did. I'm not looking to have big fat dreads in the end, but I'm also not trying to have dreads like the teeth of a comb. I've read around and 18 is hardly anything compared to most people. Should I split them up more even though they'll be tiny?
