    I am considering getting dreads, and am planning on the all nature route.
    My hair is about 5-6 inches right now, and is curly at the ends of them.


    About how does it take for the hair to actually start looking like dreads?
    and about how much progress, on average, would happen in about 2 months?

    thanks for you help. :D

    look around for pictures of other people as they progress, it all depends on the genetics of the person and their curliness, by 2 months i think it would just look like messy hair, on average it takes at least a year for it to start looking a lot like dreads but once again its not a confirmed thing

    saw this too late also
    it can take a year but most take far less
    some take weeks to look like real dreads, i imagine with yourt description 2 monmths will have u pretty well on the way..still lil messy but dreading nicely

    All depends on the individual's hair really. Mine initially started out back combed so I can really give a good estimate on how long it'll take.

    mine seemed like no time at all was too long ago to remember but ..id guess weeks..

    quickest waty to get em is ignore 2 things...time and the progress of your hair
    forget all about both and they happen sooner then u expect em
    one day they'll just be there..you'll be walking down the street and some1 will saynice dreads and your realize holy shit i got dreads
