I wanting to cut my hair cause it's getting long but not lose the dreads (7months) i would like to keep some maybe a patch or a few strands. What are you thoughts of keeping some? I've braided a strand of hair which I'm planning to keep as my own style just behind my ear but would like to also have dreads. keep a dread fringe? or a few rat tail dreadies? or maybe just cut the dread shorter? i dont know..
