Wrong.


How long is your hair right now? If its like an average dark ceaser right now then wait till you get a fro with some good length then twist the shit. After you twist it, its gonna lock and start dreading. Once you first twist it it'll proably look like this, http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ2z686EaIuyzc7gqe3xEEOFSHTE6kWi81l4jBuy59oZgivPq_4


And after that, for you to get that wale length it'll proably take a year or 2.

i know im white... but it took almost 2 years to get my dreads this length.

and i washed my shit every day, never twisted shit. i just stopped combing my hair and let nature take its course.

I'm in the process of dreading up right now as well, but I didn't go to a salon or nothing - I just used the towel rub method and I'm letting nature take it's course.

To get Wale length dreads - obviously depending on certain factors - it should take around 2 years of growth. Waka probably 3 years.

EDIT: Cheep, even though he ain't black, pretty much hit the nail on the head.

yeah, i got my ideas about how dreads should be from being friends with rastas. if you go to a salon, or put wax in your shit, or twist em up, they are not dreads. they are pussy bwoi locks.

it'll take you 3-4 months before you can twist, but dreads with length need atleast a year or 2. you can braid or wear the fro in the meantime

breh idk how people can keep that up. I've gotten in the habit of letting my hair go around fall/winter and after 3-4 months my fro be killing me. That shit starts to pull and it's fucking hell for a while. And it's not like it's nappy and locking up cause I would always stay washing and picking it, and I'm hispanic so my nappy is a little less nappy than a black guys. I just don't get how to deal with that
