How long does my hair need to be?


We've had reports of people starting successful locks with as little as three inches of hair. You've got to work a little harder to keep those little guys together, but the bonus is that the true dread isn't the hair you've tangled, but what's growing out at your roots and knotting up so you're really getting a head start!

If your hair texture is kinky-coily, you may be able to dread with even shorter hair by using rubbing methods, which pill up your hair into small bundles.

For most people creating their own dreadlocks, about six inches is the easiest minimum to start.
