So jelly of your dreads. I tried to make some sober dreads to celebrate turning 4 months sober last year. They were fun but they didn’t look right, like yours. I had them 8 months. Dunno if I’ll give it another shot after tax season is over. All my dreaded friends that had “good” dreads started with shorter hair. I’ve had some cut off since I pulled mine out so maybe round 2 would be better. shrugs.
