How can I make my dreadlocks thinner?

The best way to have thin dreads is to make the sections thin when you start them. If the dreads are new (meaning younger than a month old) you can usually rip them apart from the root to the tip and then put a one rubber band after every inch on the dread, wax them, and palm roll as much as you can. Leave the rubber band on the dread for about a week. There really isn’t a good way to thin them once you’ve had them over a month. You can tie string around the roots and make them grow in thinner sections, but if cut them or pull them apart it really tears up the dread.
