What should I expect when I start my dreads with short hair in backcombing?

It will be harder to hold the hair to backcomb it and you should make sure you use rubber bands on the tips to hold the knots together. At one point you will feel like your dreads aren’t going to form, but don’t give up, they will lock up soon.
It is really hard to get good results with short hair, there isn’t enough hair to hold the knots together, my advice is use the backcombing method if you are Caucasian or Asian, or use the comb rubbing method if you are African, or wait until your hair is longer.
