How many Dreads do I use on my head?

We often get the question “How many Dreads do I need for my head?’ 
A logical question, but the answer is not so easy to give. This depends on different factors. First, which dreads are you going to use? But also; is your hair ‘thin’, ‘thick’ or ‘normal’ in volume.

Do you have normal hair?
