Canadianhippie--we're using the same method with our DS (he's 2 and a few months.) He has super fine hair and I was pretty certain that it wouldn't dread, but I just gave up brushing (not worth the screaming!) and low and behold.....he's got dreads! It's a pretty wild mess in the back right now---he hates having his hair played with so it looks like the dreads will just have to keep forming on their own. He gets mistaken for a girl quite a bit as well.
