Hey there. I have had my dreads for a year and a month now. My dreadlocks are STILL not mature. They still look messy and I still have dreads that look like I just dreaded them yesterday. I have a super long dread (it hasn't shrunk with the rest of them) that hasn't matured at all. And I've got quite a few that are flat because it's the sides that I sleep on.
Sometimes i just want to brush them out. I wear them up because they look still so messy down. Any advice? I've always read that dreads tend to be mature when a year is up. SO, is this normal? I'm Native American, and I've known many Elders or medicine men and women in my clan to have dreadlocks that look amazing, so it can't be my hair texture.
