Will this hair ever dread? Feeling frustrated

nobody has ever had the entire head all progress at the same speed..just doesn't happen

always 1 part dreads faster then the rest..typically how you sleep affects what parts dread fastest.. but sometimes its texture or oiliness'

but 99% of the time its simply a matter of trying to sleep on that section

That makes sense.  I will try to alter my sleeping position.  And if it takes awhile it just does :)  at least the rest if the head is looking great! My roots are starting to dreadup this week.

I just need to slow down and enjoy every part of the ride

Just wanted to post an update on this to say that Soaring Eagle and all the rest of you were absolutely right.  It does just take time.  That section of hair is now completely filled with dreads.  They are anywhere from 2-3 inches of knotted tip to all the way to the root and progressing great.  They will be 6 months old in about 2 weeks.

I am trying to get that area cleaner with the dreadlock shampoo by focusing on that section and that has really cut down on the oiliness that I was having.  Today I washed it and had to do a massive separation as everything was trying to knot together down there.

So if you are feeling like your hair isn't progressing just know that time will make it happen.

*peace, love, and happiness*

I was in the same boat hair fell out after back combing. So I left it alone and thought it would never dread up. Took 1 year before it started knotting. So yes time is key. Glad your hair has sorted itself out.
