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*
