My best advice is to just let it go.  I did twist and rip method but almost all of them fell out. The ones that were allowed to form on their own look much better and sit better on the head. The more you touch and tweak the more harm you are doing.  They will turn into fret locks as they say ;).  Mine just turned 4 months and are now at the point that I can say, ok these are good, and I can relax.  I don't worry like I did in the beginning weeks.

Keep up with the natural way and i think you will be much happier.  My husband back combed his but wishes he would have gone natural.  His ar 1.5 years old.  

Good luck!

I don't know what you would call these pieces, they're not dreadlocks

theyre curly and my hair seems to shrink even as its growing (the top is much heavier but the back keeps tightening up).

Here are my two week pics. Not sure I see anything happening... but I'm continuing, using dreadlocks shampoo.

The back of your head looked exactly like mine when I started my journey 5 years ago. It was looking at myself lol I cut mine though shortly after that, but in 2013 decided to go for it again.

 So far I'm 25 months in, and just like everyone else will tell you, it takes time. Since you seem to have the same type of hair as mine, you might start to see some sort of progress around your 6-8 month mark. Then again I think that's the norm now for people starting.

Thanks Daniel. What does your hair look like now? Did the curls turn into dreads?

They all sectioned awesomely without any interference. Other than separating often. Though all of my dreads may be knotted up, most of them have around 1-2 inches of loose hair at the tips. Which isn't a bother at all. They're about shoulder length...um I think I need to make a video lol to show the progres
