Your hair looks like it is doing well! It looks like strands are starting to make friends and clump together? Just leave them to do their thing.
A few things you could try to help them form:
- Spray them with a sea salt solution a few hours before washing (or better yet, swim in the ocean if you can).
- Keep them free of oils, I don't know how often you wash your hair but clean hair dreads faster and try not to touch them that only spreads the oils!
- Wear a wool hat
I'm glad to hear that you removed the wax! That stuff is a pain!
