Congrats, natural is the way to go anyways...
Mine has the same problem but which I'm not trying to dread my bangs anyways though. It does take patience for some and some just dreads faster than others. Try washing your face with a BS wash a few times a day.
I started my third set last December and my son will be 4 this March. I don't get any remarks stating I'm a bad parent for having or wanting my locs again. YES PATIENCE is key to it all. I know a lot of people that don't have the patience that I have, but I also have some friends that thought it was weird for a country girl like myself doing dreads, as time went by they are loving them so far always touching or playing with my hair. lol
I say keep on dreading mama...

separate when you feel you need too. are you going natural? if so dont worry about it for a couple months. give your hair time to section naturally and begin locking. once you start seeing knots then pay little more attention to them.
I have about 4 tnrs lefted out of 12. Now it's all natural since then.
also the ones that look gnarly at first, like the ones that form 'paddles' or 'flat poofballs' on the end, usually dread up quickest. they look funky at first but its worth it. you will notice that letting nature take its course produces better looking dreads than you think you can.
Oh don't re-tnr your hair just let your hair do it's thing and dread it's self.
