I used the jamaican mango and Lime locking gel in it. The dreads are actually not hard...they just refuse to lay back and lay down. they lay every other direction though...smh

I had the same issue for a while mate. Just give them a little time. Mine settled after a few weeks. I had one dread that stuck up for quite a while giving me the alfalfa look haha. It will all settle down soon enough. I do agree with SE though, can the gel. I used wax for a couple of weeks and it did nothing good to my hair. The dreads started to improve once I just let them be.

Peace

Dreadlocks are a great teacher of patience. Sick with it mate! You're still in the early stages, if you're really unhappy you can start over. But that's a big process. They will come together nicely with time!

haha I appreciate it. Everyone keeps telling me that. I guess I feel like I'm going down a dark road hoping itll end where I want it to. I started Feb 8th so HECK no im not starting over. The next start over will be a cut and give up...lol

Hahaha, yeah mate, I know how you feel. I went overboard with the crochet hook in my early stages... my hair is still recovering. Plenty of loose hairs everywhere. But that's a part of the journey! :)
