Hi everyone! I've been lurking on the site and I have liked what I've seen so i decided to join. I'll bet you've seen this many times but I've been feeling down about how my dreads are coming along. I started using the backcombing method with wax (but stopped using it after 1 week, having only reapplied it once) and seeing how rapidly they came undone has kinda left me unsure. Everyone likes to tell me about how they aren't dreads and how I must have ruined them, but they won't listen to my defenses and explanations. The hair in the back has dreaded nicely but virtually all of the other hair is still very loose. Any advice because most of the other pictures that I've seen of people who are 4 months in look much better than mine. Just for reference I use BS & ACV rinse every one to two weeks and a spray shampoo about twice a week, although maybe doing it more often would help. I separate congos about twice a week and palmroll about once a week, but only on the ones that are very loopy. The first picture is day one, next two are 4 1/2 months in, and there are others on my profile.
