You mean you kept backcombing it for two months? It's only meant to be once and then that's it. Maybe you did them too tightly with all the backcombing that they're loosening themselves so they can dread, so they're looking a bit frizzy? I'm not too sure, because I don't have the same hair type as you, but I think it looks pretty normal for in the beginning. They'll look more like dreads as time goes on :)

My dreads always came out after about 3 weeks so every three weeks I'd get it retwisted via the backcombing method. Then I stopped and let them dread naturally for 2 months and was wondering if I'm on the right track.

Every time you backcombed...you started from day one again. A starter method is like a pencil sketch. It is just an outline to the beautiful painting just waiting to happen. You did the sketch....let your hair finish the painting. It has to go through different stages to get from the sketch to the painting. If you just keep sketching it over and over.....you just end up with holes in your paper and the painting will never happen.

The photo looks like your hair is starting to dread. Just give it time and patience. :D

They do come loose, that's just how they start dreading, even though that sounds counter-productive. They dread well if you leave them alone, so backcombing kept undoing the progress it was making. So yeah, it looks fine, they are dreading, just that they're in their early days, so don't look completely like dreads yet. Stay patient, it'll get there :)
