Neglect questions/tips

Hi everyone!
So I officially stopped brushing my hair back in December 2016 and have been going for the neglect method. It was only about 1-2 months ago that I got some dread shampoo and have seen some more knots since starting to use that.

However I still feel like he knotting process is going pretty slow. Does anyone have suggestions on washing/drying and sleeping habits that can help the knotting process?

Also I work in fast food and have to wear my hair up during my shifts. Is this probably a hinderance as well?

Thanks! I totally feel like my hair is doing what yours was doing at the beginning. Do you still use the charcoal detox shampoo? And do you recommend it?
I wanted to try to rotate through a couple different ones to see which one I like best.

For some reason the charcoal detox bar was the only shampoo that helped knot I also ordered the liquid version but it leaves my hair really smooth :$

Haha! best thing I can say is PATIENCE!! :P

Mine also took/are taking a long time. I've got significant dreading now, but still lots of loose sections. The first time I noticed a major change was when I flew and laid my head on an airplane pillow for the 16 or so hours. Yeah, that really caused a lot of friction. I wanted to bring home the pillow!! Not exactly sure of the material, but it was a bit scratchy (comfortable, but scratchy-good for dreading) haha!

then since, I've been on and off using a tightening spray (once or twice a week at most)

I also changed up my shampoo too. Lush Seanick bar. It has sea salt in it, so it's really good for knotting, whilst still conditioning.

PATIENCE! ;)

What tightening spray do you use? Also I usually like to wear my hair up while I sleep. I actually think I've seen more knots from when I do this. But do you have any tips to help with friction and stuff while sleeping?
