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.
