Welcome & nice to meet you.
Don’t quit. Sometimes it takes long. I’ve known people to take upto 18 months to even start locking up. Part of it will depend on your hair tyoe. A big part. Then there is a number of factors also such as how often you wash your hair and with what. but don’t give up. You’ve come this far and sometimes it can be hard or get discouraging but if you wait it out you’ll be happy in the long run.
