Thinking about cutting loose and starting again.
I think that you should just leave your hair alone and give it time. Condition them and pick them out with a rat-tailed comb if you can... but don't resort to cutting. That will set you waaaaay back. I personally don't think your dreads look bad at all. Eventually, they will dread, you just need to be patient. If you feel that you must resort to cutting, I would only cut off a little bit, off of each dread, every two weeks... like... a gradual process. My hair was permed, (I'm a girl, btw, lol) and i gradually cut off my hair every two weeks as opposed to chopping it all off to grow my hair out naturally to dread it. So... do one of those options instead. My hair is super springy (I'm black Lol) just like yours and I can imagine how it would feel to have to cut off, what took so long to grow.... so weigh out all of your options before you go for the big chop. but trust me... if you leave your hair alone EVENTUALLY it WILL dread.
