Thats what I thought. It seemed a bit crazy. I wonder how the dreads will look and feel in a year or even in a month..

some might survive   but its high risk as  prretty much every hair segments got an average length of  an inch or less  now so they are  extremely weakened   where the dread would have supported 1000 pounds if left alone   5 pounds  would probavbly snnap it off

it can be done  they might even last but if you tyhink logically about what it is your actualy doing   combing out and starting overs the sensible thing to do

SE is right. I admit, awhile back I decided to split one of my dreadlocks in back. It was a complete neglect dread (also my longest) But it started to twist in a manner that was making my head hurt so bad. 

I didn't want to comb it out and restart, so I had my husband cut it down the middle. Now I have two dreadlocks that are completely destroyed. They are still dreaded nice near the base, but it will be a long time before I am able to see a normal dreadlock from them again.
